The premier of Canadian province of Ontario, Kathleen Wynne, is scheduled to sign a slew of agreements and memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with the Punjab government in the fields of trade, industry, agriculture and education during her visit to India beginning January 30.

“Wynne is leading a delegation of experts from Ontario’s sustainable development and urban infrastructure, business, and higher education sectors across India to create opportunities for new partnerships,” said a spokesman here.

The delegation will travel to New Delhi, Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Mumbai between January 31 and February 5, the spokesman said.

Among those who will accompany the premier are minister of economic development, employment and infrastructure Brad Duguid, minister of citizenship, immigration and international trade Michael Chan, and associate minister of health Dipika Damerla, besides the members of provincial parliament Harinder Takhar, Amrit Mangat, Vic Dhillon, Indira Naidoo-Harris and Bob Delaney.

“Ontario and India have much in common — we are both committed to making record infrastructure investments that will create jobs and strengthen our economies. We both understand the urgency of creating a sustainable future. I look forward to meeting with political and business leaders to share Ontario’s expertise in priority areas to strengthen our existing partnerships,” said Kathleen Wynne in a statement.
