Join­ing awards

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

The Auck­land City Har­bour News has agreed to join the spon­sors of the In­dian Newslink In­dian Busi­ness Awards.

Sub­ur­ban News­pa­pers Auck­land, part of the Fair­fax Me­dia group, will spon­sor the best small busi­ness cat­e­gory.

Subur­bans edi­tor­inDavid Ke­meys said he was de­lighted.

“We have enor­mous re­gard for the achieve­ments of mem­bers of the In­dian com­mu­nity, both in a cul­tural and com­mer­cial sense,” he says.

“The small busi­ness cat­e­gory is an ideal fit for us be­cause our news­pa­pers help turn small busi­nesses into big­ger ones by putting them in touch with mas­sive audiences.”

Mr Ke­meys says it is in­creas­ingly im­por­tant to en­gage with the In­dian com­mu­nity be­cause it con­tin­ues to grow, and some ar­eas of the city are see­ing large In­dian com­mu­ni­ties es­tab­lished.

“There is a very long and proud his­tory of In­dian im­mi­gra­tion into New Zealand and mem­bers of the In­dian com­mu­nity have al­ways been at the fore­front of busi­ness and in­no­va­tion and we are proud to recog­nise that.”

Sub­ur­ban News­pa­pers pub­lishes more than 21 edi­tions a week, with about a mil­lion news­pa­pers go­ing into the com­mu­nity.

“We are by far the big­gest pub­lish­ers in the area,” Mr Ke­meys says.

“There is no short­age of busi­ness awards, but th­ese show­case the con­tri­bu­tion the In­dian com­mu­nity makes to busi­ness in this coun­try and that is well worth cel­e­brat­ing.”
