Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis: “Greece will become a world hub for cloud”

Microsoft has announced its intention to build a new data centre in Greece as it invests in cloud services infrastructure in the country. Speaking at a virtual event in Athens on Monday, Microsoft President Brad Smith said the new data centre would be beneficial to business, consumers and banks, Reuters reports.

“We are investing today in research and technology in Greece,” Smith said through a translator. “There will be benefits for Greece given our commitment to training for thousands of people.”

Separately, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said the data centre would bring long-term financial benefits of €1 billion to Greece.

“Greece will become a world hub for cloud,” Mitsotakis said, adding that the state-of-the-art centre would also upgrade the country as an investment destination.
