Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed his satisfaction with the work being done in Davos and specifically at the Greek House. The Prime Minister was welcomed by the president and founder of Greek House, Irini Vantarakis, and the Director of the Greek House, Konstantinos Foutzopoulos. As the Prime Minister said, the last time he was in Davos was in 2020 when – as he said – we were trying to convince the international investment community that Greece has indeed turned the page.
 
“I can tell you with certainty that three years later and having already completed an extensive circle of contacts in Davos that the image of the country has changed drastically,” said Kyriakos Mitsotakis, adding that “Greece is an attractive investment destination, through the country’s innovation in policies implemented at many levels as well as the important role it now plays within the European solidity”
 
The prime minister pointed out that at the same time Greece is recognized as a pole of geopolitical stability in a difficult region, pointing out that there is a great interest in how this effort will continue as 2023 is an election year.
 
Earlier this week, the Greek Prime Minister stated that Greece and Turkey will not go to war and that the two countries can make efforts to reduce tensions in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean.
 
“We will not go to war with Turkey,” Kyriakos Mitsotakis told CNN journalist Fareed Zakaria at an event on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos.
 
He emphasized that “we should be able to sit down with Turkey as reasonable adults and discuss the issue of the continental shelf and sea zones in the Aegean. We did it successfully with Italy and Egypt, [and] with Albania,” Greek PM continued.
