Fragogiannis Expresses Greece’s Determination to Conquer the Future

ATHENS – Deputy Foreign Minister for Economic Diplomacy and Openness Kostas Fragogiannis in an interview with Vima newspaper on Sunday expressed the government's determination to conquer the next day with the contribution of extroverted, modern and dynamic diplomacy in the economic, social and environmental development of Greece.

"Now, more than ever," he said, "economic diplomacy must rely on traditional but new policies as well, based on emerging needs and new ideas. Evaluating emerging opportunities. With imagination and courage. With a commitment to serving the bilateral and multilateral economic relations of Greece. By supporting businesses in extroverted actions. By attracting foreign investments in the country and finally the creation and promotion of the modern image of the country in Greece and abroad."

The first obvious conclusion of the new normality is the country's self-sufficiency and security in the production chain: health, technological and industrial.

According to Fragogiannis "our special geographical location, rich human resources, capitalization of our privileged political relations with traditional allies and new partners, the surplus of credibility due to the successful management of the crisis, and our steady European orientation provide a comparative advantage over other countries and can lead to investments in the relocation of part of the production process from America or Asia to the Greek economic space. 'Re-shoring' – as it is called – has economic, national and even geopolitical dimensions."

Referring to the digital transformation that came earlier due to the coronavirus, the deputy minister pointed out that it has led to digital platforms that set the tone for the future.
