Small and medium-sized enterprises are a key growth driver in the Greek and European economies. They stimulate entrepreneurship, play an important role in boosting employment, competitiveness and innovation, promote economic growth, and contribute to social stability.
SMEs in Greece comprise 99% of all businesses and contribute to the economic growth of the country, as they employ more than 55% of the country’s workforce and contribute around 41% of the country’s added value.
NBG’s Business Banking meets the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises in a holistic way by applying a customer-focused and outward-looking service model with expert relationship managers who propose the appropriate financing and growth programs, solutions, and tools that suit the needs of each individual business.
