  • [01] Doukas promotes investments

    Deputy Foreign Minister Petros Doukas was the guest of honour at a reception in London hosted by the Hellenic Bankers Association-UK, attended by senior-ranking officials of London's major investment firms.

    Discussions with the Greek minister focused on Greece's foreign policy and economy, and prospects for promoting more investments in Greece.

    With respect to foreign investments in Greece, Doukas said that a change of the institutional framework was being advanced in Greece so as to create a "business-friendly" environment, to render the country a magnet for foreign investments.

    In that framework, he continued, the ability is being given to shipping companies and foreign companies wishing to activate themselves in the wider region of the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean, to establish themselves in Greece as offshore companies.

    Chairman of the Association's Executive Committee, Michail Zekkos, stressed that the London investors were an important tool of development of the Greek economy, adding that the Hellenic Bankers Association of the UK was reaffirming its role as a link between the financial center of London and the Greek political, economic and business community.

    The Hellenic Bankers Association-UK was formed in 1994 in order to promote a closer co-operation among Bankers and Financial Professionals, of Hellenic origin, based in the United Kingdom.
