In an interaction with the Australian Prime Minister Ms Julia Gillard on October 16th, 2012 organized by the Australian High Commission in New Delhi, 40 young Indian leaders, selected from various walks of life across the country, discussed various topics ranging from attacks on Indian students in Australia, Australia's diplomatic priorities, and recognition of the country's indigenous population. The interaction was moderated by well known television personality, Karan Thapar and the anchor of the popular talk show 'The Devil's Advocate'. Amongst these 40 youth, nine of them were invited from CII's Young Indians (Yi), from across its 25 chapters in the country.
Ms Gillard said that both Australia and India had a large population of youth and that the future engagement between these two countries was going to be defined by the young people of both the nations. She also said that the youth in both the countries can contribute greatly to the emerging world order as the economic interests of India and Australia will continue to converge in the future.
She also dismissed suggestions that the US is a declining power in Asia declaring that it would continue to be a super power as far as the eye can see, but part of a region where there will be many sizeable players. And, she played down concerns about rivalry between India and China saying that growth wasn't a zero sum game so both countries could grow without impacting on each other.
It was the question on women's rights that livened up the discussion, with Ms Gillard saying it was very topical because Australia had some complexities in this area just like India. "We are at the mid-point of change for women in politics," she said, pointing out people such as herself and a large number of female ministers in her government including Ms Penny Wong, the Finance Minister, and not to forget former House of Representatives speaker Joan Child and Government Minister Susan Ryan had blazed a trail, but there was a lot more to do now. Prime Minister Ms Gillard and the Australian High Commissioner Peter Varghese then made the young Indian leaders comfortable by engaging in a casual conversation and a photography session over high tea.
Ms Gillard also went on to launch Australia's biggest cultural promotion in India - the OzFest - which will run until February in 18 cities.
