Greece’s new National Development Plan will be delivered by the end of September, says Minister of Development and Investments Adonis Georgiadis. Set to be a lever for the country’s economic diversification and digitisation, the consolidation of micro-enterprises, and the attraction of green investments, the plan is the key to unlocking an estimated €32 billion earmarked for Greece through the EU Recovery Fund.
A €612 million investment plan is “absolutely necessary” for Greece’s largest port to maintain its attractiveness and comparative advantage, says Yu Zenggang, BoD Chairman of the Piraeus Port Authority, adding that the Port of Piraeus can take further advantage of its geostrategic position to become the first European port after the Suez Canal that bridges all available transport modes.
Greece’s most outward looking industry is set for a major transformation, says Yiannis Plakiotakis, Greece’s Minister of Maritime Affairs and Insular Policy, from a new flag gain policy and the upgrading of maritime education across to the privatisation of strategic infrastructure assets, “we want to change everything.”
Qiyue Zhang, China’s Ambassador to Greece, says shared values, a joint desire for far-reaching cooperation, and Greece’s strategic location at the centre of Asia and Europe have been key to relations between both countries reaching their all-time high; meanwhile, the Mitsotakis government’s pro-investment and pro-development reforms mean now is the time to invest in Greece, with “anything and everything” being possible.
Slated as one of Greece’s top five strategic projects, TIF-Helexpo’s masterplan foresees the completion of a new exhibition and conference centre in 2026, says the organisation’s President Anastasios Tzikas, while the 85th Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), honouring Germany, is set to break the 300,000-visitor barrier.
