Exposision in Greece: Defence, Security, Energy and Civil Aviation

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   Athens International” is the only exhibition in Greece and in the broader area of the Eastern Mediterranean covering four key sectors (defence, security, energy and civil aviation) and offering participating companies and sponsors immediate access to potential investment plans and infrastructure contracts in the area.  Held under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Economy and Finance, the Ministry of National Defence and the City of Athens, this second edition (May 21-24) covers additional infrastructure areas besides defence. Quoting the head of the organising committee, “having the potential of becoming a kind of ‘Greek Davos,’ where business meetings coincide with diplomatic consultations, ‘Athens International’ has once again attracted an impressively large number of Greek and international companies despite the global economic slowdown.”  All exhibitors may participate in the special conference co-organized by the “Hellenic Foundation for European & Foreign Policy” (ELIAMEP) and the think tanks of the ruling and main opposition party, the “Constantinos Karamanlis Institute for Democracy” and the “Andreas Papandreou Institute of Strategic and Development Studies”. The conference will address issues such as emerging threats in defence and security, new procurement programmes, economic diplomacy and energy challenges in the area.  Secretariat General for Information: About Greece- Greece and Southeastern Europe  & Greece and the Mediterranean
