Canada is pleased to be the partner country for the CII 2017 Technology Summit to be hosted by the Government of India. Canada is an innovative world leader in the development of new technologies. Some of our strengths range from Telecommunications Equipment and Services, through to Digital Media and Video Games development, and particularly to Big Data Analytics and Enterprise Software Solutions. Our technologies ensure safe and efficient transportation on roads, rail, or air; offer clean and green ways to generate power and treat waste; and deliver clean fresh water around the world. We invest heavily in our innovation ecosystem by supporting new and emerging companies and by openly welcoming the best and brightest talent from around the globe. As such, Canada wants to work with India, with Indian companies, and Indian entrepreneurs to develop new cutting edge technologies and enterprises that will lead inclusive growth around the world.

Canadian communities consistently rank as the most intelligent and sustainable in the world. In 2016, Montreal was named the 'smartest city in the world' by the Intelligent Community Forum, a global research think tank. Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal are among the world's most sustainable cities, according to the London-based Centre for Economic and Business Research. Canadian companies have played a significant role in the development of world class cities in Canada and around the world through a focus on robust infrastructure using home–grown expertise. Canadian companies are ready to share their expertise and experience with key partners in India.

Two-way foreign direct investment figures between Canada and India have increased dramatically in the last few years. When we factor in private equity investments from large institutional investors such as pension funds, Canadian investment into India has grown multi-fold and now stands at an estimated $13-14 billion. This is a marked increase to investment patterns prior to 2015, which tended to reflect only direct investment and was skewed in favour of investments from India into Canada. Canada welcomes foreign investment and offers several competitive advantages including its economic strength - stable financial system, low operating costs, the lowest corporate tax environment in the G7, a highly educated and competitive workforce, R&D incentives, and access to the NAFTA market.

"Canada has long been at the forefront of innovation. It has a long tradition of finding innovative ways to drive prosperity, help build clean and sustainable cities, and find solutions to pressing problems related to areas such as health, water, infrastructure and climate change. There are several successful Indo-Canadian research and development projects that benefit the larger society. We hope to see more of this kind of cooperation using cutting edge technology in the years to come."

Over the past year, Canada-India trade and investment figures have reached all-time highs. Trade has grown by nearly 30% to reach CAD 8.2 billion in 2015 and Canadian investment into India has increased by approximately 400%, taking into account several large institutional investors such as pension funds. In addition, the recent successful visit of Canada's Minister of Natural Resources to India along with a business delegation is a perfect example of how Canadian expertise in clean technologies and renewable energy is meeting the high energy demand in India's growing economy.

"Canada has long been at the forefront of innovation. Using our innovative spirit, we have developed incredible transportation infrastructure, built sustainable cities, digitally connected every part of our large country and trained our workforce. In this respect, Canada has the capacity and expertise to support many of India's visionary initiatives. We are actively engaged in key initiatives such as Smart Cities, Digital India, Skilling India and infrastructure redevelopment. Our long tradition of finding innovative solutions can help India build clean and sustainable cities, and meet pressing challenges related to health care, clean water, and climate change. Already there are several successful Canada-India research and development projects that benefit the larger society and we are always looking for more ways to collaborate for the betterment of our societies."

We have seen unprecedented success since I last spoke to you. In 2014-2015, trade statistics say that we've seen 32 per cent increase in 2-way trade between Canada and India, in one year. It went from CAD 6.8 billion to CAD 8.2 billion. We saw roughly 34 per cent growth in exports from Canada. Two way investments have hit record levels as well.
