When asked about these meetings, Rena Dourou stated:
“We have concluded, together with women representatives of the Greek community in the USA, a series of informative meetings in Washington, at the State Department, the House and the Senate.
Greek-American relations were at the heart of our debates with US officials, congresswomen/congressmen and senators, in the light of the recent regional developments in our region.We have ascertained the strong links between Greece and the USA and the great prospects regarding the deepening of the defence cooperation between the two countries, given the leading role of Greece as a factor of peace, stability and prosperity in the wider region of the south-eastern Mediterranean.”
On Monday, Rena Dourou, visited the Greek pavilion at the International Vinexpo 2018 Exhibition in New York. Responding to questions, the Regional Governor stressed that “Attica has an important comparative advantage – the vineyards of Attica, which produce wines of special quality. We support these producers because we believe that the value of the primary sector of Attica extends beyond Attica and should play an important role in the productive reconstruction of Greece and the rebuilding of the national economy.”
