Our philosophy

The Economic Forum of Thrace is an independent, European organization incorporated as a Greek not-for-profit foundation. Our philosophy is entrepreneurship in the public interest.

We argue that economic progress without social development is not sustainable, while social development without economic progress is not feasible. Moreover, governments and businesses cannot meet the key challenges alone.

Strategic insights cannot be passively acquired in a world characterized by complexity and fragility. They are best developed through dialogue with the most knowledgeable people. Therefore, our mission is to bring together leading managers, economists, politicians, intellectuals and journalists from Greece and abroad to discuss actual economic questions at the Financial Conference.

We believe that Thrace, with its strategic location and its leading abilities, can play an independent role between governments, businesses, and civil societies.
