The Indo-Canadian Business Chamber on Friday said it would invite five students each year from the Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU), Gandhinagar, to work in Indo-Canadian companies in Canada for one month.

The Chamber’s Gujarat chapter has signed an MoU with PDPU in this regard, according to a press release here.

These students will be selected from PDPU’s School of Liberal Studies to work in industries like renewable energy, water and clean technology, food processing, infrastructure, automotive, education, oil and gas, biotechnology, tourism and ICT in Canada.

They will also do research on issues related to Indo-Canadian trade — why the Indian companies are slower than their Chinese counterparts in investing in Canada, how to triple trade between India and Canada to $15 billion by 2015, and provincial mapping of clusters between the provinces of the two countries, Jagat Shah, Chairman of the Gujarat chapter, said.
