Minister proposes scheme to seek investors among refugees, migrants
Alternate Foreign Minister Dimitris Mardas on Sunday suggested the Greek government may look for potential investors among wealthy refugees and migrants by examining the economic profile of new or potential arrivals.
Speaking on Skai TV, Mardas said “our job is to seek out investments and we’re looking everywhere, in the Middle East, the Far East and the United States.”
He said that he will propose a scheme whereby the Greek authorities identify newcomers who have deposits in excess of 250,000 euros at foreign banks and would consider investing in Greece in exchange for “preferential treatment in the purchase of a house or as to their right to remain in the country.”
Mardas said that the legislation already exists that would allow such as a scheme.
