New Delhi, November 17

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Wednesday announced work on 63 critical technologies to match China’s advances in technologies aimed at achieving global economic dominance.

He was addressing the Sydney Dialogue, organised by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, which will also be addressed by PM Narendra Modi. Cooperation in critical technologies is also the endeavour of AUKUS and the Quad groupings.

Addressing an online meet on the same subject in Bengaluru, the Australian PM announced plans to open a consulate in the city to intensify ties with India in the area of high technology.

Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne noted that Bengaluru was the world’s fourth largest technology cluster and home to a third of India’s unicorn companies.

The technologies mentioned by Morrison included artificial intelligence, 6G, synthetic biology and quantum technology. Australia is using this route to deepen its technology partnerships through Quad. “Together with India, Japan and the US, Australia is working to harness respective nations’ capabilities to enhance the resilience of Indo-Pacific supply chains,” he said. — TNS
