The Prime Minister of Australia, Mr. Anthony Albanese, will visit India starting on March 8th for 4 days with the goal of enhancing overall bilateral involvement in a number of areas, including commerce, investment, and essential minerals. As the country’s new prime minister since May last year, this is going to be his first trip to India.
The “Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEA)” announced that the Australian Prime Minister will visit India from March 8 to March 11. He is going to visit at the invitation of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Together with a significant corporate delegation, Don Farrell, “Minister of Commerce and Tourism,” and Madeleine King, Minister of Resources and Northern Australia, will accompany him. According to the MEA, Mr. Albanese will arrive in Ahmedabad on March 8, on the occasion of the Indian festival Holi. On March 9, he would travel to Mumbai before continuing on to Delhi.
On March 10, a formal welcome will be given to Mr. Albanese on the front lawn of Rashtrapati Bhawan.
After that, Mr. Modi and Mr. Albanese will meet for their annual summit to talk about cooperation possibilities under the India-Australia “Comprehensive Strategic Partnership” in addition to local and global matters of shared interest. In recent years, there has been an improvement in relations between Australia and India.
In June 2020, the two nations’ strategic alliance reached the status of a “comprehensive strategic partnership.” The MEA released a statement in which it stated that it expected Prime Minister Albanese’s visit to give the comprehensive strategic relationship more energy.
