Message from PM Abbott to the Indian community in Australia:


I spoke to PM-elect Modi on the night of his election and congratulated him on his electoral success.


I am looking forward to working with him.


I invited Prime Minister Modi to the G20 Summit later this year and to visit Australia.


The Indian community has become an integral part of our Australian story.


I acknowledge the strong friendship between Australia and India, particularly the people-to-people links we share.


Since the early 1980s, when I spent three months living in India, Australia and India have grown significantly closer together.


There are around 400,000 Australians of Indian origin and I pay tribute to the significant contributions they make to our country.


Modern Australia is unimaginable without them.



The Prime Minister also tweeted his congratulations to PM-elect Modi, who in turn responded.
