Ideology, Development and Outward Focus

Jan 31, 2017

A panel discussion exploring the potential for entrepreneurship and extroversion in modern Greek society and economy, as well as the importance of the dominant ideology.

Panel discussion on Greeece's development and extroversion at the Hellenic American Union

The turn towards long-term strategic extroversion is a strategy choice for growth and exiting from the crisis. In a time of cumulative recession, with Greece at the epicenter of negative international publicity, is there room to improve domestic business environment, boost competition and extroversion, and leverage the country's geopolitical position to attract investment activities? Is there a recovery prospect for the Greek economy? Can our country reclaim its equal standing within Europe and in the world? And what is the role of the dominant ideology?

Guest speakers to the event, which is the seventh in the series of round-table discussions titled “Dialog for Development.” organized by the Hellenic American Union in cooperation with the Hellenic American College / Hellenic American University and the Greek Department of the Association of European Journalists, will attempt to provide answers to these and other questions.

Speaking at the event, will be:

  • Panos Kazakos, Professor Emeritus, University of Athens and member of the Scientific Council of the Parliamentary Budget Office
  • Leonidas Phoebus Koskos, President of Hellenic American University
  • Paschos Mandravelis, Journalist, Kathimerini newspaper
  • Thanos Niforos, former Investment Advisor to Minister of State of the Hellenic Republic
  • Athanasios Papandropoulos, Executive Director of the Greek Section of the Association of European Journalists
