COVID-19 and Economic Recovery in Greece – challenges and prospects

We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming zoom webinar:

COVID-19 and Economic Recovery in Greece – challenges and prospects’, co-hosted with LSE Hellenic Observatory.

Greece has come through an exceptional debt crisis and now it faces the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. Can it maintain its return to growth? What are its best opportunities – as well as its biggest risks? What support does Greece seek from the European Union, with the proposed Recovery Plan? How does the Government intend to respond to the proposals made by the Pissarides Commission? Dr. Christos Staikouras is Minister of Finance for Greece and a New Democracy MP. He will outline his plans for Greece and respond to comments and questions from our expert discussants, as well as the audience.
