Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Friday had a discussion with Amazon executives regarding the global company’s very significant planned investment in Greece, involving the expansion of the Amazon Web Services Local Zones infrastructure outside of the United States, ANA reports.
The discussion was organized online with AWS Vice President for Global Public Policy Michael Punke, who congratulated the prime minister on the great strides that Greece has made in a very short space of time.
Mitsotakis underlined that Greece is changing rapidly and becoming a hub for investments in high technology. He said it was very encouraging that major global players were choosing Greece as a place to establish a permanent presence. He said the investment was “one more vote of confidence in the prospects of the Greek economy” and spoke about the great efforts being made for the digitalization of the Greek state.
“We have a ‘cloud first’ policy and we intend to establish Greece as a center for data storage. The government is fully aligned to support this vision and I am very happy that you are responding to this and that you will significantly increase your presence in Greece,” he noted.
