Panhellenic Exporters Association Virtual Forum Focuses on Opportunity

NEW YORK – The Panhellenic Exporters Association Virtual Forum on December 2 featured fascinating discussions centered on the theme Exports Turn Crisis into Opportunity. The annual event which took place in cooperation with the Hellenic-American Chamber of Commerce and its President Markos Drakotos was held online this year due to the pandemic.

As Panhellenic Exporters Association President Christina Sakellaridis noted in her welcoming remarks online, the theme of the event was “With Exporters for Exports from 1945 to 2020 (75 Years).”

She also quoted U.S. President John F. Kennedy who said, “The Crisis in Chinese is written in two letters, one means Danger and the other Opportunity,” adding that “we choose the second.”

Drakotos said of the event, “I would like to start off by thanking Ms. Christina Sakellaridis and the Panhellenic Exporters Association for inviting us to join with them in putting together this joint Forum celebrating Panhellenic Exporters Association’s 75th anniversary. The Panhellenic Exporters Association showed its strength and ability to reinvent itself for the better during these difficult times.

“Together we say ‘OXI’ to a misunderstood disease, to a lack of belief in Greek resiliency, to those who are mistaken as to what Greece and its people are able to produce, accomplish and overcome. Events as this Forum, spanning from one continent to another, create one voice with a never-ending echo chanting our potential. We are looking forward to our continued cooperation with the Panhellenic Exporters Association and also with forging an ever-blossoming alliance with the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry.”

Among the panel discussions, What Are Buyers and Investors Looking for? was moderated by AHEPA District 6 Governor Louis Katos and included a distinguished panel with Chairman and CEO of the Red Apple Group John Catsimatidis, Chairman and CEO of Metropoulos & Co. Dean Metropoulos, and Chairman and Global CIO of Calamos Investments John Calamos offering their insights into this important topic.

The video of the virtual forum is available online on the Hellenic-American Chamber of Commerce Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/177761838920969/videos/186052869816284.

The informative discussion on buyers and investors begins at the 4:30 mark in the video.
