Australian tech giant Atlassian will replace packaging company Visy Industries as the main sponsor of the Australia India Leadership Dialogue.

The partnership will last two years and will be held in India in 2022 and in Australia in 2023.

Billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes, co-CEO and co-founder of Atlassian, said on Tuesday it was the most significant bilateral dialogue between Australia and India.

The “Track 1.5 Dialogue” will be held on September 6 in New Delhi, bringing together 50 ministers, business leaders and academics.

The dialogue will be co-chaired by Mr. Cannon-Brookes and Lisa Singh, CEO of the Australia India Institute.

“It should be a first for an Australian tech company to proactively demonstrate its support for closer ties with India,” Ms Singh said.

Discussions will focus on emerging technologies and will cover digital health and medical technologies, clean technologies, sustainability, security and how to attract global tech talent.

Ms Singh said the partnership would be a game-changer for both countries.

“The Australia-India tech story has yet to be fully told,” she said.

“Yet the innovation and growth for both countries is immense.”

Discussions will focus on emerging technologies and will cover digital health and medical technologies, clean technologies, sustainability, security and how to attract global tech talent.

“India is not only Atlassian’s fastest growing R&D location, but also our fastest growing talent recruitment location since we opened our office in 2018,” Mr. Cannon-Brookes said.

“This is an important partnership for us as we continue to invest and grow our ambition in such a key technology market.”

The partnership will last two years and will be held in India in 2022 and in Australia in 2023.

The institute is also in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry and Tata Consulting Services.
