Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met this afternoon with Matt Brittin, President of Google EMEA.

At their meeting, they discussed the prospect of increasing Google’s investments in our country, the wider utilization of tools that Google already has at its disposal in Greece concerning programs of digital education and entrepreneurship, especially in the field of tourism, while they also discussed about the company’s plans for the Blue Submarine Cable System, that will connect Europe, Asia and Middle East.

The Prime Minister had met earlier the President of Meta Global Affairs, Nick Clegg. During their meeting, they exchanged views on the technological developments, the future of the Web and the opportunities that arise. In this context, it was noted that Greece can play a crucial role in the promotion of innovation in Europe.

During his presence in Davos, the Prime Minister visited the Greek House Davos, which promotes Greece as an investment destination, highlights the Greek entrepreneurship and gives prominence to the role of Greece in Europe and in the world.

“I think that this is a very important initiative, which aligns with the general change of the country’s image and its upgrade. This is a reality that is felt everywhere and it is very important that we have a presence, a space for meetings,” said the Prime Minister.

“Besides, the significance of Davos does not only lie in our public appearances. It is above all the meetings and contacts taking place in the sidelines of the activities that are included in the official program. Therefore, you should know that the government will continue to support this initiative,” continued the Prime Minister, while he added: “You are doing your part in the overall effort to change the country’s image, to attract investments and upgrade Greece politically and economically”.
