Online Delphi Economic Forum Wants Greece Getting Global Talent

February 21, 2021

ATHENS — A year after The Delphi Economic Forum was forced to operate remotely as the COVID-19 pandemic began spreading in Greece, a teaser version will be the same, a Feb. 23 online conference entitled Greece: Competing for Global Talent.

The organizers told Kathimerini the aim is to go after people who can work in any country with incentives already planned to lure so-called digital nomads with computer and Internet skills whose companies will let them work from anywhere.

“Countries are designing policies and programs to attract talented people. Many of these countries are also encouraging the return of skilled nationals who are working abroad. All are persuaded of the positive contributions skilled people can make to their development progress and sustainable growth. How can Greece be among the winners of the global talent race?” the program stated.

Speakers on board so far include Tourism Minister Haris Theocharis, Deputy Minister for Innovation Christos Dimas and also Deputy Minister for Modern Culture Nicholas Yatromanolakis.

But while the aim is to get foreigners with skills to come to Greece, where English is widely spoken, the sessions will be in Greek although officials at high levels speak English fluently.

Only one session will be in English, Is Greece Attractive for Digital Migrants? featuring NomadX co-founder & CEO David Williams and Nacho Rodríguez, the founder of Nomad City Gran Canaria in Spain.

The main event will be May 12-16 to mark the 200th anniversary of Greece’s independence from the Ottoman Empire, featuring English-driven panels.
