Minister for Multiculturalism, Ray Williams, has officially opened Multicultural NSW’s new office in Parramatta. “It’s only natural Multicultural NSW operates in the beating heart of the multicultural communities it serves and represents day in, and day out,” Mr Williams said.
“The NSW Government is excited by the immense opportunities in our country’s most multicultural region, Greater Western Sydney. This move positions Parramatta and the region as a centre of excellence for multicultural policy and community engagement in our State.” The move was welcomed by Parliamentary Secretary for Multiculturalism and Parramatta MP Dr Geoff Lee. “This is a vote of confidence for Parramatta and an ongoing commitment to our city’s future,” Dr Lee said.
“Here is another example of the huge opportunities for local businesses and the community as a direct result of the NSW Government’s ‘Decade of Decentralisation’ policy.” The office opening coincided with the launch of Multicultural March, a month-long celebration of cultural diversity and our multicultural society in NSW. Multicultural NSW Chief Executive Officer Hakan Harman said the agency was delighted to move to Parramatta.
“This is a historic moment for our agency. We look forward to celebrating our 40th anniversary and countless milestones to come in this thriving and vibrant city.” For more information about Multicultural NSW’s new Parramatta location and Multicultural March visit: http://multicultural.nsw.gov.au/
