I cannot think of a time when so many BIG STEPS have paid off for Australia – thanks in large part to the great work of Austrade, DFAT and State Government business offices in India.
In the last six months there have been record numbers of ministerial visits both ways – and when government opens the doors, education and business can step through.
Of special note is the work in education of Monica Kennedy, Austrade Mumbai. As she reported – “From Deakin University‘s splendid announcement of setting-up a branch campus in #India, to University of Melbourne‘s partnership with three major Indian Universities – it warrants all the attention it is receiving.
“Team Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) is proud and elated to have played a part in these historic announcements.”
Check out just a couple of all the overwhelming media mentions of the developments.

Keep up the good work!
