“As New Zealand and India celebrate the 70th anniversary of formal diplomatic relations between the two countries, I am happy to note that our ties have been growing stronger than ever. The trade between the two countries continued despite the global challenges and I see a massive potential for the growth in coming times,” she added.

Speaking at the launch of “Modi@20: Dreams Meet Delivery” at the Kiwi Indian Hall of Fame Awards 202, Jaishankar hailed PM Modi's achievements as a head of government in state and Centre.

"Prime Minister Modi inspires 20 years in office and many more still to come. The energy in the room today reiterated this faith shared by so many across the world,” Jaishankar said.

"Sometime last year, a few of us were approached on a very interesting project. Prime Minister Modi was completing 20 years continuously as a head of government. This was putting together both his state and his federal 10 years. And in democratic politics. This is not a small achievement, because it requires successive mandates from the people," he added.
