“Indian Community Is Making Incredible Contribution In Australia”

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison lauded the significant contribution made by the growing Indian community in Australia during the Australia India bilateral remarks in the ASEAN Conference held in Indonesia on November 14, 2018 when he met with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Welcoming the new Australian Prime Minister, the Indian Prime Minister said: “Let me heartily congratulate you as Prime Minster on your new responsibilities. I am confident that under your leadership, Australia will not only progress but also strengthen the bilateral relationship between our two countries. Let me express my gratitude from the bottom of my heart to Australia and to the Australian Navy. As you know recently an Indian Naval Commander, who was taking part in an international competition to solo circumnavigate the globe met with an accident and the first response was from the Australian Navy. The quick response that he got from the Australian Navy saved his life. I would like again to express my gratitude.”

Responding to PM Modi, Scott Morrison said: “ I met the first responding crew to that incident not that long ago and they were very professional and were very happy to have provided that assistance. So thank you very much and I will pass that on to them.

I am also looking forward to welcoming the President next week when he will be in Sydney. He will be hosted by the Governor General but more importantly he will be warmly welcomed by a very enthusiastic and strong crowd of Australians of Indian descent. Even when you (Narendra Modi) came to Australia, you had the warmest of all possible receptions and everyone is still talking about it.

I was at the Deepavali festival last week and there were thousands of people celebrating the festival. It was a wonderful celebration of faith and family and that is what Australia is very much about. The Indian community in Australia is very vibrant; it is very strong, as you know, it is making an incredible contribution. The Indian nationals who have migrated to Australia are very successful and we very much welcome them to becoming a much greater part of the Australia family.”
