Tony Abbott: “We’ll Help Greeks to Come to Australia to Work”

Australia’s opposition leader Tony Abbott said in an interview with Neos Kosmos that he will try hard to help Greeks under the age of 30 seeking a Work and Holiday visa that will let them move to Australia for a year.

Abbott stated that he would support the visa program and try to help reach an agreement with the Greek state. “I definitely realize that many Greeks would love to come to Australia in order to work by means of the Work and Holiday Visa due to the financial problems that the country faces,” he said.

He added that, “It is pretty important to give those people the opportunity to contribute in our country, as many thousands of Greek immigrants who live in Australia did.” Unemployment for those under 25 in Greece has hit 54.9 percent as the country suffers a crushing economic crisis that has some 70 percent of the young saying they want to leave their homeland.
