The delegation will not only be a great opportunity for delegates to network and bond with each other but also explore business prospects in the places visited.” Ms Bimbhet said .

“We will have business meetings with businesswomen in areas of manufacturing, agriculture, education and Knowledge transfer. The delegation will also be visiting and speaking at the Parliament. We will also interact with the Parliamentarians and the Indian diaspora in New Zealand,” shared Vinita Bimbhet.
