This week, Prime Minister Scott Morrison will meet the Honourable Shri Mr Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of the Republic of India, for the first Australia-India Leaders’ Virtual Summit. The purpose of the Summit is to discuss the countries’ responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as new opportunities in sectors which are important to both nations, including education.
In support of this historic event, Austrade’s India Post is launching a digital campaign to show our support for Indian students in Australia, particularly those who are working in frontline roles during the COVID-19 pandemic. This campaign – using the hashtag #InAusTogether alongside #InThisTogether – is a unique opportunity to highlight the contribution of Indian students who are delivering food and hospitality, healthcare support and other essential services.
The campaign has enlisted a series of prominent Australians with Indian connections to record messages of support in collaboration with the #InThisTogether initiative. These messages will be shared via various web and social media platforms – including Study Australia channels – over the coming days.
Watch a video message from Barry O’Farrell, Australian High Commissioner to India, as well as messages from former Australian international cricketer Adam Gilchrist and refugee advocate and former Socceroos captain Craig Foster.
We encourage the international education sector to support the #InAusTogether campaign and in the spirit of being #InThisTogether, continue to share these inspiring messages to Indian students via your respective digital and social media platforms.
