INDIA DAY 2020
Vision for Ireland-India-EU in a post-COVID / BREXIT World including
BUSINESS MATCHMAKING PROGRAMME
The Ireland India Council established India Day in Ireland in 2015 with a collaborative partnership from the Office of Public Works, An Garda Síochána, Embassy of India and various civic bodies. In the last five years, approximately 40 thousand people visited Farmleigh Estate to attend this event. Since the first India day, it has grown into the largest Irish-Indian celebration in Ireland. India Day provides an opportunity in one place to experience Indian culture, heritage, music, art, crafts and meditation along with Indian and continental cuisine with exciting entertainment.
This initiative has received outstanding support in establishing India Day from Mr Seán Ó Fearghaíl the Ceann Comhairle (Speaker of Irish Parliament), former Taoiseach Mr Leo Varadkar and Mr Enda Kenny, Former Tánaiste's Ms Frances Fitzgerald and Ms Joan Burton. It is also supported by central and State Indian government agencies. On the launch of the 2nd India Day in 2016, the first Ireland-India Parliamentary Friendship Group first time established and inaugurated from the Farmleigh.
The main themes for the day are medical, environmental, trade, tourism and education. This promises to be very engaging with lively debates. In addition, we have a varied and fun social programme including yoga, meditation, dancing and fashion.
