Int'l Relations : Int'l Parliamentary Diplomacy & Activities : Greeks Abroad

Select Permanent Committee on Greeks Abroad

The Parliament establishes a Select Permanent Committee on Greeks Abroad consisting of 30 Greek MPs. The Select Committee keeps track and follows up on problems and issues that Greeks abroad face, helps preserve philhellenism and the Greek language- mostly for the benefit of youth, promotes Greek culture and national causes in cooperation with and through the support of Greeks Abroad and participates in a series of events that various Organizations representing Greeks Abroad host.

The ad hoc Standing Committee on Greeks Abroad promotes and improves relations between Parliament and Greeks all over the word, coordinates Parliament activities with those of the World Council of Greeks Abroad, elaborates on issues regarding Greeks Abroad and looks for solutions while fostering close working relations with members of foreign legislatures who are of Greek descent.

On issues about Greeks Abroad, Parliament cooperates with associations of Greeks abroad, the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad as well as SAE (World Council of Greeks Abroad).
