The event started at 18:45, with over 300 guests attending. It began with the Welcome – Presentation, Greetings,
the Central Speech of the Deputy Foreign Minister, Mr. G. Katrougalos and ended with the award ceremony and
the dinner party.
In his keynote speech, Mr. Katrougalos noted that “Extroversion was the one that saved the companies which gave
an unequal battle and is the one we came to honor today. However, entrepreneurship and the acumen of Greek
entrepreneurs are not enough. We have to go out of the crisis with the extinction of what led to it, such as the
unfavorable global environment, the weaknesses in the Eurozone architecture, the distorted production model and
the weaknesses of the political system.”
