Since the 1980s, the nationals have celebrated the Refugee Week even as the same takes place simultaneously with the World Refugee Day that falls on June 20.
As per the Australian Minister for Immigration & Citizenship, since World War II, 800 000 refugees and humanitarian candidates have gained admission into the country, marking the striking diversity of the refugee population across the nation. He added that immigrants make an astonishing contribution to the national life even as the Refugee Week is an opportunity to accept the difficulties the refugees come across, and to celebrate whatever they carry along with them to the national society.
Brendan O’Connor, the immigration minister, further said that Down Under has an excellent history as a refugee resettlement nation, besides a supportive global associate, even as the same is displayed by the successful settlement of 800 000 refugee & humanitarian migrants, via the program meant for them.
