Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently thanked his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese for the hospitality during his Sydney visit, one which will "boost the friendship between Australia and India," and noted that the two leaders will keep working towards a "vibrant India-Australia friendship," which is also in the “interest of global good."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi engaged in bilateral discussions with the Prime Minister of Australia and participated in a significant community program during his three-day visit. He also had meetings with prominent Australian business figures and individuals of eminence.

A large gathering of Indian diaspora attended PM Modi's address at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney Olympic Park, which was the chosen venue for the community event. Numerous overseas Indians traveled to Australia specifically for this occasion, with some even flying on a specially arranged "Modi Airways."

At the community event, Australian PM Albanese compared PM Modi's mass appeal with that of the famed rockstar Bruce Springsteen who incidentally is famed among his fans as “The Boss."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with the Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea, James Marape, co-chaired the 3rd India-Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC) Summit during his visit to Papua New Guinea.

Moreover, from a strategic standpoint, it establishes the groundwork for a potentially crucial bilateral partnership for India in the Indo-Pacific region, according to the Global Order.
