South Australia begins '10-year' India trade strategy

Sydney, Mar 25 (ANI): South Australia has kicked off a ten-year strategy to become a significant trade and investment partner with India.

The South Australia-India Council conducted its first meeting to drive the plan.

According to the Australian, Trade Minister Tom Kenyon said the strategy identified key sectors of the economy that could take advantage of India's rapid development and create local jobs.

He said that the team would focus efforts on the industry sectors identified in the India strategy, aerospace and defence, energy and natural resources, education and training and clean technology.

According to the paper, Kenyon also stressed that engaging more with India was part of South Australia's desire to be more outward-looking and open to economic opportunities afforded by export markets. (ANI)
