Global Leaders Forum: Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Opposition Leader and President of Greece's New Democracy Party

March 13, 2018 • 5:00 – 6:00 pm EDT
Please join us on Tuesday, March 13 for a conversation with Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the leader of Greece’s center-right opposition New Democracy Party. As Greece emerges from eight years of being under the restrictions of three bailout packages, continues to confront a migration crisis, becomes an important logistics hub for China, addresses growing tensions in Cyprus, and is re-engaging with Skopje to negotiate an agreed name for the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Athens is increasingly becoming a critical actor in the Eastern Mediterranean region. As opposition leader, Mr. Mitsotakis will share his insights on the most critical issues facing Greece today, the importance of the U.S.-Greek bilateral partnership and transatlantic relationship to bring greater stability to the region, and the future prospects for Greek parliamentary elections.

This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.
