Prior to the opening bell ceremony, an exchange of commemorative gifts took place between the NYSE and Dr. Nikolas P. Tsakos, Founder, President & CEO, TEN Ltd., and Minister of Finance Staikouras.

The active support and participation of NYSE, the world’s largest stock exchange, enhances the prestige and the visibility of Greece to a wider international investment audience. It also shows the stable support of NYSE to Greece, the Greek companies, the Greek shipping industry, and the Greek-American Diaspora.

The U.S. Capital Markets are a major source of capital for a growing number of companies of Greek interest and the NYSE is playing a leading role in this.

The event was broadcast live on major news stations in the United States and abroad to an estimated audience of 150 million viewers worldwide.
