 “Accelerating Investments for Sustainable Growth”

The “25th  Annual Capital Link Invest in Greece New York Forum: Accelerating Investments for Sustainable Growth” will take place Monday, December 11, 2023 as an in-person event at  the Metropolitan Club, in New York. The Forum is held in co-operation with the New York Stock Exchange, the Athens Exchange Group (ATHEX Group), and major Global Investment Banks (Goldman Sachs, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Citi, Morgan Stanley, Nomura & Axia Ventures Group). “Goldman Sachs” and “TEN Ltd (Tsakos Energy Navigation)” are Lead Sponsors of the event. The Forum is organized under the Auspices of the Consulate General of Greece in New York.

We are very proud that this year we are celebrating a milestone – the 25th anniversary of this event, which is the longest running Investment Summit focused on Greece held outside of the country. This event, which is known for its quality and for featuring government and industry leaders, has been taking place year after year, regardless of the political and economic conditions in Greece.

With a 25-year track record of success, the Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum has been engaged in a systematic effort to highlight Greece’s profile to a global business and investment audience as well as enhance the business and investment ties between the United States and Greece. 

As in previous years, the Forum will provide international investors with the unique opportunity to receive the latest updates on the progress, developments and reforms of the Greek economy as well as the business and investment opportunities that open up as Greece has embarked on a long-term sustainable growth trajectory.
