AIBO is a community not for profit organisation and laconic abbreviation stands for Australia India Business Organisation. The name that speaks for itself and for the activities done so far and are planned for the future. We say: business happens when like-minded people meet with ignited minds.
With numerous guests present, the event welcomed among many the VIP guests of honor: Craig Ondarchie MP, a State Member for Northern Metropolitan, .Jim Overend - Ray White Craigieburn, Deepak Vinayak JP at Liberal Victoria , many business owners with the Australians of Indian origin interested in Australia-India relationship development and lots of other guests. The event was MC-ed by talented Prashansa Prashar Kapoor . The event was opened by the speech of Craig Ondarchie and followed by the speeches of the other guests of the event. We will highlight the key ideas of the presenters and the major points of their speeches.
The initiative of establishing the AIBO by Tamilmurasu Ragupathy, Manish Dhingra and Neelam Rai is absolutely great keeping in mind that Indian immigrant community in Australia has its unique niche. It currently grows in the direction to be financially, economically and personally inter-connected to both Australia and India. As the community grows from its original volume and reaches new altitude, AIBO will be paying a significant role in catering the growing needs of small businesses on each side of the ocean and across both nations. We see the greater opportunities for the Indian community benefiting from Australia India Business Organization built!
The Sunday meeting hosted Kapil Thakkar who talked on ethics and communities.
Australia India Business Organization, AIBO's major purpose is to make and develop the ties between India and Australia.The secret of good relationship is very simple: to work in close tandem and to cultivate and nurture the united and healthy bridges between two nations and countries. The community now has the organisation with such a fantastic platform that takes initiative of unquestionably biggest leap towards promoting and creating extraordinary business opportunities between Australia and India.
While there is an abundance of opportunities for business created between both countries, there is also an enormous scope of serious work in the many sectors across such businesses with some obvious cross-country investment possibilities. There are also and obviously challenges that both sides will be able to overcome together with support of such not for profit organisation as AIBO and as a result to facilitate some targeted investments in many industries and markets between both countries.
Traditionally India and Australia shared the common values in business, politics and economics as well as common constitutional statements which makes the work between two countries very positive and easy. The aim of the AIBO to establish not only the international links but the strong local community, government and federal connections.
Neelam in her speech on stage has kindly offered Craig to be an official patron of AIBO the suggestion which Craig kindly accepted with a humble mention that Neelam is soon to be the first Indian woman in the Australian Parliament.
The event went on while the first members started to join the organisation on the spot.
The speech of Ginny Kohli Gulati highlighted the importance of establishing the Australian India Business Organisation. With innovations and ideas like no other, the focus is on building stronger links between Australia and India trade to give true benefit to small business operators. AIBO will provide a base for entrepreneurs to come forward and share ideas in growth and development. The focus of this organisation is first of all on fostering friendships, exchange business ideas, build organic connections and to create special opportunities by building relationships between Autsralia and India and working together towards success and growth.
