    06/10/2002 20:33:53

    A two-day conference on ''European citizens of the world'' was held in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, at the initiative of the Greek foreign ministry and had a preparatory character with the purpose of shaping basic elements of a European Union policy on overseas Europeans.

    Speaking at a press conference at the end of the conference, Deputy Foreign Minister Yiannis Mangriotis said a wide spectrum of issues was discussed such as social, economic, tax, educational and cultural concerning overseas Europeans.

    Just as Greeks living abroad do, other Europeans living abroad are facing problems regarding the preservation of their cultural heritage, language, music and national identity.
