Although the second day was a complete success for the Greek delegation, which certified the growing dynamics of the domestic ecosystem, the need for step-up was also felt both in terms of organization and in the number of members that make up the Greek mission. The president of SEKEE, George Markatos, stressed, among other things, that “it is everyone’s responsibility to exploit the potential of the Greek ecosystem, while all actors should strengthen the effort of the tech companies, with the state taking on a leading role.” As far as the companies are concerned, according to the president of SEKEE, they should increase their participation in events of the Mobile World Congress in order for the Greek mission to grow and reap the great benefits.
