Australia’s new Ambassador to Greece, Alison Duncan, began official duties at the Australian Embassy in Athens on Friday, July 7.

Ms Duncan appeared enthusiastic about her new role and expressed her eagerness to strengthen bilateral relations and promote ties between Greece and Australia.

“I am happy to take up my duties as Ambassador of Australia to Greece, Bulgaria and Romania! It is a high honour and I look forward to starting this new diplomatic journey,” she said in a post on Twitter.
