Venkat Raman

While Indian Newslink Indian Business Awards (INLIBA) have been established to recognise and reward achievers, the patronage of multinational and national companies in promoting the Scheme cannot be over-emphasised,” Jacob Mannothra, Managing Director of Indian Newslink has said.

“We believe that the Indian business community is one of the most significant partners in New Zealand’s progress and development. It is gratifying that over the years, INLIBA have become the single most significant avenue to recognise and reward their success,” he said, speaking at the Dinner organised in honour of the Sponsors of the Awards 2015 at Pullman Hotel on Monday, September 21, 2015.

“We are grateful to our Sponsors for their patronage and support. They have been instrumental in the growth of the Awards Scheme from strength to strength. Various categories have evinced the interest of a wide range of companies owned, operated, managed and franchised by people of Indian origin,” Mr Mannothra said.

Title Sponsor

Ansuya Naidoo and Tara Lennon, respectively Head of Indian Community Banking and Commercial Partner at BNZ, said that the Bank was extremely happy to be associated with the Award programme as the Title Sponsor and as Sponsor of the ‘Best Large Business’ Category and ‘Supreme Business of the Year Award.’

“We look forward to the Awards Night,” they said.

Dr Jebamalai Vinanchiarachi, a former Principal Adviser to the Director General of United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), will be among the Guests of Honour at the Awards Night. He is currently Chairman of ‘Experience Foundation.’ His previous assignments were at University of Malaya (Senior Research Fellow) and Cardinal Sleemis School of Management, Trivandrum, Kerala (Director).
