Attracting investment from India to Toronto
A delegation of over 100 government officials, policy makers and industrialists from India will be in Toronto to explore trade and investment opportunities during India Calling 2008.

The India Calling delegates will participate in a full-day conference including a series of sector sessions hosted by Toronto organizations; pre-arranged, one-on-one business meetings and site visits. The event is focused on education, energy, financial services, technology including ICT (information and communications technology), and infrastructure.

The City is co-sponsoring the event, and City staff from the International Investment Services program will speak to potential investors on how to establish a Toronto-presence, and the advantages on doing business in Toronto.

“This visit and conference will provide the opportunity to build strategic business partnerships between India and Toronto,” said Mayor David Miller. “The visiting delegation will have a chance to learn first-hand about Toronto’s investment potential and the unlimited business opportunities the two countries have to offer.”

India Calling 2008 co-ordinates and aligns the efforts and strategies of the City’s Agenda for Prosperity and supports local network and relationship development, as well as intelligence sharing to generate global opportunities for Toronto businesses. Site visits to show Toronto to the India delegates include: TSX, Mars, George Brown College and a tour of the Toronto Harbour Front.

India Calling 2008 is being led by the Indian Merchants Chamber (IMC), one of India's premier business organizations. The two-day event beginning on June 16 will be held at the Delta Chelsea, 33 Gerrard St. W., Toronto.
