Congratulations to everyone involved in making Diverse Tassie what it is and on reaching
your 1st anniversary.
Tasmania has a rich culturally diverse community, with people from 177 different countries,
speaking 159 different languages calling our Island State home.
To support this growing population, we are committed to a fully inclusive, harmonious and
respectful multicultural island, which values and respects the diversity, and recognises the
strengths that people of all cultures, languages and faiths from every corner of the world
bring to Tasmania.
Now more than ever, welcoming and treating people with kindness and respect is of the
utmost importance, as we all work together to manage the impacts of the coronavirus.
Again, congratulations and I look forward to marking your 2nd anniversary with you next.
