BRAMPTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 9, 2014) - Natural Resources Canada
The Honourable Joe Oliver, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, today spoke at the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce, where he discussed his recent visit to India and emphasized his interest in expanding the Canada-India commercial partnership.
Minister Oliver underscored the strategic complementarity between Canada and India - Canada as a secure, responsible supplier of energy with a need to diversify its markets and India's huge and growing demand for energy and natural resources. Calling Canada a "21st-century natural resource superpower," Minister Oliver highlighted progress in bilateral trade in the nuclear, forest, oil and natural gas sectors.
"Canada is becoming a 21st-century natural resource superpower. In New Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad, my mission was to advance our economic partnership with India - to promote Canada as a safe, secure, reliable market and destination for capital investment. That mission was a success."
