The objective of the Council's public awareness program is to increase awareness and understanding between the peoples and institutions of Australia and India.The program has served generally to broaden the reach of the Council's activities.

The key element of the program during 1997-98 continued to be the newsletter Australia-India Focus, jointly funded by the AIC, the Australia-India Business Council (AIBC) and Austrade, published by the AIBC and distributed in both Australia and India.In the light of the positive public response to Australia-India Focus, the Council agreed to contribute to the costs of a second year of publication of the free newsletter.
