UK's Eastern Eye associates with Zee to host Asian Business Awards

MUMBAI: The UK-based Asian newspaper and main voice of the country's Asian community, Eastern Eye and Zee Network have joined hands to host the 10th Eastern Eye Asian Business Awards. The awards, which honour the successes of British Asian entrepreneurs, will be taking place on Wednesday 19 April at The Grosvenor House Hotel, London.

Organised by Ethnic Media Group, the UK's leading publisher of weekly newspapers, magazines, websites and digital newspapers for Britain's African, Caribbean, Black British and Asian communities, the event celebrates its 10th successful annual ceremony. Now recognised internationally, the event has evolved from an annual business awards ceremony to establishing itself as an affluent institution.

Six awards will be announced covering, Young Achiever of the Year, Newcomer of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, ACAS Award, Community Award and the most coveted award, Business of the Year. Each year the ceremony is presented by leading public figures and this momentous year is no exception with main anchor for Sky News, Lisa Aziz and Channel Four news journalist, Krishnan Guru-Murthry, informs an official release.

Eastern Eye, which targets readers from the Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi communities, carries UK and foreign news, politics and sport, as well as a large section on the UK Asian music scene with Bollywood interviews and cheeky exclusives on the rich and famous, the release adds.

Gurmeet Khangura, chairman of Ethnic Media Group, which publishes Eastern Eye, comments: "We are delighted to partner with Zee Network to celebrate 10 years of honouring the Asian men and women in the UK business market. These individuals have not only established themselves as important contributors to the nation's economy, but their innovation and hard work have further inspired younger entrepreneurs striving to achieve the same levels of success for themselves."

Subroto Bhattacharya, head of Business - UK & Europe for Zee Network adds, "Zee Network is proud to be associated with such a prestigious event as the Eastern Eye Asian Business Awards 2006 and we are honoured to be able to support the success of the Asian community in the UK."
