The India-Australia Relationship
The India Australia Business & Community Awards is the largest platform that exists to celebrate the India-Australia relationship whilst simultaneously contributing to its development.
Across eight years of operation, IABCA has achieved international recognition as a tool for cultural diplomacy, bilateral trade enhancement, and as a platform for stimulating new business investment between the two nations by recognising the success of our people-to-people links.
From strategically channeled tourism initiatives to the celebration of trade and investment operations between India and Australia, IABCA has served its Corporate and Government partners well in strengthening their relations with India as well as the burgeoning Indian communities that reside across Australia.
IABCA is now a flagship event in the Australian business events calendar since 2013.
Held on Friday 14th May, the 2021 IABCA Awards Ceremony attracted 500 professionals, businesses, NFP organisations and bilateral leaders to the International Convention Centre Sydney.
In total, eighteen winners were honoured for their contributions to the India-Australia relationship across the fields of research, business, technology, community leadership, sport, and healthcare.
This important bilateral occasion welcomed strong engagement from a wide range of Indian and Australian government representatives, and featured a packed program of cultural entertainment and activations.
Global Leaders Forum
Garnering more than 500 registrations, the inaugural IABCA Global Leaders Forum leveraged the expertise of IABCA’s expansive alumni group to navigate the strength of the India Australia relationship by exploring the potential of our people-to-people links.
This now annual initiative featured three panel discussions that explored the India Australia relationship across STEM sectors, soft power diplomacy, and food and agribusiness.
