Refugee farm workers from Bhutan a winning asset for Tasmanian vineyard

Tasmania is now home to about 2,000 refugees from Bhutan, a tiny country between India and China with a population just twice that of Tasmania. In the 1990s, Bhutan forced most of its ethnic Lhotshampa population to leave and the exodus saw more than 100,000 Bhutanese refugees living in Nepalese camps seeking asylum. After 19 long years living in one of these refugee camps, Khadga Thapa was one of the first to migrate, in 2010.
