“The Contribution of Young People of Diaspora to Australia Impressive”

March 27, 2019

MELBOURNE – Climate change and the coordination of actions by Greek Chambers of Commerce abroad dominated the discussions that took place under the Nostos III programme in Melbourne.

For the first time, Greek, Cypriot and Egyptian chambers of commerce located abroad, and in this case in Australia, will be placed under the umbrella of a coordinating body so that expatriate entrepreneurs can work more productively in the interests of the economy of the states where they live as well as their country of origin, Deputy Foreign Minister Terens Quick stressed in a statement.

“The open debate between important business people of Melbourne and Australia in general, with the participation of presidents and representatives of Greek chambers of commerce, was extremely encouraging. We began the first substantial recording of how business activity could be stepped up to and from Australia to countries of origin, with a key pillar being the involvement of our businesses abroad,” Quick said at a press conference after the end of the two-day sessions of Nostos III programme.

He also pointed out that the chambers of Greece and Cyprus in Australia have already started their cooperation and announced that it was agreed to include the Arab-Australian Chamber, based in Melbourne, a chamber representing Egypt and more than 30 countries in the Arab world, in this “alliance”.


ATHENS - A regulation in an omnibus bill will allow repatriated Greeks from Albania and the former Soviet Union to receive full national pensions, Labor and Social Protection Minister Kostis Hatzidakis said during a discussion in Greek Parliament on Tuesday.
