Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will give India the assurance of providing coal, uranium, gas and renewable energy technology. The recommitment will come as Turnbull and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet in Delhi on April 10.
This will be the first visit by an Australian prime minister since Tony Abbott’s 2014 trip. The leaders of the two countries will also discuss negotiations concerning the free trade agreement. Both countries have found themselves in what is called a “stockwave” of their respective positions. As a result, talks of a trade between Australia and India have slowed recently.
Education Minister Simon Birmingham, along with a delegation of 27 university vice-chancellors and officials, will also be visiting the country. On the agenda will be an endeavour to strengthen Australia’s second largest export to India.
