An External Affairs Ministry initiative, primarily that of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, the Conference brought together 120 lawmakers from 23 countries. Not all of them were elected membaers of Parliament but comprises elected representatives of people into local governments as well. The New Zealand delegation comprised Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi, Dr Parmjeet Parmar (National List) and Priyanca Radhakrishnan (Labour List) and Kapiti Coast Mayor K Gurunathan, an Indian of Malaysian origin. India at heart Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that while many people may have left India over the course of hundreds of years, India continues to have a place in their minds and hearts. “It is not surprising that people of Indian origin have integrated themselves fully with Suzannah Jessep, Acting High Commissioner at the New Zealand High Commission in New Delhi with (from left) Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi, Priyanca Radhakrishnan, K Gurunathan and Dr Parmjeet Parmar (Picture supplied) their adopted lands. While they have kept the Indian-ness alive in themselves, they have also imbibed the language, food, and dress of those countries,” he said. Describing the assembly as a ‘Mini World Parliament of Indian Origin,’ he said Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) are today Prime Ministers of Mauritius, Portugal and Ireland and that PIO have also been Heads of State and Heads of Government in many other countries. Changing impressions “The global impression about India has changed over the last three to four years because India is transforming itself. The hopes and aspirations of India are at an all-time high and signs of irreversible change are visible in every sector,” he said. Mr Modi said that Ms Swaraj has been continuously keeping an eye on issues faced by Indian citizens abroad. The ‘MADAD’ portal for real time monitoring and response of consular grievances has been active, he said. “We believe that Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) are partners in India’s development. NRIs have an important position in the Action Agenda till 2020, drafted by the NITI Aayog,” he said. Civilisation values Mr Modi said that the values of Indian civilisation and culture can provide guidance to the entire world, in an era of instability. “India has very close ties with ASEAN countries, which will be showcased during the Republic Day celebrations on January 26, 2018,” he said. India on Tuesday reached out to lawmakers of Indian origin spread across the world seeking support for its emerging status as a global power. Ms Swaraj had two dimensions- the present situation and the past struggle; and what the PIO Parliamentarians can do to promote the emerging India on the global scene. Radio New Zealand (RNZ) and Indian Newslink have announced a ‘Content-Sharing Partnership’ with effect from January 8, 2018. Indian Newslink publishes a fortnightly newspaper with a readership of more than 65,000, making it the most-read Indian newspaper in New Zealand. It also runs several news websites such as http://www. indiannewslink.co.nz, and is prominent in organising a number of awards for the New Zealand Indian community. The new arrangement maintains RNZ’s policy of sharing content with media partners and extends to 13 the number of agreements in place with a range of media organisations. Helpful Partner Glen Scanlon, RNZ’s head of digital, said that the Agreement with Indian Newslink was in keeping with RNZ’s push to work with different media outlets and reach more New Zealanders. “We really want to be a helpful partner to the broader journalism industry and believe these kinds of deals allow us to do that while making sure we meet all of our charter commitments to reach Kiwis with their stories. We expect to announce more partnerships in the future,” he said. Editor and General Manager of Indian Newslink, Venkat Raman, emphasised the importance of the new relationship. Accuracy and Speed “While accuracy is paramount and sacred to any news organisation, speed is equally important in today’s world, which constantly looks for news updates. Digital technology makes that requirement standard, and our tie-up with Radio New Zealand will also enhance credibility and quality. “This is an exciting development in media relationship and we in Indian Newslink look forward to meaningful and professional partnership with Radio New Zealand. “The South Asian community is of growing importance to New Zealand and to the world and we believe that with Radio New Zealand, we will be in a better position to disseminate information through reports and features,” he said.
