"We welcome India's interest in gaining greater access to the port of Piraeus and investing in other Greek ports, in order to create gateways for its exports to Europe, but also to create manufacturing assembly chains in our country so that the final product has European passport.
It is no coincidence that India, a member of the BRICS countries, after France and Germany, chooses a third European country, Greece, for a strategic relationship, as a political and economic partner. Greece is clearly suitable geopolitically and can become India's gateway to Europe. I consider it mutually beneficial and good practice for India to follow the same successful and safe path through Greece to Europe, as China chose years ago with Cosco's investment in the port of Piraeus," the head of the Piraeus Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Vassilis Korkidis, said following the business contacts that took place during the recent official visit of the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, to Greece.
The Piraeus Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in its announcement, underlined that, in cooperation with the Indian embassy in Greece from 2022, it supports every effort aimed at a wider bilateral commercial and economic cooperation between Greece and India.
