Chris Taylor, Vice President, NYSE Listings and NYSE Services, welcomed the Greek Delegation and the listed companies and highlighted the long-standing relationship between the New York Stock Exchange and the Greek and Greek-American business communities.

Speaking of this celebration, Taylor noted that it has traditionally been held in conjunction with the Annual Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum. As this marks the 22nd anniversary of the Annual Capital Link Forum, he congratulated the President of Capital Link, Nicolas Bornozis, and his team on executing this year’s event virtually.

Taylor also noted that NYSE’s commitment to the Greek-American diaspora, to Greece’s maritime community, and to NYSE’s listed companies remains strong. He concluded by addressing a special welcome to the listed companies joining him for the virtual bell ringing, and looked forward to seeing everyone in person for the NYSE event in 2021.

The active support and participation of NYSE, the world's largest stock exchange, enhances the prestige and the visibility of the Forum and of Greece to a wider international investment audience. It also shows the stable support of NYSE to Greece, the Greek companies, the Greek shipping industry, and the Greek-American diaspora. The U.S. Capital Markets are a major source of capital for a growing number of companies of Greek interest and the NYSE is playing a leading role in this.

The event was broadcast live on major news stations in the United States and abroad to an estimated audience of 150 million viewers worldwide.
