A Census briefing was held in Sydney today (Wednesday, July 5) and Hon Ray Williams, Minister for Multiculturalism spoke to SBS Punjabi on the significance of the recently released Census data.

Mr Williams said "the release of the ABS data is really exciting", as it gives the true picture of multiculturalism in Australia, and especially in NSW. He spoke about the Punjabi community in glowing terms, and reflected on the fact that over 50% of Australia's current population has migrated from five nations - with India being one of the the top 5 source countries.
