Business Environment

The Government of Canada and EDC view India as a priority market and are working closely with partners, trade associations and Canadian exporters to capitalize on the business opportunities available in both the public and private sectors. While infrastructure development remains a key priority in India there is also large demand for goods and services that fall within the automotive, healthcare, information & communication technology, oil and gas and renewable energy sectors. We welcome new inquiries on potential support for Canadian export and investment opportunities.
