Mentre la campagna elettorale si avvicina alla fine, il partito laburista ha fatto un altro annuncio, questa volta dal cuore di Western Sydney.

La portavoce dell'opposizione per le comunicazioni, Michelle Rowland, ha fatto l'annuncio riguardante il trasferimento della sede centrale della SBS a Bankstown, nella zona occidentale della città.

“I am delighted to announce that if elected a Shorten Labor government will conduct a feasibility study into the relocation of the SBS from its current location to western Sydney.”

Secondo il partito laburista lo studio di fattibilità è stimato a circa mezzo milione di dollari e si aggiunge a un precedente impegno che fornirà 20 milioni di dollari alla SBS per la produzione di contenuti radiotelevisivi australiani e fornirà 2 milioni di dollari per aggiornare le risorse dell’emittente per fornire descrizioni audio per gli australiani non vedenti e ipovedenti.

”So what we will be looking at in this feasibility study is, is this a good idea, does it stack up financially, does it stack up economically, so that's the important first step to take, and we would also envisage that as part of that feasibility study we would be looking at some competitive tension between the many different councils in Western Sydney. ”

La popolazione di Western Sydney proviene da oltre 170 paesi e parla più di 100 lingue.

I consigli comunali locali hanno già dato il loro sostegno alla proposta, uno di questi è quello della City of Canterbury-Bankstown, secondo il quale il trasferimento aprirebbe una serie di opportunità per la zona.

Il sindaco, Khal Asfour, ha dichiarato che il potenziale trasferimento nel cuore multiculturale di Sydney allineerebbe maggiormente la SBS al suo statuto e a gran parte del suo pubblico.

”I can tell you as the mayor, we will be putting our hand up to have SBS here in Canterbury Bankstown, and we're ready to accommodate the studios, the jobs and the economic input and output that it will bring to the city of Canterbury Bankstown and to Western Sydney generally. ”

Michelle Rowland ha aggiunto che il trasferimento del quartier generale della SBS permetterebbe all’emittente di espandere lo sviluppo di contenuti e fornire aree ad uso della comunità.

”This is something that has been talked about for a long time, it is a Labor government that will examine its feasibility, and if that feasibility proves positive bring it to fruition for the betterment of all SBS consumers, for all Australians, and in particular, being reflective of the wonderful multicultural community that we have here in Australia and in particularly in Western Sydney.”

È stato il presidente dell’associazione “Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue”, Christopher Brown, a suggerire la mossa al leader dell'opposizione federale Bill Shorten l'anno scorso.

Brown ha detto che l'annuncio del partito laburista era atteso da tempo e che può dare risultati positivi in termini sociali, economici e creativi per la regione.

”How appropriate that the multicultural broadcaster be bedded somewhere in the middle of multicultural western Sydney, and I can guarantee as Khal Asfour just said, cities across the west will be lining up, bidding hard, coming to a future minister of communications of government to make their case of how they can house SBS. ”

As the election campaign nears its end, Labor has made another announcement, this time, from the heart of Western Sydney.

Opposition spokeswoman for communications  Michelle Rowland made the announcement regarding SBS' Sydney headquarters from Bankstown in Sydney's west.

I am delighted to announce that if elected a Shorten Labor government will conduct a feasibility study into the relocation of the SBS from its current location to western Sydney.

Labor has said the feasibility study is estimated to cost around half a million dollars, and is in addition to a previous commitment that it will provide 20-million dollars to SBS for Australian content and provide 2-million dollars to SBS to upgrade systems to provide audio description for blind and low vision Australians.

So what we will be looking at in this feasibility study is, is this a good idea, does it stack up financially, does it stack up economically, so that's the important first step to take, and we would also envisage that as part of that feasibility study we would be looking at some competitive tension between the many different councils in Western Sydney.

The population of Western Sydney comes from more than 170 countries and speaks more than 100 languages.

Local councils have already thrown their support behind the proposal, including The City of Canterbury Bankstown, saying the move would open up a range of opportunities for the region.

Mayor Khal Asfour says the potential relocation to the heart of multicultural Sydney would closer align SBS to its charter and a large part of the broadcaster's demographic.

I can tell you as the mayor, we will be putting our hand up to have SBS here in Canterbury Bankstown, and we're ready to accommodate the studios, the jobs and the economic input and output that it will bring to the city of Canterbury Bankstown and to Western Sydney generally.

Michelle Rowland says the relocation of SBS' headquarters would allow it to expand its content development, and provide areas for community use.

This is something that has been talked about for a long time, it is a Labor government that will examine its feasibility, and if that feasibility proves positive bring it to fruition for the betterment of all SBS consumers, for all Australians, and in particular, being reflective of the wonderful multicultural community that we have here in Australia and in particularly in Western Sydney.

Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue chairman Christopher Brown put the suggestion to Federal Opposition Leader Bill Shorten last year.

Mr Brown says Labor's announcement is long overdue, and can deliver positive social, economic and creative outcomes for the region.

How appropriate that the multicultural broadcaster be bedded somewhere in the middle of multicultural western Sydney, and I can guarantee as Khal Asfour just said, cities across the west will be lining up, bidding hard, coming to a future minister of communications of government to make their case of how they can house SBS.
