Canadian Governor General David Johnston on Friday said the Toronto Stock Exchange was keen on partnering with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), while attending an opening bell event during his week-long state visit to India.


Johnston and his wife Sharon Johnston are visiting the country with the aim of strengthening bilateral and economic ties.

Johnston said that Canada was looking to establish themselves in infrastructure, energy and food security, and education, innovation and entrepreneurship sectors of India.

"More and more of your counterparts at the Toronto Stock Exchange are thinking of India. I am so encouraged to know the many areas in which Canada and India can work together. Canadians are particularly keen to be partners in infrastructure, energy and food security, and education, innovation and entrepreneurship. Canada is committed to increase business with India," said the governor general.

Earlier on Monday, Johnston had met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and delegations from both the countries signed three agreements on bilateral cooperation and economic ties, in the field of biotechnology, filmmaking and education.

Johnston said that Canada was particularly interested in venturing with India and both the countries shared traditions of parliamentary democracy.

"The sub series of education, innovation and entrepreneurship are something in which people of our countries have much to say and do together. A first class study of Canada and India may look like a contrast but when you look deeper, we have important things in common - shared traditions of parliamentary democracy, a commitment to pluralism and strong people-to-people ties. More than 1.2 million Canadians trace their roots to India, five lakh to Punjab and three lakh to Gujarat," said Johnston.
