"The experiments carried out by New South Wales in the areas of water management and equitable water distribution will prove beneficial to Maharashtra," Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan said, in presence of NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell.
O'Farrell is here as part of his third official visit to India to promote trade and investment opportunities for the Australian state.
As part of the MoU, a post graduate course in solar energy would be started in the engineering college at Karad, the Chief Minister's native place in Western Maharashtra.
It is also proposed to have a study tour to Sydney of public representatives and 'zilla parishad' functionaries in the state to understand the parliamentary practices there, an official said.
The focus of the NSW Premier's visit is on infrastructure, education, financial services and tourism sectors. During his meeting with Chavan, the NSW premier discussed the next stages of the NSW-Maharashtra sister-state memorandum of understanding.
"Our MoU with Maharashtra - India's leading industrial state and home of Bollywood - is an important step forward in the relationship between our two economies," O'Farrell said.
