Tata Group’s former chairman, Ratan Tata, was recently honored with the highest Australian civilian honor, the Order of Australia. He was recognized for his remarkable efforts to strengthen ties between India and Australia, particularly in areas like commerce, business, and philanthropy.
In his tweet, the Australian High Commissioner to India, Barry ‘O’ Farrell, who handed over the award, said, “Ratan Tata is a titan of biz, industry, and philanthropy not just in India, but his contributions have also made a significant impact in Australia. Delighted to confer Order of Australia (AO) honor to Ratan Tata in recognition of his longstanding commitment to the Australian and Indian relationship.”
Ratan Tata has been a pioneer in the development of close economic and cultural ties between the two nations. He vehemently supports the 2022-effective India-Australia Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement. With over 17,000 employees, Tata Consultancy’s Australian business, which opened its doors in 1998, has the largest Indian company workforce in Australia. Six Australian non-profit organizations are also given free IT support by TCS Australia.
The Order of Australia honour comes a month after the industrialist was appointed as an Honorary Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AO) for his service to foster Indo-Australia ties.
