Her Excellency Ms. Harinder Sidhu
High Commissioner of Australia in India
Today, Indian–Australians are one of the fastest growing communities in Australia. They are critical to building economic linkages between Australia and India and are also important contributors to Australia’s vibrant multicultural society. I commend the IABCA on this initiative and acknowledge the important role nominees play in building stronger linkages between Australia and India now and into the future.
His Excellency Dr A.M. Gondane
High Commissioner of India in Australia
I am happy to learn that IABCA is hosting the Ceremony to confer the India Australia Business Community Awards, to outstanding Australians of Indian origin on October 13, 2017 at Brisbane.
It is a matter of pride that the community has so well integrated into the Australian landscape and has contributed to the cultural mosaic and entrepreneurial ambiance in Australia.
