Modi received a traditional welcome in Sydney
On Tuesday in Sydney, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, and his counterpart from Australia, Anthony Albanese, spoke at a special community event. At the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Modi received a traditional welcome.
At the community celebration honoring the nation’s vibrant, diverse Indian diaspora, Prime Minister Modi spoke to the crowd to raucous applause from the attendees.
India would establish a consulate in Brisbane
To satisfy the long-standing request of the diaspora, Modi announced that India would establish a consulate in Brisbane.
Primary highlights of PM Modi in Sydney:
1. “The last performer I saw on this stage was American singer Bruce Springsteen, and he did not receive the same reception as Prime Minister Modi.” “Prime Minister Modi is in charge,” Albanese said at the community event. Another moniker for Bruce Springsteen is “The Boss.”
2. Speaking at the gathering, Modi said, “When I came here in 2014, I promise you that you would not have to wait 28 years for an Indian Prime Minister. I’m back in Sydney now.”
3. “Our lifestyles may differ, but yoga now binds us together. Cricket has long been the basis of our relationship. However, these days we are also connecting over tennis and films. Although we may prepare food differently, Masterchef has brought us together.”
4. Modi claimed to have learned that the Chatkazz “Chaat” and “Jalebi” from Jaipur Sweets in Harris Park are to die for. “I want you all to go there with my friend Australian Prime Minister Albanese,” Modi said.
5. “Mutual respect and trust have grown not just because of India and Australia’s diplomatic ties. All of you Indians living in Australia are the true cause and source of power,” Modi said.
6. According to Modi’s statement from today, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) sees India as a global economic strength. India, in the opinion of the World Bank, is the country best positioned to combat global headwinds. Today, there are issues with the banking systems of many nations, but on the other hand, India’s banks are respected all over the world for their strength, the PM said.
7. The Indian Australian Diaspora Foundation (IADF), which organized the event, had more than 20,000 people in mind for attendance. Performances from various cultures opened the program.
8. From Canberra and Brisbane, Modi’s supporters have organized special buses. Modi announced that he will meet the Indian community in Sydney at a special event before departing for Japan to attend the G7 Summit in Hiroshima.
9. A bilateral meeting between Modi and Albanese will take place on Wednesday.
10. In Australia, 619,164 people reported having ethnic Indian ancestry in the 2016 census conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. That makes up 2.8% of Australia’s total population. Among them, 592,000 were Indian-born. The last time Prime Minister Modi went there was in 2014.
