Alberta Premier Alison Redford has signed a deal to increase trade relations with the Punjab state in India.

Redford signed the deal while on a trade mission to the Asian country.

The agreement addresses agriculture and animal genetics, and will establish a working group to expand trade ties on other projects.

A similar agreement was signed earlier in the trip by Redford and the Indian state of Meghalaya.

The province estimates more than $102-million worth of products and services are exported from Alberta to India each year.

Redford will tour India for the rest of the week before heading to Switzerland for the World Economic Forum.
