With an expected turn-over of 15,000 people, the Sydney event is being hosted by the Indian Australian Community Foundation (IACF), a coalition of diverse Indian-Australian organisations, to welcome the Indian prime minister.

“The Sydney event is the only community address that Prime Minister Modi will be delivering during his Australian tour.” Ramyavaran Ramaswamy, one of spokespersons of the IACF said.

Within three days of opening registration, over 250 community organisations have registered to be a ‘Reception Partner’ for the event.
Modi would be attending the two-day G20 Summit from Nov 15 to 16 and then visit Sydney on Nov. 17 during which he will address the Indian Diaspora. He will address a joint parliamentary session in Canberra the next day, according to the schedule.

IACF will organise the event with the support of hundreds of groups representing the Indian. Last Indian prime minister to visit to Australia was Rajiv Gandhi in 1986.

Modi’s visit follows Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s Indian tour in September when the two sides sealed the historic deal to sell uranium to India.
