Global Hellenism constitutes a powerful force for the development of the country

Komvos was created to contribute to the development of the country. It is not another think tank. After all, there are enough and good ones in Greece. Komvos is a think-act, because it undertakes initiatives for the implementation of actions that, taking advantage of the dynamic of Hellenism, will have immediate effect to Greek society, throughout the improvement of the everyday life of Greeks, through the improvement of the economic, cultural, and scientific level.

The President of Komvos presented the positions and objectives of the organisation.

The second one concerns an initiative, which we call “ENNOIA”, and its purpose is to strengthen Greek households in taking their financial decisions.
The third action consists of the exploitation of the perspectives of a synergy between Health-Biotechnology and Economy with the aim of promoting the interaction in these fields.
