The Official Inauguration of the
Building Facilities of the International Foundation of Alexander the Great
in Greece was completed on July 23, 1999.
The "Alexander the Great Institute" is being created to the honour of the great Macedonian King of Greece.
The building took its present shape
after generous donations and contributions received from members of the
Foundation, the Pan-Macedonian Association of U.S.A. and Canada, and from
different Ministries of the Greek Government. Notwithstanding, we have to
acknowledge that we would not have reached this historic moment if we did
not have the continuous support and guidance from Professor and
Archaeologist Dimitrios Pantermalis - who is also the Foundation's
Executive Director in Greece.
