AmCham Greece Executive Director presenting the future of Greece as an elevated investment destination and AmCham Greece’s constant presence for 89 years to forge a path for the country towards an inclusive and sustainable future.
Elias Spirtounias, Executive Director at American – Hellenic Chamber of Commerce shared his insights into the recent development of the Greek economy and the upcoming opportunities they are capitalizing on. Greece is currently undergoing positive changes to become an attractive #business environment and a desirable #investment destination. Following the global #financialcrisis in 2009, Greek GDP had fallen 25% while unemployment reached 28%.
However, the government of Greece and especially the private sector showed remarkable resilience and managed to turn things around. The strength of the Greek economy was proven during Covid-19 where they managed to secure more than €35bn to support Greek enterprises and rise above the pandemic.
