It is recalled that the Eastern Mediterranean region creates a dynamic field of cooperation for energy, business, research and innovation, security and investment, as Greece, Cyprus and Israel aim to strengthen the importance of the region as an important hub.
Mr. Dimas is expected to speak about the challenges of the time, the opportunities that lie ahead, as well as the new pro-business climate that Greece has, the high potential of its human resources, the reforms in the innovation ecosystem and the domestic investment opportunities in research and development (R&D).
The Undersecretary will also refer to the structural changes that have taken place in recent years in the country at all levels which, in combination with the events in the wider region, bring Greece to the forefront of developments.
In addition, the current political situation and the war in Ukraine are creating a new security architecture in Europe that will give way to new strategic projects to diversify energy supply and investment in the region, where cooperation in the field of economy, science and innovation play a key role.
