India has joined the Australia Group (AG) on 19 January 2018 following the completion of internal procedures for joining the Group.
The Australia Group decided to admit India as the Group’s 43rd Participant through a consensus decision.
India would like to thank each of the AG Participants for their support for India’s membership. We would also like to thank Ambassador Jane Hardy of Australia, former Chair of the Australia Group, for her role in facilitating India’s accession to the Group.
India’s entry into the Group would be mutually beneficial and further contribute to international security and non-proliferation objectives.
