India, Canada to get unlimited flight connections soon
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced an agreement with India that will allow an unlimited number of flights between the two countries.
Trudeau, who took part in the Business 20 event at Bali, Indonesia, ahead of the G20 Summit, said faster and easier movement of goods and people between the two countries will facilitate mutual trade and investment.
"Today, we are announcing an agreement between Canada and India, that will allow an unlimited number of flights between our two countries," he said.
"By making the movements of goods and people faster and easier, will facilitate trade and investment between Canada and India and help our businesses grow and succeed," he added.
Trudeau said Canada is making major investments in the Indo-Pacific that will strengthen its engagement in the long term.
Trudeau said global businesses and commerce need the predictability and reliability that the international rules-based order establishes and Canada will always stand up for it.
The announcement about an unlimited number of flights came on a day India and Canada held their second Consular Dialogue in New Delhi.
The Consular Dialogue mechanism between India and Canada was instituted to discuss and improve consular, visa and mutual legal assistance cooperation, and to strengthen people-to-people contacts.
The two sides held wide-ranging discussions on issues of concern to the Indian community which is the largest diaspora in Canada.
