An International Summit On Greece in New York Featuring Top US Investors, Global Investment Banks & Institutions and the Greek Government

18οAnnual Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum

Extroversion and direct communication with the global financial, business and investment community are necessary in order to attract foreign investments and put the Greek economy back to a growth trajectory.  In this context, for the 18th year in a row, the Capital Annual Invest in Greece Forum will take place in New York City on Monday December 12, 2016.

Conferences organized in Greece address mainly a local audience that is usually aware of the domestic situation.  As international investors are not based in Greece, presenting Greece as an investment destination must be done where investors reside and decisions are made. Although there are numerous investment Conferences organized in Greece, there are only a few organized abroad which raise awareness of Greece as an investment destination.

The Annual Capital Link Forum is the only high level International Forum focusing on Investing in Greece taking place in New York. It has 18-year track record of success gathering the elite of the financial and investment communities, as well business and government leaders from the United States and Greece.

The Forum is held every year irrespective of political changes and economic conditions in Greece and has been established as the main platform through which U.S. investors are informed of the current developments and outlook of the Greek economy and the investments and business opportunities. It provides the point of view of the government and the private sector, as well as of domestic and international investors.

The Ambassador of Greece to the USA, Hon. Haris Lalacos will provide opening remarks for the Forum which is organized by Capital Link in cooperation with the New York Stock Exchange and with the support of major global banks, featuring this year:
