Two agencies in Windsor, ON, say they hope new agreements signed in India will boost the local and Canadian manufacturing industries.

The Canadian Association of Mold Makers (CAMM) and the Windsor-Essex Economic Development Corporation (WEEDC) have announced the signing of memoranda of understanding with the Engineering Export Promotion Council of India and the Tools and Gauge Manufacturer’s Association of India (TAGMA).

The two Canadian agencies say the agreements are the first of their kind between Canada and India, reports Blackburn News.

“The signing of the agreements between TAGMA, EEPC and CAMM is the first step to bringing two already successful industrial economies together to build partnerships focused on harnessing the strengths of our two industries to create a mould-making superpower on a global scale,” said Jonathon Azzopardi, president of CAMM.

“We expect this relationship will be of mutual benefit to Windsor-Essex and Indian companies,” said Rakesh Naidu, CEO of WEEDC. “We have identified specific areas of interest and will work collaboratively to take this forward. The time is right for Canada and India to work together.”
