We want to help new immigrants integrate smoothly into Australian society and we’ll aim to have more meetings in western Sydney, where many of these new communities are based.” For established communities Mr Doukas said that “attention will be given to services for the elderly and to strengthen the teaching of languages. Help will also be given to recent arrivals in Australia from countries like Greece, Italy, Spain and other European countries who are experiencing financial difficulties”.
