Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis shared a working lunch with the Strategic Planning Advisory Group “Repositioning Greece”, which his wife Mareva Grabowski also attended.
This is the team that helps upgrade and enhance Greece’s image abroad; it focuses on constructing a new architecture for the country’s image, that is, a holistic strategic plan that will put modern Greece on the world map. According to the press release, “Up until now, Greece was only promoted for its tourism. We need to emit a full picture of a modern version of Greece, a country of creation, economic and cultural development, with a distinct quality of life and respect for the environment. A country that looks at the world with confidence”, Kyriakos Mitsotakis said during the lunch.
This new image, which comprises a priority for the Prime Minister, will support and be supported by every side of the public and private sector, will positively reflect the country and its people, stimulate the pride of the Greeks and, following the track of history, will reveal the contemporary dimension of culture, know-how and human resources, the parameters that make up the generations of Greece.
