Australia India Education Council

On 8 April 2010, the Education Ministers of the Commonwealth of Australia and the Republic of India signed a Joint Ministerial Statement reaffirming the Australian and Indian Governments' commitment to continue to expand collaboration in education, training and research. To support this expansion, both Governments agreed to the establishment of the Australia India Education Council (AIEC). The AIEC is a bi-national body chaired by Education Ministers which aims to set the strategic direction of the bilateral education, training and research partnership and to develop strategic advice to focus and shape collaborative efforts. In August 2022, Education Ministers agreed to expand the Council to encompass skills cooperation and to rename the body the Australia India Education and Skills Council.
