Resetting the economy: the tough road ahead

By Spyros Ktenas

Much has been lost and much more will be lost in the coming period as a result of the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, this insidious and strange virus. However, it is now the right time to consider the frontliners who defended and saved the country. And this is worth doing as an end should be put to unfair criticism on what has proved important during the crisis. In detail To begin with, frontliners included the National Health System, thousands of physicians, nurses, scientific staff, EKAB rescuers, and hospital staff across the country, who heroically, selflessly and tirelessly fought a unique battle to keep thousands of our fellow citizens alive. The public health system, which in the past has been so troubled by wrong decisions, has proven that not even the most developed economies, like the US, can rely on the private sector to deal with similar pandemics, which now seem to consolidate a global “mask philosophy.” The country’s Armed Forces offered a sense of security to all of us, as the provocations of our brazen neighbor (Turkey) continued throughout the pandemic. In addition, it is the same people of the Armed Forces who will be called upon to defend the country in the near future against Turkey’s growing aggression. Employees in the food, energy and telecommunications sectors, as well as all those who worked in retail, carried out their difficult task with dignity and patience. Along with them, courier service workers shouldered much of the weight for the market’s smooth supply. The digital economy and online education, which have made the most of new technologies, effectively served millions of citizens, demonstrating the country’s digital future potential. The protagonists of the fight against the pandemic included the thousands of private and public businesses and the Greek shipping community, which made generous donations to support and further upgrade the National Health System. The government, through Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ calm and reassuring attitude, together with Professor Sotiris Tsiodras’ expertise and stoicism, the coordination by Civil Protection and the Greek Police, and the constructive stance of the opposition as a whole, proved once again that the best way to deal with such crises is the unity and agreement among the country’s political forces. So far so good The way in which the country dealt with the pandemic attracted international respect and recognition, as both the state and citizens behaved in a coordinated and disciplined manner, resulting in the least possible losses. However, the “battle” that follows will be just as hard. And if we do not follow the same recipe, we will very likely see victim numbers jump, unlike during the first wave of the pandemic. Restarting the economy, plagued by the country’s 10-year recession, is a much tougher goal. Distressed businesses and employees need to find the strength to reorganize and adapt to new circumstances. The state must support both businesses and employees through real measures, not just by postponing payment of taxes or other dues to the state. And this can only be achieved with the contribution of the European Union, which unfortunately has so far proved to be far below expectations, given the circumstances, since its strong core decided to put forward its narrow national interests. The periphery and the South must hence move accordingly in order to exert due pressure on the EU. And on this, the Greek government’s decisive stance is a crucial issue.

Kostis Hatzidakis Minister of Environment and Energy Vice-President of New Democracy MP for the Athens B1 (North) constituency

Greece’s competitive advantages, coupled with our government’s determination and commitment to reforms, are setting the conditions for sustainable growth for all I 12 I

Addressing the economic repercussions of the sanitary crisis Greece’s effective handling of the Covid-19 sanitary crisis pleasantly surprised the international community. The government and the people of Greece alike showed that when unity prevails we can weather even the most challenging crises. But there is still a lot to be done, of course. The Covid-19 crisis is resulting in an economic crisis, and our government’s main concern is to mitigate its impact not only on Greece’s economic output, but also on the most vulnerable citizens. The Ministry of Environment and Energy has been playing and will continue to play a key role in meeting these objectives. In the energy sector for example, our primary concern during the sanitary crisis was to ensure the uninterrupted supply of electricity, gas and gasoline. We also encouraged and assisted electricity and gas suppliers in introducing discount packages for households, businesses and the industry. At the same time, we ensured that energy suppliers can provide all of their services to consumers online. We have also taken steps to support the industry and energy companies in particular. We are in the process of reaching an agreement with the European Commission on the so-called interruptibility, as well as the Τransitory Flexibility Remuneration Mechanism (TFRM). They are two crucial agreements for a large part of our industry. We are also considering additional actions supporting the industry and the sector’s employees, such as: The introduction of a new, lower rate for the system-use charges of the

energy-intensive industry; the creation of a compensation mechanism, to be funded by (up to 20% of ) the revenues from auctions of tradable pollution rights; and, the establishment of a new PSO mechanism that will take into account especially the needs of medium-voltage users. We are also discussing further measures with the Ministry of Finance. However, in addition to handling the immediate consequences of Covid-19, we are also planning the future: That is why we recently passed the environmental bill which simplifies licensing while placing particular emphasis on environmental protection. This is why we also introduced a bill promoting electromobility, a policy which will propel the country into the era of green commuting. Further, we will soon submit the bill for the withdrawal of single use plastics starting July 2021, actively demonstrating our concern for the environment. We are also working on an urban planning bill, which will lay the foundations for accelerating growth in the construction, real estate, and tourism sectors and beyond. Finally, we are working on a National Reforestation Plan, aiming for the country to finally adopt a reforestation policy. Greece’s competitive advantages, coupled with our government’s determination and commitment to reforms, are setting the conditions for sustainable growth for all. Through the initiatives described herein, the Ministry of Environment and Energy aspires to be a key player in this effort to navigate Greece back to growth and prosperity.

Adonis Georgiadis Minister of Development & Investments

Greece has gone from cautionary tale to paradigm, and this has a multiplier effect on our reputation and becomes a tailwind for our economy. I 14 I

We are open for business and we will deliver The 2020 edition of “The Diamonds of the Greek economy” coincides with a new era for Greece, as our country has emerged a success story of the coronavirus pandemic receiving a lot of praise by international media for managing the COVID 19 crisis in an exemplary manner. Greece has gone from cautionary tale to paradigm, and this has a multiplier effect on our reputation and becomes a tailwind for our economy. For instance, there are clear indications that despite no one could predict if it will be a new wave of Covid-19, the demand for investments in Greece is steady and strong as foreign and local investors have shown that they are remaining active even amid the lockdown. Although there is no doubt that 2020 will be a year of deep recession, our target is to achieve strong growth next year and onwards. In this aspect we have been tackling the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic with a comprehensive and dynamic plan of 24 billion euros for businesses and employees. Main pillars of this plan are a five-year state loan, called refundable advance payment, subsidizing of the interest of business loans for five months, suspension of tax and social security obligations for households and enterprises for the entire period of the health crisis, working capital loans with either subsidized interest rate or guarantee up to 80% by the Hellenic Development Bank, reduction of the corporate income tax for companies in sectors damaged by the pandemic. We are determined to take any further necessary measure supporting enterprises

and employees and of course to gain the positive momentum for Greek economy implementing new bold forward-looking reforms, further reductions to taxes and social security contributions, privatizations and public-private partnerships (PPP) that will contribute to more investments and well-paid jobs and further improvement of business environment. Furthermore, we are preparing a concrete plan for optimizing the use and the blueprint to the economy of the grants, combined and not overlap, from both EU’s Recovery Fund and the new Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-27, known in Greece as ESPA. These grants will give the fiscal leeway that the coronavirus crisis has deprived us. Digital transformation, green growth and smart entrepreneurship, mainly concerning innovation in production, are our basic priorities in order to support our enterprises, especially the so called “Diamonds of the Greek Economy”. On the occasion, I would like to congratulate the visionary, bold and successful Greek businessmen who run their businesses effectively and show social responsibility, especially in these turbulent times. I would also like to congratulate the authors of this special edition for their effort. So, our key message to enterprises and would-be investors worldwide is clear: Despite the difficulties of COVID 19 crisis, we are on track in fulfilling our main target to transform Greece to one of the more business-friendly countries in the world. We mean what we say. We are open for business. We respect your money and time. And we will deliver.

Theodoros Tryfon President, Panhellenic Union of Pharmaceutical Industries

The Greek pharmaceutical industry has presented specific proposals regarding the financing of the pharmaceutical care system ensuring its viability I 16 I

Urgent need to map out a national strategic plan Undoubtedly, the COVID 19 pandemic not only exerted an unprecedented pressure to the world’s health systems, exposing their weaknesses and testing their limits and capacities, but also highlighted the need for drastic changes in our economies by re-shaping the socioeconomics of employment, manufacturing, supply chain infrastructures and transport logistics. Specifically, with regard to the area of health, the crisis has led many European governments to reflect over their policy priorities, pushing them to set new standards so as to ensure adequacy in critical sectors relating to their health systems’ effectiveness, such as medicines and health supplies. Europe was forced to re-evaluate the implications of its growing dependency on medicines produced in low-cost countries outside of the EU. As the pandemic disrupted the pharmaceutical market supply chain, many European countries with well-organized health systems found themselves struggling to meet the peaking pharmaceutical demand, even for essential medicines. On the contrary, Greece did not face such a problem, mainly due to the resilience of the Greek pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, which, amidst extremely difficult conditions, guaranteed that more than three million patients would have uninterrupted access to all necessary medicines. It is widely recognized that Greece has so far taken the right decisions to effectively weather the health aspects of the pandemic in an exemplary way. Nevertheless, the crisis has a tremendous negative effect for Greece and the European economies in terms of GDP contraction, unemployment, and public

revenue collapse. To address these challenges, Europe has proposed a recovery fund worth €750 billion, to help countries weather the painful recession triggered by Covid-19. Adapting to this new reality, Greece is required to design and implement a national development policy which on the one hand would ensure the country’s adequacy in strategic infrastructure and goods and on the other would focus on extroverted, internationally competitive economic sectors that invest in and stimulate employment and create economic added value. In that context, the role of the Greek pharmaceutical manufacturing industry is particularly important, adding to the resilience of the health system, ensuring the coverage of pharmaceutical needs and contributing to economic growth. The Greek pharmaceutical industry has presented specific proposals regarding the financing of the pharmaceutical care system ensuring its viability. At the same time, it is necessary to remove the abusive economic burden of the clawback that currently lead to a direct and indirect over-taxation of the Greek pharmaceutical companies which sums up to almost 70% of their annual turnover. This has a series of negative effects as it hinders its competitiveness and deprives resources being allocated for the implementation of their investment planning in coming years. We strongly believe that this crisis can become an opportunity for the development of Greece’s pharmaceutical industry, a feasible goal with positive consequences for the health system, the economy and the Greek patient.

Athanasios Savvakis President, Federation of Industries of Greece

Measures to be taken the “day after”: Positions and proposals by SBE The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted a major problem for Greece, that of selecting specific growth priorities which would make the country less vulnerable to international turmoil such as this one. The Federation of Industries of Greece (SBE) believes that priority should be given to strengthening the manufacturing sector, in order for the country to be in line with the global experience, which would certainly lead to the development of the country’s productive base. In turn, this would result in Greece experiencing milder negative effects than today, should a similar crisis occur again. To help realign Greece to the forefront of growth policies the ‘day after,’ SBE developed and published eight (8) sets of proposals, as follows:

SBE believes that priority should be given to strengthening the manufacturing sector, in order for the country to be in line with the global experience I 18 I

1. Increase liquidity by subsidizing interest rates on loans, suspension of repayments for companies whose sales have dropped more than 30%, extension of the period for advance payments in May to include June and July, reimbursement of 80% of VAT to exporting companies, and ensuring the additional inclusion of joint loans in the favorable liquidity support measures. 2. Maintenance of jobs - Employer contribution subsidy program: SBE proposes that social security contributions by employers be subsidized by at least 30%. 3. Payment of business dues to the State: because companies are clearly unable to pay their dues to the State, and since such dues will accumulate and require payment in June, SBE proposes that they be postponed for three months. At the same time, SBA proposes the nonpayment of the advance tax for 2020, as

well as the subsidy of social insurance contributions and the correction of the problem of bounced checks, by rewarding consistent companies. 4. Rationalization and adjustment of the measure “Suspension of Employment Contract”: businesses should be allowed to terminate the 15-day suspension period without penalty, paying the employee normally in accordance with their contract for non-working days. 5. Official establishment of flexi-time: SBE proposes that the current measure of “suspension” could be complemented by an additional measure so that companies would also have the right to choose their own flexible working hours (flexitime) in the form of 4 and/or 6 hours of employment. 6. Special provisions for the proportional support of large enterprises: SBE proposes the establishment of special measures to support the liquidity of large enterprises through: government guarantees and loan interest rate subsidy, short-term securing of export credit and special subsidy programs for employee insurance contributions. 7. Restarting the economy through investment, by resolving all outstanding issues within the upcoming financial quarter for most of the “private investment strategies” so that their implementation can go ahead. 8. Resolve chronic problems experienced by industry, such as: reducing income tax rates, abolishing unduly paid fees and taxes, reducing insurance premiums that are now unbearable, reducing energy costs, opening up the banking system to provide liquidity to healthy and viable businesses, and establishing a more favorable investment regime.

DIAMONDS OF THE GREEK ECONOMY

2020

Christoforos Sardelis Chairman of Ethniki Insurance

A well-known but neglected truth is that the insurance industry is the largest, most stable, and long-term institutional investor in the world I 20 I

The challenges of the post-Covid-19 era The transformation of the Greek production model has been and remains the big issue since the eruption of the previous crisis, that of double deficits. The primary budget deficit exceeded 10% of the GDP, while the current account balance was close to 15% of the GDP. Both deficits were linked to a deeper problem, however, that of insufficient savings. Much of the consumption, and particularly investment, were financed by external borrowing. At the present juncture, efforts to revive investment without heavy reliance on external funding, inevitably turns to a discussion about the prospects of the insurance market. Because the insurance industry is the industry that specializes in savings management globally. But it is also so much more than that. A welldeveloped insurance industry protects the economy from several risks, without which investment returns become more predictable. Unfortunately, Greece is the most underinsured country in Europe, if not the entire developed world, with annual insurance premiums of only 2% of the GDP, while the European average is almost fourfold and in some countries six-fold. The nexus between growth and the size of the insurance market is very well documented in the academic literature. The reasons are obvious. First, rapid recovery from adverse or catastrophic events allows for a return to normality in a relatively short period of time. This perspective boosts the confidence of both consumers and entrepreneurs, leaving more room for purely business ventures. Also, a well-functioning

underwriting process improves the overall risk management, since, through differentiation of premiums, it can reward prevention and create disincentives for indifference. Finally, a well-known but neglected truth is that the insurance industry is the largest, most stable, and long-term institutional investor in the world. Invested capital - which in Greece amounts to 14 billion euros or 7.5% of the GDP, but in developed markets exceeds 100% of the GDP - is the money of the insured, especially in the Life sector, which professionals with expertise and experience manage on their behalf. In conclusion, a boost in the insurance market should not be considered as a traditional branch request, but as a structural reform that can contribute to domestic investment and to a better functioning of the economy in general. It should, in my opinion, be integrated into the agenda productivity improvement and extroversion. This becomes even more compelling when we know that the demographic problem is lurking and could lead to a new fiscal derailment. The fact that in 25-30 years we are expected to face a dead-end, does not mean that the markets will not be nervous and cautious, seeing that we are indifferent to such a well-known and predictable risk. The funds that appear to be available in a few months due to Covid-19 are, in my opinion, a golden opportunity to accelerate such reforms. By adequately supporting effective demand and the sectors affected by the pandemic, room is made for reforms promoting economic efficiency. This is a difficult balance, but we must dare to do so.

Ioulia Kl. Tseti President & CEO, Tsetis Pharmaceutical Group of Companies (OFET) and member of Board of Directors of SEV

Tsetis Pharmaceuticals Group (OFET) has demonstrated that it can effectively stand up to tough and urgent circumstances, and such strong challenges only rejuvenate it! I 22 I

OFET’s role in the global challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic The COVID-19 pandemic that we experienced and which affected Greece and the entire planet, was capable of awakening and exerting an entirely catalytic effect on everyone. The world has certainly changed, and the sooner we realize this, the better. And like any change, the one we have just experienced – like every change that results in profound progress, involves anguish and challenges. The pandemic was not simply a severe health crisis that threatened almost all health systems, even the most powerful ones, but at the same time it was a wake-up call that brought to the surface the serious shortcomings, failures and weaknesses of the whole of Europe, demonstrating a grave necessity: The time has come for the European Union to become self-sufficient, more resilient and socially aware, and when that happens, it will be able to function truly in solidarity and equality with its members. Modern societies need solidarity as well as an organizational structure that will support their weakest members, and at the same time be able to breathe life into businesses and the industrial fabric of each country so that they can operate smoothly. This is because without production, there is no tomorrow; there can be no strong economies and no strong prosperous countries. Industrial chimneys, though reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s, are what conveys the message for a really good day ahead in the field of economy and growth. The pandemic has proved that all fields are fully connected in our time: public health, society, economy, entrepreneurship, work environment.

