Monday and Tuesday, November 18 & 19, 2019

Aiming at creating a platform for dialogue and communication as well as exploring the long-term significance of establishing a safe, secure and prosperous region, this annual conference is organized by the Delphi Economic Forum and the Greek daily newspaper Kathimerini, which celebrates its 100th anniversary, in association with the Hellenic American Leadership Council.

Over the course of this two-day meeting, important leaders from different sectors of society will discuss strategies and a call-to-action for strengthening ties between the USA, Southeast Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean. Government officials, eminent scholars, academic luminaries and business leaders will engage in extensive discussion and rigorous analysis with a view to generating recommendations for U.S. policy-making for Southeast Europe and East Med; fostering private-sector development and international co-operation as cornerstones for the revitalization of both regions; finally, facilitating technical and high-level dialogue and transferring knowledge across various policy and business areas.
