Today’s Position From Finding to Building the Chinese Australian Voice In April 2011, the Hon Penny Wong MP opened the first Chinese Community Council of Australia (CCCA) national conference in Sydney—themed Finding the Chinese Australian Voice. Various individuals and organisations gathered to clarify the community’s role in a multicultural Australia. The Chinese Australian community leaders and participants from many states came together to identify the issues, develop partnerships and strengthen CCCA friendship and cooperation. The first conference’s result was agreeing to break the mould. The second CCCA’s Moving On! conference continues to progress this community agreement made in 2011. It is devoted to sharing informed knowledge and strengthening the Chinese Australian collaboration and capacity to support and help realise : 1.The CCCA Resolve for building the Chinese Australian Voice for all Chinese Australian . 2.The CCCA Vision for empowering Chinese Australians to be today’s and tomorrow’s leaders in inspiring, promoting and advancing the Chinese community’s interests and constitutional liberty to establish a rightful place in Australian society.

CHINESE COMMUNITY COUNCIL of AUSTRALIA VICTORIAN CHAPTER
Dear Friends, We have great pleasure in inviting you, to join us at this National Conference intended for all Chinese Australians who share the following concerns: - The Chinese community in Australia is the biggest, the richest, with the most brain power, but is the least organized "as compared to other established ethnic communities" (acoeec like the Jewish, Greek, Italian, or even the Vietnamese and Indian, just to name the obvious), which operate and coordinate their activities at the national level. - The Chinese community in Australia have no voice, thus no clout (acoeec) because for decades their leaders continued to come up with "excuses" not to work with each others, instead of finding compelling rationale to work together, especially at the national level to advocate for their aspiration and vision for the next 10, 15 -20 years in Australia. - The Chinese community in Australia should be hanging their head in shame, as they are now 900,000 strong (4.03% of Australian population) when compare to the Jewish (0.5%), who produced two Governors General, one Chief Justice of Australia, one Commander in Chief (Sir Monash) (...the list goes on..), yet there is not even a single Chinese judge at the magistrate or county court level. - The Chinese community in Australia is the biggest block of tax payers, yet they allow themselves to be short-changed (acoeec) when it come to the provision of the whole range of settlement, social welfare services, grants and funding from all level of government, thus depriving themselves of the opportunity to advocate and manage their own needy ethnospecific services (acoeec). - The Chinese community in Australia's well-being and integration is still precarious after more than 160 years of settlement and contribution, due to the continuing demonization of China/Chinese by the power to be in Australia and this could have unsavoury repercussions if the trade relations with China turns for the worse with resulting economic downturn in Australia when people start looking for scapegoat. If you can identify with any of the above then this conference is for you. Unfortunately the venue can only hold 200 participants (and similar numbers for Conference Dinner) so please book early. The Conference will be officially open by Sen. the Hon. Kate Lundy, Federal

3rd Aug 2012 CCCAV Media Release
No More a Community without Profile: The Chinese Australian community is resolved to building its public voice
CCCAV launched a media release event on the 1st Aug, 2012, in the Parliament House. Over 30 media representatives and other guests, including community leaders, attended the event, which finished later after planned schedule.
Presentation Highlights: The President of the Victorian Chapter of the Chinese Community Council of Australia (CCCAV), Dr Stanley Chiang, opened the event. He introduced the Victorian Chapter and explained its role in delivering the second national conference in Melbourne. Dr Chiang highlighted that many Chinese Australians are realising the need for change, especially erasing the public notion that they are part of Chinese Australian (CA) community that has no public profile. He revealed that the conference will continue explaining the transforming journeys of Chinese Australian settlers and will propose a call to action for building the CA public voice. Doing nothing will mean being the largest and oldest Asian migrant group without a public profile, which exposes every Chinese Australian to risks that can compromise their civil rights and social equity as the Chinese Australian population continues to grow. Dr Chiang invited the press representatives to attend the conference to understand the underlying details and follow-up actions that will be revealed in the Call to Action presentation on the second/last day of the conference. MP Hong Lim, Chair of CCCAV Advisory Committee, also explained the “business case” for the need to build the CA voice. He shared the latest census statistic facts of the Chinese Australian community and explained that other established migrant communities, such as the Jewish, Greek, Italian and even newer ones like the small Arabic community, are so better supported by governments and ironically the CA community is not. In matters of public service access and equity, such as access to funded community welfare workers, MP Hong Lim said the CA community is very short-changed and for a very long time. One contributing reason is that the CA community did not and still do not publically voice their issues and concerns, misleading other Australians and governments to think that all Chinese Australians are affluent, self-reliant and have no social issues as a community. Therefore, they are perceived not to need welfare and community development support. Another reason is the Chinese Diaspora and the long-standing inability of different groups to come together as one collective Chinese Australian community to voice their common and different interests, viewpoints and concerns in public forums. MP Hong Lim reminded the audience that in the era of the Asian Century (the emerging new phase of globalisation), the CA community needs to resolve their inhibiting barriers and must realise the need for change. The urgency for change is NOW, if they are to be better supported in their community development and be ready to lead and contribute to Australia’s globalisation in the Asian Century. CCCAV is resolved to catalysing the community’s coming of age and change to be more engaging and publically vocal in Australian society. Dr. Stanley Chiang and MP Hong Lim stressed the uniqueness of the conference, that:
It has the participation of two federal ministers in the conference - Senator Hon Kate Lundy, Minister for Multicultural Affairs who will be officially opening the Conference on behalf of the Prime minister, and the Minister for Trade, Dr Craig Emerson who will be the Special Guest speaker at the conference dinner. The conference is a first precedent in Australia, supporting its non-English speaking senior attendees with real-time translation into Cantonese and Mandarin.
They remind the media that the conference will be on at 9 am, Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 August on the 11th Floor of the Victoria University City Campus, 300 Flinders Street, Melbourne.
Dr. Stanley Chiang and MP Hong Lim personally thank Mrs. Cina Choi, Chair of the Nam Poon Soon Society, for being the Conference's Ruby Sponsor with her donation of $5000

