For the first time Greece is participating in the European Semester, following the country's successful exit from the financial assistance programme last year.


The Conference presented the recently published European Commission's Country report on Greece and initiated dialogue on some themes including:

  • Greece’s new role in the European Semester
  • Investment challenges and reforms in Greece
  • Creating a business- and innovation-friendly regulatory environment
  • Implementing structural reforms for growth
  • Using digital identity to reduce administrative burdens

The Conference was organised by the European Commission in collaboration with the Foundation for Economic and Industrial Research (IOBE). Staff from the European Commission, the World Bank, OECD and experts from Member states across Europe joined local policy makers, social partners, journalists, think-tanks and academics to discuss these key issues.