And precisely because many constants of the modern world have been threatened, we must seriously learn from the lessons left by this serious public health crisis: the need for organization, long-term forecasting, building resilience, the need for cooperation and forming alliances, selfsufficiency and adequate funding. The right to health but also to equal access by all citizens to services, healthcare and treatment is one of them. Health, individual and collective, is not only a good and a social right, but at the same time an integral part of our culture. The pharmaceutical industry has taken the lead in the global challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic. Tsetis Pharmaceuticals Group (OFET) has demonstrated that it can effectively stand up to tough and urgent circumstances, and such strong challenges only rejuvenate it! The two major donations of Unikinon (chloroquine) and antiseptics made by OFET companies Uni-Pharma & InterMed to the Greek healthcare system, are nothing more than our debt to the community and patients in times of need. A debt stemming from OFET’s Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy. The world has changed and the healthy “fuel” for the day after both in Greece and around the world will be the need for even greater focusing on the digital transformation, the 4th Industrial Revolution, continuous Research, Technology and Development, but also policies that support the viability of health systems, businesses, production and environmental protection and climate change. And all of the above, under the signature of Responsibility and Ethical Entrepreneurship!

Konstantinos Michalos President of the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI)

In recent months, in the face of a severe challenge, Greece has managed to overturn many negative stereotypes of the past. I 24 I

Planning the next day The period we are currently going through is unprecedented and extremely critical for Greece. The country was among those that managed to successfully deal with the Covid-19 pandemic so far, thanks to timely action by the State, but also the responsible attitude of the vast majority of citizens and businesses. Now, the country is facing an equally tough challenge: restarting its economy. In order for Greece to benefit from the global economy’s return to growth, and bolster its resilience to future crises, it must now seek a transition to a new, extroverted production model: a new growth model based on the production of internationally marketable, competitive goods and services. Securing funds totaling 50 billion euros from the Next Generation EU program and the NSRF 2021-2027, is a great opportunity for the country to take faster steps in this direction. It is critical, therefore, for the development planning of the new period to focus, on the one hand, on overcoming specific structural problems of the Greek economy, and on the other on the emergence of dynamic sectors, which can utilize the country’s competitive advantages. In this context, it is vital that a less fragmented production base be established, based on larger- and medium-sized enterprises with prospects for sustainability and growth. Through incentives promoting business growth and mergers of small businesses, larger enterprises could be created that will be able to access innovation, attract specialized personnel and enhance their extroversion and bargaining power. Equally important is the acceleration of the state and the economy’s digital transformation, through the implementation of a comprehensive

strategy for the creation of a digital Public Administration, with the development of financial instruments and incentives for investments in digital upgrades by companies, the creation of support networks specifically for SMEs, and investing in lifelong learning to enhance the digital skills of the country’s human resources. Another strategic goal is to make up for the the Greek economy’s innovation deficit by strengthening the knowledge triangle, i.e. supporting capable research teams in the country’s universities and research centers, creating innovation nodes, and providing incentives to attract investment from large companies. Targeted incentives and financial instruments should also be developed to advance innovative business ideas and encourage investment in high technology, innovative solutions and applications, with an emphasis on dynamic sectors such as manufacturing, green energy, transportation and logistics, the agrifood sector and tourism through the promotion of alternative forms. Finally, it is self-evident that these development interventions should be combined with the acceleration and completion of necessary reforms in taxation and the insurance system, education, the health system, the operation of public administration, etc. In recent months, in the face of a severe challenge, Greece has managed to overturn many negative stereotypes of the past. The same should be done now, in the face of the new, major national bet. With a vision, a plan, and understanding and cooperation, our country can release its productive forces in the coming years and ensure conditions of growth and prosperity for the current and future generations.

Dr. Georgios Konstantopoulos President, Greek Exporters Association (SEVE)

We proved as a country that we have many capabilities and we can deal with the economic crisis in the same way we handled the hygiene crisis: effectively and decisively I 26 I

Diamonds are forever, but they shine even more during periods of crisis Diamonds are forever, but they shine even more during periods of crisis. The coronavirus pandemic brought out our weaknesses, but also proved the strength of the Greek economy. This crisis designated the potential of key sectors that can be an “ace in the hole” by not just getting through this difficult time, but by also creating a new perspective for the economic future of Greece. And nothing of this happened by accident. During the past few months, Greek producers and exporters built a strong relationship of trust with their international partners, showing to the rest of the world that Greek exporting enterprises are 100% reliable. Despite the multiple difficulties, they exported their products all over the world with consistency in the delivery time, price stability, and full respect for consumer needs. Greek exporters followed the hygiene rules and the lockdown restrictions to the letter, but also continued doing business worldwide keeping track of international news and updates. Above all, they thoroughly observed the sanitation protocol for COVID-19, taking care of the workforce and especially the vulnerable groups. In order to effectively deal with the crisis, the government cooperated flawlessly with the enterprises, looking into the future and the development of the economy. Of course, Greek enterprises are totally aware of the capabilities of our economy and the problems the banking system is facing and hence they are not expecting the solutions to show up as “a

deus ex machina”. On the contrary, they constantly plan and schedule their next entrepreneurial steps responsibly, in order to help the Greek economy evolve, within a stable economic and political environment, avoiding turning backs and mistakes of the past. The European way of thinking and living is the compass in this difficult juncture we are living in. We have to trust the European mechanism for the financial support and show solidarity for the member countries of the European south, which have been severely affected by the pandemic. This is the only way to a bright European future, in which everybody fits in equally. The diamonds of the Greek economy might suspend their glow for a while as international shows and exhibitions are postponed, but their presence in the digital international shows will be equally bright. Executives are holding videoconferences on a daily basis with their customers all over the world and keep a close eye on the progression of the pandemic situation and the competition, in order to respond to the challenges and adapt to the changes. “A good captain is not made from calm seas.” We proved as a country that we have many capabilities and we can deal with the economic crisis in the same way we handled the hygiene crisis: effectively and decisively. We strongly believe in the capabilities of the Greek economy, and there is no better time than now to create a promising economic future based on an exportoriented plan.

Now is the critical moment to turn this crisis into an opportunity I 28 I

Manufacturing Now! The first half of 2020 was marked by the unprecedented COVID 19 pandemic crisis which has affected the entire planet, putting to test our resistance at all levels. Protection of human life and health has been the utmost, non-negotiable priority. In our country, the early lockdown decision was decisive in containing the pandemic and achieving low levels of incidents and deaths. We have demonstrated a collective maturity which needs to be continued as we open up our country to visitors from all over the world, but also in order to overcome the numerous serious effects on our economy and society in general. Unfortunately, our country is expected to be affected a little more seriously than others, due to the fact that our economy relies to a very large extent on tourism and related services. Governments all over the world are taking measures to support the affected companies and sectors and to mitigate the crisis, with the emphasis being on people and jobs. In doing so, they are also reconsidering the role of the manufacturing industry. To this extent, we believe that this discussion is even more important in the context of our country, in order to contain the recession and restart our economy on a more solid and sustainable basis. Tourism is a very important sector, especially for a country like Greece. Yet, it is also extremely vulnerable to external threats like the current pandemic, but also geopolitical turbulences, environmental issues etc. In an ever changing world and a globalized economy affected by various

unpredictable threats and technological disruptions, focusing most of the country’s efforts and resources to a single and particularly vulnerable service sector is not wise. This is something we have painfully come to realize for the second time during the past ten years. Moreover, no economy can fully enjoy technological advancements and be strong without a healthy manufacturing base. Alongside its considerable investment in research and innovation, and despite its relatively low participation in our GDP, manufacturing has a strong multiplier effect. Being one of the largest employers in the country, with well-paid jobs, industrial manufacturing can contribute to restrain brain drain, or even become the driver of brain re-gain. Now is the critical moment to turn this crisis into an opportunity. Now is our country’s last chance to adjust its growth strategy towards a strong and competitive manufacturing sector, leveraging on our country’s excellent human capital and talent, to enhance production of internationally tradeable high added value products. Working alongside the government, policy makers and all stakeholders, “Hellenic Production - Industry Roundtable for Growth” will contribute in every possible way to help the recovery of the Greek economy and the welfare of our society. No economy will remain the same in the post-Covid-19 era. With this fact in mind, our aim is not only to maintain Greek manufacturing capacity, but also to help it reach a sufficient size and competitiveness level in order to play a key role in the restart and re-boost of the Greek economy.

Mr. Dimitris Mathios President, Association of Industries in Attica & Piraeus (SVAP)

The strengthening of domestic production and the preference of products made in Greece will indeed become a realistic stimulus to respond to any future crisis I 30 I

National strategy to support domestic production In our campaign to defend the economy against the multifaceted attacks by the financial crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic, we believe that it is the right time to bring solutions to the problems that plague society as a whole. The benefits of Greece’s industrial production are multiple and extremely significant. First of all, job creation and the economic viability of employees are reflected in the whole of society. Thus, the finances of other companies are also strengthened, while increasing the social insurance contributions collected by the state to meet existing needs. If one looks at it individually, perhaps this benefit may not seem as significant. However, if profit is multiplied by the number of people employed in each unit of industrial production, then things change. The larger the unit, the greater the benefits. It is necessary to emphasize the enormous importance of self-sufficiency for a country. Although no country can be 100% selfsufficient and meet its needs as a whole without the need for imports, meeting a percentage of these needs from domestic production is in any case positive. That is why it is necessary to develop a strong industrial presence. We believe that in this most critical turning point the country is experiencing, it is necessary to intensify the struggle for the preference of Greek products. The primary and secondary sectors of an economy are of utmost importance to any country. We have to revitalize the production process - this is a national need. There should be help from the distribution side

as well. There needs to be support to products and the Greek companies that produce them. Businesses should neither be over-taxed, nor be hunted down. In Greece, the continuous abandonment of manufacturing and the negativity towards entrepreneurship had taken root in the mentality of the State, the laws, procedures, public debate and political priorities, with the result being a dramatic shrinking of manufacturing in recent years. This development, combined with the low competitiveness of Greece’s economy, led to a skyrocketing deficit in the foreign trade balance, which combined with fiscal derailment, made the country highly vulnerable to any international crisis. In spite of the additional difficulties it faced, the Greek industry showed remarkable resilience during the financial crisis. Owing to its high multiplier effects, such resilience still has a crucial contribution to the economy and society today, despite its low share of GDP because: ● The industrial sector creates employment for about 1.2 million workers (direct, indirect and causal effect). That is, one in four employees are employed in industrial activities or in activities due to industry. ● The industrial sector contributes 40% of legal entities’ total income tax, while even during the crisis period it made investments valued at more than €50 billion. The strengthening of domestic production and the preference of products made in Greece will indeed become a realistic stimulus to respond to any future crisis.

Rapid development for all: Structural changes in the development model and national reconstruction of the production web After having successfully dealt with the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, compared to many other countries, Greece is now facing an equally major challenge: restarting its economy. This is an extremely difficult and complex endeavor, both nationally and locally. The economic problems caused throughout the country, require the planning of a new national strategy - in the post-Covid-19 era - to uplift all the economic sectors that have comparative advantages in order to help the economy get back on a growth path. The three axes of transformation of the European industry, which support the entire productive fabric of the economy, but mainly small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and make the productive structure sustainable and competitive, are the following: The digital transition, which allows industry and SMEs to respond to change in a timely manner, providing employees with new perspectives; Competitiveness on the global setting, where Europe -with the Single Market as a lever- can establish global standards; The green transition and the new energy strategy, given that the European Green Deal is Europe’s new development strategy. A specific and measurable goal should be for the industry’s share in the country’s GDP to increase from its current 10-11 percent to 15-16 percent in a decade. The

industry does not need a separate growth accelerator. The need is rather to focus on a new, inclusive growth plan, leaving no one behind. This effort has two critical parameters. The first is to set goals: goals that are measurable and will confirm every step made. The second has to do with competitiveness: we need an industry that can effectively deal with competition around the world. This requires incentives to provide businesses with the necessary impetus, irrespective of their size, to dare and continue investing in an industry that has a lot to offer. The crisis we are currently going through is not the last chance for the industry. There are companies that, despite difficulties, manage to play a leading role internationally. However, it is certainly a great opportunity for the country to revise its course and create a new, sustainable National Development Plan by overcoming bureaucracy problems, through fast track licensing and equal opportunities for all aspiring investors. This is an opportunity not to be missed. In the context of the national reconstruction required for economic growth as a result of the global Covid-19 crisis, there are two important parameters that make up the final equation: National production at industrial, manufacturing and primary levels, and the maximum possible business synergies.

Greek Food Industry: Resilient through the pandemic During the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, the Greek Food & Drink Industry has shown resilience and has made major efforts to ensure that all citizens can continue having access to safe, affordable and high-quality food and drink products. Throughout this tough period, our main goal has been to ensure a sufficient market supply; we managed to respond successfully to the needs of the market and consumers, in collaboration with all stakeholders in the food value chain and the authorities. Special recognition and gratitude should be expressed to all the people working in our Industry, mainly the front-liners, who have kept the food supply chain working. At the same time, as in all countries in Europe, our Industry had to face important challenges. Availability and transport of raw materials, ingredients, packaging and packaging materials necessary for the production process, were all affected. Uncertainty, transportation obstacles and border-crossing complications negatively impacted our exports. Obviously, the closure of large segments of the food service sector (restaurants, hotels, bars, cafeterias, etc.) resulted in a drastic drop in sales by certain food and drink manufacturers. In order to overcome these difficulties and find the appropriate solutions, our Federation worked closely with the concerned Ministries and the EU Food

Industry Confederation. However, the resilience demonstrated must be further enhanced to prepare for other significant challenges that are on our doorstep. In a rapidly changing, highly demanding and globalized framework, the food sector is called upon to assess and follow the evolutions at international, European and national levels. The focus is lately mainly put on socioeconomic sustainability, as this is also foreseen in the European Green Deal, a new EU growth strategy. Circular economy, climate neutrality, food sufficiency, food waste, product reformulation, food quality and safety, are all issues of concern and discussion that require responsible action. In this context, the commitment to growth of the Greek Food Industry is indisputable, and the priority put on our consumers, products and the sustainability of the food sector is non-negotiable. Our Industry is a major player in the Greek manufacturing Industry and a major pillar of the domestic economy, in terms of turnover, added value and productivity, and a key job provider. It is a dynamic, competitive, robust and extrovert sector, ready to seize new challenges and opportunities. All the above factors make the Food Industry a driving force that can highly contribute to the return to growth of the Greek economy, especially during the post-pandemic period.

Dimitris P. Giannakopoulos President of BoD & CEO VIANEX S.A.

