Indian Investors and Canadian Suppliers Panel

Moderated by Marvin Hough, Executive-in-Residence, Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa


The 2009 Telfer India Forum Panel will be an unique opportunity for companies large or small, to gain insight into the challenges and opportunities in doing business in India or with Indian firms. The 1.5-hour panel will draw on experts from both Canadian firms who have succeeded in the Indian market and Indian firms who have invested in Canada and globally. The panel will include representatives of Aditya Birla Minacs, ICICI Bank Canada, the TaraSpan Group and Eion Wireless who will field questions related to a) the general business environment in India today b) the current state of Indo-Canadian business collaboration and c) opportunities for Canadian firms to partner with Indian companies who are going global  Through the Teleforum, you will have the opportunity to raise questions under each of the areas noted above and seek guidance as to how to tackle the Indian market and whom to contact for support and guidance. Don't miss this unique opportunity.

The panel is part of a half-day event being hosted by the Telfer School of Management, in partnership with the Indo-Canada Ottawa Business Chamber.  It involves senior business and government leaders from Canada and India and is designed to help Canadian companies better understand how to engage with Indian companies as they play an ever growing role in the global marketplace.


If you cannot be at the live event in Ottawa, then interacting with the Panel by TeleForum is the next best thing!  You will get a heightened awareness of the current business environment in India, insight into the areas of focus in Canada - India commercial collaboration and an awareness of those Indian companies who are going global and the opportunities to do business with them.

The panel is being led by Marvin Hough, a former Vice-President for Asia at EDC and Canadian Trade Commissioner in India.
