Happenings

The relationship between Australia and Andhra Pradesh has been growing rapidly, and there is a great opportunity to deepen ties further.

To boost trade and collaboration by tapping into emerging opportunities, Australia’s Trade and Investment Minister Andrew Robb met Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and discussed potential collaboration between Australia and Andhra Pradesh in a number of key areas of Australian expertise, including mining, infrastructure, dairy, water, education and road safety.

“The relationship between Australia and Andhra Pradesh has been growing rapidly, and there is a great opportunity to deepen ties further. Andhra Pradesh is one of the most forward-looking states in India, and has shown that it is open for business. Australia has a keen interest in working more closely with Andhra Pradesh to expand ties and explore new opportunities for strengthening our economic relationship,” Australia’s High Commissioner to India, Patrick Suckling, said.

Naidu also discussed opportunities in several sectors, including diary, sustainable fisheries, water basin management and infrastructure in his meeting with Australia’s Assistant Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Jamie Briggs and Australia’s Parliamentary Secretary for Agriculture, Richard Colbeck.

As Andhra Pradesh is all geared up to develop its new capital city at Vijayawada, Sean Kelly, Australia’s Consul-General to South India, said: “Australia has strong expertise in the areas of urban development, energy and infrastructure, and we look forward to sharing this expertise with Andhra Pradesh as it develops its new capital city.”

Australia’s Trade and Investment Minister Andrew Robb is in India to lead the Australian Government’s ‘Australia Business Week in India.’ More than 450 delegates from Australian companies and institutions are meeting with their Indian counterparts to promote Australia-India relations in trade, investment, education and tourism.
