The post-pandemic years have witnessed the resilience of supply chains, leading to a significant increase in trade. The trade between the two nations has grown from approximately USD 690 million in FY 2021 to USD 1950 million in FY 2023, said Shri Sanjeev Agrawal, President, PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry in a press statement issued today.

Going ahead, trade trajectory is expected to touch USD 5 billion by 2030, said Shri Agrawal.

It is highly appreciable that Indian investments are attracting attention from numerous Greek companies, with various Greek conglomerates expressing interest in engaging in business activities in India. This includes exporting olive oil, olives, wine, cheese, fruits, fruit juice, consumer goods, construction materials, and aluminum products to India, said Shri Sanjeev Agrawal.

Significant investments in Greece have been made by several Indian conglomerates, and it is projected that these investments will serve as a catalyst for further growth in the coming year. The expanding areas of cooperation between the two countries are expected to play a pivotal role in driving this progress, he said.

Going ahead, the future holds a promising outlook for the trade trajectory, as the strengthening of supply chains and the advancement of bilateral economic relations between the two countries are set to propel its growth. Anticipated to double every five years, the trade trajectory will be fueled by the growing people-to-people connections and the reinforced bilateral economic ties, said Shri Agrawal.
