“We have developed action plans and programs in alignment with strategies identified by the AIBC National Board to promote mutual trade opportunities in New South Wales. I am pleased to lead a committed and motivated team of professionals and high achievers all focussed on delivering outcomes. Apart from traditional industries like Information Technology, Agriculture, Education, Mining etc, the AIBC NSW Committee will be supporting the, “Make in India Focus Group,” to promote new opportunities in Energy management, Health, Food Processing, Hospitality, Sport and Services sectors.
