Friday 19 June 2015: Today, Indian Community is one of the fastest growing communities in Australia. There are nearly half a million people of Indian origin who call Australia home. India has recently been identified as one of the key regional nations that are most important to Australia and both countries claim to be open for business. These developments look promising.
The research report, ‘Merrh-ma~Samanvaya: Socio-Economic Impacts of Indian Migration To Australia’, was released on 18 June 2015 by Mr. Sunjay Sudhir, Consul General of India in Sydney. This research (funded by the Consulate General of India in Sydney and conducted by Aei4eiA (research partner) and SEVA (community partner)) is a significant step that highlights the fact that from the days of Lascars, Manly Sikhs and Ghans through to the modern days of skilled migrants, Indians have been highly contributing- socio-economically, to the growth and development of Australia and is capable of contributing more if the focal issue of 3Us (Un-employment, Under-employment and Under-Utilisation) is addressed.
