Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Monday again touted Greece as an international investment destination, speaking online with the president of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), Lord Karan Bilimoria, a discussion broadcast live during the annual assembly of one of the UK’s largest business organizations.

Mitsotakis emphasized that Greece in 2021 is an immensely different country, fiscally and in terms of its economic environment, than it was during the previous crisis years.

He also called on the CBI’s more than 19,000 members to look to the present and future instead of the past decade.

“…as Britain is no longer a member of the EU, if you are seeking investments in the European Union – and especially if you’re interested in our part of the world, in southeast Europe and the Middle East – then Greece could become a very attractive destination for British investment inside the EU,” the pro-reform and pro-business Mitsotakis said.

Turning to tourism prospects for 2022, Mitsotakis appeared optimistic, saying the first indications are extremely positive.

Prompted by a question, the center-right Greek premier said the “previous (leftist) government attempted to systematically over-tax the middle class (in Greece) and businesses, in order to create surpluses that it would then distribute mostly based on political criteria. We said this was a wrong policy; that we must ‘enlarge the pie’, and focus on reducing an income inequity”.
