17 Queensland finalists in India-Australia awards

Wednesday 21 August, 2019 | By: Ella Schalch and Trade & Investment Queensland

Seventeen Queenslanders have been named finalists in this year’s India Australia Business & Community Awards (IABCA), including regional exporter Real Time Instruments.

IABCA celebrates the Australia-India relationship and honours migrant entrepreneurship, community leadership, and innovative foreign trade and investment initiatives.

This year, Queenslanders have been named finalists in 13 out of the 14 IABCA categories, one of the strongest showings of any state.

TIQ CEO Paul Martyn congratulated the 17 Queensland finalists, and said the Queensland–India relationship was one to be celebrated.

‘Our state shares a special relationship with India – a relationship to which we are strongly committed and which we continue to build upon,’ he said.

‘Congratulations to all the Queenslanders named IABCA finalists this year, who are helping to strengthen that relationship and deliver real benefits to the community.

‘Queensland is proud to host these national awards for a third year.’

Mackay-based Real Time Instruments is a finalist in the Australian Exporter & Service Provider of the Year category.

The company provides analysers to accurately measure the quality of bulk materials being transported on a conveyor belt for the coal mining, mineral processing, power generation, cement and food manufacturing industries.

Real Time Instruments works with a number of Indian clients to enhance their environmental performance. TIQ’s Mackay office has provided advice to the company on entering new export markets.

The Queensland Government’s Queensland-India Trade and Investment Strategy 2018–2023 aims to generate jobs and economic growth by supporting an even stronger Queensland-India relationship.

In the 12 months ending May 2019, India was Queensland’s third-largest export market, purchasing around $10.3 billion worth of Queensland goods.

Last year’s IABCA winners included Queensland cancer researcher Professor Rajiv Khanna AO, who was named Professional of the Year, and Brisbane community volunteer Reena Augustine, who won the Young Community Achiever Award.

The 2019 winners will be announced at the IABCA gala at Howard Smith Wharves on Friday 11 October. Tickets are available at www.iabca.com.au.

TIQ is leading the Queensland Government’s sponsorship of this year’s awards.
