ATHENS - Japan Tobacco International has begun a three-year strategic partnership to further invest in Greece, beginning with the online 3rd InvestGR Forum 2020: Greece in the Pole Position, on July 15-16 and then again Oct. 8-9.

Victor Crespo, Managing Director of JTI in Greece, stated: “It is with great pleasure that we begin our collaboration with this important institution, InvestGR Forum. Our presence at this Forum confirms our company’s strategic decision to have production activity in Greece, a country we consider an attractive investment market, especially after the recent successful health crisis management.

“We believe that international investment is key for the recovery of the local economy while strengthening the county’s positive image and we seek active participation in the public dialogue towards this direction.”

Andreas Yannopoulos, Founder of InvestGR Forum, said: “We welcome Japan Tobacco International as Strategic Partner of the InvestGR Forum for the next three years. JTI is a company with a leading presence in its sector worldwide, as well as in Greece where it has been operating successfully for many years.”

The forum is organized by PUBLIC AFFAIRS AND NETWORKS for the third consecutive year and will be held with the support and under the auspices of the Representation of the European Commission in Greece, the Ministry of Development and Investments, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV), while major media will support the project as Media Sponsors.
