The India Australia Business & Community Alliance (IABCA) marked ten years of continued collaboration by hosting its first-ever IABCA India Showcase, which was well-received by both governments.

This event, from Feb 13 to 17 served as an opportunity to expand the organization's global presence.

Across a 12-month campaign that outshined on Wednesday, the IABCA platform brought together 400 key influencers and bi-lateral leaders from across the two nations.

Composed of the IABCA Global Leaders Forum and the Awards Ceremony, this ‘meeting of minds’ connected entrepreneurs, innovators, and disruptors from across Australia and India.

Speaking about the inaugural IABCA India Immersion Week launch, High Commissioner of Australia to India, Hon Barry O’Farrell said, “I welcome IABCA’s decision to expand its scope and showcase the amazing depth of our bilateral business and community links in Mumbai and New Delhi. Congratulations to all the IABCA 2023 Finalists."

The IABCA Global Leaders Forum featured two separate panel discussions that explored the India-Australia relationship across Bilateral partnerships and its significance, and The Soft Power Panel was across raising Australia’s 'India literacy' and enhancing 'Australia literacy' all wrapped up with a wonderful keynote by Mr Girish Tanti, Vice Chairman of Suzlon Group.

Following the Global Leaders Forum, guests were transferred across to an awards ceremony that honoured 14 winners across trade and investment for their bilateral contributions.

IABCA most coveted award, the IABCA Lifetime Achievement Award, was conferred to Amb. Harinder Sidhu, Former High Commissioner of Australia to India.

Speaking about the IABCA inaugural India biennial decision, Ex- Ambassador & Secretary Ministry of External Affairs Anil Wadhwa said, “The India Australia Business and Community Alliance is just ten years old, however, has effectively taken centre stage in the Australia-India relationship as a leading platform that connects businesses, people, and institutions in both countries with an ease and comfort which no other institution can."

"Through its web of initiatives aimed at forging connections which are vital for sustaining the bilateral relationship between the two countries, IABCA initiatives and awards are much sought after and heavily subscribed.

"This year IABCA will showcase this power of connections in India in 2023 - the program is much welcomed in New Delhi and in Mumbai.”
