Greece – France Strengthen Economic Ties

French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire, Greek Finance Minister Christos Staikouras, and Minister of Investments Adonis Georgiadis.

A joint statement laying out the foundations of a renewed Greek-French economic partnership was signed in Paris, today, by Greece’s Finance Minister Christos Staikouras, Investments & Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis, and French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire.

The two sides agreed to strengthen and intensify cooperation with a focus on investments and projects that will contribute to the transition to the green economy.

The deal renews the strong ties between the two countries as demonstrated by the more than 100 French subsidiaries active in energy, agri-food, infrastructure, transport, and tourism, currently operating in Greece, and employing some 10,000 people.

The ministers, in Paris today accompanying Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis who is on a two-day official visit, participated in a round of meetings arranged by the French-Greek Chamber of Commerce and Industry as part of the “Greece a Strategic Factor in Southeastern Europe: Trust is Reborn” forum.

Attending the same event, Greek Tourism Minister Harry Theoharis said the aim of the visit was to introduce investors to the wide array of opportunities in Greece.

“There was a positive response and great investment interest from a number of businesses that see our country as a great opportunity. Our aim is to highlight those opportunities,” said Theoharis, highlighting the importance of France as a source market.
