Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras headed to China on Wednesday, amid hopes that the world’s second largest economy can revive one of the euro zone’s most debt laden countries.
Greece is hoping that the five-day trade mission, which includes a delegation of around 70 businessmen, can attract investment as the country continues with the privatization of state-owned assets required under its international bailout deal.
Costas Michalos, president of the Athens Chamber of Commerce who is participating in the trade mission, told CNBC that the visit corroborated “the excellent climate prevailing between Greek–Chinese relations” and said both sides were aiming at “jointly exploiting” major investment opportunities.
