Indian Diaspora, New Zealand gets a new hub.

Muktesh Pardeshi, India’s High Commissioner to New Zealand said that the Centre, along with other facilities and services will make the Indian Mission the cultural and social platform of the Indian Diaspora. The multiple complex is nearing completion and is likely to become operational over the next two months. The Centre is estimated to cost approximately $80 million. The Community Centre being constructed as a part of the new Indian High Commission Building in Pipitea in Wellington. Registered Indian Associations and the people of Indian origin are being offered free access to the said community Centre.

India’s External Affairs Minister Dr. Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, is being speculated as the one who is inaugurating the said building. This will depend on various factors, not the least of which is the opening of the border and the need for international travelers to spend time in MIQ.

The High Commissioner was speaking at an online Discussion organized by Indians Living in Auckland Facebook Group, Indian Newslink.

He further added, “We would have facility for the various States of India (especially those represented by people in New Zealand) to showcase their artefacts and culture within the Community Centre. This Centre will also be available for Associations to conduct their Annual General Meeting and programmes catering to about 300 people, while those keen on conducting music and dance classes will also be welcome.”

Indeed the Indian Diaspora is honoured and acknowledged by these reciprocations from the Indian High Commission.
