Greece meets all requirements to become an energy hub
The energy sector is one of the key growth drivers that will speed up Greece’s exit from the economic crisis and the country has all the prerequisites to become an energy hub in Southeast Europe, said Deputy Foreign Minister for International Economic Relations Dimitris Mardas on Wednesday, addressing the 20th National Energy Conference titled “Energy & Development 2015”.
Mardas said this will upgrade the country’s geopolitical weight and will end energy isolation of the broader region of the Balkans.
Highlighting the government’s priorities in energy, the minister said these are the diversification of the sources and routes of natural gas in order to enhance national and European energy security and, at the same time, create a significant benefit for consumers.
