NEW DELHI: Preparing his first visit to Australia, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today invited ideas and thoughts on important issues from Indians, including those living in that country.

He has created a special platform on MyGov website for his Australia tour in which ideas could be shared.

"During my Australia visit in November, I would be attending a variety of programmes, including an interaction with the Indian community there.

"I want to hear ideas and thoughts from all of you, including friends in Australia and the Indian community there on my visit," the Prime Minister tweeted.

He said that ideas could be shared on the webpage especially created for his Australia tour.

"Participate in this MyGov Open Forum and share your ideas on what you feel are important issues for my Australia visit:," the Prime Minister said.

Modi will be starting his tour from Myanmar, where he will attend East Asia Summit (EAS) on November 12-13 in the Myanmar capital Nay Pyi Taw. From there, he will go to Brisbane for a G-20 meet on November 15-16.

From Brisbane, Modi will travel to Canberra to hold a bilateral meeting with Australian counterpart Tony Abbott on November 18. This will be second meeting between the two

leaders after Abbott visited India last month during which the two countries inked the civil nuclear cooperation agreement.

From Australia, he is likely to go to Fiji on November 19.
