Tata Group's former chairman and one of the most respected business leaders, Ratan Tata, was recently honored with the highest Australian civilian honor, the Order of Australia. He was recognised for his remarkable efforts to strengthen ties between India and Australia, particularly in areas like commerce, business and philanthropy.

The Australian High Commissioner to India, Barry 'O' Farrell, who handed over the Award to Tata posted some images from the event and tweeted, "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) honour to Ratan Tata in recognition of his longstanding commitment to the Australian and Indian relationship,” tweeted the Australian High Commissioner.

The business tycoon has consistently pushed for the development of close economic and cultural ties between the two nations. He vigorously 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 organisations are also given free IT support by TCS Australia.