It is essential that pharmaceutical spending be amended to realistic levels, based on the real needs of the country’s population I 36 I

The Covid-19 pandemic as Greece’s last chance to amend drug policy Across Europe, at the top of the agenda of a debate between political and social partners is the strengthening of health systems, so that they can effectively respond to severe health crises, such as the current COVID-19, and others that may appear in the future. The pandemic uncovered certain weaknesses that had not previously been identified as being urgent, such as safeguarding the availability of highdemand pharmaceuticals during the crisis. It also multiplied the problems of European health systems, which existed long before the outbreak of Covid-19. In the case of Greece, health problems were already known as they had intensified during the recent years of austerity and financial crisis, as a result of a steep reduction in state funding. The country has an underfunded healthcare system that only marginally meets the increased needs of citizens, let alone emergencies. The successful management of the first phase of the pandemic was the result of strict citizen isolation measures and the heroic efforts of healthcare professionals, rather than of the healthcare system’s effectiveness. The “lifeline” of Greek governments in all previous years to the present day has always been the private health care, whether in the form of costs being covered by patients themselves or by the private sector, especially the pharmaceutical industry. Medicines are an integral part of the health system. Therefore, in the effort to reform the NHS and strengthen the health system as a whole, pharmaceutical policy is also a priority. One of the most important interventions proposed by the industry, and the most urgent one for the viability of pharmaceutical companies, is the amendment of pharmaceutical spending and the reduction of clawback.

The total burden on the industry as a result of the mandatory rebates and clawback in 2019, is estimated at more than 1.7 billion euros (hospital and outpatient expenditure). The trend for 2020 is even worse, as an increase of 45% is recorded in the first quarter compared to the same period a year earlier. The total amount that pharmaceutical companies will be asked to pay for 2020 is estimated to be close to 2.0 billion euros. At the same time, the state’s pharmaceutical spending on the outpatient market remains “frozen” at 1.945 billion euros. It is essential that pharmaceutical spending be amended to realistic levels, based on the real needs of the country’s population. It is also necessary to alleviate it from other categories of expenditure, such as the vaccine-related prevention, social support and welfare, which should take care of covering uninsured citizens. The cost of vaccines is estimated at 200 million euros, while costs for the uninsured is at 290 million euros, for 2019. Especially under the conditions of the pandemic, the creation of separate funds to be allocated for vaccinations should have already been under way by the government. The current situation, in view of the European support package, is perhaps the last chance for Greece to amend its distorted pharmaceutical policy, and to use European funds to support the health system as a whole, without exception. The pharmaceutical industry should have the place it deserves in the growth plan that Greece will submit. After all, the European industry has been cooperating with the European Commission and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) throughout the crisis, and continues to do so for building sustainable medicine policies for the next day. Our country should follow suit.

COVID-19 The influence on the Greek-Chinese commercial relations Since January 2020, the global community has been called upon to deal with the pandemic of the third decade of this century. We are no longer talking about economic growth, but rather to what extent has the global economy been affected by COVID-19. On the one hand, in recent years we have experienced an improving and growing global economy that has brought distant countries, such as Greece and China, closer together; on the other hand, we have witnessed, the risk of an epidemic lurking in the global system. Every time a new epidemic strikes humanity , mechanisms and practices improve, and to some extent reduce the spread, but these are still not enough. In comparison to SARS, China took urgent measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as well as to cure most of the patients. However, due to the Chinese New Year’s Eve, the spread of the pandemic became inevitable. We saw the majority of countries be severely hit one after another by the new Coronavirus, most of them regardless of geographical location, and we also witnessed thousands of human losses as a result of misplaced decisions taken by the governments. However, Greece managed to stand on its feet and protect its citizens from both the virus and other serious issues such as immigration. The Greek government has succeeded effectively with the challenges we face. This also motivates us to wish to make a contribution to moving forward all together. Fortunately, this period, although it is very difficult, is very advanced technologically, providing the world the appropriate equipment. As a result, although we have to stay away from each other, we seem to be closer than ever before. The solution is to remain cautious, patient and calm. Approaching the present we are observing the evolution in several fields, being organized, technologically equipped with common goals. These common goals

are nothing else but the new start of the progressive development. On the occasion of the 48th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Greece and China on June 5, 1972 and the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hellenic Chinese Chamber, we held on June 5th, 2020 the First HCCI Webinar entitled “Greek-Chinese Commercial Relations – Opportunities and Challenges after Covid-19,” with keynote speakers the Chinese Ambassador Ms. Zhang Qiyue and the Greek Foreign Ministry General Secretary for International Economic Relations & Extroversion Mr. Grigoris Dimitriadis. The Webinar was also attended by Greek Ambassadors, Presidents of Sectoral Chambers and Organizations, as well as world-renowned Entrepreneurs. In her speech, the Chinese Ambassador Ms. Zhang Qiyue underlined the fact that the main goal of China regarding the internal administration is to maintain the job positions and eliminate the extreme poverty levels. She referred to five (5) pillars: Big Data, Live Streaming, IOT, 5G, and UHV power transmission, while she announced that in 2021 there will be a wave of investments, stressing that she wished Chinese investors to be treated objectively. In addition, she referred to the importance of China’s “One Belt One Road,” as well as to the success of the Piraeus port to take the 25th place universally, the need for E-Commerce, and the need to cooperate even closer, so as to move towards the development all together. The Hellenic Chinese Chamber has the means to unite the voices of all, to support the unity and the common path to a better future, to help both its members and those involved in bilateral relations, giving the opportunity for fruitful cooperation.

The Franco-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and Industry is playing an active role in transforming business opportunities into reality I 40 I

Greece: a new land of opportunities for investors in the era of Coronavirus? The actual environment is an opportunity to demonstrate once again, how tied are the long lasting collaborative relations binding Greece and France. In particular, in matters of trade and investments we can observe steady increasing trends. In 2019, bilateral trade between our two countries increased by 12.4%, for a volume representing €3.6 bn. Greek exports showed a rising trend of 17.6% compared to 2018, with a total of €1.2 bn. French imports to Greece also increased in 2019 by 10% for a volume of €2.4 bn. Regarding the composition of Greek products exported, we have drugs on top of the list, followed by aluminum plates and stripes, copper pipes and tubes and fresh fish. Regarding the French presence in Greece, there are about 120 French companies, representing more than 15.000 employees, active in several key sectors like aerospace, agriculture, alcohols, automotive leasing, lubricants and oil & gas, infrastructures, construction, defense, energy, insurance, mining, pharmacy.... Most of these companies are established locally since decades and are deeply involved in the development of the Hellenic economy through longterm partnerships with both private and public actors. The success of the “Business Forum” organized by the Franco-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and Industry last January in Paris, has proven the attractiveness of the Greek market for French investors, both major or SMEs companies and the excellent bilateral relations between the two countries, concluded by the signature of a “Declaration of intention for FrancoHellenic Economic Partnerships”. Existing bilateral trade and investments are undeniable foundations to enhance collaborations further despite the adverse context of Covid-19 crisis. The results of the recent survey conducted by the

Chamber measuring the crisis impact among its members are rather reassuring. Although 92% of them are impacted by the crisis, less than a third think that it may jeopardize the economic viability of their business in Greece, if it would continue. Over 70% think that new promising sectors and opportunities can occur in Greece post crisis and 52% that it could even be favorable for Greek exports (mainly drugs, services and agricultural products). Finally, all of the surveyed companies replied that the actual crisis will not affect the bilateral economic and trade relations between the two countries but on the contrary it will strengthen them. Greece has all the necessary assets – geographic position, being an Eurozone member, offering highly educated salesforce, being competitive – in order to take advantage of the newly emerging situation. Many European countries and major companies are thinking of relocation, to decrease dependency from non-European production zones and to shorten distribution circuits. This is therefore the right time to tight even further European links, by finalizing the necessary administrative reforms, accelerating the privatization and development program, promoting PPP, simplifying bidding processes and tax environment to (re) develop primary and secondary sectors, while diversifying services, specifically on digitalization. In many sectors, French groups are world leaders and are willing to collaborate with Greek partners. The Franco-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and Industry is playing an active role in transforming business opportunities into reality. Greek and French Entrepreneurs can rely on the political support from both sides, in order to materialize the numerous potentialities emerging from this crisis into concrete achievements.

Greek-German economic relations amidst COVID-19 Covid-19 has created new circumstances for the national, European and global economies. Markets in every corner of the globe are already experiencing the effects of the pandemic and are looking for treatments to cure the symptoms, most notably the deep recession, the closure of businesses and the big blow to employment. Going through its own ordeal, the European Union is making efforts for its fastest and with the least possible consequences return to normality, i.e. return to positive growth rates, through a targeted economic support program. According to the ECB, Eurozone recession this year will range from 8% to 12%. The Commission has already agreed on a really brave €750-billion aid package through the recovery fund, to be decided by member states leaders. This package will be in addition to approx. €1.1 trillion of aid through the Multiannual Financial Framework, as well as the ECB’s government bond buying program valued at €1.35 trillion. For Greece, the wager is threefold and relates to: ● Proper management of the aid totaling €32 billion through the recovery fund, as well as the aid that will come through other EU channels. ● Proper management of the €33 billion allocated to Greece through the ECB’s Greek bond repurchase program. ● T he composure the business community is called upon to show in order to avoid the worst. The solution that the market is called upon to provide is not impossible. After all, it has not been long since the country’s debt crisis, which taught us that only through determination, willpower and courage can we be led to solutions. This time, however, Greece is neither alone, nor isolated; in the past year, the country’s methodic and

careful steps led it to win one battle after another and finally enjoy the confidence of investors. The fact that the current government is oriented towards business on the one hand - judging by the new government culture it has established - and, on the other, on society – considering the effective way it handled the pandemic crisis, shows that beyond all adversity, the country is moving in the right direction. The Greek-German Chamber and the German business community have been following a similar path since 2009, when the country’s 10-year debt crisis erupted, unceasingly supporting the Greek economy. They are doing the same today, so that the Covid-19 crisis becomes an opportunity. The Chamber, in particular, keeps open a constructive channel of communication with the productive ministries, conveying the Greek-German business community’s message to the Greek government. At the same time, the Chamber holds constant dialogue with Berlin in an effort to stimulate German investment interest in the country, in areas such as “green” energy, environmentally friendly waste management, research and technology, etc. To that end, it is intensifying B2B business contacts between the two countries, having already implemented 44 B2B contacts as part of the Berlin Hellenic-German Economic Forum in March 2020, and another 319 B2B meetings in June 2020, during the Hellenic-German Virtual Business Forum - Virtual B2B Meetings in Energy, Renewables, Environmental Technologies and Innovation. In addition, with a view to helping the market’s faster adaptation to Covid-19 normality and circumstances, the Chamber organizes a series of Webinars focusing on the labor sector, tax and legal issues, and crisis management.

Pharmacies in the face of the challenges of the COVID-19 era The unprecedented circumstances that our planet experienced during the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, highlighted the value and necessity not only of public health system structures, but also of the most specific factors in the health arena. These include the local, physical-location pharmacies, which will be called upon to play a more active role in the coming period, as they transform into “small health centers.” Drug stores have always been a key factor in providing primary health care in our country. Their role was further bolstered by their contribution to crisis management during the height of the pandemic and the quarantine. As a result of the ease of communication and access by any citizen to a health scientist, the significance and value of the local drug store became more noticeable. In addition, the pharmacist profession is among those that inspire high levels of trust in citizens. The courageous presence of the “next door” pharmacist helped the Greek society, especially patients in panic from the news and instructions bombardment. Pharmacists have been instrumental in helping us achieve the outstanding results of low spread levels, compared to other countries. During the lockdown period, citizens avoided visits to physicians and hospitals, for fear of the new coronavirus. Instead, they sought advice for the various health issues by the local drug store, which always had the door open and the mood for service, advice, information and explanation about the precautions against the pandemic, etc.

Pharmacies in the lockdown period were the only places that supplied critical health care material to the public, such as masks, antiseptics, etc. However, the most important thing was the instructions they offered to citizens for precautionary measures. Let us keep in mind that the continuous flow of information from the mass and social media was often confusing to ordinary citizens, especially the elderly. The outbreak of Covid19 - which many scientists believe “is here to stay” - may mark the beginning of a period of continuous, successive outbreaks of viruses and epidemics on our planet. This will change or rather overturn the operation mode of our society and the daily way of life and work. The above overturns will exacerbate social inequalities and economic challenges. In this new environment, local pharmacies – as opposed to online drug stores, will play a more critical role in public health and the community as a whole. In the coming years, the pharmacy model will undergo certain changes, as it will need to adapt to the new needs of the health system, such as the provision of augmented services for the care of patients. Physical-location pharmacies are gradually going digital, but they will always maintain a competitive advantage over other channels, as well as the nearby, human care for the management of the ever-increasing health needs of the population. Digital platforms and technology are essential tools in the modern world, but human problems also need people to be resolved.

Setting the priorities for the future of Greece’s economy and EFA GROUP The Covid-19 crisis we are currently facing on a collective and individual level is an unprecedented one, and therefore the responsibility today is greater than ever, to ensure a better tomorrow at all levels. Οur current fragile production model needs to change and focus on high value-added investments, the reorganization of the primary sector and industry, and the entire production spectrum. It is now a great opportunity for Greece to get back on its feet, more autonomous, less dependent and more competitive. Greece is a small market. However, several small- and medium-sized Greek companies have made the next step to increase their exports, as well as to “disembark” in foreign countries using the right artificial intelligence tools and adapting to different large foreign markets. The 4th Industrial Revolution facilitates this accessibility. Artificial intelligence, innovation and a global outlook (combined with smart business development) seem to have liberated Greek engineering. This way of thinking should inspire and guide us in creating a new brilliant normalcy, and not just bright exceptions. Abroad, the market is bigger, hence the benefits are multiplied for the Greek economy by investing in other countries, but always on the condition that headquarters remain in Greece. The mentality of extroversion is not unprecedented for Greeks. It has always been part of our DNA since ancient times, when Greeks did not travel only to trade, but created trading posts and ties with local communities, entered their markets and established colonies. In our group of companies, EFA GROUP, we try to put into practice what we stand for.

Extroversion, Innovation, Re-engineering I 46 I

EFA GROUP is a Greek Group of companies, specializing on services and production in software and high-tech products in the fields of aerospace, defense and security. The history of our GROUP began almost 25 years ago. During these years, we managed to export to more than 50 countries around the world, establishing offices in Athens, Kempen (Germany), Arlington (USA), Abu Dhabi, Singapore, and production lines of our products in the Middle and Far East. This year we hope to reach a total of €500 million in exports, the total sum of the past decade. Utilizing our many years of global experience in the field of international industrial cooperation, we invest in key parts of the world, not only focusing on simple exports, but landing abroad with establishment of companies, coproductions and strategic partnerships. The result is that for the first time in the Greek economic history, a Greek defense company, THEON SENSORS (night vision and thermal imaging systems), becomes the world leader in a specific niche (Night Vision end products) of the global defense industry. We believe that one more company of our Group, SCYTALYS, will be the next one to become a global leader in its software related niche, “Links” in particular. At the same time, taking into account the latest developments in the field of Aerospace, Defense and Security, EFA GROUP is currently in the process of further expanding its business activities, industrializing itself by investing in innovative solutions in emerging technology sectors, such as UAS, Artificial Intelligence technologies and Video Analytics.

Andreas Galanopoulos BoD Chairman, Pharmacists’ Supplying Cooperative of Attica (PROSYFAPE)

Profile of Pharmacists’ Supplying Cooperative of Attica PROSYFAPE (Pharmacist’s Supplying Cooperative of Attica) Group of companies operates in Greece for the last 40 years. Today it is the largest, dynamically growing, wholesale distributor of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical products and services in the Greek market. With the onset of the Covid-19 crisis, PROSYFAPE Group showed a high sense of corporate responsibility. From the very beginning, it proceeded with all the necessary adjustments not only to safeguard the health of its employees, pharmacists and partners, but also to ensure the uninterrupted running of its operations. In a very short time, it had to redesign the way it performs many of its daily operations, from the core ones such as the distribution and delivery of orders to pharmacies, to the auxiliary ones as, for example, the operation of air conditioners in its facilities. Moreover, it took precautionary measures by adopting remote communication applications, such as teleworking and teleconferencing, as well as remote education, through

This includes, for example, the relocation of the Corfu facilities to a new, larger and better equipped building of a floor space of 1,100sqm. At the same time, the renewal of the fleet of distribution vans and their conversion into refrigerated vehicles continues. Also, in progress are the installation of new, innovative fridge chambers, in the two Attica facilities and the completion of realtime temperature monitoring through the whole supply chain (from storage to the final point of distribution). Additionally, PROSYFAPE Group recently completed a software upgrade of its automatic sorting machines, and within 2020 expects to conclude the development of new information support tools for all of its pharmacies, such as the new electronic ordering platform (B2B).

