Dr Christos Dimas, Deputy Minister for Development and Investments in charge of Research and Technology in Greece, will take part in a special video conference to discuss how Greek Australians can invest in the fields of innovation and technology.
The conference, which is part of the ‘Greek Australian Dialogue Series,’ will be held on Monday, November 30, from 5pm to 6.30pm.
It is hosted on behalf of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Katia Gkikiza the Trade Commissioner (Australia) Office for Economic and Commercial Affairs, Consulate General of Greece in Sydney.
During the video conference, Dr Dimas will discuss the challenges faced by the research and innovation sector in Greece, as well as his vision for where he sees the sector going and how to ensure Greece plays a leading role in the innovation field within the Balkan neighbourhood.
Dr Dimas will also express his hope that Greece will play a leading role in innovation, with a clear aim of improving the Greek economy’s competitiveness and thus, achieve better results in the European Index of Innovation.
“Since the very first day we were elected to government, we knew there wouldn’t be a period of grace,” Dr Dimas, who is one of the youngest members of the Mitsotakis government cabinet, says in a statement prior to the video conference.
“For the first time, in the last 10 years, we have had a government with an absolute majority in Parliament and one that is committed to deep structural reforms. Our basic pursuit is to make every day better than the previous day and we want this to be reflected in the daily life of our fellow citizens.”
Following his presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask Dr Dimas a question in the Q&A session.
