Emirates Greeks website has been developed with the aim of providing a forum focused on the needs of the Greek and Cypriot communities in the United Arab Emirates and neighbouring countries.
We hope to provide useful information, advice and support to the growing Greek and Greek-speaking population in the region.
Readers are encouraged to contribute with suggestions and feedback.
Emirates Greeks started as a Yahoo group in 2003. This website was introduced in 2007.
Hrach Kalsahakian, founder and editor, is an active supporter of the community with many years of involvement. Through his previous occupation at the Greek Embassy in Abu Dhabi as administrative assistant (2000-2005) and as marketing manager at the Cyprus Tourism Organisation's regional office in Dubai (2005-2013), he is in an excellent position to provide news, information and advice to the readers. He is able to leverage his knowledge of Greece, Cyprus and the Middle East, to forge close ties with the community as a whole.
