The Southeast Europe Energy Forum (SEEF2023) is organized for the 7th consecutive year in Thessaloniki by the Hellenic-American Chamber of Commerce and the Hellenic Society for Energy Economics, in collaboration with the US Embassy in Greece and with the strategic support of the US think-tank Atlantic Council and the US Chamber of Commerce.
The Forum will be held on Friday, September 8, 2023, at “The MET” hotel in Thessaloniki, as has been established in recent years, one day before the official opening of the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF).
The ever-changing global economic and business environment is shaping the road map of the next day and creating new conditions in international markets. Investments in the energy sector are a strategic priority of national and European policies, as they contribute to both the economic development of countries and the protection of the environment. Energy security and adaptation to the conditions created by the environmental crisis occupy a central position in the country’s strategy, promoting an integrated approach in several areas. At the same time, Europe, in its effort to ensure its self-sufficiency, is called upon to find effective solutions, while maintaining the green energy policy that has been adopted and avoiding potential environmental burdens. On the other side of the Atlantic, the United States is ready and willing to make a decisive contribution to the energy supply of the Old Continent and to meet medium and long-term energy needs by exporting US liquefied natural gas (LNG).
In this complex geopolitical environment, as part of its work, the Southeast Europe Energy Forum (SEEF2023), will focus on a number of axes of great importance and dynamic footprint.
