Greece is to renew its participation in the world΄s biggest information technology and telecommunications exhibition, CeBIT 2013, following many years of absence, with a national pavilion arranged by the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) – Helexpo.
CeBIT 2013 is being held in Hannover, Germany on March 5-9 and 20 businesses and associations, as well as 10 state organisations will be participating in the Greek mission.
According to AMNA, the sector of IT and communications technologies is the most dynamic in Greece, with some 4,500 companies and more than 270,000 employees.
It is estimated that should tax services were properly computerised, Greece could secure collection of revenues of up to 20 billion euros annually from tax evasion, given that the paraeconomy΄s turnover is estimated at 60 billion euros a year.
Hannover΄s international CeBIT exhibition appeals to users of the IT and communications technologies industry, wholesale and retail trade, the services sector, government organisations and scientific agencies, as well as to the fanatics of new technology. It is regarded a springboard for the exchange of experience and expertise on modern trends.
