Your bring vision, youth and energy to your leadership, which will no doubt sustain and strengthen Canada’s success at home and abroad. Your leadership will also be of great significance for the world at a time of many global challenges.
I fondly recall our meeting in April during my visit to your great country. I was particularly struck by your desire to deepen our multifaceted ties, anchored in a common framework of democracy, pluralism, rule of law and close people-to-people relations.
Relations between India and Canada have made remarkable progress in recent years and were elevated to the level of strategic partnership during my visit. Canada has emerged as an important and reliable partner in India’s socio-economic transformation. Our partnership is not only blessed with enormous potential for mutually beneficial bilateral cooperation across a wide range of areas, it can also help shape a more peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. I look forward to working closely with you to further expand and deepen the relationship between our two countries in the years ahead.
I take this opportunity to once again extend a cordial invitation to you and your family to pay an official visit to India. I look forward to welcoming you in New Delhi.
