The Hon Daniel Andrews MP, Premier of Victoria

I’d like to send my best wishes to everyone involved with the 7th annual India Australia Business & Community Awards (IABCA).


As always, this event is a special opportunity to recognise the achievements of the Indian community here in Australia.


These awards are an opportunity to showcase the hard work of entrepreneurs and businesses – many of whom have come from humble beginnings and made enormous sacrifices to build their success.


Critically, these awards highlight the contribution each and every one of you make to our state and our nation.


Victoria’s relationship with India remains as important as ever. Many of you involved with the IABCA Awards play a vital role in strengthening that partnership. My thanks for your continued efforts and commitment – together, we can grow this partnership for many years to come.



On behalf of our state and our Government, thank you – and congratulations.
