As Australia’s relationship with China continues to sour, it should come as no surprise that Canberra is bolstering security ties with New Delhi. Additionally, the two governments are working hard to forge a comprehensive trade agreement.

But is a mutual suspicion of Beijing a sound basis for closer ties? What are the real issues that bind, and separate, India and Australia?

Australia-India Institute CEO Lisa Singh and political scientist Dr Pradeep Taneja scrutinise the evolving Australia-India relationship with presenter Ali Moore.
