WASHINGTON (ANA-MPA/P. Kasfikis) – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Monday called on US investors to add investments to Greece on their financial agenda and noted how optimism is returning to the Greek economy despite global upheavals, in a recorded video message to investors at the 21st Annual Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum titled ‘Greece Is Back’, held in New York City on Monday.
Mitsotakis referred to what he called a fast-track implementation of an economic framework of rapid changes, aiming to improve entrepreneurship and based on social consensus which, he observed, does exist, especially after a favorable shift in public opinion towards investments and reforms. “During the financial crisis, Greeks realized that policies which undermine investments and reforms can only lead to a deadlock,” he stressed.
He then underlined that market optimism for Greece has returned despite a turbulent global economy and said that “consumer confidence in Greece is the highest it has been since 2000, and continues to remain there.” “Market confidence is also the highest since 2007,” he added.
Finally, Premier Mitsotakis praised Capital Link’s forum as a reliable source of information in the business community and concluded by saying that “the time to invest in Greece is now.”