Contributing to the sustainable growth of the national economy to overcome the Covid-19 challenge, we constantly invest and support our customers, people and society I 50 I

Transforming a crisis into an opportunity for the common good For over 35 years, Eurochartiki has been a leading force in paper tissue treatment and detergents production. Our company has always strived to develop superior quality products for the benefit of clients, employees, and the profitable growth of the market in which it operates. In this difficult time for the entire global population, the restructuring of the global economy is a fact and the coronavirus crisis drives us to think constructively about the future. Towards this humanitarian challenge, our 35 years of operation first and foremost ensures our position in the Greek market as a key player in meeting the needs of our society. Customer behaviour has changed prior accelerating trends, a severe drop in revenue was recorded, new technology trends have been placed as normality while uncontrollable operational disruptions came up. The risks and the opportunities that the crisis presents are plenty, and the unprepared Greek market is experiencing enormous anxieties. For Eurochartiki, this is not a threat but a challenge. It is a chance to increase our strength and commitment, to remain consistent to our principles and main focus. This is the time to act promptly and remain focused on our goal: to be the top and constantly growing company in the production of paper products and detergents in Greece that will respond with business success for customers, employees, shareholders and society.

Having invested in setting up a simple and flexible structure with efficient procedures, we are engaged in continuing protecting our people - including workforce and customers and stabilizing the supply chain. Contributing to the sustainable growth of the national economy to overcome the Covid-19 challenge, we constantly invest and support our customers, people and society. Nevertheless, responsible business behavior has been an integral part of Eurochartiki’s corporate culture since its establishment. Therefore, Eurochartiki supported various social initiatives for vulnerable social groups through sponsorships and donations. To illustrate this, our company completed a series of solidarity activities under the slogan “Only together we will succeed.” Specifically, we carried out a series of actions that met the basic needs of society and affected the future of the country and its citizens as a whole. With over three decades of mutual cooperation and trust with our consumers, Eurochartiki and its employees’ commitment, dedication and daily contribution continue to constantly and successfully respond to the growing needs of shareholders, partners and society. And so we will continue, working hard to provide support and matching the evolving needs with our sole aim being to strength the market with hygiene and cleaning products for the common good.

Takis Zarifopoulos CEO of Zarifopoulos S.A.

We made no compromise in our reliable response to protect our staff and our operations! I 52 I

The pandemic and its effects on the economy and security services companies: Challenges and prospects Undoubtedly, the period of the past three months has been an unprecedented test for our country, but also for the planet as a whole. Entire countries, their organizations, health systems and economies have been put to the test, and continue to be tested. Significantly, Greece managed to respond in a highly positive way to the circumstances during the pandemic period, setting a global example of discipline and efficiency. The question that arises the day after, if we can say that we are already in the day after, is What’s next? Given the coming recession, and with forecasts for a drop of 3% to 12% - which just show how difficult it is to predict with certainty what the near future holds for us, the society as a whole, the business world, workers, the Government and state agencies and structures – a number of questions reasonably arise, such as “what did the pandemic teach us,” “what do we need to change,” “what have we achieved and should we maintain, improve and strengthen.” There is no doubt that the vast majority of citizens have shown maturity and discipline, and faithfully observed the scientific and administrative instructions and rules presented to them with. Clarity, reliably and persuasively. Disciplined behavior contributed to the positive result and highlighted the need for this virtue to characterize the day after. But is this enough? There are valid views about the need to restructure Greece’s productive model. Today, in the face of the difficulties faced by Greek tourism, certain opinions are voiced about a re-examination of the socalled “single-sector development model,” as this entails risks and unforeseen consequences. What are the areas that need to be reinforced?

At the same time sufficient liquidity must be available to the economy, with support to small and medium-sized enterprises as well as all those firms with solid growth prospects. Such economic measures are already being implemented. These are the challenges of the day after! They concern the country and the economy as a whole, and each economic entity separately. Our company, Zarifopoulos SA, was adequately prepared to deal with the Covid-19 crisis. In recent years, we have made a great effort to establish a rational corporate structure and administration, to help withstand the current and future challenges. Our efforts also focus on strengthening our openness to new materials, new, modern fields and knowhow. In spite of the firm’s extensive geographic presence – in Athens and in 10 stores across Greece, with a total of more than 220 employees – we responded from the first moment of the pandemic in a planned, timely and effective manner safeguarding our personnel’s health. With the joint and disciplined effort of management and employees, we managed to have the company on standby and fully operative. We applied all medical and administrative protocols with reverence and meticulousness. This safeguarded the protection of our staff and the firm’s smooth operation. Our systems’ readiness to function properly and in a critical manner in the public health and food supply sectors, as well as in reference hospitals, supermarket chains, banks, etc., depended on our ability to respond effectively throughout this period. We made no compromise in our reliable response to protect our staff and our operations!

Frédéric Fouilloux General Manager, Servier Hellas & Cyprus

We took strategic decisions and measures, always guided by our Vision, Vocation and Values in order to first and foremost protect our people and stand by healthcare professionals I 54 I

2020: A year to remind all humanity that “The only constant  in life is change” Recent months have come to confirm the validity of what Heraclitus claimed so many years ago: “The only constant in life is change”. And even though change is a notion becoming more and more familiar over the past years to organizations willing to progress and as a key feature of the digital era, it seems that the Covid-19 crisis came to question and try how ready we were to face this challenge. Less than two months after the advent of 2020, Greece – among other countries all over the world – was called upon to react quickly, yet carefully and wisely in managing an unprecedented global health crisis with such a huge impact on human lives and the socioeconomic environment. And so Servier Hellas did, too! With our main priority being the health and safety of our people and a high sense of responsibility, as a healthcare company, to ensure business continuity and that our medicines remained available to patients as always, we very carefully looked at the situation and adapted accordingly. Teamwork, cross-functional collaboration, planning, transparent communication, adaptability and our three key drivers of Innovation, Responsibility and the Patient IN approach were the key factors that helped Servier Hellas not only to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, but also to be considered as a benchmark for the way it managed this unprecedented situation. As of mid-February, we took strategic decisions and measures always guided by our Vision, Vocation and Values in order to first and foremost protect our people and stand by healthcare professionals, those being the real heroes of such times. Among other measures, we implemented home office for all, we very quickly adapted our face-to-face visits to remote e-detailing, while we trained our Sales Team providing them with the skills and insights needed in dealing with their new working life.

We also ensured best quality of equipment, IT systems, logistics and appropriate training so that they can work from home without encountering technical issues. We stayed together and connected at a team and company level daily and weekly as needed, through our Company Digital Gatherings. Our People IN approach and our daily efforts in providing a working environment that above all respects and supports human value, was a key element for Servier Hellas being certified as a Top Employer Greece for 2020 by Top Employers Institute. Such a distinction proves the humanoriented approach of our company and the significant investment made in People’s Development and Empowerment, with people being at the heart of the business along with the rest of our stakeholders. It was remarkable how our people felt confident and reassured, as they expressed themselves in a global internal survey devoted to Covid-19 and its impact on the workforce. It is true that the pharmaceutical industry has been less affected by the global health crisis, than other sectors. Having experienced major and difficult challenges, our industry, and Greece in general, is now gradually coming out of the lockdown with moderate optimism for better prospects for its economy than originally predicted. Of course, nothing is over yet in respect to the Covid-19 crisis. Organizations must continue to be alert for potential near-future challenges and changes, and maintain the level of patience, responsibility and solidarity we demonstrated the past few months. After all, restoring some fundamental values to our lives will be a great benefit to us and our society to a larger extent. And yet, out of every crisis comes the opportunity to be reborn, with already some visible changes in our work organization. Now is the time!

Building the Future of Home Textiles in Greece NEF-NEF was established 59 years ago in Athens by Dimosthenis Kleideris. Alexandros and Konstantinos Kleideris, the second generation, managed to continue his dream and build upon it. Soon, the third generation is expected to take the reins of the firm and advance our vision. We are proud that during the past 10 years of Greece’s financial crisis we managed to double turnover and profits, as well as full time employees, without affecting our total quality or staff pay. We are proud of the dedication and commitment that our staff and partners have shown in our constant effort for improvement. Empowered by this dedication, we managed to successfully endure the Covid-19 crisis and the uncertainty that followed, so far. We made quick and flexible changes to our strategic planning, secured financially the company for short and long term unexpected events, and stabilized the supply chain against missing out on the new season offers. We have invested more than 1.2 million working hours, produced over 17,000 SKUs and 17 million units, recorded 120 million euros in turnover and have contributed 17 million euros to the Greek state over the ten-year period of the financial crisis. We are the leaders of the domestic home textile market, focusing in three business segments: wholesaling, retailing and institutional business, such as hotels,

hospitals and marine companies. We also have a strong presence abroad, that we envisage to further grow in the next five years. We are proud of the donations we make every year in order to support people in our society who face serious predicaments and need our help. The importance of helping others stems from our core beliefs in solidarity and empathy. We are concerned about the destructive condition of our planet; however, we strive through simple ways to help the environment. Nef-Nef contributes to environmental protection by participating actively in the alternative collective management recycling system, always observing the law and all European regulations. In an effort to reduce the energy footprint of our 8,500-sqm headquarters and retail space, we have installed an 80-kwP solar power system, using innovative, low-mercury technologies. Also, through collaborating with WWF Hellas, we are launching a collection that aims at raising awareness for endangered species and ocean pollution. Our mission is to offer high-quality products, excellent customer service, and build strong and lasting relationships with suppliers and partners, while working for a better society in a more sustainable environment.

Now, Power Health has expanded its business into the natural cosmetics market, under the brand name “Inalia” I 58 I

35 years of Quality, Innovation and International Expansion Success is not measured by what you have accomplished, but rather by the resistance you have encountered and the courage you have showed while fighting against the odds. The path to success is living for a strong purpose. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in. I believe that when you are fully committed to a vision, then hard work isn’t just an option. It’s a necessity. A vision without hard work, evolution, progress and strategy is merely a dream. Power Health is a dream that came true, exactly because it has all these features that are required to be successful. Power Health is the first Greek company that believed in the efficacy of food supplements, opening the road to alternative products, and is recognized as a significant chapter of the Greek economy for the past 35 years. The creation of the Research and Development Section in 2003 marks a new era for our company. Power Health is pioneering and evolving into the first Greek alternative company able to design its own products, offering natural solutions to everyday health problems. We created the first effervescent vitamins with Stevia, aiming at clean label products, Oliviotic, the first natural antibiotic with clinical evidence and synergistic formulations that act on many levels. For the past 35 years, the Greek Pharmacy has been bringing us closer to the Greek

Family offering natural and innovative solutions to health through high quality, safe and effective products. Power Health set up a strong basis, designing a new way of life that contributed to the creation of a new shelf in the Greek pharmacy, but also a sector that even though was initially disputed, along the way gave inspiration to others. Now, Power Health has expanded its business into the natural cosmetics market, under the brand name “Inalia”, offering an innovative range of natural cosmetics products for complete skin care. To further enhance its product portfolio and ever-growing market strength, Power Health made a substantial move with the acquisition of Provipax SA (Fleriana), a firm which specializes in natural repellents and household products. The acquisition is envisaged to add to the company’s constant and steady growth. We have the guaranties to represent Greek entrepreneurship by investing in three pillars: Quality, Innovation and International Expansion. Finding Greek products from the pharmacy of nature on the shelves of the world’s pharmacies, gives us the strength to carry on, remaining always faithful to our values. Since the firm’s inception, we have been fully committed to our first and foremost purpose: to bring with ethically high standards the Power of Nature at the service of human needs.

FARCOM: Responsibility and solidarity in dealing with the Covid-19 crisis From the first days of the Covid-19 pandemic, FARCOM prioritized the safety of its associates and the community, as well as their effective support in the tough conditions that emerged. Dealing with the global threat of the Covid-19 pandemic in a sense of responsibility, we make all efforts to operate in a highly protected manner for our staff, partners and the community as a whole. At FARCOM, our daily efforts during the pandemic period have been focused on meeting the highly increased needs of the Greek market for Gel and Lotion products with Mild Antiseptic Action. In spite of significant rises in the cost of packaging and raw materials, the firm has so far kept product prices down. Our attention was directed towards drawing up a production plan in order to meet the particularly high demand for these products. To this end, FARCOM effectively utilized its human resources and since the beginning of the pandemic has been at the forefront of dealing with the crisis. It was important for us during such unprecedented conditions to do more than we could in order to stand up to the circumstances. Farcom actively supported organizations and businesses that have been and remain at the forefront, such as the Security Forces (Police and Fire Brigade), Hospitals, Regional and Municipal Authorities, food and supply chain companies and many more.

At the same time, the company proved it was fully prepared to safeguard its smooth operation so as to be able to support in every way and ensure the health and safety of our partners. We developed guidelines for the design of a safe environment for our employees and partners. We ensured from the first moment and provided the staff with all the necessary means, while clear instructions were issued for personnel movement and functions in the workplaces. We firmly believe that with collective responsibility and adherence to our safety measures in the face of this global threat, we will be able to overcome the crisis and gradually return to a new, healthy reality. The company’s focus is also on the completion of its second production unit (10,000sqm), allowing for penetration into new product categories. The new plant will be equipped with state-of-the-art software and mechanical and electronic equipment for production, production planning, raw material and packaging materials management, and quality control, ensuring a faster, safer and higher quality production process. The specific investment allows FARCOM to lay the foundations for further growth, which will also actively support both the local and national economies. All of the above outline the profile of a company that aims to always stand by its partners and the community under any circumstances.

E-Commerce growth drives the sector ACS Single Member S.A., member of Quest Group, is the leading company in the courier services sector in Greece. Throughout 2019, the company demonstrated a positive track record of growth, with total revenue topping €110 million (+7.3% compared to 2018). Courier Postal Services are ACS’s main activity, accounting for approx. 85% of the company’s total revenue, followed by Mail Postal Services, accounting for approx. 13.5% of total revenue.

Throughout 2019, the company demonstrated a positive track record of growth in the entire range of its activities I 62 I

In 2019, EBITDA rose to €15.76 million (up 14.7% over 2018), with EBT also rising to €13.2 million (up 7.1% over 2018). The firm’s courier activity growth in 2019 was favored by the overall growth of the courier services market, which is expected to follow an upward trend in the next years, owing to the ongoing growth of e-commerce. In this context, since late 2016, the company implements the 2nd phase of upgrading its sorting/distribution facilities in Attica, on a land plot purchased in 2015. This phase involves mainly the design and construction of a modern and highcapacity sorting center, expected to be completed in 2021, allowing for a fivefold sorting capacity increase. Based on ACS’s strategic plan, the company in the next four years plans to invest more than €40 million in capacity and infrastructure upgrades, as well as in improvements in customer experience. Considering that in 2020, the courier

services market is expected to continue to grow, fueled primarily by e-commerce growth, the company is upgrading its IT infrastructure and is offering new solutions to customers, while developing a point-of-sales network to better meet e-commerce customers’ needs, aiming also at increasing its market share. The mail postal services market is still declining, due to the gradual substitution of mail by electronic communications; however, there are still prospects for sustaining and growing revenue from this segment by increasing ACS’ market share. Quest Group is one of the largest, dynamically growing and financially sound Greek Group of Companies, with activities in five (5) distinct areas: ICT products, IT services, Electronic Transactions, Postal Services and Renewable Energy. Quest Group, in 2019 generated revenue of €600 million, with more than €100 million (16%) coming from customers abroad. The Group has a long history in business value creation, and in recent years has managed to grow by at least an average of 10% yoy. The Group and its Companies’ mission is to create long term value for its stakeholders and to play a leading role in the markets in which they operate, based on the principles of sustainable development, and having as a driving force the people and the values of the Group.

