A Commonwealth Multicultural Act

We are very lucky in Australia to have such a great diversity of language, of communities. However we don’t harness all of those skills that we bring to this country…

We are going to be working to reassure not only our own base, because we don’t want to speak to the converted, we also want to speak to the broader Australian community, to middle Australia to make them understand that multiculturalism is not a threat, multiculturalism is an asset, and a benefit that can really enhance Australia’s capabilities in this smaller and smaller world.“
