4th International Conference | The Greek economy: Looking into the future

The Conference

During the past seven years, the Economic Chamber of Greece has had the honor of organizing three international conferences with great economic and scientific interest. 

This year, a new event was organized with the aim of hosting a fruitful discussion that shed light on the future of the country’s economy following a very turbulent decade for Greece and unprecedent instability internationally. A list of prominent speakers with international and local exposure discussed topics of significant interest for the economy, such as the country’s investment grade, the role of the banking system in the transition of the Greek economy, the investment prospects that arise in the future and the path to digital tranformation, as we are going through the 4th industrial revolution. 

The conference entitled «The Greek Economy: Looking into the future», took place on Tuesday, March 28th 2023, at Megaron the Athens Concert Hall.
