Minister for Citizenship and Communities
NSW is one of the greatest success stories of multiculturalism anywhere in the world.
People from more than 140 countries have made this state their home. We are all proud Australians from a diverse range of backgrounds.
We welcome this diversity. It has contributed to our rich and vibrant cultural life, it has become part of who we are and it represents one of our state’s most important and valuable economic assets.
One in five small businesses – a vital part of the NSW economy - are owned by people born overseas. New citizens are helping NSW forge stronger international business links for the advantage of the whole state.
The NSW Government is promoting community harmony through building understanding and appreciation of our differences because what we have in common transcends race, ethnicity and religion.
We encourage inter-cultural and inter-faith activities that help bring diverse groups of people together.
In my role as Minister for Citizenship and Communities, I believe that by working with you, we can build unity from diversity.
