The objective of the Council’s international relations program is to encourage greater attention to, and understanding of, international security issues of mutual concern to Australia and India and of the international relations stance of each country.

The Council provided funding toward the costs of airfares to enable Dr KP Kalirajan, of the Australia-South Asia Research Centre at the Australian National University, and Professor Robin Ghosh, of the Department of Economics at the University of Western Australia, to participate in the Australia-India workshop on economic linkages, the Indian Ocean and APEC, held at the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi during November 1997.

The New Delhi workshop examined economic aspects of the bilateral relationship and exposed Indian opinion leaders to Australian expertise on APEC, following on from a similar event held in Perth in July 1997. The workshop was well attended and was strongly supported by the Australian High Commission in New Delhi.
