Georgiadis: Pandemic Did Not Have a Detrimental Effect on Agreed Investments

ATHENS — Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis said that no investment deals with Greece were voided due to the coronavirus pandemic, but on the contrary, "some investors pushed for speeding those up", speaking at the online Delphi Economic Forum 2020 on Thursday.

"All our major investment projects such as Mirium, Kassiopi, the Hellinikon development project, all continue normally, including the large investment at the Elefsina shipyard which was started by the previous government – that too is in the final stretch," he observed.

The minister concluded that "in strategic areas, the pandemic can be said to have helped attract investments."
