Greece At the Forefront of New Business & Investment Opportunities – Excellent Forum Timing

Greece has made a dynamic comeback in the global capital markets and the global investment community but this is the first step. Looking ahead, despite the challenges stemming from the pandemic, there is a new reality and potential in Greece today. Modernization and Investments” are at the heart of the “Greece 2.0” program, the largest plan developed in the modern history of the county aiming to change the economy model, transforming it into a competitive and extroverted one, with a digital and efficient state. The approximately EUR 31 billion that will be disbursed by the Recovery and Resilience Facility - in addition to the funds from the European Development Programs included in the new EU budget for the period 2021-2027, can be the foundation for Greece to attract the significant and additional foreign investments that the country needs.

The timing for this Forum is excellent, as it will highlight the significant progress made so far and the potential that lies (or that can be unlocked) ahead. It will highlight Greece’s competitive advantages and focus on business and investment opportunities across the major sectors of the economy

Top Delegation of Government & Business Leaders Addressing the Who-Is-Who of Wall Street & Main Street

Every year, a delegation of senior government officials, led by the Prime Minister, and a group of private sector business leaders update a global audience on the reforms, developments and outlook of the Greek economy and each of the main sectors highlighting trends, challenges and opportunities. Furthermore, a group of international investors and financiers share their insight on Greece as a Business and Investment Destination.
