Greece’s Legislative Investment Framework is a key factor in creating an attractive, inviting, and successful environment for the international investment community.

Recently, an important bill of the Ministry of State, "Acceleration and transparency of implementation of Strategic Investments" has been submitted for Parliamentary review and is expected to become legislation soon.

This bill provides for a rapid implementation process of key investments, those that create a substantial number of jobs, develop Greece’s R&D infrastructure, fall within the priority sectors of the Greek government, or are major projects.

The new law abolishes a number of hurdles that have hindered investors in the past and is an important step in creating Greece’s New Investment Era.
