Athens Investment Summit

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

In no small part, this is due to a fundamental inability of successive governments to foster investments and a climate suitable to private sector economic growth.

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