India’s high commissioner to Australia, Ajay Gondane, says the recent approval of the Adani coal mine has strengthened the trading relationship between Australia and India. Gondane says India’s demand for coal will continue to rise, despite attempts to reduce its reliance on coal for its power generation needs. Gondane notes India does have a lot of coal, but it is not clean, and so India would prefer to use Australia’s ‘good’ coal. Gondane, who will finish his time in Australia in October, says India and Australia shared "common thinking".
