NZITA had the pleasure of meeting the new High Commissioner from India, His Excellency Mr. Muktesh Pardeshi in his office in Wellington on 30 Oct 2019. Mr Pardeshi was posted in Mexico last, where he was instrumental in doubling the trade from USD5.9 billion to USD10.15 billion in 3 years. We need someone with the drive, experience and zeal of Mr Pardeshi to take NZ India trade relationship to the next step. Mr Pardeshi stressed that NZ companies can not expect quick wins but need to be prepared for long term relationships with Indian companies. NZITA team of Giri Gupta (Chair), Dr. Hon Richard Worth (Vice Chair) and Surinder Ogra (General Secretary) talked about why NZITA is different and unique in the way it provides member benefits. NZITA looks forward to a fruitful relationship with The High Commissioner and will aim to have joint events in future.
