The “20th Annual Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum” will take place in New York City on Monday, December 10, 2018. This is an International Summit about Greece in New York organized in cooperation with the New York Stock Exchange and major global investment banks.
With a 20-year track record of success, the Forum traditionally attracts well over 1,000 senior executives - government and business leaders from Greece, Europe and the United States, and top executives from the investment, financial and business communities.
The timing for this Forum is optimal. After years of recession, Greece is returning to a period of economic growth and aims to position itself as an attractive investment and business destination. The Forum will provide the audience with a unique blend of informational, marketing and networking opportunities. December marks the 20 year milestone of Capital Link’s commitment to raising awareness about Greece as an investment destination, to a wider investor universe. The conference will feature the developments and reforms in the Greek economy and the Greek government programme for the economy and investments. Also, the latest trends in the capital markets and specific sectors with topics such as Government and Corporate Bonds, energy, infrastructure development, real estate, tourism, banking, non-performing loans management, and global shipping.
