Join this expert discussion on the emerging opportunities in one of the fastest growing major economies in the world and explore how your organisation can build stronger partnerships with India.

India is undergoing a rapid and unprecedented economic transformation. Over the next twenty years, there’s no single major market globally with more growth opportunities for Australian business than India. A growing India will need many of Australia's goods and services - yet while Australia has long seen India as a key partner country, the Australian business community finds it challenging to enter and engage with the market.

In an effort to further deepen and reinforce partnerships with India, the Australian Government recently launched Navigating from Potential to Delivery: An India Economic Strategy to 2035. This comprehensive and timely report unveils up-to-date market insights and practical business guidance in ten key sectors, including education, tourism, agribusiness and science and innovation.

The goals set out in this report are ambitious. By 2035, Australia aims to uplift India into its third largest export market and outbound investment destination in Asia. Via multiple strategic partnerships, Australia looks to build stronger and greater connection with India.
