New Delhi: Minister for Investment and Trade, Martin Hamilton, launched a wholly updated Engagement strategy report; mentioning that the revisions will enhance the bilateral commercial ties between India and especially its diaspora in South Australia.

This refinement of the original strategy will prepare South Australian businesses to embrace new opportunities that stem from our evolving relationship with India,” Hamilton-Smith said.

Therefore, one of the aspects specified in the report is that there will be a further involvement taking place among the Indian diaspora in the state and that of the activation of the South Australia club in India.

“Major reforms have also occurred in India after the 2014 election of the Modi Government. We have identified a Government-to-Government approach as being effective in providing opportunities for commercial and cultural engagement,” he said.

Thus, in an attempt to strengthen their International connections, emphasis on the commercial and cultural nexus will be done by focusing on two major initiatives as provisioned by Modi and his government – ‘Skilling India’ and ‘Make in India’.

“We have listened to exporters and updated the strategy priorities to help build on existing partnerships and seize new opportunities for collaboration,” he said.

Pointing out four essential fields of aerospace and defense, energy and natural resources, educational and clean technology, the report suggests that the Government should be involved intimately in services-based exports to India.

Speaking of services and technology, the report also adds about the significance of agribusiness, tourism, culture, and health.

To examine the largely revised report of strategy, one cannot miss out talking about the decision taken to get engaged in business and a new business education program with that of the neighboring state of Rajasthan.

The policy of India Engagement strategy first came to fruition back in 2012. (Inputs from Agencies)

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” over the rape incidents in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua and Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao was “unacceptable”. He prodded him to speak.

He also accused the Bharatiya Janata Party governments in these states of “protecting rapists”. “Mr Prime Minister, your silence is unacceptable. What do you think about the growing violence against women and children? Why are accused rapists and murderers protected by the state? India is waiting. Speak up,” Gandhi said in a tweet.

In another tweet earlier, Gandhi thanked people who had taken part in the midnight protest in Delhi against the “slumber” that the Modi government was in and sought justice for the victims.

“Thousands of men and women stood up to be counted in the battle for justice and to protest the rising acts of violence against girls and women.

“I thank each and everyone of you for your support. It shall not be in vain,” Gandhi said while attaching pictures of people who participated in the protest. Gandhi, who had led the protest Thursday night, was joined by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her husband Robert Vadra, hundreds of party workers and senior party leaders.

During the protest, Gandhi slammed the Prime Minister over the repeated incidents of violence, rape and murder of women in the country. “We want the government to take action. Today, women are feeling insecure to move out of their houses. Somewhere a child, a woman is raped, killed and we want that the government should resolve this. The women of the country should feel safe,” he had said. IANS
