Bridgewater hosts African-Australian Communities talks with Federal Minister
by Brighton Council
Federal Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs, the Hon Andrew Giles MP,met in early February with members of Tasmania’s growing community of African -Australians, including Tasmanian of the Year John Kamara. This was a very positive and engaging meeting where Mr Kamara and other community members were able to discuss issues facing fellow residents directly with Minister Giles.
Discussion included dealing with visas more efficiently, along with training more young Tasmanians via TAFE and other educational pathways to help with skills shortages in the wider Brighton community.