EURIMAC is a successful company with high-quality pasta products, enjoying recognition and respect by consumers all over the world I 64 I

A sanitary crisis creating risks and…opportunities I always believed that in order to succeed you must have dreams and persistence to accomplish them. The coronavirus pandemic has created a particular environment worldwide, changing market data, and governments have taken extraordinary measures to restrict citizen movement in order to contain the spread of Covid-19. The food market has been affected less than other sections of the economy, although there exists a risk of a reappearance of Covid-19. Consumers and supermarkets stocked enough food to last for a minimum of two months, in case the virus and the need to self-isolate reappear. Pasta consumption at home increased because of the closure of many restaurants to prevent the spread of the virus. As a result, consumers stayed at home and cooked more than in the past. EURIMAC SA was able to respond to this demand, having large stocks, and thus meet the growing consumer demand. The pandemic brought about considerable changes to the lifestyle and preferences of consumers, pushing them towards take away meals that were a major driver for the pasta companies. At the same time, the pandemic has led to mass panic

buying of different types of pasta, such as for instance, 5 cereal pasta. If we want to effectively respond to consumer needs, we must focus on developing more specialized products. In this category, our company is expected to retain its dominant position, as its raises production of such products by 10% in 2020. Covid-19 has been a painful experience, but it has also been a cause for creation. EURIMAC can adapt to unexpected events. It has been confirmed that business expansion is an all-time advantage because we serve a multiform customer base (retail and foodservice, private label, and strong own-brands presence in Greece and abroad). EURIMAC’s Plan B in order to cope with this new environment is not just a theory but a business value. We have a flexible workforce that effectively responds to new project requirements. In addition, our modern facilities are a powerful tool for the firm’s growth. It is our great pleasure to see our pasta products on supermarket shelves in 50 countries and in 5 continents. EURIMAC is a successful company with high-quality pasta products, enjoying recognition and respect by consumers all over the world, and, honestly, we are very proud of this.

The Greek state should not be in any dilemma: tourism (services) and industrialization are not competitive forces I 66 I

Hellas, it’s time to change the debate Our country, Hellas, hasn’t figured out yet which growth model it should follow. This reflects to our society and economy: small businesses, a few major extroverted companies, tourism, amateur agricultural sector and family businesses, ineffective education, lack of training, lack of productivity. Combine all these with a slow motion and an expensive state and you have Greece. Our country struggles to become investment friendly because nobody wants to deal with bureaucracy or a chaotic legal system, high labor costs and a complex tax system. This stands for both potential foreign investors and domestic ones. We have been discussing the same old problems for decades now, mainly the past one. It is now time to change the debate. As a “contractor” and “manufacturer” in the post-crisis era (and hopefully in the postCovid-19 era), I see our country’s future depending on the manufacturing and industrial sector. At SOLERGON SA, our company strategy springs from our main principles: reinvestment, continuous training of our people to improve productivity, commitment to safety and quality protocols and flawless execution of every project we are involved in. We take pride in the fact that we have been adding jobs and growth to our national economy under extremely difficult circumstances. We need to discuss the role of the industrial and manufacturing sectors in the near future. The government that emerged from the 2019 elections, pledged to promote an innovation and entrepreneurial culture, as

well as new organizational models that are suited to today’s needs. The government is only one year in power, and its plans were diverted by two major crises, which were managed successfully, so it’s too soon to tell whether it has succeeded or failed to meet its basic pledge. Optimism and trust prevails. But I can’t help noticing that we are debating the same things. We keep talking about productivity and growth without clarifying our targets. This dichotomy becomes evident when it comes to the energy transition and the lignite phase out, which is being carried out hastily and without a plan and alternatives. It is the government’s obligation to assist the industrial sector to become competitive by applying longscale reforms to the public sector and the legal and tax systems, and encouraging the country’s (digital) transformation. It is the only way to attract new investments and let the existing ones grow. The Covid-19 pandemic proved that relying only on sensitive industries, like tourism, without the stable environment of production and manufacturing, is not a wise choice. The Greek state should not be in any dilemma: tourism (services) and industrialization are not competitive forces. But without a master plan that includes industrial production in the growth model, one should not be very optimistic about the future of the Greek economy. I believe that it is now high time we reset our priorities, but in order to do so we need to stop debating the same things over and over again, we need to change the debate.

Business Cooperation between Greece and Turkey Most of the extroverted Greek companies operating in Turkey have used the services of the Greek-Turkish Chamber of Commerce. There are about 550 Greek companies -from the entire spectrum of the economy- operating in Turkey as investors, with the total capital invested amounting to 4.9 billion euros. At the same time, there are only few Turkish companies operating in Greece, with the total invested capital amounting to less than €350 million. The total trade between the two countries in 2019 amounted to €2.75 billion, with €1.42 billion accounting for exports of Greek products to Turkey and €1.33 billion for imports of Turkish products to Greece. Greek exports to Turkey include plastics, electrical machinery, cotton, oil products, automotive oils, pharmaceuticals, jewelry, etc. Greek imports from Turkey include tourist busses, auto parts, agricultural products, machinery, packing materials, etc. The Turkish market is the largest in the region. The two main features making Turkey an important destination for business partnerships are its population of 84 million and the low average age of 32 years. Both of these features make Turkey a highly attractive destination for all kinds of Greek exports. In the tourism sector, there is an evident

need to further strengthen business relations as 1.0 million Turkish tourists visited Greece in 2019 and 1.0 million Greek tourists visited Turkey. The Greek-Turkish Chamber of Commerce estimates that by 2020 the total trade between the two countries will reach €3 billion. Within the framework of trade support and investments in Turkey, GTCC annually organizes 16 business missions focusing on products and services, which we are keen to export. GTCC supports businesspeople financially as follows: ● It covers the expenses for a 4- or 5-star hotel for 2 nights along with breakfast. ●A  irport transfer is provided daily to the hotel and to the convention hall. Under the same strategic plans, we promote two to four conferences, which take place every year locally, and two Europe-wide conferences in Turkey and Greece, respectively. Our aspiration is to advance products we have investigated that are needed in Turkey such as: ● frozen foods - seafood ● organic products ● fertilizers ● vegetables ● healthy diet products

How is COVID-19 affecting the Greek aquaculture Fish farming in Greece in 2019 confirmed for yet another year its contribution to the economy as a leading industry of the primary sector. Total production reached almost 120,000 tons, worth €500 million. Of these, 19% were sold in Greece, 74% in EU countries and 7% in third countries. Greek sea bream and sea bass in the same year were sold to a total of 44 markets, demonstrating strong worldwide consumer acceptance as products of top quality and high nutritional value. However, in 2020, the aquaculture industry, as all productive activities in the country, was faced with an unprecedented situation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The effects of the pandemic impacted both of the industry’s main characteristics: export orientation and management of the livestock that was placed in the water. In short, aquaculture companies have to deal with three financial challenges at the same time: Firstly, the reduced liquidity due to declining sales which followed the lockdown in Horace and the declining retail demand. The restrictive measures imposed (closure of hotels, restaurants, etc.) resulted in a sharp drop in consumption in all key markets. Estimates for the first four months of 2020 show a total drop of exports above 30% compared to the corresponding period in 2019. The impact is particularly severe in companies that work primarily or even exclusively with the Italian market. Secondly, the increased production costs. In the context of declining sales and revenue, companies need to make up for the extra costs resulting from the extended production cycle and particularly the feeding of the fish. Fish feeds account for 60% - 65% of production costs. Thirdly, reduced sales resulted in the creation of an ever-increasing surplus of unsold products, which may destabilize markets when the restrictive measures are lifted. However, it is worth noting that throughout the crisis, the production

process continued normally (breeding of living organisms cannot be stopped). As for the supply of markets, it also continued normally, with the exception of markets supplied by air, e.g. US and Canada, where costs rose by 50%. The President of FGM, Mr. Leonidas Kolioulis, underlines that “it is a positive development that the European Fisheries and Maritime Fund has been amended and that special financial assistance will be given to aquaculture producers to help mitigate the effects of the pandemic as much as possible. In addition, it is encouraging that since the gradual lifting of the restrictive measures that began in May, the economy has begun to gradually recover, and the first signs of a stimulus for Greek aquaculture products are emerging. However, it is a fact that no one can predict how the long-awaited tourist season will develop in the second half of the year. In any case, companies have taken all necessary measures primarily to protect their employees, and guarantee the smooth operation of fish farms and of course the stable supply of markets with high-quality aquaculture products. We remain alert, but are optimistic that in the end we are going to overcome this crisis, too, with controlled losses.”

COVID-19: A new challenge Faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, the priority has been to strengthen the healthcare system and find scientific solutions to cope with this new pandemic. However, it is also really important to minimize the devastating impact on our economy, in order to ensure that the stagnation in economic activity and employment will be temporary. The Greek Government has responded by taking action to bolster key sectors and minimize the socioeconomic impact of the pandemic. Measures include economic assistance packages, tax moratoriums, extended deadlines, social security contributions, as well as wage subsidies, loans and guarantees for workers. However, individual action is also required by export companies. Greek exporters achieved significant performance amidst a very tough business environment, overcoming all the obstacles that the economic crisis has created. During this crisis, exports were the only way out for many new businesses, which, in combination with existing exporters, improved Greece’s export performance, setting a new record. Now, during this difficult uncharted period, whose development is unknown, exporters are faced with a new challenge. There are many difficulties, but in every crisis there are emerging opportunities. Perhaps the growing need for proper, healthier nutrition, in combination with the qualitative superiority of our products, opens a window of hope for the export sector. Now is the time for exporters to activate all their strength and redefine their

goals. They must create short-term, more technocratic and measurable strategies, with specific goals and measurable results. They must identify the target markets and the nutritional needs that the new dietary standards create, while maintaining traditional markets. At the same time, they need to highlight the comparative advantages of the Greek products, in order to gain the reputation they deserve. This requires high quality of raw materials, compliance with safety regulations (ISO, HACCP, etc.), international certificates such as IFS, BRC or other certificates required by modern market mechanisms, modern and practical packaging, as well as multilingual labelling. In addition, the agricultural sector must turn to new and organic crops, and certified PDO & PGI products. This critical moment does not allow us to repeat the mistakes of the past, i.e. the phenomenon of Shrinking Exports – Increasing Imports that prevailed in many periods of the Modern Greek economy. We believe that now it is more necessary than ever for the Government and exporters to join forces, cooperate in order to strengthen exports, create a great and internationally recognized brand name for Greece, avoid overlapping actions, save costs, and consequently stimulate Greece’s economy. Let’s all dare together to eradicate the evils of the past and create a healthy export environment for tomorrow. “GREECE FORWARD” is the motto that should become the new road map for Greek exports in the post-Covid-19 pandemic era.

Optimism prevails in the Beauty Industry The Beauty Industry in 2019 showed its strength in the market, sales networks, innovative products and services. The overall assessment of industry figures shows that after the worst moments of the 10-year economic crisis, consumers have returned to the cosmetics market. The sector in 2019 reached sales of €1.0 billion, with exports exceeding €300 million. We have been able to maintain a consistent activity in all areas, as well as to consolidate our global presence and pioneer the link between research and production. In 2020, with the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, and despite the abrupt change, we responded immediately to two areas: health and legislation. Through actions and memoranda to the competent bodies, we succeeded in the inclusion of the relevant Activity Code Number - KAD (Category 2042) regarding the disposal and production of cosmetics-perfumes and beauty products, in the list of beneficiaries of the beneficial provisions of the Ministry of Finance, thus contributing to the protection of sector businesses and their employees. This, together with the KAD of companies that are affected or were closed by state order, created a positive image of the Association to our member companies and our employees. Cosmetics both in pharmacies and in supermarkets and e-commerce provided a breath of fresh air to the industry and its liquidity during the lockdown period. Throughout this period, e-commerce and the beauty and personal care categories

contributed to a large increase in sales in supermarkets by +166% and in pharmacies by +46% (March 2019 to March 2020). On May 4, 2020, hairdressers and beauty salons reopened. However, unfortunately, the potential of the tourist “blue economy” and the Hotel Spa cannot reopen in time. We are aware of the difficulties facing consumers. Nevertheless, companies and retailers in the sector will support the market in a variety of ways to reach stability by the end of 2020 and be on a growth trajectory in 2021. Fortunately, there have been great players in retail and healthy companies in production, imports and exports. We hope that it is in everyone’s interest for the new state measures to continue and not be temporary. We, at the Beauty Industry, involve in innovative production activities and have an awareness of what it means to restart the industry with bold decisions in both domestic and foreign markets. Employment in the Beauty Industry is strong and with discreet moves we will overcome temporary obstacles. We honor our entire industry for the composure of our employees and companies. We will continue our contribution, and remain optimistic. We are awaiting the green light for exports to begin again. We also welcome the successful execution of teleworking. In addition, we are awaiting the utilization of subsidized loans under the business financing program TEPIX II. Many thanks to the partner organizations that trust us.

All of the above measures, if taken, will provide some relief to businesses hit by the lockdown and the pandemic in general I 78 I

Solutions and proposals for an immediate recovery of the Greek economy It is too early to assess the impact of the pandemic outbreak on the Greek economy and on individual sectors. In a survey conducted in April 2020 among SESMA members, respondents estimated that the Greek economy will return to growth rates in a year or more (68%), although 25.3% of those asked, believed that recovery will happen earlier, predicting a short, only 6-month, recession. As prof. N. Bettas, general manager at IOBE (Foundation for Economic & Industrial Research) said during the recent annual general assembly meeting of SESMA, the GDP reduction in Greece for the current year, according to Hellenic Statistical Authority and the evolution of health issues, is estimated to be between 5% and 10%. However, Greece may face increased pressure on incomes with some delay in comparison to the rest of Europe, as it happened in the financial crisis of 2008. Taking into account the views of the Greek management consulting firms, members of SESMA, specific proposals were prepared and submitted to the relevant Ministries, in order to take specific horizontal action to support the competitiveness and sustainability of Greek enterprises. These proposals include: Utilization of the National Support Reference Framework (NSRF) in order to support all firms to: upgrade their technical infrastructure and equipment, and provide training to their staff in order to be better prepared for the

new reality for “working from home” as a first step to their digital transformation; sustain job positions and avoid unemployment increase, by covering part of the social security contributions and rewarding the creation of new jobs; boost liquidity of those enterprises having already joined State Aid Actions, through receiving an advance payment without a guarantee, or with a state guarantee. Suspension of tax payments and social security contributions for the businesses most affected by Covid-19. Suspension and/or relief measures against loan obligations and overdue amounts, for at least 6 months. Facilitation of business financing by lifting impediments. Simplification and acceleration of procedures for the implementation of the Development Law and the Actions of State Aid of the NSRF, in order to ensure the timely payment of aid. All of the above measures, if taken, will provide some relief to businesses hit by the lockdown and the pandemic in general. However, as Greece’s economy is mainly based on small enterprises, which are highly dependent on consumption and heavily related to tourism, the effect will be broader and not easily controlled. It is now time to seriously reconsider our economic model and plan for the digitalized future with a better balance between services and primary/ manufacturing sectors.

