Following the disruption caused by the SARS-CoV-2 global pandemic last year, GMI Post is preparing a second Special Report on Greece, which will again highlight the country’s main economic players and hidden champions. The special report is planned for this summer to coincide with the opening of the postponed Tokyo Olympics.
While the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic reversed the solid gains made by Greece in 2018, when the country exited its economic bailout program, the country is getting back up on its feet with cautious optimism as the government led by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mistotakis efficiently oversees its vaccination rollout.
Analysts predict that Greece’s GDP to grow between 3.5 and 4.0 percent in the coming months. Supporting this prediction is the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement, which came into effect in 2019, created the world’s largest free trade zone, and gave a strong boost to Greek agri-food exporters. In fact, only one year after the EU-Japan EPA came into effect, Greek exports to Japan doubled.
The upcoming report will highlight Greece’s highly profitable prospects outside the EU and identify valuable investment opportunities for Japanese companies.
Inquiries regarding this report can be directed to Project Coordinator Francis Pacheco.
