The majority of Greeks would like to go into business for themselves, according to the annual Amway Global Entrepreneurship report, though the percentage of those with a positive attitude towards self-employment has dipped from last year.

The survey, which covered 45 markets and conducted interviews with more 50,000 men and women aged 14-99, found that 64 percent of Greeks would be inclined to open their own business, compared with 69 percent in 2015. In the European Union as a whole, 74 percent had a positive view of entrepreneurship but just 39 percent could imagine starting their own business.

Forty-two percent of Greek respondents said the reason they are attracted to the idea of starting a business is that they would like to be their “own boss,” while 38 percent said they believed it would lead to self-fulfillment and 33 percent saw it as an attractive prospect for having a second income.

Meanwhile, 36 of respondents said they believe they have the right skills to go into business, while 55 percent said that they would not be dissuaded by family or friends from realizing their plans.
