Trade Pact To Help Expand Economies Of India, Australia: Piyush Goyal

Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal said on Thursday that the trade pact between India and Australia would help in expanding the economies of both countries, thus providing huge opportunities for students.

He is currently on an official tour of Australia, which has come just days after both the countries had signed a free trade agreement.

Piyush said education is an important element both in the current and future engagements with Australia.

“So as trade and economy expand, the opportunities for students also naturally expand and that’s what we have aimed for,” Mr Goyal said while having an interaction with students at the University of New South Wales.

“As we expand our services offerings to each other. As we expand trade in goods, in startups, obviously there is going to be a need for all of you (Indian students in Australia) in a bigger way,” Goyal added.
