Athens Investment Summit

Now in its sixth year of financial crisis, Greece finds itself at one of the most difficult junctures in its history.

Despite the negative headlines and volatile political environment, investments in Greece are gathering speed. The Tsipras government is gradually implementing its privatisation commitments.
