Welcome to the special insert of the real estate and investment special issue presented to you by The National Herald. In a hectic period for the entire globe where there is war in Ukraine and an ongoing pandemic, people are looking for any semblance of normalcy to cling to. Investing in Greece is seen by many as a great opportunity, with many people potentially moving to the country at a time where remote work has only grown in popularity. Greece is a country where the weather is largely mild and that has airports with connectivity to some of the most popular destinations globally. Pristine beaches abound and the cuisine is exceptional – the positives go on and on.
Over the last two and-a-half-years Greece, with the Kyriakos Mitsotakis-led government, has experienced something that it has not had in many years: a strong, stable government with a plan and a clear popular mandate which has allowed continuity at a political level, which is part of the recipe for attracting foreign direct investment. Indeed, the minister for investment, Adonis Georgiadis, just this week posted statistical data on his social media platforms indicating that Greece has not had such robust foreign direct investment in the last decade as it does now. Even those with rudimentary knowledge of Greece speak about the potential of the country; now is the perfect opportunity to seize on that potential to help Greece and your own portfolio thrive.
So often in Greece’s hours of most dire need, the Diaspora has been called upon to resuscitate the economy, to stabilize the situation politically – or sometimes both. Thankfully, Greece is not in political turmoil at this time, nor is the country experiencing some grave financial crisis. The only financial situation that is impacting Greece is the same one that is impacting the entire global economy, which is largely inflation, especially rising energy prices.
Today, Greece presents the perfect opportunity for investors either looking for a prime place from which to work remotely or to reconnect with their roots if they are of Greek descent – and if they want to retire in a place that is not called Florida.
It is imperative for the Hellenic diaspora to not only contribute to Greece during their vacation allotments from work or university, but to view Greece as a country where they can expand their reach financially while also immersing themselves, truly and deeply, in the culture – beyond the superficial ‘touristy’ levels. The National Herald is proud to present to its readers this special insert, in consultation with experts in the field, that will provide you with information about why you and those in your sphere should choose Greece as their next real estate and investment destination.
