Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is holding meetings today with financial players in London’s City district,
In the afternoon, he will hold talks with Prime Minister Theresa May and with Labour leader Jeremy Corbin.
Straight on the heels of the Eurogroup’s decision on debt relief, the PM’s contacts with leading figures of the investment community of the City, which is Europe’s economic centre, signals a clear international message regarding the prospects of the Greek economy, and the day after the completion of the bailout memorandum.
The prime minister sent another message yesterday at a meeting with young professionals in London.
“Greece can become a hub for scientific research, new technologies, start-up enterprises, and new cooperative endavours,” Tsipras said.
“Our country produces brilliant young scientists and professionals, many of whom are distinguished in particularly demanding areas of academic knowledge and of the market,” he added.
In the two-hour meeting, Tsipras listened to the experiences, accomplishments, and thoughts of the “brain drain youth”.
They discussed the government’s aim of making Greece more attractive for investors in the coming period, and the prospects of the country in the post-bailout era.
