H.E. Nadir Patel

High Commissioner of Canada in India & High Commission of Canada, New Delhi

I am absolutely delighted to be here and honoured to represent Canada at Municipalika. Canada is very proud to be the Partner Country for this year’s event. We have a strong delegation of over 40 delegates and 20 companies and they represent some of the best that Canada has to offer. Through events such as Municipalika, stakeholders, municipal bodies, academics. Practitioners, citizens and the private sector can all come together and discuss solutions that will help Indian cities thrive. This is also an excellent occasion to discuss global practices. The Canadian companies that are participating in Municipalika are looking forward to finding the right project and partner to contribute to sustainable urban development in India and many of those companies have already been active here for some time.
