The Federation of Greek Industries on Wednesday signed a bilateral agreement with the Federation of Indian Industries to set up a Greek-Indian CEOs' Forum.
The agreement was signed at the presence of Deputy Foreign Minister Petros Doukas, who is currently on an official visit to India.
Thanassis Lavidas, secretary-general and head of SEB’s international activities, said the agreement sealed a cooperation protocol signed last February in New Delhi, thus creating new prospects for the Greek business community.
The Greek-Indian CEOs' Forum aims to strengthen bilateral economic relations, such as raising Greek investments to India and promoting Greek products in a market with a population of hundreds of millions. The forum will also help both Greek and Indian exporting companies and help solve problems such as copyright laws, simplify legislation, deregulating commerce and simplifying procedures for foreign investments.
