The panel discussion will explore the current size and structure of Greek exports and the capacity constraints that are preventing an export-led growth model from underpinning Greece’s economic rebound. It will argue that Greece has significant advantages in various sectors, including agribusiness and minerals and also tradable services. However, a recent enterprise performance survey shows that high taxes, political instability, corruption and lack of access to finance are among the main problems facing Greek exporters. If these challenges are addressed effectively, they will relax the capacity constraints facing exporters and close the gap in the coming years between potential and actual exports, thus helping Greece to a sustainable recovery.
