PAST EVENT: Breaking the Bottlenecks: Steps Towards Sustainable Growth June 8th, 2016
Dear friends,
On Wednesday, June 8th in collaboration with the London Business School Alumni chapter,
we have the pleasure of organizing a high-profile event that will take place at the Cotsen Hall, which is housed in The American School of Classical Studies in Athens. The event is titled"Breaking the Bottlenecks - Steps towards Sustainable Growth" and will cover topics inInternational Finance, Greek Banking, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Public Policy.

Greece, six years after the implementation of the first austerity measures and after multiple shocks to its political scene, seems to still have a lot of ground to cover before exiting the crisis. Despite the steps that have been taken, large adjustments need to take place not only to remedy the banking system, but also to upgrade state and social institutions.

At the same time, it is paramount to revitalize entrepreneurship through supporting innovation and extroversion so that the Greek economy enters a trajectory of stable and sustainable growth.
The event that we are co-hosting is designed to supply participants with theoretical and practical solutions from world renowned academics and eminent personalities of Greece.
The event will be held in English.
