Mark McGowan, Premier of Western Australia

I take this opportunity to express my support for the seventh annual India Australia Business and Community Awards, and to commend the organisers for their commitment to ever-strengthening the relationship between India and Australia.

The awards actively encourage and celebrate the many business professionals and community leaders who devote themselves to enhancing mutually beneficial links between our two countries. 

One of the many benefits of the awards is that they play a key role in drawing attention to the breadth of skills and aptitude brought to Western Australia by migrant entrepreneurs and businesses, particularly Western Australians from Indian heritage.

This year, the awards will also call attention to the resilience of our Indian community leaders, particularly during the recent difficult times we have all experienced together, while underlining that we all play a part in supporting each other.

I congratulate the organisers of the India Australia Business and Community Awards for their work in promoting the achievements of migrant entrepreneurs and community leaders, many of whom are members of Western Australia's Indian communities. culturally.