Business cooperation between Bulgaria and Greece Bulgaria, a member of the European Community, has managed to overcome the economic crisis from the beginning of the year 2011, and is constantly developing ever since. Bulgaria‘s population has reached 7.2 million people, following a declining line. Taxation on business profits is up to 10%, while the minimum wage is 350 euros, and the annual inflation is 2%. Bulgaria’s banking system is stable and business activities are considered to develop under positive circumstances. Capital investments from Greece are valued at 2.2 billion euros, excluding the percentage spent annually from business profits, because it is not recorded under the Bulgarian statistics service. The GreekBulgarian Chamber of Commerce estimates that the respective amount of capital is up to 3.4 billion euros. The total trade has reached 3.1 billion euros in 2018, which is a positive number for Greece’s trade balance. The business sector with the largest share is services-trade, followed by manufacturing and small industry. The Greek-Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce organizes departmental day conferences annually, together with one General Congress in Athens or Sophia. Thus, an opportunity is offered to people

from several businesses to meet potential Bulgarian colleagues, and hold discussions on developing their businesses and striking new cooperation deals. The GreekBulgarian Chamber mediates so as to offer its services to various businesses that may need support. Moreover, the Greek-Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce maintains excellent relationships with authorities, ministries, chambers and organizations, in both Greece and Bulgaria, hence it is considered a trustworthy supportive agent for the development of bilateral commerce and investments, and in this way offers reliable services to both members and nonmembers. There are 2000 active businesses of Greek interests operating currently in Bulgaria in all economic sectors. However, the actual number of businesses recorded reaches up to 15,000, owing to the fact that businesses are being established even for the purpose of buying either real estate or cars. Greek companies should seriously consider the Bulgarian market as an expansion of their activities and not take advantage of the low labor cost. The business vibe is positive, and that’s why they should focus on the capacity given to absorb business products from the Bulgarian market.

Dr. Yiannis Kontoulis, President of the Hellenic Institute for Fire Protection of Structures (ELIPYKA)

One of the top goals of ELIPYKA is starting to be put in practice I 82 I

Steps for the implementation of the Building Fire Protection Regulation The Hellenic Institute of Fire Protection of Structures (ELIPYKA) has made several public interventions in the last two years for the improvement and implementation of the Regulation of Fire Protection of Buildings. In June 2020 the State announced the first step for the establishment of a Control Mechanism for the implementation of the legislation on Fire Protection. The Control Mechanism is one of the top goals of the Hellenic Institute of Fire Protection of Structures (ELIPYKA) and we welcome this decision. In particular, on June 11, 2020, the no. 19/2020 Fire Brigade Order (Πυροσβεστική Διάταξη) was issued describing the “Procedure for imposing administrative fines for violations of regulatory provisions of fire protection legislation”, published in Government Gazette B 2233 11/6/2020, and provides for administrative fines, determines their amount, severity, responsibility and the process of certification and collection, assigning responsibility to the Fire Brigade. This mechanism is an important first step in completing the Building Fire Protection Regulation and the fire protection legislation in general and we must note it accordingly. There are still steps to be taken to make sure that the Fire Protection Regulation (which is in place since 2018) is implemented, yet this first step is important as it also indicates the political

will from the Greek State to proceed. Even though this is just a first step, it has great significance, as the implementation and control mechanism is what is missing in Greek reality and hinders development under equal terms for all. The Hellenic Institute of Fire Protection of Structures (ELIPYKA): suggests, formulates and supports fire protection standards and regulations in construction industry it makes studies and proposals for new enhancements and improvements in order to reduce and prevent the loss of life and property in construction because of fire, so that Greek people and the Greek economy can flourish in a safe and healthy environment. participates in public consultations on the drafting of laws, decisions and regulations that are directly or indirectly related to the establishment of fire protection standards and the procedures for their observance (study control, control of the implementation of the study, certification) by submitting specific proposals on behalf of ELIPYKA members. Participating members of ELIPYKA are companies specialized in building systems, heat insulating materials, cables, doors, windows, façade systems, heatingcooling systems, fire protection systems, professional associations, academics, universities, specialized laboratories and firefighters.

The importance of maintaining healthy eating habits will be reinforced by the current health crisis, which should further promote consumption of F&V. I 84 I

Fruit and Vegetable exports up 26.7% in value and 14.8% in volume in the first four months of 2020 Following an all-time record in 2019, Greek exports of F&V continued on an upward trend, achieving increases of 26.7% in value and 14.8% in volume in the first four (4) months of 2020, compared with the same period in 2019. According to ELSTAT data processed by Incofruit, volumes reached 551.1 thousand tons with a total value of €418.1 million. Quantities of vegetable exports (EU trade and exports to third countries) rose by 10% in the first four (4) months of 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, reaching 107,926 tons, of a value of €84.5 million, up 11.7%. Fruit volumes reached 443,185 tons (+16%), while value peaked at €333.67 million (+31.1%). Vegetable export volumes increased by 10% reaching 107,926 tons, with tomatoes recording +12.3%, peppers +33.1% with 7,601 tons, cucumbers +4% and potatoes at +0.1%. Fruit exports in the first four (4) months of 2020 rose to 443.19 thousand tons representing a +16% increase compared to the same period in 2019. Apples recorded a drop of -9.6% as did mandarins -5.6%, while oranges, lemons, strawberries and kiwifruit all showed strong increases at 33.1%, 26,4%, 14.6% and 11.8% respectively. Collectively, the value of all exported fruits rose by 31.1% reaching €333.67 million (based on ELSTAT data processed by Incofruit-Hellas) The increase in export value of fruits by 31.1% is impressive and highlights the average price hike of our products, attributed mainly to oranges and kiwifruit which broke export records. Current indications based on interim data by the Ministry of Agriculture show the trend is likely to continue at +17% in

volumes and at around +25% in value. Assuming no losses due to potential future weather conditions, exports of F&V are poised for a 10 year record. In the same four-month period, a drop was recorded in F&V imports into Greece by -5% in volume. In particular, vegetable imports dropped by -11.6% in volume and -16.9% in value. Regrettably, the unlawful practice of exporting fruit directly from the field persists. Greek and other regional “traders” continue shipping unstandardized fruit, mainly to neighboring countries. On some products, this practice involves major quantities that are not recorded or reported, also resulting in damaging the reputation of Greek F&V. Without a doubt, the coronavirus pandemic will result in a financial crisis greatly affecting the buying power of European consumers. Clearly, the agro sector will not be left unscathed. However, now more than ever, consumers will be looking for fresh F&V which are health promotors while being more affordable than other categories. The importance of maintaining healthy eating habits will be reinforced by the current health crisis, which should further promote consumption of F&V. Correctly packed fruit is becoming very important while demand for non-standardized produce is dropping. In order to maintain the good reputation of Greek products in consumer markets, it is imperative to strictly apply national and EU quality specifications, as well as trading regulations with full traceability, thus providing consumers with safe produce throughout the supply chain.

Our priorities need to be reconsidered With about 99% of its total production exported, it is undeniable that the Greek Fruit Processing Industry is among the most extrovert segments of the Greek economy. That is why we are among the first to be affected by global supply chains disruptions and changes in consumer preferences. The COVID-19 pandemic has shaped the year 2020, so far. The food industry was affected in many ways by the pandemic. In our case, sales and shipments were the first activities to witness disruption. Demand for final products in retail sizes during March and the beginning of April was much higher than usual in these months. Consumers rushed to supermarkets to stock on food, and our fruits were among their first choices. Canned and frozen fruits count as much as fresh to reach the “5 A Day” goal of a healthy diet. In periods of lockdown or quarantine they are even preferable, since they are much more easily available. However, shipments of final products for use in HoReCa stopped completely. Large numbers of processed fruits are consumed in hotels, restaurants, open buffets and cafés, but all those places were shut down in most countries. Production of processed fruits in Greece takes place mainly during the summer. As we get nearer to the season, it becomes clear that production will be affected

as well. One of the main issues revealed by the pandemic is the dependence of European food production on seasonal workers coming from other countries, whether inside or outside of the EU. Although the worst scenario is avoided and farm workers are allowed to cross the borders, we shall have to wait and see whether they will be enough to ensure that both quality and quantity of fruits will be the best possible. As far as factories are concerned, their operation is already adjusted to observe all necessary precautions for final products hygiene and workers protection. This will result in higher costs for the production of processed fruits this year, as is the case with most foods. The fruit processing industry always does its part to supply consumers with the highest quality possible in the most affordable prices. It is high time retailers decided to assume part of the rising cost of food production. The pandemic forced us all to reconsider our priorities. The priorities of economic activities and decisions need to be reconsidered as well. Our fast and easy access to adequate food should not be taken for granted. As societies, we need to invest more in basic food production and the people working to produce it. And start paying more for it.

The “diamonds” of the crisis During Greece’s tough period of 20092018, a decade of crisis in which the country lost a large part of its GDP, tens of thousands of businesses shut down and rising unemployment led to hundreds of thousands of young people leaving Greece. However, during the same period, a number of companies proved to be crisisresistant and literally flourished. This is the conclusion of a large nationwide survey conducted by New Times on a sample of 4,098 large businesses, with comparable data for the years 2009 and 2018. The survey will be presented at the business excellence event Diamonds of the Greek Economy 2020, to be held on July 15, 2020 at the Hilton Hotel Athens. According to the survey, 338 large companies from the entire business spectrum each posted 2018 net profits of more than €3.0 million. Of these, 253 companies also enjoyed an improved financial performance.

The top-20 of Greece’s most profitable companies included: Hellenic Petroleum, Cosmote Mobile Telecommunications, Motor Oil, Public Gas Corporation (DEPA), Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE), Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (AIA), Greek Organization of Football Prognostics (OPAP) Mytlinaios, Hellenic Gas Transmission System Operator (DESFA), Karelia, Attiki Odos, Athens Water Supply and Sewerage Company (EYDAP), Aegean Airlines, Jumbo, FHL Kyriakidis, Ethniki - Hellenic General Insurance, AB Vassilopoulos, ElvalHalkor, Teleperformance and Nestle Hellas. Highlights in the first category (over €3 million in profit and over 10% profit growth) include the following companies:

The New Times survey shows that: ■ 196 companies reported profits above €3.0 million. These companies enjoyed a profit growth of over 10% in 2018 compared to 2009. ■ 51 companies which reported a loss in 2009, in 2018 posted profits above €3.0 million. ■ 6 companies with a profit of more than €3.0 million saw their profitability rise between 4% and 8% in 2018 compared to 2009. ■ Finally, 85 companies reported a drop in profits in 2018 compared to 2009, but their profitability increased to levels of over €3.0 million.

Can we eliminate plastic waste?

Plastic waste is a problem. And we are going to fix it. How? First, by getting help from our industry friends who also want to #EndPlasticWaste. Ensuring no waste – plastic or otherwise – gets in our environment. We’re finding new after-use opportunities. We’re cleaning up our ocean. We’re improving waste management. Plastics benefit our lives in so many ways. And we can’t let it go to waste. It’s time to change the conversation. To change our planet. How can you help? #DontWaste

Refining is the Group’s core business, accounting for 75% of total assets. It owns three of the four refineries in Greece, of 344 kbpd total capacity, with a 60% share of the Greek wholesale oil products market. The Group is the domestic ground fuels marketing leader, with a retail network of c.1,700 service stations throughout Greece as well as LPG, industrial, aviation and marine fuels and lubricants businesses. HELLENIC PETROLEUM is a leading player in SE European markets. Through its storage and logistics assets and network of over 300 petrol stations is one of the key fuels marketing players in Cyprus, Serbia, Bulgaria, Montenegro and Republic of North Macedonia. The Group’s exploration and production activities are focused on Greece by developing an exploration portfolio in onshore and offshore areas, either independently or in collaboration with leading companies in the sector such as Total, ExxonMobil, Repsol and Edison. HELLENIC PETROLEUM is the sole petrochemicals producer in Greece, mainly active in the propylenepolypropylene value chain.

The Group is present in the natural gas sector through its 35% stake in DEPA, which is the main natural gas importer and wholesale supplier in the country. DEPA has a strong presence in the distribution and supply business through its subsidiaries.

Papastratos Today Papastratos, an affiliate of Philip Morris international (PMI), has been a leader in the production and commercialization of tobacco products in Greece for nine decades. In 2017, Papastratos turned the page in its long history and took a leading role in the radical transformation of the tobacco industry and the implementation of PMI’s vision for a smoke-free world for the benefit of adult smokers who have chosen to continue smoking. With a significant investment of € 300 million, Papastratos transformed in 2018 its factory in Aspropyrgos into an exclusive heated tobacco sticks production unit for the new, potentially reduced risk product, IQOS, the first PMI heat not burn product. This investment generated 400 new job positions, boosting employment in Greece. By March 31st, 2020, approximately 10.6 million adult smokers around the world and more than 230.000 in Greece have switched to the new technology, which is now available in 53 countries. In April 2019, the US

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the marketing of IQOS in U.S.A as appropriate for the protection of the public health. In this transformation road for a smoke free future Papastratos supports important smoke-free initiatives, that declare the intention to leave cigarette behind. Smoke Free TIF, Smoke Free Astypalea and Smoke Free Delphi Forum are some of them. In February 2020, Papastratos initiated a publicly announced and call to action target for a smoke free society: the ambitious goal of reducing the number of Greek smokers by one million by the end of 2021. Papastratos invited the State, the society and the scientific community to take part in this collective effort. Papastratos has been named as the “No 1 Most Admired Company in Greece” and the “No 1 Most Admired Industry” by Fortune Magazine, and is the first certified “SmokeFree” company in Greece by TÜV Austria Hellas.

Chipita was established in Greece in 1973 as a company producing and marketing savoury snacks. The main products back then were our Extra cheese-flavoured corn snacks, subsequently followed as of 1988 by potato chips. In 1991, the market saw the arrival of our 7DAYS croissant followed shortly thereafter by the 7DAYS mini croissant. A few years later- in 1995- the innovative savoury Bake Rolls hit the markets, rapidly establishing themselves as consumers favorite. At about the same time, Chipita started establishing itself as the international company it remains today, either by setting up its own subsidiaries or by entering into strategic partnerships, either with major international or with strong local companies. Thus, Chipita has been operating outside Greece since 1996 by setting up manufacturing plants in Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Russia and Saudi Arabia, and more recently in Turkey, Malaysia, Mexico, India and Slovakia (2020). In addition it has also set up offices in 11 countries: Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Serbia, Slovakia, Croatia, the Baltics, Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus and United Kingdom. Chipita is currently present internationally in 3 major product categories - croissants and similar dough products, bread based baked snacks (Bake Rolls) and other products. The firm’s international brands are: 7days, Fineti and Chipicao. Local brands are: Molto, Spinspan, Chipita Chips, Tsipers and extra.

