Global Market Trends – Building capacities and growing our markets at home and abroad

Indo Canada Chamber of Commerce is organizing a seminar on Ontario’s Agri Food Sector overview and emerging export markets. The agri-food sector is a major player in Ontario's economy. It currently generates $34 billion a year in gross domestic product (GDP) and sustains 740,000 jobs - about one in every nine jobs across the province. Expanding the export growth of the province's agri-food businesses is part of the government's plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs.

The seminar will put light on the sector and how the small and medium businesses can play a bigger role in promoting the exports.
