The “11th Annual Capital Link Sustainability Forum” entitled “Tackling Social & Economic Transformation / Sustainable Growth - Economy & Society” will take place on Wednesday andThursday, April 21 & 22, 2021, in digital form, under the Auspices of Attica Region, the City of Athens and the Municipality of Piraeus.

With the covid reality as a preamble and having left behind an admittedly challenging year for the global community and the economy, we are ready to face the new landscape with a renewed sense of optimism and certainty. This new perspective is created by the accelerated digital transformation and the transition to the digital economy, and is predicated on the assessment that these conditions will strengthen the global economic activity and allow for a return to growth.

The use of EUR 70 billion funds that Greece will receive from the Recovery and Resilience Facility in the form of subsidies and low-interest loans, in key sectors such as renewable energy, tourism, transport and the agri-food sector, is a decisive step towards the consolidated transition of the economic system towards sustainable growth model, with the banking sector playing a key role in effectively tackling climate change and adopting a new growth model.

Over two days and with the participation of Government officials as well as top market executives and representatives of the academic community, the Capital Link Sustainability Forum will examine how each sector contributes to this transformation in the best way to benefit the Greek Economy and Society.
