German Businesses Planning Investments in Greece Could Create 50,000 Jobs

German businesses are planning important investments in Greece, such as the creation of a logistics center in Alexandroupolis and investments in tourism, which could create up to 50,000 new jobs, especially for younger Greeks, Germany’s Deputy Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development, Hans-Joachim Fuchtel, said on Wednesday during a meeting with the head of the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Konstadinos Michalos.

Fuchtel said that local chambers will play an important role in the cooperation between Greek and German businesses on a local level, because they know best about the possibilities and opportunities in their region. He also noted the importance of internship programs implemented by the chambers.

Michalos spoke to Fuchtel about the improvement of Greece’s economy and invited German business people to invest in Greece, noting the chambers will be their allies in this effort.
