Ratan Tata, the Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons, has been awarded the Order of Australia (AO), which is Australia’s highest civilian honour. The announcement was made by Australia’s High Commissioner to India, Barry O’Farrell. The award was given to Tata in recognition of his contributions towards strengthening the bilateral relations between India and Australia. Tata has been a strong supporter of the 2022 India-Australia Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement, and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is said to have the largest workforce of any Indian company in Australia, with around 17,000 employees.
Ratan Tata was recently named an Honorary Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AO) for his contributions in promoting trade, investment, and philanthropy between India and Australia. This recognition was given to him just a month before he received Australia’s highest civilian honour for his efforts in strengthening the bilateral relations between the two countries.
