made through Minister Pupatello's leadership and will be working hard to seal
deals and bring jobs back to Ontario."
"Companies here in India recognize that Ontario companies have the
resources and expertise they need to help them enter new markets and increase
India's position as a serious automotive producer," Pupatello added.
Pupatello also spoke with senior executives with the Tata Group of
Companies, one of India's most respected business conglomerates, about mergers

mission to India last January and that's why we've returned here now to follow
up on the leads we generated and to work toward new deals." Pupatello said.
"We're working hard to secure and generate high-value jobs for Ontarians."
