Message from the National Chair

The Australia-India partnership continues to evolve in different ways – economy, diaspora, culture – each inextricably linked to the other. 

In the government sphere, the launch of the NSW Parliamentary Friends of India at the NSW Parliament in Sydney, coinciding with celebrations for Holi, India’s festival of colours, was a special moment in this growing relationship. 

It signifies how important both India and the Indian diaspora are to our states.

It was an honour for us at AIBC to be associated with the launch and engage closely with the NSW Parliamentary Friends of India.

I extend a very warm welcome to Neetu Bhaagotia, the first Indian Consul General in Queensland. Establishing the Consulate in Brisbane is a testimony to the expanding economic relationship between Queensland and India, as well as the rapidly growing diaspora in the city of Brisbane. I also thank Archana Singh, the honorary Consul General in Brisbane, for her support for over a decade. 

An industry-led approach is integral to AIBC’s role and in this context, I want to mention some of our recent initiatives including with India’s NASSCOM and India’s Sports Goods Export Promotion Council.

Over the course of the year, we hope to bring you more industry-specific opportunities and welcome your ideas and suggestions. 

Warm regards,

Best wishes,   

Jodi McKay
