The American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce (AmChamGR) is holding its 32nd annual Greek Economic Summit (GES) in Athens, Greece, on December 6-8, 2021. The Summit is organized in cooperation with the Athens Stock Exchange and with the strategic partnership of the US Chamber of Commerce and the Atlantic Council.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. David G. Horner, President of The American College of Greece, will participate in a panel discussion entitled “Academic, Entrepreneurship and Innovation: A crucial interconnection for a sustainable economy” on the last day of the GES. Don’t miss our two Deree students, Dimitris Konstantinidis and Nephele Syrmali, who will take part in a panel discussion on December 7 on ‘Age gap or mentality gap? A discussion with the youth about the future of Greece.’ Dimitris is pursuing a BSc degree with Honors in Finance with a Minor in Financial Markets Trading while Nephele is studying for her BA in International Relations and European Affairs.
Since its launch in 1990, GES has grown into a national institution, reflecting the political and economic life of the country and serving as the premier forum for key stakeholders from Greece and abroad. They aim to exchange ideas and share insights on the Greek and international economy, examine key local and global issues, and propose policy points. In over three decades, the Summit has attracted — and continues to attract — heads of state, senior public officials and political leaders, top policymakers, chief executives and industry experts, and leading representatives of the country’s academic, financial and media communities alongside eminent foreign dignitaries, specialists, and international organization heads. To date, GES has featured more than 1,000 distinguished speakers.
