Inquiry into Australia's relationship with India as an emerging world power

On Thursday 2 March 2006, in the 41st Parliament, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Alexander Downer MP, asked the Committee to inquire into and report on Australia's relationship with India as an emerging world power. Due to the federal election in November 2007, this inquiry lapsed but was re-commenced on 27 August 2008.

The Committee invited interested persons and organisations to make submissions addressing the terms of reference by Wednesday 31 May 2006. Please refer to our brochure called preparing a submission for more information.

In order to facilitate electronic publishing of submissions, the Committee would prefer them to be emailed to or sent on disk or CD-ROM to the Committee Secretariat in Microsoft Word® or Portable Document Format (PDF).
