“It was my great honour and privilege to present credentials to Her Excellency, the President of India earlier this week and to become Australia's 22nd High Commissioner to India,” he added.

Australia’s High Commissioner also said that there are nearly a million people of Indian origin who now live in Australia and are a “vital” and growing link between the two countries.
