Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull yesterday released the India Economic Strategy.
Chaired by former DFAT Secretary Peter Varghese, the document outlines a confident vision for the future of economic relations between Australia and India. At the same time, it warns against complacency, urging us all to do more in pursuit of stronger ties between our two nations.
Since its inception in 2008, the Australia India Institute has found itself at the forefront of this effort.
The report recognises that the Institute is playing an “important role in expanding Australian understanding of contemporary India”. It is particularly pleasing to see the burgeoning New Generation Network highlighted in the India Economic Strategy. The work of NGN early career researchers traverses the 10 key sectors identified in the Strategy as key to enhancing Australia’s economic relationship with India.
