New Delhi, Aug 29 ANI | 2 months ago

Australian Prime Minsiter Tony Abbott will be visiting India next week to strengthen the strategic partnership between the two countries.

On his first visit to India since taking office, Abbott will visit New Delhi and Mumbai and would also meet senior political leaders, including President Pranab Mukherjee.

Abbott described the visit as an "opportunity to engage with Prime Minister Modi early in the term of his government to increase bilateral cooperation to advance our mutual interests."

The visit will be an opportunity to promote trade and investment and promote the objectives of the G20 summit, to be held in Brisbane in November.

The Australian PM would be accompanied by a group of senior business leaders on his visit to India.

"The delegation reflects the breadth of Australian commercial interests in India and showcases opportunities for further business partnerships," said Abbott.

Australia and India have strong and growing economic and trade ties. India is Australia's fifth largest export market, with total exports of USD 11.4 billion, and there is potential for further cooperation in resources, science, technology and education.

After visiting India, Abbott will travel to Malaysia for talks with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.

"Australia's defence ties with Malaysia are amongst our closest in South East Asia and we feel a deep connection to Malaysia, given shared experiences arising from the MH370 and MH17 disasters," the Australian PM added.
