Australia’s Prime Minister Anthony Albanese arrived in India on Wednesday on his first visit since assuming office in May last year.

Albanese arrived in Gujarat’s Ahmedabad on Wednesday evening and headed straight to the Sabarmati Ashram in the city to pay tributes to Mahatma Gandhi.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote, “A true privilege to pay homage to Gandhi’s legacy at Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad.”

The prime minister was given a warm welcome upon his arrival. “An incredible welcome to Ahmedabad, India. The beginning of an important trip for Australia-India relations,” he wrote in a separate tweet.

At a later programme in Gujarat, he announced that Australia’s Deakin University would be setting up its branch at GIFT City in Gandhinagar. He said India and Australia have finalised Australia-India Education Qualification Recognition Mechanism.

Earlier, as the prime minister embarked on his visit to India, he lauded the Indian diaspora in Australia saying that Australia is a better place because of “our large, diverse Indian-Australian community.”
