Key areas of interest include technology, innovation, research & development, industry and renewable energy. 

Smyrlis went on to add that the government was taking a series of actions, including the digitalization of public services and operations, doing away with red tape, investing in innovation and outwardness which will further improve the investor environment and the promotion of plans and strengthen export activity establishing Greece as an attractive investor option.

A total of 19 companies made up the Greek delegation participating in this year’s Expo 2020 Dubai, including Copelouzos Group, Ellaktor, GEK Terna, TIF Helexpo TITAN Cement Group, and Lambda Development behind The Ellinikon project.

“Through a set of radical reforms, we are creating a climate of stability and trust, not only in the domestic but also in the international business community, a fact that is confirmed by the significant increase in foreign direct investment in Greece in the last two and a half years,” said Deputy Development & Investments Minister Nikos Papathanasis.
