Stimulating business in Greece as signs for optimism emerge – 138 businesses look for partnerships Published on: 12/03/2013, Last update: 15/03/2013
Together with the Hellenic Ministry of Development and Ministry of Tourism we will focus mainly on areas identified as the backbone of the Greek economy. This B2B conference is a great opportunity to strengthen the links between companies from Greece and other European countries and to exploit the underused business potential that currently exists in the European economy
To support SMEs and the restart of the real economy in Greece, VP Tajani travelled with Daniel Calleja Crespo, Enterprise and Industry DG and SME Envoy to Athens, accompanied by representatives of more than 138 European companies.
The EU companies will meet and talk with 413 Greek SME owners and managers about collaborations and trade partnerships, investment, and joint undertakings.
Central to their visit will be a business to business networking event, to reinforce partnerships and help the EU's industry and SMEs fully exploit the potential for commercial relations with Greece. The aim is to promote business opportunities (B2B) for partnerships and investment in Greece in the following areas:
- Agri-Food/Food Processing
- Construction and Materials and Key Enabling Technologies
- Information Communications Technology
- Pharmaceuticals/Health Sciences
Vice President Tajani is keen to help Greek SMEs overcome current difficulties, realise their potential and contribute to the recovery of the Greek economy, especially given the unused potential of SMEs at this time.
