THESSALONIKI — Visiting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Development & Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis signed a joint US-Greece commitment in Thessaloniki to promote science and technology that will benefit citizens and the economy and promote security in the Eastern Mediterranean.

This was announced by US Chief Techology Officer Michael Kratsios shortly before the signing, which was witnessed also by Greek Deputy Minister for Energy & Technology Christos Dimas. Kratsios, who is part of a delegation led by Pompeo, said today's event updates a related agreement dating to 1980.

Referring to the International Thessaloniki Fair of 2018, where the US was the honored country, Kratsios said joint actions have developed in an excellent way since then.

After the signing and the departure of Pompeo and Georgiadis, Kratsios and Dimas met with local government, agencies and businesses in research and innovation in Thessaloniki, including US companies active in Greece.

The agreement and a round-table discussion on energy that included Pompeo, Environment & Energy Minister Kostis Hatzidakis and Deputy Prime Minister of North Macedonia Fatmir Bytyqi, responsible for economic affairs, took place at the new premises of the Association of Industries of Greece (SVE) in the Palia Sfagia area of Thessaloniki.
