Australia welcomed a ministerial level delegation from India as a major step in the Australia–India Critical Minerals Investment Partnership.

The Australian Government allocated $5.8 million to the partnership in March 2022. The partnership aims to support Indian investment in Australian critical minerals projects and grow the sector.  
The Critical Minerals Facilitation Office arranged the visit to give delegates the opportunity to build relationships and engage with Australia’s critical minerals operating environment.

The delegation includes India’s Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Coal and Mines, the Honourable Shri Pralhad Joshi, and 4 other senior Indian Government representatives.

The delegates are meeting with 6 representatives from our department, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and AusTrade. They are engaging with state government agencies and critical mineral companies in Perth, Bunbury and Sydney. This includes site tours of:

  • Tianqi Lithium Kwinana processing facility
  • Greenbushes Lithium Mine
  • CSIRO Australian Resources Research Centre
  • Western Australian Geological Survey Core Library.

The visit is a significant achievement for the Critical Minerals Facilitation Office in advancing the partnership and broader Australia–India relationship.
