On March 28th the University of Houston's Center for International and Comparative Studies and the UH-Faculty Senate organized a panel discussion on the Eurozone Debt Crisis and the Greek Experience at the University of Houston main campus. The event was kindly sponsored by the UH-Office of Global Strategies and Studies. Below is the link of the video of the entire event. This video includes an interview of the Minister of Finance of Greece, Professor Yianis Varoufakis. The interview was followed by a Q&A session where the Minister addressed some important questions concerning the architecture of the common currency and the role of economies of South Europe within the Eurozone.
This year's event combined a commemorative educational happening, dances performed by the Olympian dancers and a greeting by his Eminence Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver and a greeting from the Consul General of Greece Mr. Papanikolaou. State Representative of District 25, Honorable Dennis Bonnen sent us a copy of the House resolution recognizing March 25th 2015 as the Greek Independence Day. A unique contribution for the success of this event was offered by the multi-talented Choir of the Annunciation Hellenic Orthodox Cathedral who not only masterfully sang the national anthems of Greece and of the USA but also participated in the inspiring reading of various excerpts from memoirs and speeches of key figures of the Greek War of Independence.
