New Delhi [India] Jan 23 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that he is looking forward to the visit of his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau to India in February.

Prime Minister Modi met Trudeau after addressing at the plenary session of the 48th World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.

"Delighted to meet you, PM Justin Trudeau. Looking forward to welcoming you to India next month," tweeted Prime Minister Modi.

Yesterday, the Canadian Prime Minister announced that he will travel to India for a state visit from February 17 to 23.

The visit - which includes stops in Agra, Amritsar, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, and New Delhi - will provide an opportunity for Trudeau to connect with the Indian leaders in government and business, promote empowerment of women and girls, and strengthen Canada and India's close economic ties.

The prime ministers will reaffirm the close friendship between the two countries, and discuss ways to further deepen bilateral cooperation.

Trudeau will also participate in several business roundtables to promote further trade and investment between Canada and India, as Canada works closely with Indian leaders to advance economic opportunities in both countries.

While in India, Trudeau will engage with youth, and visit several landmarks, including the Taj Mahal, Sri Harmandir Sahib (also known as the Golden Temple), the Jama Masjid, and Swaminarayan Akshardham. (ANI)
