Australia Agreement With India
While India was Australia`s first major trading partner to import through the East India Company, Australia`s exports to India date back to the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, when coal from Sydney and horses from New South Wales were exported to India. As of 2016 [Update], bilateral trade between the two countries amounted to AUD 21.9 billion, after increasing from AUD 4.3 billion in 2003. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said australia`s and India`s $20 billion trade in both directions was ”a fraction of what we should be aiming for given the many intersections between our economies.”  Trade is strongly distorted to Australia. Australia mainly exports coal, services (mainly education), vegetables for consumption, gold, copper ore and concentrates, while India`s main export products are refined petroleum, services (professional services such as outsourcing), medicines, pearls, precious stones and jewellery.  More than 97,000 Indian students wrote to themselves in Australia in 2008, representing an education export of AUD 2 billion.   Australia`s 2016 census shows that it receives more migrants from Asia than from Europe. From 1970 to 1996, Australia conducted only two trial visits to India. With the financial rise of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Australia, which has the highest game score in the world, has however sought more regular games. For the past ten years, test series have been held every two years, and one-day series are even more frequent. Scholarships are also awarded to talented young Indian cricketers to train at the Australian Cricket Academy. Australia`s trade conflicts with China are also multiplying, and its move last month to include an international review of the origins and spread of the novel coronavirus has met with opposition from China. The Heads of State and Government also said they would continue to work together to address the pandemic that has disrupted global economies.
In the early colonies, Indians were brought to Australia as laborers and domestic servants, limiting migration to the Federation.  Gradual migration in later years of White Australia policy led workers to settle in Australia, especially in times of labour shortages, such as the Sikhs of Woolgoolga.
