Posted on 01 December 2010 by admin

Amid the décor of 70s and 80s Bollywood movies, Indo Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC)  held its annual Holiday Dinner and Dance on Sunday. The audience was amused with Autorickshaw and Shiamak dancers’ outstanding performances. (We observed many people singing with Suba Sankaran).

While the mood was jubilant, speeches delivered from the stage had a serious note in them. Mr. Vinay Nagpal, President of ICCC noted that Minister Van Loan had an interactive session with Indo-Canadian businessmen before the initiation of free trade talks between Canada and India to get the input from the community. Conservative MP Patrick Brown highlighted what the Canadian government has done in this regard. Ms. D. Charandasi, Consul (Inf & OCI) & Head of Chancery of Indian Consulate General in Toronto noted that ICCC is the government of India’s partner in hosting a 2 – 3 day trade based event, known as the mini – Pravasi Bharitya Divas next year. 2011 is also the Year of India in Canada whereby IEFA awards will be held in Toronto.

Also present at the event were Dr. Shafiq Qaadri (MPP from Etobicoke North), Amrit Mangat (MPP from Mississauga-Brampton South) and Liberal MP Navdeep Bains (Mississauga South).
