Andrew Scheer, leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, the official opposition in the Federal Parliament, visited the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) headquarters on 19 July 2017 to discuss the Canada India bilateral relations.

Mr. Scheer is the new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. He was first elected Member of Parliament for Regina-Qu’Appelle by defeating the longest-serving member of the House of Commons. He held the position of Speaker of the House of Commons for four years, becoming the youngest Speaker in Canadian history. Andrew has been re-elected in 2006, 2008, and 2011, and since the 2015 election has served as the Official Opposition House Leader.

Mr. Arun Srivastava, President ICCC in his welcome remarks said that the Canada – India relations have been strengthened in the last decade but still a lot more needed to be done to tap the full potential of both the countries.

Mr. Srivastava said that the early completion of the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement is in the interest of both the nations. India is the fastest growing economy and Canada should engage it in getting the maximum benefits for its already developed industrial knowhow and energetic entrepreneurial capabilities.

Mr. Andrew Scheer in his remarks said that his party is closely working with the government and extending the full support to the government on the national issues and the issues in favour of the small and medium entrepreneurs. Canadian economy is doing well and the benefits of the growth should be felt by the common Canadians.
