Greek PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis goes to Tokyo with full agenda

Kyriakos Mitsotakis PM
The Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis left for Tokyo, Japan, right after the conclusion of the confidence vote at the Hellenic Parliament, aiming to develop and improve bilateral relations and to consolidate collaboration between the two nations. It is the first time in 17 years that a Greek Prime Minister visits Japan.
 
Japan is highly rated by Greece as the world’s third largest economy that plays an important role in the region and is also a member of the G7. 
 
The visit comes at a time when Japan is seeking rapprochement with NATO and the EU, and Greece is seeking to serve as a bridge for Japan with both the Eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans, with a focus on energy. 
 
Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his wife will be received by Crown Prince Akishino. 
 
The Greek PM will present the investment opportunities opening up in Greece and will make two detailed presentations on the Greek economy to the Japanese Business Federation (KEIDANREN) and the JETRO Export Business Association.
 
He is accompanied by Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis and Deputy Minister of Economic Diplomacy Kostas Fragogiannis, as well as a 20-member business delegation, including representatives of Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) and Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry (EBEA).
