Premier Baird with Rekha Rajvanshi and Kavita Shukla


It is a pleasure to send my greetings to everyone celebrating Indian Republic Day this year in New South Wales, at the same time as Australia Day.

Indian Australians have made invaluable contributions to the social, cultural, professional and economic life of New South Wales.

Like Australia’s vibrant multicultural society, the Indian community is home to many ancestries and languages, with members arriving from a variety of countries to make their new home here.

After my visit to India last year, I am confident that our nations will grow even closer as we embrace trade partnerships and cultural opportunities.

I wish to thank the Indian community for its commitment to interfaith dialogue and in fostering social harmony, and wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season.

Mike Baird
