The government adjusts the structure of the multicultural sector

In order to strengthen the construction of Victoria's multicultural community, the state government will adjust the structure and responsibilities of the multicultural department based on the recommendations of the audit report.

The Victorian government has added 7400 million yuan in funding for multicultural and social harmony projects in this year’s budget, demonstrating its firm determination to build a prosperous, diverse and harmonious society.According to the 2014 Comptroller-General’s "Immigration, Refugee and Asylum Seeker Service Utilization Report", the Victorian Multicultural Council (VMC) and the Department of Multicultural and Citizen Affairs (OMAC) overlapping responsibilities and ambiguity in the allocation of responsibilities will be improved .

This adjustment will eliminate the duplication of responsibilities between the two departments, make the division of labor clearer, highlight the influential decision-making role of the Victorian Multicultural Commission, simplify the administrative approval process for government funding, and strengthen the Department of Multicultural and Citizen Affairs (OMAC) project effectiveness.The adjusted Multicultural Committee (VMC) will continue to conduct community consultations, surveys and research, and provide the government with advice on services and funding.The Department of Multicultural and Citizen Affairs (OMAC) will provide overall government policy recommendations, coordinate multicultural affairs between the federal and state governments, and strengthen communication on multicultural affairs between Victorian government departments.
