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.
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis says Greece has embarked on a sustained boom that will surprise analysts with its durability and strength, and his message to the investment community is clear: “Don’t miss the chance to be part of a successful growth story.”
Adonis Georgiadis, Minister of Development and Investments, says now is the time to invest in Greece as the government is determined to implement substantial reforms, cut taxes further, and tackle bureaucracy in a bid to create an investment-friendly environment.
