U.S. Ambassador Calls on Greek-Americans to Invest in Greece

Greek Americans Pyatt

U.S. Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt challenged earlier in the week the Greek-American business world to “take a closer look at investing in Greece.”

Speaking at an American Hellenic Institute (AHI) event held in Athens on Wednesday, Pyatt said that “the sweeping reforms that the Greek government has undertaken have created the most business-friendly environment in the country in many decades.”

He noted that these reforms have helped to drive major new investments in Greece by giants like Cisco, Pfizer, Mondelez, Digital Realty, AWS, and Microsoft.

“It’s time for folks to give Greece another look,” he added.

He referred to U.S. companies like Pfizer, Abbott Corporation, and Johnson & Johnson for helping to strengthen health care cooperation with Greece, tech companies like Microsoft, Cisco, AWS, and Google which have stepped up to offer remote work and learning solutions to Greek citizens, and the Niarchos Foundation which has funded the expansion of ICU capacity in Greece’s public hospitals.
