“A society that cannot manage its many cultures cannot amount to much because it is, by definition, a society that cannot harness the energy of its constituents” – Joseph Assaf

From Sidney Myer who arrived in Australia in 1899 as a ‘penniless Russian migrant’, Henry Ngai of ABC Tissues, a winner of the recent Ethnic Business Awards, to Bing Lee – a Chinese migrant whose start-up business Bing Lee Electronics has grown to 40 plus stores in NSW – these are but a few of the many migrant stories that awe, inspire and embody human grit and achievement.
