Most people would have heard of the 5C's and associate them with precious gems. In this case we are referring to the merging of interests between Australia and India.
On the cricket ground we remain competitive titans, however off the pitch, India and Australia work towards deepening our mutual commitment by collaborating on an array of initiatives.
These initiatives aim to strengthen our ties by boosting trade relations, creating investment opportunities, and advocating growth for Australian businesses.
This is evident in the endorsement of the Australia-India Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement, otherwise known as ECTA, which is now in effect.
