India, Australia see opportunity in mining, infra
India and Australia have immense opportunities in the mining and infrastructure sectors, the Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma said. Holding meeting with Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs Stephen Smith in New Delhi, Sharma said the bilateral trade between the countries is increasing satisfactorily but companies from both Australia and India have lots of opportunities in the mining and infrastructure sectors to invest and get into joint ventures.
Australian companies are already involved in large number of infrastructure projects for the Commonwealth Games. In addition to that, a number of Australian architect firms are designing many hospitality projects across India.
Both the ministers discussed the issue of early completion of Commonwealth projects before the Games starts. The ministers also reviewed various aspects of strategic partnerships between the two countries which were recently decided during Australian PM’s visit to India in November, 2009.
