Heads of state, policymakers and business leaders from around the globe will participate in the Delphi Economic Forum that kicks off on Wednesday in the historic town of Delphi.
Held under the auspices of President of the Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou, the event this year has “Paradigm Shifts” as its central theme, based on the following key pillars: Geopolitics Disrupted, Climate & Environment, Sustainable Economy & Finance, Social Inclusiveness, and Technological Advancement.
The forum will seek to explore answers to some of the most pressing issues of the time: how societies around the world can work together to turn today’s instability into hope; how relationships alter in a constantly changing geopolitical environment in the field of foreign policy, security and economy; how prepared leaders and businesses are to adapt to these changes.
