Featured Assistant Sec'y of State Palmer: Greece has become attractive investment destination

US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Matthew Palmer for European and Euroasian Affairs sent a strong message to foreign investors that, following the Prespes Agreement, Greece has become the most attractive investing destination in the western Balkans.

At a press conference in the context of his visit to Athens, Palmer also said the implementation of the Agreement is key to North Macedonia's European course, and termed the Prespes Agreement a significant diplomatic achievement.

Responding to a reporter's question on the importance of Prespes Agreement in attracting investments, he estimated that it will attract foreign investors and will create opportunities for the Greek enterprises, especially for those operating in northern Greece and in particular Thessaloniki, which is the gateway to the western Balkans. 

"For a foreign investor with a lot of money who seeks a place to invest his money and wants to take advantage of the Balkan market, the most attractive site will be Thessaloniki," he said, called the northern Greek city "the capital of the Balkans".
