Greek Prime Minister to celebrate Orthodox Easter in Australia

·

Happy Protaprilia!! Although we’d love the Greek Prime Minister to visit Australia soon, it’s not happening this Easter.

Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, will celebrate Easter in Australia during his seven day official visit to the country.

This official visit was confirmed on Wednesday by the Office of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

The visit is part of Mitsotakis’ recently announced tour of the Asia Pacific and comes after Mitsotakis accepted an invitation by Mr Morrison.

The Greek Prime Minister’s Office has announced that Mitsotakis will be in Australia on Holy Tuesday, April 19, with the first stop being Canberra, where he will have a private meeting with Mr Morrison.

The Greek Prime Minister will then visit Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, with his trip ending on Tuesday, April 26 when he will depart for Athens.

The full schedule of contacts that Mitsotakis will have in Australia will be officially announced within days.

In Sydney, Mitsotakis will meet with Archbishop Makarios of Australia, NSW Premier, Dominic Perrottet, politicians of Greek origin and of course, leaders of the Greek Community.

The Greeks of Sydney will have the opportunity to welcome Mitsotakis to a purely Greek feast that will take place at Hyde Park in the city centre on Easter Sunday. According to our information, admission to this event will be free.

Australia’s Prime Minister said Mitsotakis will be greatly welcomed by the Greeks of Australia, while underlining the great contribution and influence of Greeks in the country.
