  Message From National Chair

Dear AIBC members

I am pleased to launch this inaugural issue of the Australia India Business Council Newsletter. I congratulate Tanya Unni in bringing this publication together and supplementing it with social media.

This issue demonstrates the power of bringing together knowledge, resources and tools to help to better connect on a business to business level.

We are now energising our primary mission of increasing the trade and investment between India and Australia. Please use this publication to facilitate and grow business opportunities and consolidate existing ones.

Please use the Hot Line on our website if you have any questions or recommendations to increase the trade and investment in the increasingly important India Australia bilateral relationship.

Yours sincerely
Jim Varghese AM
National Chair
