Welcome to (Online) Delphi

Good morning delegates and welcome to this year’s Delphi Economic Forum, which will be taking place online, in a bold and innovative experiment in thought-leadership, which will tackle the realities of the post Covid-19 world head on.

Due to the exciting developments in technology that have made it possible to stay connected throughout this crisis, for the next four days, more than 200 speakers will come together to provide 40 hours of high-end content, presenting thousands of ideas which will spur us into action and inform our views of "The Day After", which is, after all, the main theme of this year’s forum.

Leading minds in policy, business and academia will convene in a digital conference which is the first of its kind, providing a broad view on the impact of the pandemic across the economy and society, spotlighting what is required to ensure a safe and successful recovery.

This daily email will serve as a guide to the conference’s agenda, summarizing key insights coming out of the convention. The first day of Delphi Economic Forum V is finally here, so let’s dive right in.

A Message From Papastratos

Over the last few months, we came face to face with an unimaginable threat, which violently changed our habits, destroying all sense of normalcy. We adjusted quickly. We operated with transparency, emphasizing cooperation and planning. We learned to trust this unprecedented synergy of citizens, businesses and the state, which has been lauded internationally. We won the battle of the present and equipped ourselves with the knowledge to fight the battles of the future. Because, if this crisis proved anything, it is that placing our faith in science, without reservation or prejudice, is vital for the common good. Just as we trusted scientists at the apex of this crisis, so we must do now, with science in our minds and cooperation in our hearts. We are evolving #prostokalytero. We owe that to the Greece of tomorrow, which is being built today.
