Greek Community president Bill Papastergiadis, expressed his satisfaction at the positive response of the Australian prime minister towards the Community. “We are very pleased that Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will attend the opening of the 29th Greek Lonsdale Festival that our Community is organizing this year on February 27 and 28. The prime minister’s positive response to our invitation proves that the festival is recognized as one of the most successful and biggest festivals not just among the people of the diaspora, but also among Australians. It is very rare for the Australian Prime Minister and the Prime Minister of Victoria to attend an event at the same time, ” he said.
