Sydney: The relationship between India and Australia is one of shared interests and profoundly important, said Australia's Foreign Minister Penny Wong at the recently concluded Australia-India International Business Summit here.

“Our relationship is built on many things, but fundamentally, it is built on shared interests. And it is why we think of our relationship as one of Dosti - our friendship," she said.

"So together, there is just so much that our two nations can achieve, and your work is central to that. Our partnership extends well beyond the bilateral because we share a region and whichever region that is being reshaped.

"Our relationship is profoundly important. It is profoundly important that countries with shared interests work together” said Senator Wong in her keynote address at a gala dinner of the event.
