The dinner attracted a strong presence of Councillors from all over the Sydney Metropolitan Area, with four Mayors, three deputy mayors, former Mayors and many new and long standing councillors attending. Initially this was a networking dinner to introduce the local government leaders to the Network and its work within the larger community. The event became a forum of ideas on how the link, between Councils and the youth within the community, could be enhanced. It was agreed that Councils and the AABN could work together to drive issues regarding the youth of Arabic-speaking background. Some Councils already have programs for raising the awareness of youth about local government while others are supporting youth through employment programs. The President of the Australian Arab Business Network, Mr. Radwan Hamdan, explained that the Network is a not-for profit organisation essentially for business referral and support. It strives to support Arabic-speaking youth through scholarships, employment through the Network and mentoring programs where successful and hardworking business people within the community act as role models. “Success in business,” he said, “comes through hard work, no questions asked.” He highlighted the role of the first AABN Annual Business Awards which will encourage young business people of Arabic speaking background who have shown talent and innovation in business, and to bring them into focus throughout the community. The winners will be announced at the AABN Gala dinner in March. Further information can be found at http://www.australianarabbusiness.org.au.
