Following the conferences in 2019 and 2020, the European Commission in collaboration with the Foundation for Economic and Industrial Research - IOBE organize for a third consecutive year the “Online Conference on Greece and the EU Recovery and Resilience Facility” on 29 and 30 September 2021.

This year’s Conference focuses on how the National Recovery and Resilience Plan "Greece 2.0" can transform the coronavirus crisis into an opportunity. The public forum provides an opportunity to reflect on the journey travelled by the EU and Greece since the onset of the pandemic and to discuss the key reforms and investments included in “Greece 2.0”. The EU Recovery and Resilience Facility offers opportunities to mitigate the economic and social impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The panel discussions focus on economic policy priorities aiming to make the Greek economy and society more sustainable, resilient and better prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the green and digital transitions.

The Conference brings together senior policymakers, including EU Commissioners, Ministers of the Greek government and shadow Ministers of the opposition, officials from international organizations, private sector representatives, academics, journalists and other stakeholders from Greece and across the EU.

The conference inter alia addresses key policy issues such as:

  • Digital transformation of the economy and the public administration
  • Making an ambitious green transition
  • Ensuring growth with social inclusion
  • Mobilizing finance for Recovery and Resilience
  • Stimulating investments and exports in key sectors
  • Moving from the Recovery and Resilience Plan towards implementation

Background memos summarizing basic facts for these key areas are available to facilitate participation and discussion.
