PM Albanese during his address also spoke about his unforgettable trip to India and added that everywhere he went he felt a deep connection between the people of both countries. To understand India well, PM Albanese advised travellers to explore the country by train and bus.

“When I was in India in March, it was a trip full of unforgettable moments, celebrating Holi in Gujarat, laying a wreath for Mahatma Gandhi in Delhi... Everywhere I went, I felt a deep connection between the people of Australia and India. If you want to understand India, travel by train and bus," he said.

PM Modi had arrived in Sydney on Monday as part of the third and final leg of his three-nation visit after concluding his visit to Papua New Guinea. PM Modi was received by Australian High Commissioner to India Barry O'Farrell and other officials upon his arrival in Sydney.

Earlier today, Harris Park in Australia was officially renamed as "Little India" by PM Modi along with his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese during a special community event. Harris Park is a hub in Western Sydney where the Indian community celebrates festivals and events such as Diwali and Australia Day.

"I had the opportunity to welcome the Prime Minister @AlboMP ji on the Indian soil in Ahmedabad. Today he joined me in unveiling the foundation stone of 'Little India' here: PM @narendramodi," Prime Minister Modi tweeted.

The announcement to declare Harris Park as 'Little India' was made by Australian Prime Minister Albanese as he welcomed Modi at the community event. As per local media reports, in the last 10 to 15 years it has become the go-to spot for Indian migrants. A 2021 census revealed that 45 per cent of the 5,043 Harris Park residents have Indian roots, the report said.

Earlier today, PM Modi also met different Sydney-based CEOs and highlighted "transformative reforms and initiatives" taken by his government and India's credentials as one of the most preferred major economies for foreign investments in the world. He also met certain prominent figures of the country including artists and those working in science, artificial intelligence, art and music.
