Australian Organisations in Asia Directory - India
Indo-Australian Chamber of Commerce
The Chamber was born of great parentage – Prime Minister Bob Hawke of Australia and Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi of India signed a Charter at Canberra in 1986, creating a vision of the two institutions – the Indo-Australian Chamber of Commerce and the Indo-Australian Joint Business Council. The Chamber was formally inaugurated by His Excellency Mr. G.B. Feakes, the Australian High Commissioner to India, on 22 June 1989. Mr. M.K. Kumar, one of India’s leading management professionals and the then President of ASSOCHAM, played an important role in that landmark event.
