The India Canada Business Session was held in New Delhi at the Durbar Hall, Taj Diplomatic Enclave as a part of week long visit by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s to India.
The hospitality extended to me and family is much appreciated and is phenomenal and that’s something I want to talk about today, the similarities in both the countries.
‘Diversity of religion, gender, lived experience enrich us and make our community resilient. If we want to progress as global communities, we must champion diversity and not just because its the nice thing to do but because it spurs innovation,’ Justin Trudeau said.
‘Diversity and innovation are linked, we see it in Canada and India and the rest of the world. The more we bring together, different ideas, perspectives, open ourselves to new ways of doing things and thinking the more we get creative and solve things together the big challenges we are facing,’ he added.
Diversity a crucial element of progress, economic growth must benefit all of our people. ‘Create better labor standards, include women and young people in the work force. Trade investment can be both- profitable and benefits the society, the common people,’ Trudeau said.
‘We need to capitalize on people to people ties we already enjoy, leverage the business and knowledge networks that already exist between our two countries? How do we make sure that Canadians and Indians better invest, better share information, better corporate with the shared goal of economic success? he questioned.
We have to deepen and broaden our historic friendship. This week long trip has led to stronger engagement between Canada and India, he added.
