  • [01] AHEPA awards president, prime minister and parliament president

    The leadership of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) awarded prizes to President of the Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and Parliament President Anna Benaki-Psarouda during a banquet they hosted at a central Athens hotel on Monday evening.

    President Papoulias received the "Hellenism Prize", Premier Karamanlis the "Socrates Prize" while Parliament President Benaki-Psarouda received the "Pericles Prize".

    In a short speech, President Papoulias thanked the AHEPA delegation, headed by AHEPA Supreme President Gus J. James, II, and referred to the excellent cooperation he had with the Association at the time when he was Greece's foreign minister in matters of national interest.

    Premier Karamanlis thanked the one hundred-strong delegation for its presence in Greece and its support on issues of great importance for the nation, while Benaki-Psarouda highlighted the Greek-American association's contribution in promoting Greece's national issues.

    U.S. Ambassador to Athens Charles Ries addressed the AHEPA banquet, praising the Greek-Americans' struggle against racism.

    The banquet was organised within the framework of the annual Hellenic-American Forum 2006, which this year convened in Athens and is aiming at strengthening Greek-American relations.

    Also present at the banquet was Economy and Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis who addressed the event. A message by Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos was also read out.