The Tsetis Pharmaceutical Group of Companies (OFET), comprises two complimentary, dynamic pharma companies, UNI-PHARMA S.A. and INTERMED S.A., as well as a commercial company in Cyprus, Pharmabelle and the newly established Uniherbo, specializing in medicinal plant extraction, all sharing parallel objectives, yet with a different focus. Kleon Tsetis, a restless pharmacist and researcher, with a vision to strengthen the position of Greek manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry, established Uni-Pharma in 1963 with the mission to improve the quality of life of our fellow men by facilitating access to treatment with Innovative, high-quality, GMP and cost-efficient pharmaceutical products. Since its establishment, UNI-PHARMA has been researching, developing, manufacturing and marketing pharmaceuticals of the highest quality, covering all major therapeutic categories, with innovative highlight brands such as APOTEL® and SALOSPIR®, as well as technological challenges such as T4®, and the new one TREBON GRIPPE day & night. Uni-Pharma’s vision is to be among the leaders of the constantly changing pharmaceutical landscape, by offering high-quality products to patients worldwide. Since its foundation, Uni-Pharma has grown from a small privately-held company into a large and dynamic organization, which currently holds the leading position in unit sales among Greek-owned companies in the domestic mar-

ket. In order to sustain this growth, Uni-Pharma actively explores collaboration potential with commercial partners and academic Institutions, on a global scale, while tirelessly investing in technology and manufacturing excellence. Through undaunted efforts, Uni-Pharma’s reach today extends to five continents and 47 countries (together, Uni-pharma and InterMed export to more than 66 countries worldwide), leveraging on growth opportunities around the globe. UNI-PHARMA exports high-technology and innovative products under its own brands, creating value and contributing to the great national effort of re-shaping the character and dynamic of Greece’s economy. Accountability – A generous donation of Unikinon However, Uni-pharma stands out not only for its financial results, but also for its Corporate Responsibility policy, which was once again highlighted in the context of the COVID -19 pandemic. Specifically, the company’s management, with a sense of historical and social responsibility, donated to the Greek state 24 million free doses of Unikinon (chloroquine) and an additional 60,000 doses of the same drug to Cyprus government. Chloroquine, according to scientists, is considered an effective treatment for COVID-19, and is already part of the treatment protocols of many patients in hospitals. It is worth noting that the entire process of purchasing raw material, production of the drug and implementation of the


donation, was carried out on the initiative of the President and CEO of OFET, Mrs. Ioulia Tseti. A quantity of five (5) tons of chloroquine was bought by OFET from India on March 21, 2020 just before India closed its borders and almost no one in the world could procure the valuable active substance. In addition, Uni-pharma is currently conducting HOPE, an Open-Label, NonRandomized Clinical Trial on chloroquine, in collaboration with research centers and reference hospitals, in order to further explore the clinical data of the active substance. Research & Patents With regard to research, the firm has expanded far beyond the realm of pharmaceutical technology and innovation, as it has already filed/holds 62 national (50 related to Uni-Pharma and 12 to InterΜed products) and 24 international (20 related to Uni-Pharma and 4 to InterΜed products) patent applications/patents, some of them granted in more than 60 countries worldwide. Only in the past three (3) years, the firm has filed 22 new national and international patent applications in the fields of pharmaceutical active substance development and novel pharmaceutical and nutritional compositions. Most prominent token of UNI-PHARMA’s commitment in multi-dimensional business development and source of competitive advantage is a new, state-of-the-art industrial plant in Attica, which is the largest investment made in the Greek pharmaceutical industry in recent years. The new facilities are a model for safety, efficiency and automation. The bioclimatic design, allows a significant reduction in the site’s energy consumption footprint, coupled with other best sustainability practices, while being in full harmony with the surrounding environment, whereas fully automated and digitized production and control systems maximize effort and output. Excellence, Awards and Recognitions Throughout the years, Uni-Pharma has received Excellence Awards by numerous Institutions both nationally and internationally, either for its products or innovative business practices and procedures: ●A  ward to Mrs Ioulia Tsetis as one of the Most Powerful Women in Greece by the magazine FORTUNE GREECE. ●U  ni-pharma & IntereMed won five important distinctions for Occupational Safety, Health and Culture, by the Health & Safety Awards 2020 (June 2020) held at The American College of Greece. ● In addition, at the same event, the Group received the Health and Safety Initiative of the Year award, for the highest points received through all the awards it has won by participating in Pillars A & B. ● Uni-Pharma received the 2020 Environment

VIANEX S.A.

The living history of the Greek pharmaceutical industry VIANEX SA is one of Greece’s largest pharmaceutical companies, compared not only to Greek, but also international pharmaceutical firms. With more than 90 years of experience in the field of medicine, VIANEX records top performance in a wide range of activities, including production, marketing, export and distribution of pharmaceuticals.

PROFIT BEFORE TAXES 3,072,265 €

VIANEX’s high-quality products and services have been trusted over time by large multinational pharmaceutical companies, striking long-term cooperation agreements. The export sector is a strategic choice for the company, with 60% of production destined for exports to as many as 30 countries worldwide.   

Giannakopoulos family became involved in the field of medicine back in 1924, through a central Athens pharmacy (on Piraeus St.). A decisive step in the firm’s development was taken by Paul Giannakopoulos in 1960, with the establishment of the company PHARMAGIAN, which in 1971 became a public limited company and was renamed to VIANEX SA. The company’s industrial activity begins in 1977, with the operation of its first factory. By 1999, VIANEX had acquired a total four state-of-the-art factories in Attica and Achaia, with the central offices and distribution center for final products based in Varybombi (Attica). Subsidiary VIAN SA was established in 1995, to take care of the handling and marketing of non-prescription medicinal products (OTC), dietary supplements, diagnostic and parapharmaceutical products. A milestone in the firm’s history was the acquisition of FARMANEL in the summer of 2019.

Returning to nature nowadays is one of the most lucrative business ventures constantly being developed by defining a large category of health products for external and internal use. For Power Health, however, it was the vision to offer human beings the power of nature through Food Supplements. Power Health was established in 1984 by Lili Perganta. For the first time, the term “natural food products” is introduced and Power Health becomes the first Greece-based alternative company. Power Health has under its ownership another two major brand names: Inalia (Natural Cosmetics) and Fleriana (Natural Repellents & Household Products). Power Health is a leading and pioneering Greek brand that creates, represents, imports, exports and distributes premium quality, innovative Health Food Supplements. Inalia (Nature’s Innovation) is the brand name for its natural cosmetics, as Power Health has also expanded its business to the cosmetics sector. Furthermore, the company strengthens its

ever-growing power by making a substantial move: the acquisition of Provipax SA (brand name Fleriana), boasting extensive expertise in natural repellents and household products. The establishment of its own Research & Development Department, staffed with specialized scientists, makes Power Health once more a pioneer as the only Greek company that designs its own alternative products for health, cosmetics and repellents. Innovative Greek formulations, many of which are unique at both European and global levels. Power Health has all the guarantees to represent Greek entrepreneurship by strategically investing in three pillars: Quality, Innovation and International Expansion. Quality is determined by raw materials and their harvest, at all stages of production. Quality means selection of natural ingredients with clinically proven action, efficacy and safety, which have officially health claims from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and

High quality products offered are made according to the highest international standards, such as GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), the streamlined Logistics facilities guaranteeing the quality and safety of products, the development of “Clean Label” products and also products for vegans.

Power Health also creates Oliviotic, the first natural antibiotic with clinical evidence, while invests in synergistic formulations by offering specialized solutions for health problems. Power Health works on expanding its export activity, which is the cornerstone of its economic strategy.

The Pharmaceutical Cooperative of Piraeus (PEIFASYN) in 2020 celebrates its 40th anniversary of uninterrupted presence and operation in Greece’s pharmaceutical industry. The Cooperative is one of the country’s three largest wholesale cooperative pharmaceutical companies, and in the domestic top-50 of the largest commercial companies across all sectors. Boasting a dynamic presence and activity, PEIFASYN currently carries a constantly expanding and upgraded portfolio of 24,000 items, distributed to pharmacies through its network of four (4) warehouses. At the same time, the company provides high quality integrated services to effectively meet member pharmacists’ expectations, while assisting and supporting pharmacies in their efforts to transform their operating model to meet the needs and health requirements of citizens in coming years. PEIFASYN Management adopts a daring attitude by implementing pioneering plans and investments to help the organization’s ongoing growth. In the past three years 2017-2019, investment funds valued at €4.0 million were used to upgrade equipment, expand a new building where it moved part of its operations, renovate its first privatelyowned building, upgrade and expand an automated sorting robotic system, renew its fleet, and further improve ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning). The Co-op now has two modern, privately-owned buildings in the Athens inner suburb of Renti, as well as three leased regional buildings, of a total floor space of 6,500sqm. A privately-owned fleet totaling 35 trucks operates under European GDP guidelines. The ERP supports all of the Cooperative’s activities, while logistics are taken care of by a Warehouse Management System (WMS). A robotic system performs 75% of daily production. The Co-op distributes some 120,000 product packages on a daily basis through a decentralized logistics network, with more than 50,000 invoice lines. Following the expansion of its DIGITAL branch in 2016, an electronic B2B platform has been made available to pharmacies, offering modern tools with advanced information services and market management, which won excellent reviews on the market

››››››

and was seen as a model by the competition. In addition, the organization entered the pre-wholesale pharmaceutical market, offering logistics services (3PL), and distributing products to other drug warehouses on behalf of pharma companies. Additional services provided to pharmacies include: IT and technological support; software and computer equipment; the PEIFASYN-TV and PEIFASYN-ADVICE systems for pharmacy commercial development; the application PEIFASYN B2B MOBILE to further enhance pharmacies’ “informationprofitability-time”; provision of specialized staff to pharmacies for the development of consumer products; organization of events at pharmacies; and, financial management advice. PEIFASYN is currently the main supplier and a major strategic partner of about 850 pharmacies in central and southern Greece, of which 536 are members (shareholders). In the past two years, the Co-op expanded sales --through more partnerships-- to a number of new areas, including Evia, Viotia, Karpenisi and central Athens. With a loyal and eager staff of 195 skilled executives and well-trained employees, PEIFASYN strongly believes in lifelong learning, and annually invests in further personnel training through specialized seminars, lectures and conferences. PEIFASYN collaborates with several pharmaceutical and parapharmaceutical companies, as well as with special consultants and communication experts, providing training in scientific and professional topics, both for pharmacists and assistant pharmacists. Up to date, it has organized three conferences, with attendants including invited speakers of international scope, presenting all the intricate issues arising from the 4th industrial-digital revolution in the field of health and the pharmaceutical market. Given the entry of international giants in Greece and all the upcoming changes in the global pharmacy industry, the Co-op is trying to prepare and fortify pharmacies against the threats from alternative channels and major pan-European pharmaceutical groups. Owing to a deeply-rooted environmental awareness, the Co-op makes every effort to


›››››› reduce the environmental footprint from the operation of the business, minimizing the use of plastics in distribution, e.g. though the use of reusable boxes. During the COVID-19 pandemic, PEIFASYN firmly stood by its member pharmacies, supporting their efforts to provide primary healthcare to patients and beyond. During the period that almost all businesses were shut down, and fear and insecurity prevailed in the community, pharmacies continued their operation, providing not only medical supplies but also giving the public valuable instructions, advice, encouragement for protection, and stimulation and encouragement. PEIFASYN is proud to have stood by and supported the effort of member pharmacists. Even before the onset of the new coronavirus in Greece, it had created a stockpile capable of meeting demand, while new partnerships were stricken to meet augmented needs. Thus, the uninterrupted supply of pharmacies was effectively maintained, while Co-op staff, working either at office or at home, often made superhuman efforts to be there for struggling pharmacists. Corporate social responsibility is an important and integral part of PEIFASYN culture. Thus, in addition to the various social benefits for the support of vulnerable social groups during the year, the Co-op during the lockdown period provided critical sup-

plies to healthcare providers, including major Tzaneio Hospital in Piraeus, several regional hospitals, health centers and EKAB (National Emergency Center), in the areas of Attica, Corinth, Argolida and Samos. The times ahead will certainly be different. Online pharmacies may at first seem safer, more modern or cheaper. But the needs will be communication, advice, and encouragement, in addition to protection of public health, primary care and treatment. It is only pharmacists, who -- as health scientists of the easiest access to the public -can meet such needs and do it right, being aware of their critical role and mission. The Cooperative will always stand by them.

Adelco history: From “birth” to now…

I 206 I

A family, almost a century of history, and a company that continues to enjoy a dynamic presence, are the essence Adelco’s corporate identity. The story behind the firm begins a short while after the Asia Minor Catastrophe and the destruction of Smyrna in 1922, when the Kolokotronis family was uprooted and their lives changed forever. The quiet and prosperous life of Greeks living in Asia Minor was overthrown by the Creco-Turkish War of 1919-1922, and Kolokotronis family was among 1.5 million Greeks who relocated as refugees in Greece. Here, they had to rebuild everything from scratch, and adapt to new conditions for their survival. The great fire of Smyrna had left a flame in their hearts which became a vision. In 1934, in Athens, brothers Omiros and Orestis Kolokotronis founded the E. Kolokotronis Athens Paint Factory SA, which was to play an important role in Modern Greece’s industrial history. Adelco’s growth was rapid and the company proved to be strong enough to survive World War II. Kolokotronis brothers, as employers, shared a very strong sense of humanity, and having lived through the Destruction of Smyrna, they felt the pain and struggle for survival, proving in practice their humanistic qualities and compassion. During the war and the famine, the Athens Paint Factory supported its employees and the local community with food and other vital supplies. Another strong element that runs deep in the company’s philosophy since its inception is the sense of “family” it shares with employees. In the 1950s, the company focused on pharmaceutical products, under the “Adelco” logo. It soon became a recognizable firm and one of the fastest growing companies in Greece. By gaining the recognition and appreciation of the medical community, it set even higher goals for stricter quality standards. However, apart from the pharmaceutical activity, Kolokotronis brothers decided to expand into other consumer products by offering a range of items for daily use. During the 1960s, Adelco introduced OM-OR, the first shampoo made and marketed in Greece, as well as the first fluoride Adelco Toothpaste. The two products dominated the market and established Adelco as a solid brand name. As the hard work and vision of the Kolokotronis brothers remained alive through the years, a new family member took over the reins of the company. In the early 1980s, Adelco - Athens Paint Company E. Kolokotronis Bros SA was founded, headed by Evangelos Kolokotronis, whose belief is: “High quality is the core value and the primary responsibility for a pharmaceutical company like Adelco.” Under E. Kolokotronis, the firm developed its dynamic path along the objective to play a dominant role in domestic and foreign markets. In the 1990s, the company embarked on an ambitious plan to expand activities internationally and gain increasing market shares. An independent export department was established and the company has since successfully entered several markets in the Middle East, North Africa, Eastern Europe, and the Far East. Enjoying a strong presence in international markets, Adelco, in 2000, focused on upgrading facilities. Investments were made in new production machinery and developing new products. Human resources has always been the driving force behind the firm’s efficiency and dynamic course through the years, with expert and loyal employees staffing the sales, marketing, exports, production, R&D, quality control and quality assurance departments. The company’s current portfolio includes a large number of activities both in the pharmaceutical sector and the field of cosmetics and food supplements. Adelco is a vertical and modern production unit (10,000sqm), with 90 specialized employees and executives, as well as with an effective network of representatives throughout Greece and internationally. Adelco has been on a path of steady evolution for over a century, maintaining a strong relationship of trust with consumers and always giving priority to the high quality of its products.

InterMed was founded in 1996 by Kleon Tsetis, a restless pharmacist who envisioned a pioneer manufacturing industry in the medical field, to contribute to the care treatment of everyday needs, as well as specific health and wellbeing issues that affect modern humans. During the years of its operation, InterMed has demonstrated a continuing upward course, focusing on exploring future prospects with regard to international scientific developments and constantly expanding its product portfolio, which is prominent for innovation and quality. The result of this course has been the establishment of InterMed in the Greek and international markets with brands such as Algofren, Unisept, Chlorhexil, Eva, Reval, Luxurious, and others. The firm now exports to as many as 36 countries around the world. The firm’s corporate strategy and contribution to the community are supported by its continued efforts for development, and the commitment and expertise of its experienced and well-trained personnel. However, InterMed also stands out not only for its dynamic brand and financial results, but for its Social Responsibility policy, just like its subsidiary Uni-pharma. This was evidenced once again during the biggest health crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, a month after a hefty Unikinon donation by Uni-pharma, on April 27, 2020, the president of OFET, Mrs. Ioulia Tseti, made another donation to the health system, this time of antiseptics. In particular, InterMed handed over to the Ministry of Health (after a free delivery of alcohol by the Ministry of Development), more than 14,000 liters of antiseptic for FREE, complying with WHO specifications, for use exclusively in hospitals.

EMMA’s already successful presence in Greece, combined with PROFARM’s long presence in the field of distribution, are the best guarantees for the creation of a highly reliable company with an extensive network and a wide range of products and services, aimed at serving Greek pharmacists. PROFARM co-founders Augustinos Kallivrousis and Theodoros Skylakakis, who are still at the helm of the company as President and CEO, respectively, will continue to implement their business plan with the valuable assistance of the people of EMMA, who combine their knowledge of Greek reality with the prestige of a major international investment fund. PROFARM remains adamant on its primary goal to realize its ambitious business plan of concentrating the drug distribution sector in Greece, through the creation of a true and unquestionable “national champion” company that will soon embark on its endeavor to change the map in Greece’s drug distribution.

