Dear Prof. Dr. Resmi KAMBERAJ

Consulate for Albania,

On behalf of the Queensland Intercultural Society (QIS) we are pleased to say thank you to each of you who have attended QIS Peace & Dialogue Iftar Dinner and Award Ceremony at the QLD Parliament House on Wednesday, the 16th of July 2014 and SBS & QIS Media Iftar Dinner.

I would like to thanks to our participants from Federal and State Parliaments, diplomatic corps, Consul Generals, members of media, academia, respected guests from mosques, churches, synagogues, community & multi-faith leaders, special guests and guest speakers. We appreciate you for taking the time and effort to be here. We also thank you for your participation and the sharing your ideas and expertise. We certainly hope that the Iftar Dinner has been all that you expected it to be and that you have taken the opportunity to make new friends and renew old acquaintances and to have discussion and exchange of many experiences, suggestions and opinions with our guests.


We acknowledge we are striving for an ideal situation and we know all things of value do not come easy, however we know that a society needs to work together to make positive strides towards that objective. By society, we mean all members and units, including government agencies, faith groups, schools and cultural organisations. The sought after social harmony and cohesion can only be achieved through dialogue, interaction and continuous collaboration.


I wish all the best for you and your family. I hope we can see you again for our next event.

Once again we would like to thank you for your support with this initiative on the behalf of the QIS and I hope to continue working with you, side by side in promoting a more harmonious society.


Kind Regards,
