Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Monday emphasised the rapid progress made by the Greek economy over the last two years and the many opportunities it now offered for investors, in a message via webcast at the 16th annual Capital Link 'Invest in Greece' Forum held here on Monday.
"During the course of the last two years, Greece has managed to consolidate its economy in an unprecedently rapid and efficient way," he said in a speech entitled "A New Era of Opportunity for Greece," while emphasising the help given by the United States in this direction.
"We are already witnessing the fruits of our joint efforts and international investors have already entered the Greek market," he noted, underlining the multiple investment opportunities throughout the main sectors of Greece's economy.
Praising the annual Capital Link forum as a key event for promoting potential investments to the US public and for boosting the already strong, historic ties between the two countries, he noted that close cooperation between Greece and the US could now be "more constructive and mutually profitable" than ever, during these difficult times. "This year's Capital Link investment forum is of the utmost importance, given the successful reforms that have already been carried out to kickstart the Greek economy," he said, adding that signs of this economic recovery had already started to emerge.
