Lykourezos Law Offices

organised with great success an International Energy Conference under the title:

“Energy without Frontiers: Market Liberalisation and the Challenges for Regulation, Competition and the Security of Supply”

Grande Bretagne Hotel, 22 May 2008

The conference focused on the current prospects of full market liberalisation and on the conditions that are necessary for further developing competition and attracting private investments. The conference also dealt with the current developments in the Greek and regional energy markets which, after persistent failures to open up to competition over the past few years, show signs of prompting substantial investment activity.

The Greek Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Mr. Petros Doukas made the welcome speech, while in the afternoon

the Former German Chancellor Mr. Gerhard Schröder
and the Greek Minister of Development Mr. Christos Folias addressed the keynote speeches of the Conference.
