The Forum aims to showcase how companies and institutions, through the implementation of investment and social programs, contribute substantially to the recovery of the Greek economy and to the prosperity of the society as a whole. Emphasis will be given on investment and planning of infrastructure projects and partnerships in the Energy and Tourism sectors, as these are two of the most important pillars for economic growth, whilst examples of leading companies operating with a view to sustainable development and to the continuous support of improving the lives of citizens. In the middle of the current social and economic crisis, it will be highlighted that the development and prosperity of the country is directly linked to the growth and successful course of businesses, and investment in innovation, extroversion and social responsibility are necessary conditions for such growth and success.


The Annual Forum will highlight the business sectors that have the potential to become levers for the growth of the economy, the factors that contributed to the successful course of companies abroad and will highlight the support mechanisms that contribute to the international networking of healthy Greek enterprises, whilst it will also host the view of investors as well as important key players of the Greek economy. The Forum will present an analysis of tools and actions that lead to the development of entrepreneurship both in a domestic and international level, as well as important corporate responsibility programs that have a positive impact on Greek economy and society.


In a separately reserved space, the Forum offers the opportunity to over 100 NGOs from all over Greece, to present their work, their activities and initiatives by exhibiting their own material to the participants.
