  • Leigh Sales: With me now is the Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull. Welcome again.

  • Well I welcome everybody and it’s wonderful to be here with you again, Will on your birthday as I’ve noted several times. Never enough, but here at the Trevallyn Power Station. Hydro Tasmania is the largest provider of hydroelectric power in Australia. Larger, produces more hydro power than Snowy Hydro. It is a very big system and its importance has become greater as the energy market has evolved. What we're seeing today is more renewable energy. We're seeing more distributed energy.

  • The Turnbull and Hodgman Governments will begin expanding the Tasmanian Hydro System to provide affordable, reliable electricity as we transition to a lower emissions future.

  • The Commonwealth, Tasmania and Launceston City Council have signed an historic City Deal to create jobs, boost wages and drive a strong economic future for the North.

  • Prime Minister: Good Morning.  We are the most successful multicultural society in the world. We are an immigration nation. We've been built by millions of people who have come here from every corner of the world. 

  • Australia is an immigration nation. We are the most successful multicultural society in the world. More than 130,000 people from around 210 countries are invited to become Australian citizens each year. We welcome the contribution, opportunities and energy they bring to our community.
