Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs, Vincenzo Amendola, is completing his institutional mission to Australia in Melbourne today, after his visit to Sydney. This morning the Italian high official participated in the Intercomites meeting, where he took the opportunity to highlight “the excellent cooperation between the Embassy, the Consulates and the Comites in Australia, which has made it possible to organise important joint actions, including informative workshops for young Italians residing in the Country on student work visas and on the new Italian immigration.” Mr Amendola was then invited to inaugurate “Per Australia” by Italian writer Alice Pasquini at the Italian Museum.
In the afternoon, Mr Amendola had cordial talks with Telmo Languiller, President of the legislative assembly of the State of Victoria, highlighting the excellent relations between Italy and Australia and focusing on the great contribution of the Italian community to the political, social and economic life of Victoria.
At the end of the day, Mr Amendola met with Rhonda Barro, President of Co.As.It. of Melbourne, and with the president and the members of the “Veneto Club”. During the meeting, he greeted the Italian community highlighting the long-standing friendship between Italy and Australia: “We have followed the same course throughout the years, which has brought us closer together thanks to a common spirit and ideals inspired by a commmon model of democracy, inclusion and multiculturalism.”
