TSRA hosts ministerial visit

The Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA) recently hosted Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Minister for Indigenous Australians Linda Burney and Queensland Senator Nita Green on Waiben (Thursday Island) and Ngurupai (Horn Island) on 18-19 August 2022.

TSRA Chairperson Napau Pedro Stephen AM said the ministerial visit would strengthen partnerships between the Torres Strait and the Australian Government.

“The visit brought together national and local leadership on the topic of the Indigenous Voice and to share perspectives from the Torres Strait,” Mr Stephen said.

“Key topics included aspirations for climate change resilience and adaptation and Community Development Programme, such as economic and job opportunities for the region.”

The TSRA connected the national leaders with diverse representatives from the region, including Traditional Owners, Elders and young people, community organisations and business owners, artists, TSRA Board and all levels of government.

“We are ready for this new era of working together to continue advocating and carrying the voices of island communities from the Torres Strait to Canberra,” he said.
