Ms JODI McKAY ( Strathfield ) ( 17:32 ): I bring to the attention of the House the tremendous work of the Korean Society of Sydney and in particular its outgoing president and executive. The Korean Society of Sydney was established in 1968 and provides a support network for the thousands of Australian-Koreans and community groups in Sydney and New South Wales. Over the past year the society has been led by President Harry Paik. I acknowledge his dedication and relentless commitment to the Korean‑Australian community. As Harry steps down from the position, it is appropriate that this House also thanks him for his leadership. Harry is a friend to many in this Parliament and will be missed by members on both sides of the House.
I also congratulate Vice-President Jack Bahng and Vice-President Philip Shin, and committee members Hong Jo Ko, Danny Kim, Sue Young Kim, Kyung Ok Park, Kwiang Youn Park, Sung Duk Park, Dong Yun Son, Jin Wook Soon, Charles Song, Youn Kyung Lee, Dong Myung You, Tae Kyong Jung, John Hur, In Yun Son and Song Hee Hwang.
