Premier Greg Selinger leaves Sunday to lead a 10-day trade mission to India and to promote the province as an education destination.

He’ll be joined by members of the Business Council of Manitoba and representatives of Manitoba’s colleges and universities.

"Manitoba’s family and cultural connections to India run deep and, as one of the world’s fastest growing economies, India represents huge opportunities for Manitoba businesses," Selinger said in a statement. "Expanding our trade with India means helping Manitoba businesses take their products and expertise overseas, and it means creating jobs for Manitoba families."

Manitoba businesses and professional organizations on the trade mission include representatives from the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce, Westeel, Cubex, Magellan Aerospace, CentrePort Canada, Maxim Truck and Trailer, Johnson Waste Management, RBC, Innovate Manitoba, Yes! Winnipeg, Parenty Reitmeier, World Trade Centre Winnipeg and the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Manitoba.

They’ll be joined by representatives from Red River College, Winnipeg Technical College, Brandon University, the University of Manitoba, the University of Winnipeg and the International Institute for Sustainable Development.

"Working with leaders in the business community and our post-secondary institutions, we’re strengthening our ties and increasing our exports to India and other growing economies," Selinger said. "And the world is taking notice of Manitoba, with more and more firms choosing to set up shop in our province."

The trip includes stops in Delhi and Mumbai along with several smaller centres including Chandigarh, Bhanohar, Sawaddi, Ludhiana, Agra and Ahmadabad.
