Multicultural Affairs promoted to Federal ministry

RCOA welcomed the inclusion of Multicultural Affairs as a Ministerial portfolio in the reshuffle of the Federal Government frontbench announced by Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

RCOA CEO Paul Power said Senator Kate Lundy’s promotion to the positions of Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Minister for Sport was recognition of her impressive work as Parliamentary Secretary for Immigration and Multicultural Affairs.

In a statement, Mr Power said RCOA welcomed the elevation of Multicultural Affairs to a ministerial portfolio as an important opportunity for refugee resettlement policy to be discussed at a more senior level within the Government. The statement can be viewed at:
