Amidst a decade of economic turmoil, Greece has emerged as a vital NATO ally with a proven track record of dedication to transatlantic security cooperation. Greece is one of the few NATO members to reach NATO’s 2% of GDP target for defense spending, and the country continues to serve as a critical hub for ally training and operations in the region.

The Atlantic Council partners with the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and the Athex Group for a discussion on “Greece as a Geostrategic Ally.” Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt, US ambassador to Greece; Mr. George Chouliarakis, alternate Greek minister of finance; and Simos Anastasopoulos, president of AmCham Greece, join a conversation with nonresident senior fellow Katerina Sokou to explore US-Greece security cooperation in the Western Balkans and Mediterranean region and discuss American strategy toward the region.
