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.
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.
It gives me immense pleasure to learn that India Australia Business and Community Awards have been instituted to recognize outstanding leaders among Indian Australians in the field of business and community service. In recent years, the Indian community has not only emerged as one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in Australia but also one that is increasingly recognised for its contribution to a diverse range and much more. Indians are particularly known for their entrepreneurial ability and have been able to translate this in to successful business ventures that are now visible in almost walk of life. The drive to succeed in business often accompanied by a commitment towards community service and I am delighted that both attributes are being recognised in the India-Australia Business and Community Awards. I convey my best wishes to the organisers for their excellent initiative and for the success of the India-Australia Business and Community Awards 2017.