The organisers had to turn away last minute registrations - the event attracted seven times more registered participants than the first conference in Sydney last year. The first day presented and discussed viewpoints of the community’s settlement experiences, pains and successes, civil right movements of Chinese communities overseas, cultural philosophies of foreign land settlement, and ideas for moving forward. The small number of highly engaging generation Y participants said that their community issues and aspirations are different and need different approaches, not necessary always from the viewpoints of an older generation. Some participants expressed their desires for asking for an apology from the Australian Government for past discrimination against the early Chinese settlers in the 1800s and early 1990s, while others canvassed for getting a formal Government recognition of the past to recent contributions that early Chinese settlers had and today’s citizens have made to the development of Australia. During the second day, speakers shared insights of the emerging, growing and often hidden social problems affecting the community and lacking support services, which concern caring for the aged; mental illness, domestic violence, acculturation; lacking community involvement in public engagement and advocacy activities. The last “Call to Action speech” opened new transforming insights of how the community can move on through strategic collaboration projects. Building the Chinese Australian voice is no longer a regular talkfest activity, but is about creating a new propensity for collaborating and developing strategic capabilities. The strategic capabilities do not just close the Chinese Diaspora mentality and address social issues, but are also for supporting and advancing Australia in the Asian Century. The audience strongly commemorated the new and doable directions for moving on. There was unanimous support for future strategic collaboration projects that will: 1. 2. 3. 4.
Be executed professionally, including guided by good corporate governance Take Chinese Australian advocacy to the next and more professional level; Increase Chinese perspectives in Australian history and school curriculum learning; Openly acknowledge and resolve the community’s hidden service access and equity issues in areas of aged care, mental illness, domestic violence, acculturation and unemployment issues; 5. Increase engagement with young Chinese Australians to understand and address their different interests and concerns; 6. Develop advance leadership training and mentoring programs in industry and government sectors; 7. Create a sustainable knowledge management repository for supporting the community’s intergeneration information creation, storage and sharing, and continuous learning.
During the open forum discussions, participants expressed their interpretations of and support for the “Call to Action” directions, including support for older Chinese Australians to share their wisdom, value adding ideas and networks for moving on. Future community workshops will follow to plan and progress these moving on themes into action projects. Many participants had expressed interests to be involved in these future events.

Diaspora identity of a Chinese Malaysian at the National Chinese Conference The Chinese Community Council of Australia (CCCA) held its second National Conference at Victoria University, Melbourne on the 19th and 20th of August 2012. But how many Malaysians would you think you can find during a National Chinese Conference in Australia? Surprisingly, a large proportion of the attendees were in fact Malaysians, mostly middle age, not just attending but also speaking and actively being involved at the National Conference. In fact, much of the committee, including the President of the CCCA, had a Malaysian background. “I don’t really know why there are so many Malaysians involved here but I guess Chinese from Malaysia are more outspoken and less afraid of losing face. That’s why they are more willing to speak out”, said Miss Marion Lau, People of the Ambassador Australia. When asked what ethnic identity Miss Marion Lau would identify herself as, she said: “I always say I am a Chinese with a Malaysian background. I am multicultural as I have the original Chinese heritage and Malaysian as well and I am now in Australia! (…) I was brought up in Malaysia and there’s definitely Malay influence in me”.

Dr. Y.S. Yow, an Australian author from Perth, said that the identity of an ethnic Chinese is a complex one in today’s world but it is crucial to distinguish nationality and ethnicity. In this context, ‘Chinese’ is referred to as an ethnic rather than a national identity. When asked whether he would call himself a Chinese or a Chinese Malaysian, he said: “I will call myself as an Australian as we need to move on,” said the 63-year-old academic, with a slight Malaysian accent. The National Conference of CCCA, titled “Moving On”, was attended by over 200 people and was aimed at striving for equality for the Chinese community and acceptance into mainstream society in Australia.
