Greek Trade Office, Enterprise Greece & Duane Morris Host Cannabis Event May 20

NEW YORK – Duane Morris’ Cannabis Group partners with the Consulate General of Greece’s New York Trade Office and Enterprise Greece to present Cannabis Investment: How Greece Is Embracing the Opportunity and Leading the EU Market, a webinar on Thursday, May 20, 12:30-2 PM EDT.

RSVP for the event online: shorturl.at/pEMZ9

Login details will be provided upon registration.

Greece is a newcomer to hemp cultivation for medicinal purposes. However, the country is gradually emerging as a key European player, mainly due to its recent innovative regulation. The Greek government pays particular attention to streamlining procedures, introducing new provisions for the export, distribution and circulation of the final Cannabis sativa L. with more than 0.2% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Join the webinar for answers and an update on the latest developments and trends from Enterprise Greece, the country’s investment and trade promotion agency, on questions such as:

What’s Greece’s potential for pharmaceutical cannabis projects?

What’s the role of geography? Can Greece become a regional hub for producing and exporting final products?

How can the country support new investments? Which are the main investment incentive schemes on offer?

Which are the main steps for developing a new project?

Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from Viridian Capital Advisors, Kaya Holdings, Tikun and other renowned companies already active in the country. View the full agenda for this program online: shorturl.at/vDMOS.
