TORONTO, June 27 (Xinhua) -- Canada and India vow to enhance cooperation in a wide range of areas to raise the annual bilateral trade to 15 billion U.S. dollars within the next five years.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh met with his Canadian counterpart Stephen Harper on Sunday during his three-day visit to Canada that started last Saturday.
The two leaders agreed to expand and deepen bilateral relations in economy, education, science and culture.
During Harper's visit to India in November 2009, the two countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding to set up a Joint Study Group to explore the possibility of a comprehensive economic partnership agreement between the two countries.
The group has identified in its report substantial potential economic gains that the two countries could achieve through such an agreement.
Singh and Harper also reaffirmed their commitment to sustained political engagement, high-level exchanges and regular dialogues between the two countries.
