"Canada enjoys a strong working and personal relationship with India but we must further strengthen the links between our two countries," Harper said. "India is a growing economy with enormous potential, and expanding our trade and investment links with India will create jobs, growth and long-term prosperity here in Canada."
During his visit, Harper will meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other ministers. This will be Harper's second official visit to India. He will visit Agra, New Delhi, Chandigarh and Bangalore.
