Greece needs industrial rebirth, SEV’s president Theodoros Fessas says

SEV, Greek employers’ union, will organize an investment forum in early 2018 to present a comprehensive proposal on how to transform Greece into a really attractive investment destination, SEV’s president Theodoros Fessas said on Wednesday.

Addressing a closed-door general assembly of the Federation of Hellenic Industries and Enterprises, Fessas underlined the need for an industrial rebirth of the country and said that Greek industry, under the right conditions, could significantly raise its production and exports and support more the Greek economy. Referring to the celebration of the 110th birthday of the Federation, Fessas said the federation’s resistance was a constant reminder that each cycle of crisis has an end.

Fessas said attracting investments was a national goal that will bring together workers, businessmen and the society.

Akis Skertsos, managing director of SEV said the federation’s members rose by 30 pct in 2016. “Our members actively support public revenue, create job positions, produce, invest, export and represent 65 pct of total business investments in the country,” he noted.
