Georges River Council’s response to the ABC Four Corners Program- Interference which aired last night Monday, 8 April 2019 at 8.30pm.

Georges River Council’s spokesperson said today:

In 2018, the Major Events Advisory Committee acted outside its authority and directed that the sponsorship by Vision China Times be cancelled.

When the whole Council became aware of this it immediately took action to reinstate the sponsorship by Vision China Times for the 2019 Lunar Year event.

Council’s position is that sponsorship for events must occur within the framework of our adopted sponsorship policy and free of any external influence.
