Australia looking forward to strengthen ties with India:Abbott

Melbourne, Oct 28 (PTI) Australia is looking forward
to strengthen trade and economic ties and converging strategic
interests with India, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said today.
Abbott's remarks came ahead of his counterpart Narendra
Modi's visit to Australia next month, the first Indian Prime
Minister to visit the country since 1986.
During his visit, Modi will address the Australian
Parliament on November 18, after attending G20 Leaders' summit
in Brisbane, Abbott said in a statement.
"This follows my recent visit to India and I look forward
to continuing our discussions on strengthening trade and
economic links and our converging strategic interests," the
Australian Prime Minister said.
Abbott said that the leaders of five of Australia's key
partners – French President François Hollande, Chinese
President Xi Jinping, Germany's Federal Chancellor Merkel, UK
Prime Minister David Cameron and Modi would be visiting the
country as guests of the federal government, coinciding with
the G20 Leaders' Summit.
Parliament will be recalled for formal addresses by Prime
Minister Cameron on November 14, President Xi Jinping on
November 17 and Prime Minister Modi on November 18, Abbott
said.
Modi will be the first Indian Prime Minister to visit the
country since late Rajiv Gandhi, who visited in 1986.
Modi will visit Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne.
Preparations are in full swing in Sydney where Modi will
address a huge gathering of Indian diaspora on November 17.
The event has been organised by Indian Australia
Community Foundation (IACF).
"We were pleasantly surprised when we got 21,000
registrations within a span of three days, which is quite high
than number of registrations at a similar event in the US. The
population of Indian Diaspora in Australia is one tenth
compared to America," IACF spokesperson Balesh Singh Dhankhar
said.
"IACF has partnered with hundreds of community, social,
religious and linguistic organisations that represent the
incredible diversity and pluralism that defines India and
three hundred thousand Indian-Australians," Nihal Agar,
President of IACF, said. PTI
