India Is A Bright Spot In Global Economy: PM Modi At Mega Event In Sydney | UPDATES

Sydney: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday addressed the Indian diaspora at Sydney Olympic Park during a mega event during his Australia visit. He was accompanied by his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese.


  • Noting that bilateral ties between India and Australia were earlier seen to be defined by 3Cs- Commonwealth, Cricket and Curry, then by ‘Democracy, Diaspora and Dosti’ and later ‘Energy, Economy and Education’ emerged as a key component, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that he believes the relationship is “beyond this” and “it is mutual trust and mutual respect”.
  • “Mutual trust and mutual respect have not developed only due to the diplomatic relations of India-Australia. The real reason, the real power is – all of you Indians who live in Australia,” he added.
  • PM Modi arrived at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney along with his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese to a rousing welcome.
    The Prime Minister spoke about the linkages between the two countries with people repeatedly cheering his remarks.
  • “Our lifestyles may be different but now Yoga also connects us. We have been connected due to cricket for a long. But now tennis and films are also connecting us. We might prepare food in different manners but Masterchef is connecting us now,” he said.
  • PM Modi also mentioned Sameer Pandey over his being elected as the Lord Mayor of Parramatta in Australia.
  • In his remarks, Anthony Albanese referred to the warm welcome accorded to PM Modi by the diaspora and people in Australia.
  • “The last time I saw Bruce Springsteen on this stage, he didn’t get the kind of reception that Prime Minister Modi got. PM Modi is the boss,” he said.

    “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Prime Minister Modi to Australia. My first year as Prime Minister is what I am celebrating today. I have met my friend PM six times but there is nothing better than standing on stage with him like this, it is a pleasure to welcome PM Modi here. But I must say that the warmth and energy that is here tonight are second to none,” he added.

  • ‘Welcome Modi’ spelt by a recreational aircraft’s contrails posed a mesmerising sight in the clear blue sky over Sydney ahead of the community event.
  • PM Modi and Australian PM Anthony Albanese will attend a community event to celebrate Australia’s dynamic and diverse Indian diaspora, which, according to the Australian government, is “a core part” of its multicultural community.
  • “As friends and partners, the relationship between our countries has never been closer. I look forward to celebrating Australia’s vibrant Indian community with Prime Minister Modi in Sydney,” the Australian PM said ahead of the event being held in Qudos Bank Arena.
  • PM Modi is visiting Australia after a gap of nine years. He last visited Australia in 2014.
  • Shashi Prabha who had arrived to attend the event, said: “All of us are excited for PM Modi to arrive. That is the most important thing for us at the moment.”
