NSW liberals commit to support Vietnamese cultural celebrations

17 March 2023

Vietnamese communities across NSW will be supported to host cultural events and festivals by a re-elected Perrottet Liberal Government.

Member for East Hills, Wendy Lindsay, said the electorate is so diverse and the Vietnamese community is an integral part of it.

“It is only the Perrottet Liberal Government that continues to invest in local communities and contribute to cultural celebrations making East Hills and NSW a wonderful place to live.” Ms Lindsay said.

Minister for Multiculturalism Mark Coure said in the next term of government, the NSW Liberals will invest $150,000 over four years to help Vietnamese communities celebrate their culture.

“We have an incredibly strong Vietnamese community here in NSW, which helps liven our streets with events and festivals,” Mr Coure said.

“These events are incredibly important in strengthening our multicultural society, helping break down barriers and fostering harmony.”

Mr Coure said $37,500 a year for four years would be made available to the Vietnamese community to host events, including the annual Tết or Lunar New Year festival.

“This will continue to build on the $150,000 we have invested into the Vietnamese community over the past four years,” Mr Coure said.
