Ahead of his visit to Japan, Papua New Guinea and Australia, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that he is looking forward to exchanging views with the G-7 nations and other invited partners on challenges that the world faces and the need to collectively address them.

In his departure statement, PM Modi informed that he will hold bilateral meetings with some of the leaders attending the Hiroshima G-7 summit.

He added, "My presence in this G-7 summit is particularly meaningful as India holds the G20 Presidency this year."

From Japan, PM Modi will visit Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea which will mark his trip to the nation and also the first-ever visit by any Indian Prime Minister to Papua New Guinea. 

"I will host on 22 May 2023 the 3rd Summit of the Forum for India–Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC III Summit) jointly with H.E. Mr James Marape, Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea," PM Modi added.

Modi also mentioned that he is looking forward to engaging with the pacific island countries (PIC) leaders on issues that bring us together, such as climate change, sustainable and economic development, capacity building and training and health and well-being.

Lastly, Modi will travel to Sydney, Australia at the invitation of Prime Minister Albanese. PM Modi will also hold a bilateral meeting, which he believes will be an opportunity to take stock of Indo-Australian ties and follow up on our first India-Australia Annual summit held in New Delhi in March this year.
