Business Council gives Stamp of approval
14 Nov 2013
The India New Zealand Business Council (INZBC) has welcomed the release of the first New Zealand Diwali postal stamps last week at Parliament. The Stamps, especially designed to celebrate the 2013 Diwali festival of lights, was presented by Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi MP to Prime Minister Hon John Key and Ethnic Affairs Minister Hon. Judith Collins.
The Stamps feature a New Zealand fern and Diwali symbols in a complementing design.
INZBC Chair Sunil Kaushal welcomed the release of the Stamps as the local Indian community and India celebrate the annual festival.
"It's wonderful that New Zealand is celebrating India's diversity in culture with the release of this Stamp. The INZBC is focused on growing awareness of business opportunities between both countries and welcomes opportunities to also celebrate and acknowledge the deep cultural heritage of India" said Mr. Kaushal.
The INZBC has nearly 200 corporate members representing over more than 100,000 New Zealand employees who are engaged or aspire to trading with India.
"New Zealand's engagement with India is growing rapidly, in quite a wide range of fields. Marking Diwali in New Zealand in this way signifies a growing and stronger engagement between both countries, which the Council welcomes."
Diwali is marked around the country in many towns and cities each year. "The INZBC congratulates NZ Post and Government for marking Diwali 2013 in this way and look forward to other initiatives to raise the awareness of India and all it's uniqueness" said Mr Kaushal.
