Message for Pakistan Independence Day 2022

Department of Home Affairs

I extend my best wishes to the many members of the Pakistani Australian community who are observing the 75th anniversary of the Independence of Pakistan.

Australia enjoys long-standing and deepening ties with Pakistan and our friendship is strong, thanks in no small part to the contributions that Pakistani Australians continue to make in Australia.

Whether you are born in Australia or have come from overseas and chosen Australia as place to build your future, your experiences and efforts are contributing significantly to the vibrant multicultural tapestry that is modern Australia. We all benefit from the contribution that the Pakistani Australian community are making to building modern Australia.

Australia’s diversity is our greatest strength. Our success as a cohesive and vibrant democracy is built on shared values, through which we enjoy the freedom to express ourselves, respect one another, and rally to support each other in times of need.

I send my warmest regards to you all as you observe this significant occasion.
