Vietnamese-born Le Van Hieu will become the first Asian migrant to become the Governor of South Australia in September, according to ABC News.

Hieu is currently deputy governor-a position he has held since 2007.

“Hieu has already demonstrated an outstanding level of service to the community and I have no doubt that he will serve the role with great distinction”, said Premier Jay Weatherill.

Born in 1954 in Quang Tri province, Hieu immigrated to Australia in 1977 and worked as an accountant until he retired in 2009.

He was awarded an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2010.
