Peter Gutwein MP, Premier of Tasmania
There are strong connections between India and Australia, as evidenced by the signing of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership between the Republic of India and Australia in June 2020.
There are also important connections between India and Tasmania. The Tasmanian Trade Strategy, for example, identifies the Indian subcontinent as a key market for Tasmanian business, particularly in the international education, resources and energy, and tourism sectors.
I acknowledge the important work IABCA does to strengthen ties between India and Australia, and by extension India and Tasmania, particularly from a trade and investment perspective.
