Kia ora koutou, Talofa lava. My acknowledgements and warm Pacific greetings to you all.

Hon Aupito William Sio
Speech

Over more than three decades the Business Council has played a crucial role in building business, cultural and trade cooperation between India and New Zealand. And for well over 150 years, members of the Indian community have been choosing Aotearoa as their home, and contributing to our collective future. So much so that Indian New Zealanders now make up the second largest ethnic community in Aotearoa – making significant contributions to New Zealand society.

Korihi Pō, Korihi Ao
E rongo e turia no Matahau
Nō Tū te winiwini, Nō Tū te wanawana
Tū Hikitia rā, Tū Hapainga mai
Ki te Whai Ao, Ki te Ao Mārama
Tihei Mauri Ora!

Kia orāna tatou kātoatoa i te aro’a ‘ua o te atua.

Hon Aupito William Sio
Speech

It is a pleasure to welcome you here tonight, and certainly fitting that the first official visit New Zealand has hosted since COVID is from one of our closest and most special partners: the Cook Islands.
