Greece's special secretary for competitiveness, Spyros Efstathopoulos, and INSEAD professor and member of the National Competition and Development Council's committee of experts Spyros Makrydakis, will be representing development minister Dimitris Sioufas at an event marking the 20th anniversary of the US Council on Competitiveness in Washington next week.
Sioufas was invited to the Nov. 13-14 anniversary event by Council on Competitiveness president Deborah Wince-Smith. The theme of the two-day event will be "Imagination, Vision, Innovation, Influence".
The visit is taking place in the context of the collaboration between the US and Greek competition councils, which was initiated during Wince-Smith's visit to Athens in return of a visit by the development minister to Washington.
