Bringing together expats from Cyprus, Greece, and Egypt, the Nostos II program took place in London on Wednesday and Thursday.
Fotis Fotiou, the Cypriot presidential commissioner for human rights and for Cypriots overseas, described the meetings and events held in London as part of the Nostos II program as “very very productive.”

Nostos aims at bringing together the diasporas of Cyprus, Greece, and Egypt. This year’s program, Nostos II, followed in the footsteps of the initial Nostos meetings which were held in Alexandria, Egypt last May. This year’s aim was to explore the collaboration of the three countries’ expatriates in health and tourism.
