Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis held separate meetings at his office on Monday with representatives of leading companies in telecoms and energy interested in investing further in Greece.

Deutsche Telekom CEO Tim Hoettges, along with the head of the European subsidiary and the head of Hellenic Telecommunications Organizaton (OTE), met with Mitsotakis and State Minister for Digital Governance Kyriakos Pierrakakis to discuss OTE's investment plan and the German company's possible contribution in Greece's digital transformation, a priority issue for the Greek premier.

The German telecoms giant, which holds a 45 pct stake in OTE, expressed interest in a public-private collaboration on high-speed Internet through fiber optics and in developing a fifth-generation mobile network (5G). Deutsche Telecom and OTE said they expected to jointly create 100 new job openings within the next two years.

Later in the day the prime minister also met with the CEO of Enel Green Power, which has built the wind farm in Kafireas, Evia. The project will be inaugurated by Mitsotakis on Tuesday and is expected to cover the power needs of 130,000 families. It is expected to reduce lignite dependence in Greece by nearly half a million tons and Greece's carbon footpring by almost half a million tons of carbon dioxide.
