More than 300 Indian business leaders visited Adelaide this past week as part of the Horasis India conference.

Speakers at the meeting included Joe Tapera Mhishi, Zimbabwe’s Ambassador to Australia.

Said the Ambassador, “Since it’s independence Zimbabwe has never been known as an exporter of wheat. As I am talking now, the information on the ground is that only Zimbabwe and Ethiopa has a wheat surplus on the African continent.”

“Also, Zimbabwe is in it’s third consecutive year of mais surplus,” added Mhishi.

Mhishi spoke at the Horasis India Meeting, which was co-hosted by the Government of South Australia and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

The conference brought together influential groups of business leaders to discuss collaborative approaches to addressing sustainable growth and Indo-Pacific economic opportunities. 

“In the face of environmental and economic challenges met by the Indo-Pacific region, the time has come for its leaders to assemble, with the prospering City of Adelaide being the centre for this dialogue,” said Dr Frank-Jurgen Richter, Horasis Founder and Chairman.

“Only by working together will we be able to inspire our future and address unprecedented environmental and economic challenges.”

In addition to the Ambassador, speakers at Horasis India Meeting included Ashishkumar Chauhan, Managing Director and CEO at the National Stock Exchange of India; Ramakrishnan Mukundan, CEO Tata Chemicals; Tim Thomas, CEO Centre for Australia India Relations; Jodi McKay, Chair of Australia-India Business Council, Girish Ramachandran, President Asia-Pacific, Tata Consultancy Services in Singapore; as well as Australian leaders including Barry O-Farrell, former Premier of New South Wales; Michael Knox, Chief Economist at Morgans Australia and Sanjeev Gandhi, CEO Orica Australia.
