Mitsotakis argued that Alexandroupolis (Dedeagac), a northern region of Greece, has great strategic importance, and Greece has become an important gate in energy flow to Europe.
He also said the country has also become a hub in the field of data stock and management with the investments of companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Google.
