India, Canada to discuss FTA during Kamal Nath’s visit
OTTAWA: India will hold discussion on a free trade agreement (FTA) with Canada during Union commerce minister Kamal Nath’s visit to that country next month. Indian high commissioner to Canada R L Narayan said that “this would be first high level discussion on this issue.” He said both countries had already concluded a bilateral investment protection and promotion agreement last summer. An expert committee of Canadian council of CEOs and CII, set up last year to evolve strategies to strengthen bilateral relations including an FTA, would soon finalise its report, he said.
