“Prime Minister Turnbull has managed a powerful non-discriminatory immigration program serving to make Australia a land of a chance for peoples from all around the globe,” the Policy Exchange said.
“He has also emphasised the importance of immigrants in Australia integrating successfully into the country’s mainstream – by acknowledging and respecting the predominant values of Australian life and society.”
The thinktank also stated Turnbull’s “tension” with conservatives in the Liberal Party over issues such as renewable energy.
The prime minister is in Europe for the G20 summit.
