Canada's Foreign Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird has embarked on a visit to Russia and India as part of the government's trade expansion plan.

Baird began his trip in Russia, where he attended the 24th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Ministerial Meeting.

Baird said: “Our government is pursuing the most ambitious trade expansion plan in our country’s history. We’re aiming to deepen trade and investment ties with large, dynamic and high-growth markets around the world.”

Three days will be spent in India. Baird is scheduled to meet his counterpart, S.M. Krishna, Minister of External Affairs, and representatives of Canadian and Indian businesses.

Baird said of this leg of the trip: “The objective of the India trip is to deepen an already-strong relationship between our two countries."

“Canada remains deeply committed to the negotiations toward the Canada-India comprehensive economic partnership agreement, the administrative arrangements to the Nuclear Cooperation Agreement and the audiovisual co-production agreement. This visit signals a strong commitment to completing these important initiatives.”

Baird will also further advance Canadian interests in educational cooperation, trade and investment, global and regional security, and governance issues while in India.
