Rudd has outlined an India Country Strategy with a vision of developing Australia's relationship with India by 2025 across community, business and government, the Indian Sun reports.
The strategy outlines a plan for deepening cultural understanding with India by teaching and increasing fluency of Hindi in Australian schools to develop cultural awareness, the report added.
According to the report, it also aims to achieve a threefold increase of the two-way trade between the nations by 2025, with India becoming one of Australia's top-five trading partners.
He mentioned that the greatest symbol of the ties between the two nations was the contribution and success of more than 450,000 'Indian Diaspora' that reside in Australia, becoming the fourth largest migrant community in the nation.
However, the opportunities and challenges Australia would face, when engaging with India, could vary depending on the rate and quality of growth n the country.
India's growing middle class, estimated to reach 606 million by 2030, is creating new opportunities for Australian exporters.
The Indian Government has set a target of providing skills training to 500 million workers across 30 sectors in India by 2025.
Both the governments are planning to enhance vocational training partnerships between their education providers, including in-market and low-cost delivery models.
