‘Friend of Australia’ appoints Parineeti Chopra as ambassador

Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra has been appointed by Tourism Australia as the ambassador for the ‘Friend of Australia’ advocacy panel. Apparently, Chopra becomes the first Indian women ambassador for the advocacy panel.

Parineeti Chopra joins Chef Sanjeev Kapoor and cricket expert Harsha Bhogle as fellow Indian friends of Australia, who have helped tourism Australia in past by encouraging Indian tourists to visit Australia. The FOA programme has helped Tourism Australia to initiate long-term ‘friendships’ with those they regard as unique, positive and influential storytellers.

“I am extremely delighted today to be appointed as a Friend of Australia since Australia is one of my favourite holiday destinations. I had visited the country last year and I feel there is so much more to explore that one trip is not enough,” Parineeti Chopra said on being appointed as the ambassador by FOA.

She added, “The country has much more to offer and I’m fascinated by its warm and welcoming people, spectacular nature, unique wildlife, world-class food and wine options and smorgasbord of adventure activities. I’m all excited for my next trip to Australia, visiting Brisbane, Gold Coast and Ayers Rock, and would recommend everyone to experience the country once in their lifetime as there’s truly nothing like Australia.”

This appointment will help Australia in further strengthening the ties with India.
