On a visit to Tasmania, the President of the World Lithuanian Community (WLC), Regina Narušienė, and her husband, Bernardas Narušis, stopped briefly in Sydney. On March 21, 2012 she met up with the members of the Committee of the Australian Lithuanian Community of Sydney (ALC–Sydney Inc) and the Australian representative of the magazine “Pasaulio Lietuvis” (“The World Lithuanian”), published by the World Lithuanian Community.
Regina Narušienė was very interested to find out about Lithuanians in Australia, their history, activities and achievements. She enquired about the problems faced by Australian Lithuanians, problems of Lithuanian diplomatic presence in Australia, questions of dual citizenship and other issues of concern. She shared with ALC-Sydney Inc Committee information about the work of WLC in Lithuania and elsewhere in the world.
