Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott sought Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s support for Australia’s infrastructure initiatives ahead of his Nov 14-19 visit to Australia for the G20 Summit, an official statement said.

In a telephonic call to Modi, Abbott discussed the agenda for the summit to be held in Brisbane and also invited him to share his vision for accelerating global economic growth and employment generation.

“Prime Minister Abbott invited Prime Minister Modi to share, in particular, his vision for accelerating global economic growth and employment generation, based on his personal experiences of reforms and growth at the state level and his plans for India,” a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office here said.

“Prime Minister Abbott also sought PM’s support for Australia’s infrastructure initiatives in the G20,” it added.

Abbott also conveyed that he and the Australian people were keenly awaiting Modi’s four-city visit to Australia, the statement said.
