WASHINGTON, DC – September 22, 2023 – For the first time, 17 of the top national and regional Greek-American organizations came together to meet with and honor the Prime Minister of Greece Kyriakos Mitsotakis.  On September 20, Prime Minister Mitsotakis hosted a working lunch with two representatives of each of the 17 organizations that co-hosted a reception in his honor earlier in the week, which he was unable to attend due to the catastrophic flooding in Greece.

For over one hour the Prime Minister and these leaders held an in-depth discussion on issues of importance to Greece and the Greek-American community.
