Victorian Liberals commit to ‘putting multicultural communities front and centre’


Victoria’s diverse and growing multicultural communities will be put front and centre by the Victorian Liberals and Nationals, John Pesutto MP said in a press release. 

Victoria is proudly the centre of multiculturalism within Australia – with Victorians from more than 200 countries, who speak 260 languages and follow 135 different faiths, calling the state home today.

“My parents, like many others, came to Australia from southern Italy in the 1960s and taught me the important values and principles that guide me today,” Mr Pesutto said.

“The Liberal Party proudly put forward many candidates from multicultural backgrounds at the recent election, and are deeply pleased to have elected Trung Luu, the first ever Vietnamese-Australian Liberal Member of Parliament. 

“Multicultural communities have and continue to contribute enormously to what makes Victoria great.”

Mr Pesutto will take on the role of Victorian Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs within the Shadow Cabinet team. Mr Luu will be Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Multicultural Affairs.
