Maharashtra, Canada to work on urban infrastructure, smart cities
11 November 2016 Current Affairs: Maharashtra government has signed an agreement with Canada to implement a joint action plan on urban infrastructure development in the state. 

The Canada-Maharashtra action plan seeks to introduce companies, solutions and financing from the North American country for urban development and implementation of state-led infrastructure projects. 

The plan envisages supporting Indo-Canadian partnerships, including private sector companies, universities and colleges to speed up project implementation, promote economic development and contribute to rising standards of living in the state.
