Australian high commissioner to India Patrick Suckling called on Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi earlier this week to discuss mutual areas of interest between Gujarat and Australia, and also to invite him to visit Australia.
Last week, British MPs invited Modi to the House of Commons to speak on the future of modern India.
“India has been on the top in Australia’s foreign policy owing to smooth relations and parallels between both the countries. Developing relations with Gujarat has been top priority for the last 10 years,” the Gujarat government release quoting Suckling stated.
Modi praised the Australian government’s interests in Gujarat. In the last three Vibrant Gujarat summits, Australia had sent delegations. He also invited Suckling to attend the Vibrant Gujarat Global Agro Tech Summit and Exhibition in September and the Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors’ Summit in 2015.
