New Delhi, Sep 27 (IANS) Supriya Banerji, a senior director of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), has been named a recipient of the 'Officer of the Order of the British Empire'.

The earlier recipients include Jamshed Irani, former President of CII and director of Tata Sons, CII said Wednesday.

The then co-chairman of the Indo-British Partnership Initiative, Irani was awarded the Knight of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth during her visit to India in October 1997.

Tarun Das, chief mentor of CII received the Commander of the Order of the British Empire, in May 1998 and Rama Naidu, a CII director received the Member of the Order of the British Empire in the same year.

'These awards were in recognition of the pioneering work done for furthering Indo-British ties,' said CII.

Supriya has headed CII's UK office for close to eight years. She has also served as head of the CII southern region, and the International Division of CII.

As head of the UK Office, which has been in operation for 25 years, later as head of CII's international work, Banerji led multiple initiatives, which helped improve Indo-British business linkages, the industry body said.
