The Ministry of Education in New Delhi was informed on Thursday that ongoing cooperation between Australia and India in the fields of education and skill development were discussed by Union Minister for Education Dharmendra Pradhan and his Australian counterpart Brendan O’Connor.

When Pradhan and the Australian Minister for Skill and Training met in New Delhi, they urged increased and deeper relations between their two nations.

According to a press release from the ministry, Pradhan praised Australia for the way it managed its natural resources, such as minerals, and developed its human capital. He suggested that the two nations look into how to implement similar procedures in India and prepare young people for new job roles.

He mentioned a number of fields that may be thoroughly investigated, including agricultural technology, mining, water management, renewable energy, and emerging technologies like AI and robotics.

The minister emphasised that the relationship between India and Australia, which is already at an all-time high, is at its finest right now. He urged the execution of the agreement on Mutual Recognition of Qualifications that the two countries had signed earlier this year in order to encourage two-way student and professional mobility between the two nations.

Minister O’ Conner has also been invited by Pradhan to attend the 7th Australia-India Education and Skills Council meeting in Gandhinagar in September of this year. The opportunity presented by this meeting will allow for further momentum to be added to bilateral cooperation on skill development and education.

Additionally, Minister O’Connor discussed strengthening ties between the two nations. He claimed that his nation is attempting to improve the efficiency of the visa application process and that restoring student mobility is a top priority.

In recent years, relations between India and Australia have been stronger under PM Narendra Modi’s direction. According to the official press release, recent events include the mutual recognition of educational and skill qualifications, the arrival of Deakin University in India, and continued expansion of the partnership in skill development.
