The “21st Annual Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum” – “Greece is Back” took place in New York City on Monday, December 9, 2019. This is an International Summit about Greece in New York organized in cooperation with the New York Stock Exchange and major global investment banks.

With a 21-year track record of success, the Forum traditionally attracts well over 1,000 senior executives – government and business leaders from Greece, Europe and the United States, and top executives from the investment, financial and business communities.

Given the renewed interest of the business and investment community for Greece, this year’s forum attracted record attendance; it allows the international investment community to familiarize itself with the priorities of the new government and highlights the new opportunities in Greece and its attractiveness as an investment and business destination.

GREECE IS BACK!

Foreign investments are of critical significance for the re-launching of the economy. With a proven track record and wide acceptance within the business, financial and investment communities, the Capital Link
