Ontario announces first agri-food trade mission to India

Jeff Leal, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs and Michael Chan, Minister of International Trade, will travel to India this fall to create new economic opportunities for Ontario's agri-food industry while strengthening trade and exploring areas for future co-operation.

The mission will build on Premier Kathleen Wynne's successful mission to India in early 2016 and will focus on strengthening agri-food trade relationships with India, home to the world's second-largest population and a rapidly growing economy. Identifying new trade markets and partners will help boost Ontario's agri-food industry and increase exports.

The mission to India will take place November 13-20, 2016, and will include visits to New Delhi, Mumbai and Chandigarh. Representatives from Canadian trade organizations, commodity groups, food and beverage processors and the feed sector will join Ontario's delegation.

Building new relationships to help Ontario's agri-food businesses compete globally is part of the government's economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part plan includes helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by expanding access to high-quality college and university education. The plan is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, roads, bridges and transit in Ontario's history and is investing in a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.
