British Magazine Monocle Praises Greece

November 26, 2020

ATHENS — The British magazine Monocle in its print edition for December 2020 and January 2021 released on Thursday included Greece among the countries of the world with the greatest soft power. Among other things, it noted that, despite the pandemic, Greece remains on the path of economic recovery and pointed out that it has mobilized active diplomacy to effectively address the Turkish provocation.

The list includes countries such as Germany, South Korea, France, Japan, Taiwan, Switzerland, New Zealand, Sweden and Canada. Greece is thus ranked ninth in the world and the positive remarks concern not only the economy but also the Greek-Turkish issue, the successful way in which it managed the pandemic and the reversal of the brain drain. The title dedicated to Greece is indicative.

In fact, the islands of the country are recorded as a landmark of its soft power, despite the impact of the coronavirus on tourism.


ATHENS - Their politicians are fighting it out and bringing tensions to a near-conflict level, but everything is just hunky-dory between shipowners as Turkey's maritime masters made Greece's counterparts the guest of honor at the Istship International Shipping Conference in Constantinople.
