This will be Albanese’s first visit to India after assuming the office of Prime Minister of Australia in May last year. Let me tell you, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar visited Australia last week in connection with the preparations for the Australian PM’s visit to India. The official announcement of the Australian PM’s visit to India has not been made yet. However, Albanese mentioned his visit to India in a tweet on Saturday after meeting India’s External Affairs Minister Jaishankar. He tweeted, “Wonderful morning meeting Dr S Jaishankar ahead of his visit to India next month. We discussed our strategic partnership, economic opportunities and the people-to-people ties that enrich our countries.” The expansion of cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region is expected to be discussed during the Australian prime minister’s visit to India, the people said, in the backdrop of China’s growing military might in the region.

He told that promotion of trade, investment and important minerals will be high on the agenda of talks between PM Modi and Albanese. Significantly, in the last few years, the relations between India and Australia have intensified. The India-Australia Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement (ECTA) came into force in December and is expected to help expand two-way trade. Defense and security ties between India and Australia have strengthened over the years. In June 2020, India and Australia elevated their ties to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership and signed a landmark agreement on reciprocal access to military bases for logistic support.
