1. Canada and India enjoy a long and friendly history, demonstrated by decades of political, technological and economic cooperation on the international stage and cultural and community linkages.Both sides recognize the significant progress in all areas of bilateral energy cooperation including hydrocarbons, civil nuclear energy, electricity, renewables and clean technologies. In 2013, our countries established an Energy Dialogue promoting collaboration that provides a strong foundation for today, and for future joint efforts.
Canadians expect and deserve to have confidence in their public institutions. Independence and neutrality are fundamental principles for all of Canada's regulatory institutions, including those reviewing major projects such as the National Energy Board (NEB). Canadians expect all regulatory institutions to address claims that the principles of independence and neutrality are not being respected.
