Black Sea Economic Cooperation

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)  On June 25, the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organisation (BSEC) commemorated its 16th anniversary.

Greece’s significant role to BSEC is being constantly promoted through the operation of the Thessaloniki based Black Sea Trade and Development Bank, the International Center for Black Sea Studies, headquartered in Athens, as well as Greece’s recent presidency at BSEC’s Parliamentary Assembly.

The cafes and lounges around Lonsdale street have the feel of Athens. But before the wave of immigration made Melbourne one of the world’s biggest ‘Greek’ cities, the two nations had forged a brotherhood in blood. It came from April 1941, with the brave but ill-fated efforts of a poorly organised British-Anzac force to defend Greece from Nazi invasion.” According to the reporter, the Greek community honoured on Saturday “the contribution of the Hellenes to the Australian war effort in the 20th century,” in the Melbourne Town Hall, while ten young Victorians will soon visit Greece as winners of the Premier’s Spirit of Anzac prize
