The Irish Australian Chamber of Commerce (IACC) announced the publication of their White Paper on “Strategies to enhance Diaspora engagement in Australia”.
The Whitepaper was based on the findings of a sample of a 100 people from the Irish community in Australia who participated in an online survey about their views. The survey and subsequent report is the first in what is hoped to become an regular series of reports.
Of the respondents, 72% saw their right to vote in Irish elections as an important part of maintaining links. The respondents also identified strongly as Irish with 93% identifying themselves as Irish Citizens living in Australia. They also were interested in knowing about opportunities to return Ireland and in how to engage with Ireland.
