16th Annual Tax Forum

16th Annual Tax Forum

Το 16ο ετήσιο TaxForum 2020 του Ελληνο-Αμερικανικού Εμπορικού Επιμελητηρίου αποτελεί τον κορυφαίο θεσμό για τα φορολογικά θέματα στην Ελλάδα, που συγκεντρώνει τις πλέον διακεκριμένες προσωπικότητες τόσο από την Ελλάδα όσο και διεθνώς, με ολοκληρωμένη γνώση και αξιόπιστες θέσεις για τη διαμόρφωση της φορολογικής πολιτικής.

Φέτος, οι συνθήκες, έχουν δημιουργήσει νέα δεδομένα ως προς τη διαμόρφωση του format του συνεδρίου οδηγώντας το Επιμελητήριο στην υιοθέτηση ενός ψηφιακού μοντέλου διεξαγωγής του. Ακόμα και σε αυτό το περιβάλλον αποδεικνύεται ότι το TaxForum αποτελεί κεντρικό σημείο αναφοράς τόσο σε σχέση με την επιλογή στους θεματικούς του άξονες όσο και με τη σύνθεση των ομιλητών που τιμούν το Επιμελητήριο με τη συμμετοχή τους σε αυτό.

Με αυτ�� σαν κεντρική αρχή και άξονα και σε συνδυασμό και με τα άκρως απαραίτητα άλματα σε καινοτομίες ψηφιοποίησης στη φορολογία, το Forum υπογραμμίζει τις προϋποθέσεις που μπορούν να εξασφαλίσουν τα σωστά αντανακλαστικά ευέλικτης και αποτελεσματικής δράσης στην περίοδο κρίσης που διανύουμε, αλλά και απέναντι στις πολλαπλές προκλήσεις των καιρών για την αποτελεσματική διαχείριση, προστασία και αποδοτικότητα της φορολογικής βάσης.

Τα αποτελέσματα της Έρευνας του Ελληνο-Αμερικανικού Εμπορικού Επιμελητηρίου για την Εκπαίδευση

Παρουσίαση και Συζήτηση των Αποτελεσμάτων της Έρευνας του Ελληνο-Αμερικανικού Εμπορικού Επιμελητηρίου για την Εκπαίδευση

Το Ελληνο-Αμερικανικό Εμπορικό Επιμελητήριο διοργανώνει μια άκρως επίκαιρη ψηφιακή εκδήλωση, που αφορά στην παρουσίαση και συζήτηση των αποτελεσμάτων έρευνας για την εκπαίδευση, την οποία ετοίμασε και παρουσιάζει η Επιτροπή Εκπαίδευσης-Καινοτομίας και Επιχειρηματικότητας του Επιμελητηρίου. Το Επιμελητήριο ξεκινά μια συζήτηση με σκοπό τη διερεύνηση, καταγραφή και ανάδειξη των επιμορφωτικών αναγκών των εκπαιδευτικών ιδρυμάτων αλλά και την υποστήριξη του σχεδιασμού προγραμμάτων και εργαλείων επιμόρφωσης που στοχεύουν στην κάλυψη νέων αναγκών. Το Επιμελητήριο πιστεύει ακράδαντα πως η πραγματική επένδυση στην παιδεία ξεκινά από την ανάγκη να ξεπεράσουμε τα στερεότυπα και την αντίληψη ότι αυτό που χρειάζεται είναι άλλη μία «μεταρρύθμιση». Η συζήτηση με αφορμή την κρίση του κορονοϊού για την εξ’ αποστάσεως εκπαίδευση στα σχολεία και στα ακαδημαϊκά ιδρύματα με τη χρήση των νέων τεχνολογιών είναι μόνο ένα από τα πολλά θέματα μιας μεγάλης και σημαντικής συζήτησης για το μέλλον της παιδείας. Στην πραγματικότητα απηχούν υπαρκτά ερωτήματα σε μια μεταβατική περίοδο, ερωτήματα που δεν αφορούν μόνο έκτακτες συνθήκες αλλά και το πώς αντιλαμβανόμαστε τη μορφή, το περιεχόμενο και τη στοχοθεσία του εκπαιδευτικού συστήματος.

ENGLISH HealthWorld 2020 16/09/2020

Undeniably, the COVID-19 pandemic has put immense strain on national healthcare systems around the world and has brought unprecedented complications to the world economy, which are expected to have complex and lasting consequences. Healthcare systems were severely tested; among them Greece’s national healthcare system, whose long-standing structural problems were augmented by the health emergency and needed to be urgently addressed to meet the pressing needs that arose. Now, following the first phase of the crisis, we are tentatively making our way toward a new normality, urged to keep ourselves—and others—healthy and safe by implementing a series of new regulations and safety protocols in our daily lives and work as authorities develop and adopt structured approaches to protect the public.

But could this state of emergency also pose an opportunity to overcome the systemic problems and chronic issues in our healthcare system? Can we build upon our newfound knowledge and incentive to shape a more sustainable, efficient and inclusive healthcare system? And what role can technology play to this end?

