Greece: risk, but returns

Offering opportunities rarely found in central and south-east Europe

Why Greece?

Since the global financial crisis and the country’s economic collapse, Greece has been adopting policies and regulations that will help the country boost its economic growth.  One of the key drivers is foreign investment, especially in the tourism and real estate sectors.

Companies willing to embrace risk say that after years of shrinking investment and deep wage cuts, Greece offers opportunities rarely found in central and south-east European markets, according to the Financial Times. The Greek economy is projected to expand by 2.5 per cent in 2018, and the IMF and other Greek creditors are drawing closer to a deal over the country’s bailout programme following parliament’s approval of additional pension and tax reforms.

Of course, a better understanding of Greek business opportunities and an awareness of potential local challenges will help international investors succeed in this market.
