After reaching a low point in mid-2020 owing to covid-19, the investment landscape in Greece and Cyprus has recently seen a significant improvement. While Covid-19 was a massive shock, it also presented an opportunity to fundamentally rethink many of the assumptions that investors take for granted, from what founders look like to the types of investments that make sense in a dynamic, tech-driven global economy. Now is the time to build back better, and this process begins with a sweeping reassessment of a status quo that was already disappearing when the pandemic hit.

While the pandemic posed unprecedented challenges for the Greek and Cypriot economies, we are now in a situation where both countries are back on track to attract foreign investment to enhance their competitiveness and growth and to strengthen business ties with the UK.

Speakers include Cabinet Ministers, leaders from business and finance who will take part in a stimulating dialogue with institutional investors to brainstorm, openly debate and put forward proposals on what challenges and opportunities lie ahead. With an enviable reputation for excellence and editorial integrity, we aim to deliver, yet again, a first class programme featuring leading thinkers and cutting edge insights.
