The three-year strategic partnership between EY Greece and the InvestGR Forum begins with the online 3rd InvestGR Forum 2020: Greece in the Pole Position – 15-16 July and 8-9 October 2020.
The purpose of the strategic partnership is, inter alia, to make the exclusive presentation in Greece of research carried out by EY annually on a global scale, titled: “Attractiveness Survey,” beginning with the 3rd InvestGR Forum 2020.
At the opening session of the 3rd InvestGR Forum 2020: Greece in the Pole Position, on 15 July, EY Greece will present the research findings, “EY Attractiveness Survey: Greece 2020,” on the attractiveness of Greece as an investment destination. The survey is expected to capture, for the first time since the start of the health crisis, the investment community’s views on the country’s strengths and weaknesses as an investment destination.
The research, which is an integral part of the broader EY Attractiveness Survey Europe assessing Europe’s attractiveness as an investment destination, analyzes Greece’s investment performance in recent years. It also records the views of the investment community on the strengths and weaknesses of the country as an investment destination, based on a significant sample of executives from large foreign companies that either already have an investment presence in Greece or are potential investors.
The Managing Partner of EY in Greece, Panagiotis Papazoglou, stated: “We are pleased to accept the proposal of Public Affairs and Networks for our participation in the InvestGR Forum. This event is a valuable platform for an exchange of views between Greek political stakeholders and representatives of foreign companies operating in Greece on the topic of foreign investment. For its part, EY systematically monitors and records the concerns and expectations of the international investment community and has made a number of proposals to improve the attractiveness of Greece as an investment destination. We will be present at the 3rd InvestGR Forum 2020 and will share our experiences and suggestions with the participants.”
Andreas Yannopoulos, founder of the InvestGR Forum, commented: “We are excited about the strategic partnership with EY Greece, a leading company in the field of auditing, consulting, tax and financial advisory services. EY Greece has deep and first-hand knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of Greece as an investment destination, as well as the needs and expectations of foreign companies that have already invested or wish to invest in Greece. I’m sure we’ll have a very successful InvestGR Forum this year.”
