The visit is part of a series of three sig­nif­i­cant events planned by the gov­ern­ment from Septem­ber through to Novem­ber in its bid to jump-start growth through for­eign in­vest­ment.

To this end, the first Coun­cil of Co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Greece and Italy will be launched on the Io­nian is­land of Corfu on Septem­ber 14. Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras is ex­pected to meet with his Ital­ian coun­ter­part Paolo Gen­tiloni.

Athens is also plan­ning to host the 2nd EU-Arab World Sum­mit on Novem­ber 9-10.

The con­fer­ence is set to be or­ga­nized by the pri­vate sec­tor and will be at­tended by se­nior gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials, busi­ness­men and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of funds from the Arab world.
