Enhancing Canada's Relationship with India and Other Asian Democracies
Canada needs to build strategic alliances with democratic nations who share our values. India is the world's most populous democracy, and Canada has over a million citizens of Indian origin. We are uniquely well placed to benefit from India's economic rise. A strong relationship with India will mean jobs and opportunity here in Canada. While the Liberals are sacrificing human rights considerations and considering free trade with China, Andrew Scheer would prioritize relationships with like-minded democracies in Asia, especially India, as well as Japan and the Philippines. Closer economic and political ties with Asian democracies will be a key foreign policy priority of an Andrew Scheer government.
