Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that he would travel to India from November 3 to 9. He would be accompanied by Ed Fast, minister of international trade and minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, Joe Oliver, minister of natural resources, Gerry Ritz, minister of agriculture and agri-food, Bal Gosal, minister of state (sport), and Tim Uppal, minister of state (democratic reform), along with representatives of business and cultural sectors.


"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.
