Haryana can get Horticulture University from Canada


As an initiative to develop smart cities, Canada has shown interest in developing the first Horticulture University in Haryana. Such an initiative will explore the possibilities of a joint venture between Canada and Haryana. A high-level Canadian delegation led by High Commissioner Nadir Patel met the Haryana Chief Minister Monohar Lal Khattar to explore the possibilities of a joint venture that could help build smart cities in India.  A horticulture University, a first of its kind, shall be setup in Haryana, as has been offered by Nadir Patel. Such a venture will strengthen the ties between the two countries and it would also help Haryana reach the global standards.

Apart from setting up Horticulture University, interest has also been shown by Canada to be involved in numerous other sectors such as defence technology, education, micro irrigation, skill development, renewable resources, health and industry sectors.

“I look forward to join hands with Canada for development of Haryana through all possible partnerships between governments, companies and educational institutions. We are particularly looking for specialization in skill development of our youth so that they become more employable”, as has been recorded in the official statement released by the Chief Minister of Haryana.

One of the major agendas of the Chief Minister was also to tap solar power to use it for the betterment of the state. A target of generating more than 4,000 MW of solar energy from private units, including rooftop plates, has been set as a target to achieve.

To boost the mutual cooperation between Canada and India, Nonstop flights between Toronto and New Delhi would be started from November 3.
