The Hon Gladys Berejiklian MP, Premier of New South Wales
It is my great pleasure to congratulate the nominees and all those involved in the India Australia Business and Community Awards.
This event is an official recognition of outstanding contributions made by people serving their community through sports, exports, businesses, restaurants, travel agencies, and outstanding leadership.
The NSW Government is proud of the close ties established between India and our state, especially through the skills, experiences and connections enhanced by our residents of Indian heritage.
With strong links to Gujarat and Maharashtra, NSW is poised to develop our bilateral relations even further. Events such as this formally recognise the strong contributions made by community members to all aspects of Australian life, and I congratulate the organisers for their vision.
Heartfelt congratulations to all the nominees and thank you for all you do in supporting a stronger NSW, and even stronger and deeper ties between Australia and India.
