Pulses were high on the agenda during bilateral discussions between the Prime Minister of India and the Prime Minister of Canada on February 23.  The two governments have released a joint statement committing to work closely together to finalize an arrangement within 2018 to enable the export of Canadian pulses to India free from pests of quarantine importance, with mutually acceptable technological protocols.

The joint statement issued by the Government of Canada and the Government of India also emphasizes the importance of ensuring access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food for all and notes that transparency and predictability of market access conditions, including sharing of information on production of agricultural commodities, are key to advancing the food security goals of both countries. The full statement can be found here.
