PANZ President “Mr Naveed Hamid” and Principle Advisor “Mr Farrukh Gul Qaisarani” attended an event hosted by the Minister of Finance “Hon Grant Robertson” and Minister for Ethnic Communities “Hon Jenny Salesa.”
PANZ had very productive discussions with both Ministers and matters of mutual cooperation were discussed. It was pleasing to note that PANZ is getting a lot of positive attention in the wider public sector, especially within the ethnic communities.
PANZ was assured by the Ethnic Minister that there is new funding available from the Ministry of Ethnic Affairs which PANZ may apply for. PANZ has already applied for the community funding managed by the local city council.
