Select Permanent Committee on Hellenes Abroad
The Parliament establishes a Select Permanent Committee on Hellenes Abroad consisting of 30 Greek MPs. The Select Committee keeps track and follows up on problems and issues that Hellenes 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 Hellenes Abroad promotes and improves relations between Parliament and Hellenes all over the word, coordinates Parliament activities with those of the World Council of Hellenes Abroad, elaborates on issues regarding Hellenes Abroad and looks for solutions while fostering close working relations with members of foreign legislatures who are of Greek descent.
On issues about Hellenes Abroad, Parliament cooperates with associations of Greeks abroad, the General Secretariat for Hellenes Abroad as well as SAE (World Council of Hellenes Abroad).
