It is coming to the end of 2017 and AIBC had a very busy year. It is my privilege to share some of the national initiatives undertaken by the AIBC. Additionally, AIBC has organised several state initiatives led by the State Presidents and their teams. The State Presidents will continue to share their initiatives with you which have not been included in this letter.
The Australia-India relationship has taken a positive turn. The Foreign White Policy Paper clearly highlights the importance of Asia and also India in Australia’s foreign policy. The India Economic Strategy 2035 announced by Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull has been welcomed by AIBC. Mr. Peter Varghese AO, former Foreign Secretary and the leader of this strategy has been in consultations with various stakeholders, including AIBC.
