As a ‘guest nation,’ India has been invited as the first ever country to be hosted at the Sydney Royal Easter Show (SRES). This is seen as a great opportunity for India to showcase its indigenous skill and prowess overseas. India’s participation is being viewed as a gesture towards elevating mutual cooperation.
Known as the Easter Show, the Sydney Royal Easter Show is a celebration of Australian culture and the flagship event of the Royal Agricultural Society of New South Wales (RAS), a not-for-profit organisation founded in 1822 to measure and maintain excellence in agriculture. Not only does it celebrate the contribution of agriculture in Australia, but it also applauds its highest achievers in agricultural excellence.
At the opening of the Indian pavilion, the visiting delegation from India was led by officials of the India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO), a government of India enterprise, promoting Indian trade globally.
Praising the contribution of Indian migrants to Australia, RAS Chief Executive Michael Kenny said, today there is a community of nearly 400,000 Indian Australians who contribute to the greater national community in their roles as farmers and rural workers as well as teachers, doctors, accountants, engineers and researchers. Over 85 exhibitors from India will be housed in the Guest Nation India Pavilion, for 14 days during the Easter Show.
