Ottawa: Canada is postponing a trade mission to India that federal Trade Minister Mary Ng (ING) had spent the past four months promoting as key to the government’s Indo-Pacific strategy.

Earlier this week, Saskatchewan Trade Minister Jeremy Harrison claimed Ottawa left provinces in the dark for months over the status of trade talks with India.

Harrison says today’s meeting gave him no further clarity, nor did a separate call with Ng on Thursday.

India’s envoy to Canada Sanjay Kumar revealed two weeks ago Ottawa had paused the trade talks, and to date neither country has provided a detailed explanation. — The Canadian Press
