Further development of the German-Greek Youth and Expert Exchange is an important political concern. Based on the foundation of a German-Greek Youth Office as stated in the 2013 coalition agreement, the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMDSDJ) is involved in furthering the German-Greek youth exchange in cooperation with its Greek partners. Currently, the ministries responsible in Germany and Greece respectively are developing a joint concept for an increased cooperation that also includes the establishment of a German-Greek Youth Office. IJAB supports the promotion of the German-Greek youth exchange by offering information, networking and partner exchange facilities.
