This year, the Horasis India Meeting will bring together more than 300 of the most senior community members, including politicians, CEOs and leaders from some of India and Greece’s most respected organizations. 

The two-day event will explore beneficial new ventures, leveraging Athens as a hub to invest in Greece and Europe with All India Management Association (AIMA), India SME Forum, and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) acting as Partner Organizations for the 2024 edition of this annual summit. 

Planned topics include why Athens is emerging as Europe’s leading business center, how ESG initiatives can be improved within enterprises, accelerating sustainable growth globally and positioning India and Greece as leading innovation hubs with a collaborative relationship. 

In February, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis was the chief guest at the Raisina Dialogue, a reflection of Athens’ growing interest in the region. Media reports also say that Greece and India are to sign a defense cooperation agreement soon.

10 years ago, Greece was in an economic crisis defined by years of adversity. Now, the business community is saying this year could be the year its rebound is finally complete. According to Reuters, Greece’s economy is expected to grow nearly 3% in 2024, far exceeding the eurozone average of 0.8%. 

As the European Union’s country with the longest coastline, Greece has successfully leveraged its geographic potential, emerging as the largest ship-owning nation in the world. Shipping makes up 8% of the Greece’s GDP. Greece takes active part in international maritime security initiatives like EUNAVFOR ATALANTA, as well as plays an crucial role in shaping the EU’s maritime security agenda. EU’s adoption of the EU Maritime Strategy in 2014 occurred under the Greek presidency.

The Indian economy is likely to remain the fastest-growing major one in the years ahead, with the country’s economy forecast to grow by 6.9% in 2024.

Founded in 2009 by Dr. Frank Jurgen-Richter, the Horasis India Meeting has become one of the most important annual meetings for Indian business leaders and their global counterparts. The meeting will help establish the government and private initiatives needed to boost growth in both nations and sectors with mutual opportunities for collaboration.

Horasis is an independent, international think tank, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland. Founded in 2009, by Frank-Jürgen Richter, Horasis is dedicated to the innovation and development of sustainable emerging markets. In addition to the Horasis India Meeting, Horasis hosts the annual Horasis Global Meeting, Horasis USA Meeting, Horasis China Meeting, Horasis Asia Meeting, as well as the annual gatherings of the Horasis Visionary Circle.
