American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce Welcomes Neorion Shipyards Agreement

February 10, 2020

ATHENS – The agreement for the Neorion shipyards and that on the clawback and rebate of pharmaceutical companies are “two very important developments,” the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) said on Monday.

In a statement, AmCham referred to the signing of a preliminary collaboration between Onex Neorion Shipyards and Israel Shipyards Ltd, a strategic collaboration on “joint development of large-scale projects in the shipyard sector, especially the fact the construction part will be exclusively assumed by Onex Shipyards’ Greek facilities.” (The AmChams of Greece, Cyprus and Israel had signed a memorandum of understanding in 2019 for joint actions boosting trade and economy.)

The chamber also welcomed the Joint Ministerial Decision (KYA) on the offsetting of clawback and/or rebates of pharmaceutical companies with investments they carry out, particularly in production, research and clinical studies. The chamber had supported this outcome with proposals and actions that could boost investments for research in Greece, fighting brain drain and boosting the health system and services to Greek patients.


ATHENS – On top of nearly doubled electric bills, gas near $10 a gallon, food taxed at 24 percent and prices rising out of sight, many Greeks now can't afford rents that are soaring even during the easing COVID-19 pandemic.
