“In response to your letter – invitation to participate, exercising our advisory and consultative role in the public consultation for Greek Language Education for Hellenes Abroad, I am submitting the proposals as planned by the three major regions of Hellenism, those of the U.S.A, Far East & Oceania and Central and South America”, states Mr. Tamvakis in his formal letter addressed to Ms. Gennimata, while thanking her for her initiatives and substantial and efficient collaboration with SAE and Diaspora Organizations right from first day of assuming her duties.
“We are at your disposal and we will continue our collaboration on the subsequent phases, until the final voting of the Bill on Greek Language Education, particularly in the implementation phase, since the Greek Language and the Education of Greeks Abroad are issues of prime importance for all of us. This is our first priority and we ensure that most of our actions revolve around this axis”, states the President of SAE.
