This afternoon I'd like to celebrate an outstanding Australian, Dr Anh Nguyen, a medical practitioner and also president of the Western Australian Vietnamese community. Last week, Dr Anh, as he is affectionately known, celebrated 40 years in Australia. He arrived in Adelaide in 1981, having fled the chaos that was falling across Vietnam with the arrival of the communists in South Vietnam. I want to extend my deepest appreciation for the outstanding leadership that Dr Anh has shown the Vietnamese community over decades in Western Australia. We applaud him, and of course we applaud the Vietnamese community in WA for the wonderful contribution they make.