The firm’s headquarters and production unit are located in Amisiana, Kavala, northern Greece, on privately-owned premises of a total floor space of ​​10,200 sqm. The state-of-the-art production facility is fully equipped with cutting-edge mechanical equipment, as BIKRE is constantly investing in the latest technology machinery, aiming at an on-going development of higher levels of output and quality assurance of its products. Daily inspections are carried out at all stages of production, from the receipt of raw material to final delivery of products, by the firm’s expert scientific staff. All European standards as per ISO 22000 Quality Assurance System are strictly observed and applied. Distribution and delivery of sensitive products is done primarily through a privately-owned fleet of 40 refrigerated trucks, thus reassuring our customers that every BIKRE-branded product they offer to consumers is of excellent, guaranteed quality. In more than 40 years of operation, the firm has managed to gain the trust of professionals in the catering industry, owing to the consistent high quality and special taste of its products. The R&D department closely monitors and is constantly updated on all the latest trends in global nutrition in order to create new, innovative products that aim to significantly upgrade the menus and services of businesses in the catering industry. The Authentic Northern Greece Gyros (vertical rotisserie) is considered BIKRE’s landmark product, whose unbeatable taste and quality has made it the number one choice of customers. In spite of a tough business environ-

››››››

ment, globally, in the first months of 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, BIKRE continued to implement and ultimately to complete its investment plan. Consistent with its commitment to customers, this major investment in the expansion and upgrade of production facilities --finished on time-- included the addition of another 2,500 sqm of warehouse floor space, and several new production lines for pre-grilled products. In addition, in 2020, for the first time, final consumers were given the choice to enjoy BIKRE products at home, after a new Retail line was launched, addressed to the supermarket segment, a market that until recently BIKRE had no activity. The new Retail series initially comprises five (5) key codes: pre-grilled pork gyros, pre-grilled chicken gyros, chicken fillet nuggets, burgers, and meatballs and soutzoukakia (spicy meatballs). In addition, in the context of expanding into new markets, the firm built up its human resources by creating an Exports Department. This has boosted the company’s extroversion, and it currently operates in a total of 15 countries, including major markets such as Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, France, etc. By expanding its export activity, BIRKE aims to spread traditional Greek tastes beyond the domestic market. The firm’s expansion to new markets was supported by the operation of a new Athens-based branch, which for the first time allowed the company to directly distribute its products to Attica stores, catering units and restaurants – without using other distribution networks. The opening of the Athens Branch further adds to BIKRE’s dynamic domestic presence, providing direct access to a market of some 5 million consumers. The BICRE family never forgets its human side: With love for the place and a vision for the economic well-being of the local community, Chatzigavriilidi Group has consistently employed more than 150 permanent staff members, consisting of skilled craftsmen and experienced executives.

EPSA S.A.

A story of refreshment

Michalis Tsaoutos, General Manager

The history of EPSA dates back to 1924, when there was a surplus of lemons in the geographical area of Pelion. Observing a sales increase of traditional lemonade by peddlers, the owners of EPSA set the goal to create a factory to produce soft drinks. A German chemical engineer was invited to assist with the production of lemonade. It was then that a secret recipe was born and is preserved until today. In addition to maintaining refrigerated rooms for fruit conservation and sales of ice, EPSA also entered the production of soft drinks. At that time, EPSA was the main distributor of power supply in its entire surrounding area. During the nine decades that passed since then, a lot of progress has been made. In 1937, EPSA was awarded the “Golden Award for Quality” at the Thessaloniki International Fair. EPSA’s noted glass bottle, that was meant to become the landmark of the brand, was designed in 1940. Today, EPSA is still situated at exactly the same place in Agria, in the city of Volos, maintaining modern facilities soft drink production. EPSA applies quality control systems ISO 9001:2015, ISO 22000:2005 and an IFS Food Standard certification. During the past few years, in addition to the classic Orangeade, Lemonade, Lemon Soda and Soda Water, many new products have been added: Iced Tea in several flavours, Tonic, Sour Cherry Drink, Organic Lemonade and Orangeade and Lemonade, Orangeade and EPSA Cola light (sweetened with stevia). Also, “light drops”, a liquid stevia sweetener and Pink Lemonade was some of our latest additions to our product portfolio. In April of 2019 we re-launched the EPSA Cola with sugar and as far as 2020 is concerned, we have two key launches. The first one is our Summer mix flavor with strawberry and basil, that will be available for a few months as a limited edition. The second one is a new subbrand of EPSA called You Cann, a Carbonated drink with hemp infusion, vegan certification and stevia infusion. The factory and offices are open every day from 07:00 am -17:00 pm.

nerships indicatively include the following companies: Kriton Artos, Violanda, Christodoulou Family, Dr Oetker, Palirria, Hell Energy, EPSA, Theoni and many more. After 10 years of experience, we have proven that ADUS is not only a service provider that can increase your company’s sales, but also a partner you can trust, to deal with crises and unexpected market events. A very recent example is the COVID-19 pandemic, which caused havoc in the global economy, unlike anything we have seen before. Our experience, expertise and ΙΤ infrastructure, gave us the capability not only to support our partners to get out of this crisis and to effectively cope with new challenges, but also to strengthen their position in market. As presence in supermarkets is necessary, ADUS never stops its operation, especially during the “lockdown” period, when a product’s shortage would have

an almost double cost for the company, as consumers would opt for an alternative, prescribing the product’s poor future sales. As health and safety is a paramount priority, ADUS adopted all safety measures introduced by the WHO (World Health Organization), to ensure health protection of both customers and staff. Meanwhile, our webbased structures and technologies limited the levels of our exposure. Our security-focused approach gave comfort to supermarket staff, in turn allowing us to continue our work. ADUS’ sales team continued their instore visits, monitoring and organizing our clients’ products on shelves. Thus, we managed to increase our partners’ sales and empower our position in the supermarket segment. ADUS is regarded as an indispensable partner for fast and effective product supply services. In addition, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread,

with a sense of responsibility for companies who face difficulties due to staff absence from sales departments, we decided to introduce a flexible cooperation scheme, for as long as the crisis lasts. Our proposed services can increase a company’s sales instantly, by frequent communication through scheduled in-store visits; specialized merchandising services, provided by our experienced representatives in supermarkets; logging, stock counting, putting products on the shelf and recommendations to the supermarket manager, on the amount of stock to order, a process which, as statistically proven, leads to indirect and continuous increased sales. Our services guarantee the continuous presence of products in supermarkets, while the product management process reflects our professionalism and benefits our clients with added value. We will continue to provide our high-quality services and exemplary customer support, despite the rapidly evolving events.

Serwood was established in  1970  and trades in  wooden structures. State-of-theart equipment consisting of C&N machines is housed in  10,000sqm, where  structures are carefully designed and constructed in detail and then taken apart and transferred to the building site where they are fitted with precision, speed and no mess or inconvenience caused to our clients. This procedure ensures the high quality of our constructions and the minimization of problems caused by unpredictable and unfavorable weather conditions. We use the new, revolutionary method of assembling pieces of woods with KNAPP fasteners, which allow the assembly and dismantling of a structure with no damage caused to the material whatsoever. In order to achieve the high-quality standards and accuracy required for Serwood constructions, we make provision for the appropriate conditions, the necessary equipment and the skilled staff.   In  Serwood we are particularly rigorous and fiddly with our constructions  and this is the

››››››

reason why our work involves a long process, from wood processing to structure fitting at our customers’ houses. Our customers are welcome to monitor the construction process from start to finish. No structure leaves our premises without having gone through the required quality check. Due to our strict quality requirements and high standards, we achieve the perfect fitting and minimum inconvenience for our clients. ROOF ENERGY HOUSES Energy efficient houses are the ones which are designed and built in accordance with the new Housing Efficiency Regulations. Our continuously developing company finds new, innovative ways of providing our clients with the best possible solutions. Thus, we have become the only company that can convert a house into an energy efficient one with the use of a specially patented thermal insulation material. The high level of thermal insulation pro-


››››››

tects houses against dampness and temperature fluctuations, guaranteeing an infinite lifespan for the buildings. We provide our clients with energy efficient class A+ roofs which ensure 70% lower energy consumption. The conversion or construction cost of an energy efficient roof is lower compared to that of a conventional house, and at the same time its running costs are lower in the long term. An energy efficient roof is 100% thermally insulated without any ruptures. This is achieved by applying on the whole surface of the wooden roof a specially patented 7-cm thick thermal insulation material. This means that we do not place wooden beams on the roof so there are no ruptures on the insulation and as a result there is no heat loss. This way, a roof is converted into an energy efficient one with unruptured thermal insulation and as much as 70% saving in heating costs. This material is specially patented and attested by the European Union.

Douros SA is a purely Greek menswear company with a tradition of over half a century, based in Patra and publicly traded since August 2000. It has a wide network of 30 retail stores throughout Greece under the Dur sign, including several shop-in-shop outlets, while it is supported by an equally strong wholesale network. The company employs a direct and indirect staff of 80, actively contributing to strengthening the Greek economy and reducing unemployment. Aside from its domestic business, Dur exports to Middle East, Lebanon, Albania, Cyprus, Czech Republic and Bulgaria. Douros SA, has successfully completed some restructuring moves mainly on operational level, and has stabilized its sales, implementing its further growth plans to create new points of sale. Recently, the company opened its store in Stoa Nikoloudi in the center of Athens, a few months after the opening of two new stores, in Nea Ionia and in the center of Athens on Kriezotou Street, which are part of the wider development of the DUR network in Attica region. The firm’s modern and up-to-date e-shop, enables consumers to buy high quality clothing saving time and enjoying the available offers. Moreover, the firm continues successfully its integrated business while implementing its “offer” system throughout the year, to attract even more consumers, expecting an increase in sales. Douros’s philosophy is focused on the Greek consumer who, irrespective of age, wants to stand out in a casual but elaborate outfit. The firm’s goal is to maintain a long-term relationship of loyalty, always re- sponding to the desire to combine their outfit with a brandname, design and quality at the best price. The Douros family, beyond their business mission, also have a strong presence in the cultural, social and sports events in Greece and particularly in the city of Patras. COMPANY HIGHLIGHTS ● T he idea of the DUR brand started 60 years ago, when founder Nikos Douros began commercial and production activity in cotton garments. ● In  1971, the company acquired the corporate form it has today. ● In the 1970s, the firm developed a very remarkable export potential. ● T he position of the company further strengthened in foreign markets in the 90s, taking part in major international garment fairs like SEHM Paris (Salon International de l‘Habillement Masculin), the Koeln- messe Germany and the Pitti Uomo Italy. ● In the 1990s, the specialist retail chain was created under the name Dur Escape Land. It has been a particularly successful move since it was made without affecting the DUR brand wholesale network. ● E normous investments were facilitated by the company’s listing on the Athens Stock Exchange in August 2000, raising 7.63 million euros. As a result, Douros SA managed to strengthen even more its foundations as it reduced short-term debt and further fortified is own retail network. ● T he second generation of the company, led by Theodore Douros as CEO, assumed the management of the firm and revived it through ambitious growth plans.

A

large number of companies from various sectors of the economy, and many charities and social benefit foundations and organizations contributed to the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, hitting Greece and the entire world. From private health and the food industry to energy and shipping, the response has been great and the solidarity practical, either in the form of funding for medical supplies/equipment or in the form of discounts and offers to consumers.   On the one hand, this contribution helped bolstering the public health system with medical equipment and supplies, such as masks and uniforms, in the tough fight against the new coronavirus. On the other hand, citizens who have been hit hard by the crisis, are being provided with a number of relief measures, partly alleviating the financial burden they are facing. The Athens News Agency - Macedonian Press Agency (ANA-MPA) embarked on an effort to document the way in which the private sector assisted the state and the community in the struggle to curb the spread of the pandemic in Greece. While donations and offers by businesses are still being made, this report covers those made by April 4, 2020. The list of companies in the ANA-MPA report should be complemented with a multitude of private companies, which proved their sensitivity to social needs. Such companies include Greek pharmaceutical companies,

such as Uni-pharma, subsidiaries of multinational companies such as Novartis, supermarket chains such as Sklavenitis, and many more. The list of companies, organizations and institutions is large, and here is just some of them: PPC, Hellenic Petroleum, Motor Oil, ADMIE, Mytilinaios, ELPEDISON, HERON, NRG, Zenith, Volton, Nova Energy, GEK Terna, Paul & Alexandra Canellopoulos Foundation, Theodoros and Gianna Angelopoulos, John S.

›››››› significant efforts of the front-line heroes in the fight against the pandemic, the SNF offers an honorary allowance (valued at €7.5 million) to about 5,000 nurses, doctors and cleaning staff working in the ICUs of Covid-19 reference hospitals and clinics.  In addition, with a donation of more than $17.8 million (€16.4 million), the SNF will support the renovation of 19 hospitals in Greece in order to add a total of 177 ICU beds and 46 enhanced care beds, as well as to implement an educational program for ICU staff. Specifically, the ISN will fund a comprehensive training program for all ICU physicians and nurses, for 5 years. After that period, the program will be run by Greek State funding. Finally, in close cooperation with the Greek State, the SNF is donating more than $4 million (€3.74) to help bolster Health Institutions in conducting mass tests to diagnose Covid-19.  The John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation donated medical and technological equipment to the Intensive Care Unit of the First University Pulmonary Clinic of the “Sotiria” General Hospital of Thoracic Diseases of Athens, to facilitate the operation of two additional ICU clinics. The Foundation also announced

a donation to the “Thriasio” General Hospital of Elefsina, a Covid-19 reference hospital, comprising modern medical equipment in the Emergency Department (TEP), and the Intensive Care Unit of Latsio Burn Center, which is an integral part of the hospital. The Foundation also actively supports the National Health System and the Greek society in a spirit of solidarity, through a very timely and targeted donation to the National Blood Donation Center (EKEA). The donation is part of a National Health System upgrade program aimed at enhancing the readiness and timely treatment of emergencies, of a total cost of €5.0 million. The specific donation was designed and implemented by the Foundation in memory of those who lost their lives in the catastrophic 2018 fires. This donation, of a total budget of €310,000, concerns the following:   1. Procurement of required equipment for the operation of EKEA’s Fixed Blood Collection Room of West Attica, in Egaleo. Lately, the role of the fixed room has been upgraded, as its operation is especially important for the maintenance of blood stocks in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. At the

The specific one is located in the courtyard of the “ELPIS” hospital. 2. P  rocurement of four fully-equipped vans to be used as mobile blood collection units. Discounts and offers by energy market companies During the period of the health crisis, the majority of companies operating in the country’s energy market (both public and private sectors), offered their customers several discounts and offers. They also made significant donations to the country’s health system, in both cash and equipment. The pandemic has had a mobilizing effect on energy companies, which are putting in efforts, first, to support their customers and, second, to curb the wave of bills in arrears that has swollen again in recent weeks. Offers to customers made by energy companies are grouped as follows: PPC: From March 26, 2020 and for the following three months, the Company offers:  ■W  aiving the fixed charge for all lowvoltage customers. ■8  % discount to vulnerable customers of category B & C (elderly aged 70 or over, people in mechanical support, who are not included in the CTO). Vulnerable customers - beneficiaries of the Social Household Tariff continue to be priced with special preferential tariffs and large discounts. ■A  5-euro discount for all e-bill customers, old and new. ■8  % discount for households and lowvoltage businesses with a consumption of more than 2,000 KWh, so that they do not have to pay extra for the homeisolation time. In addition, the company decided to donate more than €5 million to cover

In this context, it purchased 1.5 million masks (FPP2Q and FPP3Q), 75,000 protective uniforms (TYVEC 800 Series Q and TYVEC 600 Series Q), and 50,000 protective glasses. HELLENIC PETROLEUM: The company has donated millions of euros for the procurement of medical equipment, supplies and covering other expenses related to dealing with the pandemic crisis. In this context, the firm commissioned and imported from USA two molecular diagnosis machines for coronavirus tests, as well as a significant number of special reagents to meet urgent hospital needs. In addition, it paid for specialized laboratory equipment at the Attikon Hospital University Respiratory Clinic, for the study and treatment of coronavirus effects on the respiratory system.
