Rapid Growth Points to a Bumper Year for Greek Exports in 2019, Exporters Say

Strong growth of Greek exports to record levels is expected in 2019, according to forecasts made by Greek exporters' associations on the basis of export performance in 2018. In a statement to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA), the president of the Panhellenic Exporters' Association Christina Sakellaridis noted that the figures for exports up to December 2018 indicated that Greece was heading for a historic high: "In 2019, therefore, unfettered - though not fully - from the restrictions of the memorandums (capital controls etc), there should be a dynamic increase in our exports to new markets and new products with a new record being a visible target," she said. Greek exporters have also learned from their mistakes and acquired knowhow and learned the best practices of other countries, enlisting technology and modernising customs offices, Sakellaridis added. “ We need the support of the state to design a national outward-oriented strategy with the consensus of all political forces in the country, because the state establishes the legal framework in which we operate,” she said, noting that only investments and export activity can create more and better-paid jobs.
