Greek-Australian Nikos Balagiannis - one of the richest residents of Australia, according to the annual list published in the BRW financial journal - has paid for airline tickets for over 100 of his low-income compatriots, so they may visit Greece for the first and only time in their lives, after many "tough" decades working in Australia. He has also financially assisted a considerable number of suffering Greeks, educational institutions, Greek festivals and various charitable organisations.
Balagiannis told the Athens News Agency that he arrived in Australia in 1965 at the age of 17, with only five cents to call his sister, who lived in Melbourne, and a small suitcase. He began to work in the hotel and property business, and now owns eight hotels in Sydney, as well as a casino on the Greek island of Syros.
