Green light for Saudi Arabia Economic and Commercial Affairs Office in Athens

February 9, 2022

ATHENS – The Greek foreign ministry has given its consent for the establishment of a Saudi Arabia Office of Economic and Commercial Affairs in Athens, diplomatic sources revealed on Wednesday.

The operation of the specific office is expected to contribute to further strengthening the ties between the two countries, via the development of bilateral trade and investments.

It is a sign of a continuous strengthening of bilateral relations, especially in light of the recent visit by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to Riyadh and the Saudi Arabian foreign minister’s visit to Athens a month ago.

The decision to open the office was finalised and announced during the meeting between the two countries’ foreign ministers.


LAMIA, Greece - Prime Minister Mitsotakis on Tuesday morning attended a special event organised near the tunnel of Orthris, ahead of the delivery on Tuesday afternoon of the two remaining sections of the E65 motorway traversing Central Greece.
