New Delhi: Prime minister Narendra Modi will on Friday embark on a six-day visit to Japan, Papua New Guinea, and Australia to attend three key multilateral summits including the Group of Seven (G7) and the Quad, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said in a statement.

At the invitation of Japan’s prime minister Fumio Kishida, PM Modi will visit Hiroshima from 19-21 May to attend the G7 Summit under Japan’s presidency. The G7 sessions will provide a platform for discussions on various crucial subjects, including peace, stability, and prosperity of a sustainable planet, food, fertilizer, and energy security, health, gender equality, climate change and environment, resilient infrastructure, and development cooperation.

According to the ministry, prime minister Modi is scheduled to address the G7 sessions with partner countries, sharing India’s perspectives on these important issues. On the sidelines of the summit, he will also hold bilateral meetings with prime minister Fumio and other participating leaders.

Following the G7 Summit, PM Modi will travel to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, where he will jointly host the 3rd Summit of the Forum for India–Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC III Summit) with prime minister James Marape of Papua New Guinea on 22 May.

Launched in 2014, FIPIC involves India and 14 Pacific Island countries - Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Tonga, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Samoa, Vanuatu, Niue, Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Marshall Islands, Cook Islands, Palau, Nauru and Solomon Islands.

It will be the first visit by an Indian prime minister to Papua New Guinea.

During his time in Papua New Guinea, Modi will engage in bilateral meetings with governor-general Sir Bob Dadae and prime minister James Marape, further strengthening ties between the two nations.

In the third and final leg of the trip, Modi will visit Sydney from 22-24 May to attend the Quad summit. The Quad summit will bring together leaders from India, the United States, Japan, and Australia to discuss regional developments in the Indo-Pacific and advance their shared vision for a free, open, and inclusive Indo-Pacific region.

The Quad summit, being hosted by Australian prime minister Anthony Albanese, will also be joined by US president Joe Biden and Japanese prime minister Fumio.

During his visit to Australia, PM Modi will have a bilateral meeting with Albanese on 24 May. The prime minister will also interact with Australian CEOs and business leaders, and address the Indian diaspora at a community event in Sydney on 23 May, the MEA said.
