To the Members and Friends of the Council on Competitiveness of Greece
On behalf of the President of the Council on competitiveness of Greece,
We have the pleasure and honor to invite you at the 8th Discussion for Action
Wednesday 21st, October, 2020 at 18.30-20.00 am
At a virtual event on REGIONS AS THE LOCOMOTIVES FOR DEVELOPMENT
We are glad to host the following distinguished speakers:
1) Adonis Georgiades, Minister for Development & Investment
2) Nicky Dandolou, Special Secretary for European Funds Management
3) Stavros Arnaoutakis, Governor of Crete island
4) Dimitris Kouretas, PhD Professor, Department of Biochemistry-Biotechnology University of Thessaly
As the Recovery Plan plays a critical role on the development trajectory of Greece for the next 5 years, it is evident that regions strongly need to prioritize their plans and actions according to competitiveness targets and in relevance to a nationally coherent strategic plan attractive to investors.
We mention below some indicative plans that the Regions can opt to target:
- Enhance their particular regional competitiveness according to investors’ criteria, as they are referred e.g. at the 2020 Kearney FDI Confidence Index. (presentation from our previous Discussion for Action)
- Prepare a standardized guide with processes facilitating eventual investors to get established in their region.
- Create an Excellence Centre to connect academia with the wider business environment.
- Create a specific network for bridging swiftly the demand and supply side of the labor market with real time information.
- Create and nurture a mutual understanding mechanism between central and local government so that criteria for each region according to RCI are better communicated, explained and utilized.
- Create a network among various stakeholders to freely circulate relevant information, knowledge, expertise and success stories in order to accelerate and escalate best practices.
We are looking forward to your participation and to a vivid and committed discussion in order to produce specific outcomes for action.
