Atlassian’s main partner in Austria-India trade

Australian-based technology giant Atlassian will replace packaging company Visy Industries as the main corporate sponsor of the Australia India Leadership Dialogue.

The partnership will run for two years and will take place 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 important bilateral dialogue between Australia and India.

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

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

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

The talks will focus on emerging technology and will cover digihealth and medtech, clean technology, sustainability, safety and how to attract tech talent globally.

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

“The technology story between Australia and India is not yet fully told,” she said.

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

The talks will focus on emerging technology and will cover digihealth and medtech, clean technology, sustainability, safety and how to attract tech talent globally.

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

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

The partnership will run for two years and will take place in India in 2022 and in Australia in 2023.

The institute also partners with the Confederation of Indian Industry and Tata Consulting Services.
