Ottawa, Apr 27 (Canadian-Media): Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will accept an honorary doctor of laws degree from New York University during his three-day trip to the United States (U.S.) next month.
"We live in a time of tremendous change and face challenges global in scale. Finding solutions shaped across borders, involving every generation, is imperative," Trudeau said in a statement. "I look forward to visiting the United States to speak with graduates and those at the forefront of innovation to look at what we can, and must, do to build a better tomorrow for future generations."
Trudeau would reportedly speak to graduates at the New York University's 186th commencement ceremony, and will address the Economic Club of New York to promote investment in Canada.
During May 16-18 visit to Boston, Trudeau will reportedly highlight the strong economic partnership between the United States and Canada and the importance of working together to find solutions to global challenges.
