Industry in Canada evinced keen interest in making investments in solar power, medicare, services and other sectors in Haryana during an interactive session held at the Indo-Canada chamber of commerce with Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar in Toronto on Sunday, an official release said on Monday.
Khattar is currently leading a high-level official-cum-business delegation to US and Canada to woo investors.
Addressing a gathering of industrialists, many of them Indian-Canadian, Khattar said that both India and Canada had many things in common. "Our ultimate goal is to create maximum employment opportunities for the youth of the state. Haryana is fast growing and it would continue to march ahead. Your contribution is required to maintain and accelerate this pace'', he said.
Outlining the salient features of the state's new enterprise promotion policy-2015, he said, Haryana strove to attract both international and domestic business and investment.
Khattar also invited business executives to 'Happening Haryana', a conclave planned in the state early next year. Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne would be visiting Haryana in January or February next year.
Earlier, Khattar also visited the memorial built in the memory of 329 persons killed in the Air India's Kanishka crash in 1985, most of whom were of Indian-origin, to pay his tributes to them.
