Napthine government recognising the value of multicultural media

first_imgVictorian Premier Denis Napthine and the Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Matthew Guy have commended the multicultural media’s role in ensuring all Victorians can access information and feel connected to the community.Attending the October multicultural media conference, Dr Napthine said the purpose of the conferences was to provide multicultural media representatives with access to senior members of the Victorian government, and to provide information on the Victorian Coalition government’s key initiatives, including those specifically relating to multicultural affairs and citizenship.Mr Guy said more than $24.4 million has been allocated to the Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship portfolio in this year’s State Budget.“Multiculturalism is a huge success in this state, it defines us and makes our society stronger. Migrants are coming from a broader range of countries than in the past – meaning Victorians will be speaking a larger number of languages, and practising a wider range of cultures and religions, than ever before,” Mr Guy said.
