A media-focused interaction will also be planned involving all members of our esteemed ethnic media.

Due to time constraints, today’s event was limited only to our community leaders.

Tomorrow, the Hon’ble High Commissioner will also attend the annual India-New Zealand Business Summit alongside Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta.
