EMBCA Presents Hellenic Energy Independence Forum- Part 2 on March 28

NEW YORK – The East Mediterranean Business Culture Alliance (EMBCA) presents the Hellenic Energy Independence Forum- Part 2 Panel Discussion on Sunday, March 28 at 2 PM EST / 11 AM PST / 9 PM Athens EEST on YouTube.

The panel for this event will be introduced by Lou Katsos, EMBCA's President/Founder, and moderated by Konstantine Drougos, the Managing Director of Argo Marketing and EMBCA Vice President.

The distinguished panel will include Energy Policy Expert and EastMed Specialist and Adviser to the Greek Minister of Energy Constantinos Papalucas, Former CEO of PPC Dr. Manolis Panagiotakis, Former President & CEO at Hellenic Hydrocarbon Resources Management S.A. Dr. Yiannis Bassias, Chairperson at EarthFund Global Alysia Helming, and President of METE (Metalourgiki Kozanis) Constantine Messinis.

As Katsos noted, “in the 200th Year of Hellenic Independence the high energy dependency of Greece has been an ‘Achilles' heel’ of its economy. It has acted as a hindrance to its growth, contributed to a weakening of its geo-strategic position and created a reliance on third countries, some not friendly, for its energy sources.”

“The opportunities to revitalize the Hellenic energy industry and overcome the current challenges in the coming years is what our distinguished panel will explore in this second in a series event Hellenic Energy and due to the overwhelming response to continue the dialogue from our November 2020 EMBCA Hellenic Energy Independence event,” Katsos continued. “We hope this continuing conversation contributes to a wave of innovation in this regard.”
