Multicultural Communities Council (MCC) presents credentials to Minister for Citizenship and Communities
A delegation of MCC NSW, consisting of the Office Bearers, attended to NSW Parliament House on Thursday 14 August 2014 and presented its credentials to the Hon Victor Dominello, Minister for Citizenship and Communities.
The delegation was led by the Chair of MCC Dr Anthony Pun, OAM and included Raymond Arraj (Secretary-General), William Seung (Vice-Chair) and David Dawson (Vice-Chair).
Despite a heavy and tight schedule in Parliament, Mr Dominello was able to spare some time welcoming the delegation. At the meeting, Dr Pun briefed the Minister about the MCC NSW stating “our organisation has adopted the slogan ‘for a Multicultural NSW’ and as a membership-based organisation, we would collaborate and complement the work of those NGOs which are organisation-based. There are however unmet needs in the community that the MCC is able to address and particularly, outreaching to the West of Sydney and to new & emerging communities.
Dr Pun added: “there has been no voice in the community for some time and the MCC NSW would assist in regenerating a loud and clear voice on issues affecting the community”.
MCC wishes to thank the Minister for his time in meeting with the delegation at Parliament House and this constitutes the beginning of warm and close working relations with the Government in community affairs.
