President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. takes the honor of personally thanking the Filipino community in Australia for their sacrifices and contributions to the Philippines as he meets them in a gathering in Melbourne on March 4, 2024. According to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), there are about 408,000 Filipinos in Australia, making them the 5th largest immigrant community in the country. Most are employed as crafts and related trade workers, professional service and sales workers, skilled agriculture, forestry and fishery workers, technicians, associate professionals and managers. Another aspect of the community’s presence in Australia is the increasing number of Filipino students seeking higher education. In 2022, there are about 17,825 international students in Australia from the Philippines, ranking as the top 8th source and accounting for 3% of the total population of international students. The DFA emphasizes that in the whole of Australia, large numbers of the Filipino population reside in the States of New South Wales and Victoria. Today’s program venue, the City of Melbourne, is the capital city of Victoria and Australia’s second largest city. According to the Philippine Consulate General in Melbourne, the 2021 census showed that the number of residents in Victoria with Filipino ancestry (at least one parent born in the Philippines) stood at 95,186. Majority of Filipinos living in the State of Victoria are based in the Western suburbs of Melbourne. Around 73% of Philippines-born people in Victoria speak Filipino and/or Tagalog at home, while 21% speak English.
