Prime Minister Narendra Modi has left Japan for Papua New Guinea as part of his three-nation tour. During his visit to Japan, he attended three sessions at the G7 summit and met with world leaders to discuss global issues. The group of seven countries includes the US, France, the UK, Italy, Germany, Canada and Japan. Under its G7 presidency, Japan invited India and seven other countries to the summit as guests.
Modi also attended the 3rd in-person Quad Summit with US President Joe Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese. He offered to host the next Quad Leaders’ Summit in India in 2024.
In Papua New Guinea, Modi will host the third summit of the Forum for India–Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC) on Monday jointly with Prime Minister James Marape. FIPIC was launched during Modi’s visit to Fiji in 2014. All 14 Pacific Island Countries have accepted the invitation to attend this important summit.
In the final leg of his trip, Modi will visit Australia from May 22 to 24. He will meet with his Australian counterpart Albanese, interact with Australian CEOs and business leaders, and meet the Indian community in Sydney at a special event.
