NEWS On 6 August the President of Malta, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, greeted a group of Maltese migrants from Australia during a visit to the President’s Palace in San Anton organised by the Emigrant’s Commission.
President Coleiro Preca said she wanted to give the Maltese-Australian emigrants the chance to enjoy their heritage. It was important, she said, to maintain contact between the Maltese in Malta and the Maltese in Australia because of the great distance between the two countries.
During the meeting President Coleiro Preca announced that she is planning to lead a Presidential delegation from Malta to visit Australia next year.
Following the visit by the Maltese-Australian group, the President tweeted “Met a group of Maltese nationals residing in #Australia. Proud of this nation! #malta”.
