PM moves to strike trade deal with India on nuclear goods


On the first day of a three-day trip to India, Prime Minister Stephen Harper told business audience in Mumbai that the $5 billion currently flowing between the nations isn’t nearly enough and that the two countries should work on expanding their business relationship. Harper notably
plans to meet with Indian leaders later this week to discuss a nuclear co-operation agreement between Canada and India. Should the talks prove successful, they could result in the first agreement between the two countries to trade nuclear goods since 1974, when India used Canadian technology to test a nuclear bomb. Harper also said he hopes to increase Indian tourism to Canada, and ended his visit to Mumbai on a light note by clapping along with dancers on the set of Dance Premier League, India’s version of So You Think You Can Dance.
