Peter MacKay making the case for the Atl. Gateway in Toronto this week. Here is a quote from the article (in India):
Indian business and political leaders were very receptive when he outlined “our vision for the Atlantic Gateway – and the economic potential it represents for both our countries”, said MacKay, who is also minister for Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. Indian High Commissioner R.L. Narayan said India was “bullish” on its relations with Canada.
The two countries have signed accords on science and technology cooperation and investment protection, and were working on concluding a free trade agreement. They have also agreed to set up a bio-nano institute for cooperating on developing the technology of the future, he said. Narayan added that Indian companies have made significant investment in Canada.
The problem is that most of those investments are not in Atl. Canada (with the notable exception of AV Nackawic and the Minacs purchase).
