The Australian Prime Minister will focus on to strengthen the strategic partnership and to explore the business opportunities with India.
Mr. Abbott’s statement says, “My visit will be an opportunity to engage with Prime Minister Narendra Modi early in the term of his government to increase bilateral cooperation to advance our mutual interests. I will also meet other senior political leaders, including the president”.
The Australian business tycoons will also accompany Mr. Abbott in his tour to the two key Asian nations.
Mr. Abbott added in his statement, “The visit will be an opportunity to promote trade and investment and promote our G20 objectives ahead of the Brisbane summit in November.”
The Australian Prime Minister along with his convoy will also visit Malaysia for talks with Malaysian PM Najib Razak.
“Australia’s defence ties with Malaysia are amongst the closest in South East Asia and we feel a deep connection to Malaysia given shared experiences arising from the MH370 and MH17 disasters,” said Abbott.