AmCham’s HealthWorld conference is one of the country’s foremost forums for constructive discussion on the most apposite, interesting and challenging issues concerning the healthcare sector today. In 2020, HealthWorld will provide a platform to explore, evaluate and address key issues including the impact of the pandemic on healthcare systems around the world; the necessary reforms to enhance functionality and efficiency; sustainability in healthcare; healthcare spending adjustments; and the role of technology and the digitization of hospitals. Distinguished speakers from Greece and abroad will be invited to examine these key issues from a variety of perspectives, providing a broad spectrum of expertise and experience, and sparking an exchange of insight and ideas.

HealthWorld 2020: Designing the New Healthcare Landscape: Spotting the Unexpected will take place on September 15-16, 2020, and will be a hybrid conference with limited physical presence at the Athenaeum Intercontinental Hotel in Athens, Greece, and extended virtual participation online.

Southeast Europe Energy Forum 2020

The American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the Hellenic Association for Energy Economics, the Atlantic Council and the U.S Chamber of Commerce, is holding the Southeast Europe Energy Forum on Friday, September 11, 2020 at the MET Hotel in Thessaloniki, Greece. The Forum will be held in hybrid format on the day prior to the state address of Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis and the official opening of Thessaloniki Helexpo Forum that has replaced the 2020 Thessaloniki International Fair.

In today’s ever more competitive world, and with the growing need for more alternative resources, European energy policies can only be successful if the European Union works closely with all its partners around the world. In the same context, global geopolitical and market developments over the last years highlighted SE Europe countries as important players of EU energy strategy. EU energy policy is centered on three key objectives: security of supply, sustainability, and competitiveness. To reach these goals, the EU follows a strategy to create a resilient Energy Union with a forward-looking climate policy that requires more of regional cross-border approach. The integration and development of regional markets in the SE European countries is key to cost-efficient investments given that market integration will boost security of supply in the SE European countries and provide the right signals to investors.

On top of these, the East Med Act agreement created a solid frame of cooperation between Greece, Cyprus, and Israel with the support of the USA that will contribute further to energy diversification and independence of Europe.

The Southeast Europe Energy Forum will bring together key policy makers, thought leaders, regulators, top market players, financiers, academics and experts to present and discuss unique insights and observations on all up-to-date topics in the dynamic energy field in Greece and the wider SE European region.

The Geopolitical Role of Greece as a Pillar of Stability and Cooperation

The Geopolitical Role of Greece as a Pillar of Stability and Cooperation: Serving as a Deterrent Force in the Eastern Mediterranean

Greece is unquestionably a stabilizing force and valuable ally in the Eastern Mediterranean. Locatedat a crossroads of geopolitical significance between continents, cultures and spheres of influence, the country is uniquely positioned to serve as a deterrent force and a pillar of stability and cooperation in a troubled region where upholding democracy and freedom is often the exception rather than the norm.

So how can Greece, with its track record of using all means at its disposal to effectively manage and overcome challenges, make the most of the opportunities afforded it by its geostrategic position? How can it efficiently maintain agile and combat-ready armed forces able to be rapidly deployed to respond to any threats? How can the country’s defense industry contribute to these efforts? And how can Greece effectively position itself as an economically attractive destination for strategic investment?

The need to develop and pursue a highly comprehensive policy is now more important than ever.

Over time, real estate has become one of the most important sources of revenue for the state budget. The relevant taxes are theoretically easy and very collectible. Real estate ownership tax is certainly known in all European countries. In Greece, however, the corresponding taxation, as implemented, led to unprecedented distortions and injustices, while the adaptation to European data was particularly sharp. At a time when the Greek economy is trying to change page after years of continuing recession, the real estate market could profit from a realistic reform of taxation, starting primarily with the harmonization of objective values with the corresponding commercial as well as with the institutionalization of new tax incentives for individuals and companies to invest, directly or indirectly, into real estate (via property acquisitions, property development, cash contributions to investment schemes, and others), thus contributing decisively to the sustainable development of our country.

Empowering the contemporary social responsibility of business

Adapt & Repurpose: What is your message?
Adaptability is a key business virtue, especially in the pandemic period. Adapting the corporate message to the new reality is an essential goal of corporate affairs. Today's corporate message must align the corporate purpose with the social effort of collective consciousness and solidarity. Corporate purpose must also drive the continuous adaptation of the corporate message with critical sustainability issues for Greece, such as employment and employability, climate change, circular economy, gender equality, sustainable funding and digital transformation.

AmChamGR’s Corporate Responsibility Committee is initiating a discussion on how business needs to adapt and repurpose the corporate message, in line with responsible and responsive overall strategy and action. Join us to hear perspectives from our speakers on how empowering the company’s message for purpose confirms the relevance of corporate choices to the societal environment, thus enhancing reliability towards consumers and other stakeholders.
