Shimla, Nov 17 Himachal Pradesh and the Canadian province of British Columbia will share technical know-how in the field of energy, forestry, agriculture and tourism, an official statement said here Thursday.
“Himachal Pradesh Chief Secretary Rajwant Sandhu and British Columbia Deputy Minister Diana Hayden signed a ‘letter of intent’ in Chandigarh last (Wednesday) evening,” the statement said.
British Columbia Prime Minister Christy Clark was also present on the occasion.
The ‘letter of intent’ envisages starting developmental programmes of mutual interest in both the countries like exchange of information in the field of energy, forestry, agriculture and tourism.
Himachal Pradesh can make advances in horticulture by importing apple rootstock and can learn more from their hydro system advancement. The other area of mutual benefit is to promote investment and technical linkage between enterprises and projects of cultural, artistic, education and research, it said.
The memorandum of understanding (MoU) would be signed within next six months between the governments, it added.
