Australia-India Youth Dialogue 2016 concludes

Bengaluru, Jan 31, 2016, DHNS: 1:09 IST
The fifth Australia-India Youth Dialogue (AIYD) concluded in Bengaluru on Saturday after youth leaders from both countries came together to discuss issues around culture, sustainability and entrepreneurship.

The youth leaders have been meeting over the past three days in Delhi and Mohali. Bengaluru was the final stop for the dialogue.

Shaun Star, co-founder and Chair of AIYD, said young leaders came together in these three cities to discuss regional economic opportunities and global and security challenges facing the two nations. Over the course of four days, leaders from the countries from diverse backgrounds also discussed issues pertaining to culture, sustainability and entrepreneurship.

A total of 30 young politicians, CEOs, journalists, social entrepreneurs, athletes and young achievers also dwelt on issues that are important to the future of both Australia and India. Trade between India and Australia currently stands at $15 billion and with a free trade agreement in the works and both countries’ prime ministers pledging greater co-operation, the young leaders also focused on innovation, entrepreneurship, security, sustainability and social justice.

Star said: “The Australia-India Youth Dialogue 2016 has concluded with a group of 30 new enthusiastic alumni who are now more aware. These young leaders from two dynamic, multi-cultural, democratic nations will add to our melting pot of talent and innovation. We know they will accept this beacon of the AIYD alumni and help the dialogue culminate into favourable outcomes.”

AIYD has previously given out grants to their alumni Amoghavarsha and Pinki Chandran, both of whom have used their grants to help others in their respective communities.
