Greece Is at the Crossroads of Two Energy Corridors, Says Energy Minister Stathakis to ANA
Monday, 12 December 2016
Εnergy and Environment Minister Giorgos Stathakis is visiting New York to present investment opportunities in the energy sector during the "Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum." Stathakis was in a 10-day tour in Rome, Brussels and Jerusalem and now is in New York. The aim of these international contacts is to create the conditions so that Greece can become an energy hub in the region, while attracting investments in environmental and energy infrastructure. "Greece is at the crossroads of two energy corridors," Stathakis explained to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA). "One runs in the East Mediterranean and the second one runs through Southeast Europe. Greece is at the centre of both of them and so there are the conditions to become an energy hub, which will help the security of supply to Europe through the diversification of energy supply routes. This is what we are working on."
