Andrew Barr MLA, Chief Minister of Australian Capital Territory
Canberra's already strong business relationships with India continue to grow and I was delighted to hear news of Mr Deepak-Raj Gupta's success at the India Australia Business & Community Awards in 2015. I am pleased to send my congratulations to this year's nominees and winners.
In September 2015 ACT Minister for Education and Training Joy Burch travelled to India to sign an agreement between the Canberra Institute of Technology and NeST Information Technologies to jointly develop and deliver spatial information and surveying programs. Minister Burch also met with the Gujarat Education Minister, Shri Bhupendrasinh Manubha Chudasm, to sign an MoU with the Gujarat Forensic Sciences University.
For me these agreements represent the significant potential of Canberra's growing commercial and cultural linkages with India.
