The Greek government attaches great importance to Greece’s relationship with Saudi Arabia and the prospects for Saudi investment in the country, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Monday during a meeting with Saudi Investment Minister Khalid bin Abdulaziz Al Falih.

The main focus of the meeting was on further strengthening the Greek-Saudi relations in areas such as energy, tourism, shipping, culture, health and agri-food products.
