The Business Dinner of the Hellenic-German Chamber of Commerce was held with great success on Friday, November 3rd, at the “Makedonia Palace” hotel in Thessaloniki. The official guests and speakers of the dinner were the Minister of Labor and Social Security, Adonis Georgiadis, and the Minister of Development, Kostas Skrekas. After their speeches, the Ministers took part in a Q&A session and discussed with the participants all the open issues of the economy, especially the government’s plans in the fields of investments and entrepreneurship.
In a period of intense investment activity and shortly after the election of the new government, the Hellenic-German Chamber of Commerce took the initiative to organize this particular event in order to highlight the characteristics that make up a rapidly changing economic environment which is clearly affected by the current developments of the last few days.
Significant at the event, and as a “Gold Sponsor,” was the presence of the German energy company ProEuropean Trading GmbH, represented by the CEO Ms. Elena Margariti, accompanied by Ms. Melissa Verykios, Chair of the Board of Clean Hydrogen Partnership, and Dr. Ioannis Tzortzis, Legal Advisor, Head of the Coordinating Committee of the Fair Development Transition Plan.
During their contacts with the Ministers, MPs, and Entrepreneurs of the Hellenic-German Chamber of Commerce, they had the opportunity to showcase the major project to be carried out in Crete, the H2 CRETE VALLEY, whose official presentation will take place on Tuesday, November 21st, 2023, in Brussels at the Hydrogen Week exhibition. This project is part of the 84 globally recognized valleys by the Clean Hydrogen Partnership organization and concerns the production of Green Hydrogen from Renewable Energy Sources (RES).
