The primary role of Australia-India Wing is to conduct evidence-based research and initiatives on pertinent issues/matters related to India and Australia. The underlying objectives are to help foster trade and bilateral relationship between India and Australia, highlighting the potential of Indian community in Australia and positively impacting the broader Australian community.

At the end of 2021, there were over 780,000 people of Indian origin who call Australia home (Census, 2020) more than twice the number at 30 June 2010. The Indian-born population is the second largest migrant community in Australia, equivalent to 9.4 per cent of Australia's overseas-born population and 2.8 per cent of Australia's total population (The Department of Home Affairs, 2022).

The Australian Government's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (2022) notes, "India is one of Australia’s most important Indo-Pacific partners, with the relationship characterised by strong people-to-people links and close cooperation at all levels of government".  The Australia-India relationship reached a high point, underpinned by the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership announced by both the Governments in June 2020. The signing of the Australia-India Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement in April 2022 is meant to encouraged significant investments to bolster economic ties between the two democracies. These developments look promising.

Over the past many years, in our own ways, through our works, we have been working to build and bolster economic connections and people-to-people relations with stakeholders from Australia and India. Below are the list of some of the key projects/initiatives that we have conducted thus far.​
