NEW DELHI: Two weeks before Prime Minister Narendra Modi goes on his first multi-nation trip, he solicited “ideas and thoughts” from Australians and the Indian community in Australia on his digital platform.
“During my Australia visit in November, I would be attending a variety of programmes, including an interaction with the Indian community there,” he tweeted on Sunday afternoon. “I want to hear ideas and thoughts from all of you, including friends in Australia and the Indian community there on my visit,” he said.
The Prime Minister’s twitter account then shared that a special platform had been created for this purpose. “Participate in this MyGov Open Forum and share your ideas on what you feel are important issues for my Australia visit(on) http://mygov.in/groupissue/prime-minister-in-australia/show,” he said.
The PM will be travelling first to Myanmar on November 12-13 to attend the East Asia Summit from where he will go to Brisbane for the G-20 summit on November 15-16 and then to Fiji on November 19.
Modi will go to Canberra and Sydney for the bilateral component of the visit on November 17-18 which will be the first bilateral trip to Australia by an Indian PM.
