The two countries on Friday signed six new pacts covering the education, energy defense, telecommunication, sports and counter-terrorism sectors.

“India and Canada can work together in every sector. We discussed many issues, including defense cooperation. Terrorism and extremism are a threat to countries like ours and to fight these elements, we should come together,” Modi said during a joint press conference.

He said he looked forward to building on the historic relationship that connect Canada and India to deepen their socio-economic ties as well as expanding Canadian investments in India.

“We have the responsibility to set the right parameters to make the economy benefit everyone, and not just the rich. India-Canada partnership must create jobs,” Trudeau said.

He went on to say that “India is a natural partner and a trusted friend for commercial cooperation”.

The two countries renewed their memorandum of understanding to enchance opportunities for Indian students engaged in higher education in Canada.

Canada and India also agreed to boost tourism and people exchange.
