“Allow me to express my gratitude to the members of the Board of Directors for the high confidence they have shown me with this election. I accept the chairmanship as a recognition of the uncompromising standards I impose in my work, but at the same time as a long-term commitment to the Hellenic Business Council’s vision and goals for development, and to each of its members. I promise that I will continue the vigorous activity of the organization to stimulate the fruitful dialogue between institutions and businesses, for the successful implementation of the best trade and business practices, so that we continue to contribute to the stable economic development in our country and to the maintenance of good relations with our partners", those were the words Mrs. Petia Dimitrova addressed the attendees.
