Toronto: Dharma Prakash Jain, a noted financial professional, has been elected the president of the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC).
Jain, who succeeds Naval Bajaj, was elected at the ICCC’s annual general meeting held in Toronto on July 17.
He will be the 26th president of the ICCC, an organisation dedicated to promote bilateral social, cultural and economic ties between the two countries.
Jain, a finance professional with over 25 years of experience, has been serving on the ICCC board for the past three years, handling finance and affinity programmes.
“The Chamber is a great business and commerce institution with deep roots in the Indian diaspora,” Jain said.
“It has achieved its status as a preeminent organisation of Indo-Canadians because of the sterling contributions of many business and community leaders and is committed to achieve free trade agreement between the two countries,” he said.
Jain said he will steer the body successfully to fulfil its twin mandates of fostering Canada-India trade relations and creating opportunities for Canadians of Indian-origin.
At the meeting, Jagdish Bajaj, Sanjay Makkar, and Ginni Sethi were elected directors for a two-year term.
