Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, Konstantinos Vlasis, to address Greek Australians online


The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs for Diaspora Greeks, Konstantinos Vlasis, will be addressing Greek Australians in a special online dialogue series on Wednesday, July 7 at 5pm.

Everyone is invited to attend on behalf of Paul Nicolaou, Director, Business Leaders Council, Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Christos Karras, the Consul General of Greece in Sydney.

This year’s celebration of 200 years since the beginning of the Greek Revolution of 1821 was an opportunity for Greek people to reflect on the achievements of the past, but also to envision the Greece of the future.

Following in the footsteps of history, Greece is working with the Greeks of the Diaspora in this great moment for the Greek Nation.

In fact, during his online talk, the Deputy Minister will share with attendees the Greek government’s intention to establish the celebration of the Day of the Greek Diaspora in order to recognise and honour, on an annual basis, the historical role and valuable contribution of the diaspora in our country.
