Publication celebrates the Indian Diaspora in the city
In an effort to recognise, profile and promote entrepreneurship in the community, The Indian Sun launched the first edition of Adelaide’s Who’s Who on 24 February at Sammy’s Marina in Glenelg. The event, which was largely attended by SMEs in South Australia, was welcomed by the Indian community.
The launch edition recognised select businesses that have inspired and made the Indian community in Australia proud. Adelaide is a popular city with the growing Indian diaspora. Many skilled residents living in NSW and Victoria are increasingly choosing Adelaide as a city to raise their children. As per the census report from 2016, over 25,000 Indian born residents live and work in Adelaide. These figures do not include Indians on work visa or students. The number of Indians living in South Australia can easily be over 50,000 if you add up non-residents and students.
To service the growing community in Adelaide, businesses owned and operated by Indian born residents are on the rise. Adelaide’s first Who’s Who for the Indian community have largely profiled successful and known businesses from the community. The Indian Sun has been republishing some of the profiles in our monthly publication since its first launch at the 2018 IEC Awards in Melbourne.
Ketan Kale, General Manager of Coles Express, delivered the key note address at the event. Kale was the IEC Young Executive of the Year winner in 2018. Kanwal Singh, who is also in charge of The Indian Sun in Adelaide, joined the community to launch the first ever edition.
The event was sponsored by Travel Care, Global Constructions, TRV Homes, Airvoice and Sammy’s on the Marina located at Glenelg.
