Our View: Good Growth
CEO, Enterprise Greece
Greece’s economy is growing strongly: at a 13.4% year-on-year rate, once more exceeding market expectations and marking one of the fastest growth rates in Europe. Robust tourism, an increase in private investment and record exports all contributed to this year’s rebound.
But as the world economy recovers from the shock of the coronavirus pandemic, Greece is also showing the way towards future growth. In the last few years, environmental, social and governance criteria have become a significant component in business decision making worldwide.
Greece is deeply committed to green, sustainable, and inclusive development. This is manifest in the country’s new climate law, the Greek Green Deal, the Greece 2.0 program – which earmarks more than €5 billion for education, healthcare and social solidarity – and the gov.gr platform that now offers more than 1,000 e-government services online.
Greece is realizing its full potential in this new age of clean energy and digital technology, positioning the country to compete in the global economy. Therein lies our future prosperity – both for our citizens and for our businesses.
