Greece's Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and executives of the US International Development Finance Corporation, headed by the CEO Adam Boehler, discussed the prospects of large US investments in Greece in shipyards and ports.
The meeting took place on Monday at Maximos Mansion.
The International Development Finance Corporation is a US government institution and is active in strategic investments in the energy, infrastructure and technology sectors.
During the meeting, Mitsotakis placed special emphasis on the government's investment policy and, in particular, on the priority given by the government to the rapid implementation of large foreign investments in a number of sectors of the economy, as well as the importance of the strategic relationship with the United States for the promotion of these initiatives.
