The summit consisted of a series of speeches focusing on Visa Procedures, Migration, Education and Business Opportunities. Prominent speakers from the Australian High Commission, the Victorian Government Business Office, the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) along with co-Sponsors and various members voiced their views on business opportunities available in Australia.
Changepond Technologies, a member of the Chamber, presented their expansion plans in Australia for 2014. Mr. Balaji Subramaniam, VP – Global Delivery, showcased company’s unique initiatives like CEAT (Changepond Education and Assessment Technology Labs) & ChangepondSport and the excellent synergy between the Australian market need and Changepond competencies.

Mr. Ganapathi, Former Consul General of India at Sydney, while addressing the inaugural session of the event, said, “Dynamics of the global engagement is very much in an Asia-Pacific direction.” Business opportunities are abundant but bi-lateral trade relationship between India and Australia is on the decline with a deficit of around 14.5% during the year 2012-13 over the previous year. Director of the Chamber, C. Sarat Chandran, said, “Australia’s technology edge and India’s cost advantage is a formidable combination to create a win-win situation for both the countries.”The Indo-Australian Chamber of Commerce
