Trudeau's visit may ease investment channels

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will not meet with the Indian politician who has publicly accused members of Trudeau's cabinet of being connected to the Sikh separatist movement

India is the world's second-largest country by population and one of the world's fastest growing economies - one that's expected to overtake Great Britain later this year to become the fifth largest in the world.

Significantly, Amarinder Singh had earlier refused to meet Candian Defence minister Harjit Sajjan during the latter's visit to Punjab previous year.

Mr Trudeau will also visit Agra, Amritsar, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, besides Delhi. "We will give him a warm welcome and honour him as per Sikh tenets", said Roop Singh.

Trudeau will be leading a high-powered delegation consisting of Minister of Defence Harjit Singh Sajjan, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains, Minister of Small Business and Tourism Bardish Chagger, Minister of Science and Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities Kirsty Duncan, and Minister of Infrastructure and Communities Amarjeet Sohi.

Amarinder Singh had last week said that he was looking forward to meeting the Canadian Prime Minister. Nonetheless several gurdwaras in Canada have barred Indian officials from entering the premises.

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski not coming back for Raiders
Tavecchio made $465,000 last season on a one-year deal compared to Janikowski's $3 million (after a $ 1 million pay cut ). Over the course of his career, he would convert on 414 of 515 field goals.

Canada is also a leading education destination for Indian students, and India is the second largest source of global students, an estimated 124,000 in 2017, as per official figures.

Sources also said while more work needs to be done before the FIPPA can be concluded, Trudeau's visit may give the necessary push to the issue, which has become a sore point in the bilateral trade and economic ties.

Sajjan is accompanying Trudeau on this trip.

Earlier this month, India increased the import tariff on chickpeas to 40 per cent, up from the 30 per cent imposed in December to help producers deal with dropping commodity prices. This is the first time that Trudeau is travelling with his entire family, his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and three kids aged 3, 9 and 11.
