This is to express my gratitude to all the member associations and their delegates for electing me the president of FINACT for the year 2015-16.
I am honoured and humbled by your trust and confidence in me and am very pleased to have the opportunity to work with you in a number of areas and promote the objectives of FINACT which are, and not restricted to:
- Present a unified front for all its member associations and promote the advancement of people of Indian origin in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and surroundings.
- To promote among the people resident in Australia and, in particular, the ACT an awareness about Indians being responsible Australian citizens and to cultivate a feeling of mutual respect through increased social & cultural interaction, sport and recreation.
To me, the uniqueness and power of FINACT comes from the diversity of its member associations, with their members working in many different linguistic and cultural environments, still sharing the same goal. What binds us all together is our commitment towards mutual respect, harmony and our passion see the progress and happiness in the country we come from (Janma Bhumi, India) and the country we live in (our Karma Bhumi, Australia).
To conclude I along with my committee assure all the constituents of FINACT about our commitment towards coordination, cooperation and collaboration.
