ATHENS – The president of the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce Nikolaos Bakatselos pointed out on Tuesday in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) that agreements for more US investments in Thessaloniki and in Greece in general are expected to be signed in the near future, adding that the prospects for Greek exports to the US in the coming years are extremely favorable.
He also said that the messages he now receives from foreign investors is that the Greek economy is being re-established and is a destination of confidence in an expanded investment agenda. Referring specifically to energy, he underlined that the Biden government shows a strong dynamic of interconnection and cooperation with Greece in this field.
Asked under what conditions we will see in Thessaloniki and Greece more US investments in the digital economy and if some deals are close to signing, Bakatselos replied: "Thessaloniki and the wider region of Northern Greece has developed into an important digital hub in Southeastern Europe, with many growth prospects, having been effectively included in the US investment map. The bilateral agreement in the fields of Science and Technology, signed in Thessaloniki in September, has played an important role in this direction. In the near future we will see other deals, which are a product of coordinated and constant mobility of the Greek government, but also a result of the reforms made, which have formed a very positive climate for the country in the international markets."
