As part of his three-nation tour, Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Sydney on Monday. He will meet with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese during his visit, and he will take part in a celebration of the Indian diaspora in the nation.
Invoking the cordial welcome Modi received during his visit to India earlier this year, Prime Minister Albanese said it was an honour to host him. Given China’s assertive actions and efforts to enlarge its influence, both leaders emphasised the commitment of Australia and India to a stable, secure, and prosperous Indo-Pacific region.
Prime Minister Modi finished his trip in Papua New Guinea, where he had talks with Prime Minister James Marape to improve ties between the two countries, before flying to Australia. They looked into ways to cooperate more effectively in the areas of business, technology, healthcare, and climate change. In order to highlight interregional cooperation, they jointly hosted the Forum for India-Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC) summit.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ 2016 census, 2.8% of Australia’s population is made up of its vibrant and diverse Indian diaspora, which the Australian government has emphasised. The goal of this community celebration in Sydney is to recognise their contribution to Australia’s multicultural society.
