The objective of the Employers' Group thematic meeting, jointly organised with the National Hellenic Confederation of Commerce (ESEE) is to have an open and frank discussion on the critical issue of the lack of access to finance in Greece which jeopardise business development, economic recovery and growth. Our aim is to propose concrete initiatives to national and EU decision-makers based on a constructive exchange between EESC Employers Group members and Greek business actors.
