Minister for Trade Simon Crean has announced the opening of five new Austrade offices in India and the expansion of three existing operations, bringing the network there to 11 offices. He noted that this was testament to the importance the Australian government placed on building relationships with India. "For the past two years this Government has been building and strengthening links with India," he said. "Expanding economic links are a vital component in giving effect to the shared commitment to building the relationship." In the 2008/09 financial year, India was Australia's fastest growing trade partner, with current two-way trade valued at $21.7 billion. Austrade's expansion will mean Australia will have the largest trade promotion network in India of any foreign country: more than Canada, which has eight offices, and the USA with five offices.
