Regarding the English-language programs of Greek universities, Mr Chrysoulakis stressed that the main goal is to attract third or fourth generation Greeks who may not speak the language sufficiently and who, until recently, did not have the opportunity to study in their place of origin.

Mr Chrysoulakis concluded and said the goal of the Greek government is to strengthen the role of the Greek diaspora in the country and announced hosting programs for the summer of 2022, which will enable young Greeks to visit their country of origin and get to know each other.

For their part, the Greek students from Perth said they were excited and willing to contribute with all their might to this effort.
