Ambassador Mallias expounds on priorities of the Greek economy

Wednesday, 25 January 2006

Ambassador of Greece to the United States, Alexandros Mallias, described the post-Olympic Games image of Greece and the priorities of the economy and the country's foreign policy, during a luncheon hosted by the group of representatives of major businesses "Potomac Exchange" which is headquartered in Washington.

Ambassador Mallias spoke on the opportunities offered by Greece as a bridge of investments in the broader region of Southeast Europe which, including Turkey, represents a market of 120 million consumers.

Mallias expounded on Greece’s Balkan policy which is based on the economic development of the region with investments of 10 billion dollars and its accession to the Euroatlantic institutions, as well as the heritage of the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004, particularly to the infrastructure works and to the increase of tourism to a safe and modern country.

Attending the luncheon were representatives of the companies Bechtel, Boeing, General Electric, Halliburton, 3M, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Daimler Chrysler, Washington Convention & Tourism Corporation, Merrill Lynch and Mitsubishi.
