May 10, 2022 - Ottawa, Canada - Global Affairs Canada
Today, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development, spoke with Piyush Goyal, India’s Minister of Commerce and Industry, Consumer Affairs and Food and Public Distribution and Textiles.
During the call, Minister Ng and Minister Goyal noted progress in negotiations on a Canada-India Early Progress Trade Agreement while working toward a Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement.
Minister Ng expressed her appreciation for India’s openness to explore diverse trade issues and advance the long-standing economic and investment relationship between Canada and India—a priority as Canada deepens key partnerships in the Indo-Pacific. As Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine threatens the rules based international order, it is more important than ever for democracies to strengthen ties. With all of Canada’s trade engagements, inclusive growth and human rights lie at the core of Canada’s trade policies.
Minister Ng emphasized the importance of advancing discussions on an investment protection agreement between Canada and India, which would improve predictability and transparency for Canadian investors in India.
