Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis also met with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla in New York.
According to government sources, the meeting examined the progress of Pfizer’s investments in Thessaloniki, with an emphasis on well-paid, highly skilled jobs that attract academics, including young Greeks who had gone abroad during the financial crisis.
Bourla said that the employees in Thessaloniki are engaged in demanding research programs, such as research in the technology of artificial intelligence.
The office of the Prime Minister of Greece tweeted, “We spoke with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla about the progress of Pfizers investments that will attract scientific staff to Greece, including Greeks who had left the country to go abroad during the financial crisis.”
The Greek PM has managed another face-to-face meeting with the Pfizer CEO, this time talking not just vaccination supply but also research investments that help reverse Greece’s pandemic brain drain to bring scientists back. Imagine if Australia had invested in universities… https://t.co/7BU3fGlfad
