Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Australia on Monday on a 2-day visit. Here he will meet the Prime Minister of Australia, Anthony Albanese. Apart from this, on Tuesday, Modi will also address more than 20,000 people of Indian origin at Sydney's Olympic Park.

When the Prime Minister arrived at Sydney Airport, Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi posted some photos on social media. Wrote the caption- Welcome to Vibrant City Sydney.
People of Indian origin were waiting for the Prime Minister in Sydney. Talking to a news agency, an Indian said – Modi has given a new identity to India. We have got a golden chance to meet him in life.
According to the initial schedule PM Modi, he was to go to Australia for the QUAD meeting. However, due to the ongoing debt problem in America, the meeting was held in Japan during the G7 summit. Despite this, the PM did not cancel the tour of Australia.
Apart from this, the name of Harris Park area will be changed to 'Little India' during his presence in Australia. In 2014, Modi became the second prime minister after Rajiv Gandhi to visit Australia.
During the QUAD meeting, Albanese had said that the community reception in Sydney where PM Modi's program will be held has a capacity of only 20,000 people. In such a situation, Albanese told Modi that the challenge before him was to manage the crowd.
Albanese also recalled his visit to India. When 90 thousand people welcomed him and Modi at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. On this, Biden said – I should take your autograph.
