Five Greek real estate companies participated in the national stand at the LPS Shanghai 2018 show, which drew more than 12,000 visitors and 200 exhibitors from more than 35 countries this year. At the Greek kiosk Enterprise Greece executives, along with representatives from the participating companies, presented the investment opportunities in the Greek property market and the country’s highly-attractive Golden Visa Program, including in a special two-hour workshop dedicated to Greece.
