Export Revival Greece

Athens

Greece Export Region

The legendary capital of Greece — Athens — is one of the world’s oldest cities with rich historic and cultural legacy, embodied in unique local collectibles. Having a long tradition in textile production and various crafts, today Athens offers a wide variety of both antique and contemporary items for every taste.

Rare Collectibles

These unique items will find recognition of vintage souls. Perhaps a comic book published in the 1950s or Smurfs action figures from the 1980s are the perfect missing pieces for your collection? Not to mention that antique vases, lighters, plates and other collectibles would be an ideal present to someone sharing the enthusiasm for the old treasures. Consider a postcard from the 1960s depicting a ski resort as a gift idea for travel lovers, and a Paul Newman’s photo — for old movies and race cars’ fans.

With Greece having a strong tradition of Orthodox Christian faith, a wide range of authentic and high quality religious items is available. The pieces — including vigil lamps, censers, thuribles and liturgical crosses — are useful not only for their intended purpose, but are pleasing to the eye due to the aesthetic beauty. Take a minute to appreciate the pectoral cross encrusted in Swarovski crystallized elements and the Christian Cross Crucifix depicting Jesus Christ made of beeswax mastic and incense.

Export Revival, a part of our global initiative for SMBs support, could not be accomplished without such a legendary location as the city of Athens. More than 100 local SMBs have applied for our program, aimed at educating retail companies to master online export sales, and 67 of them were selected for participation. Currently approximately 12,000 sellers from Greece are present on eBay and together with our partners we aspire to create even more opportunities for them, by empowering SMBs to take full advantage of the digital commerce. It is especially important today, under the circumstances of COVID-19 pandemic, when marketplaces as eBay provide main opportunities for accessing new customers across the globe and growing businesses despite the turbulent times and restrictions.

Initiatives such as the Athens Export Revival program are the “cure” to the current conditions of the Greek market. The program – although it has needed to quickly adjust to the new circumstances – managed to be successfully completed and made it till today. In this crucial time, the training on the use of digital tools is proved to be valuable – now more than ever – for the empowerment of the businesses and the enhancement of their extroversion.

I’d like to welcome the completion of the Athens Export Revival program by eBay, aimed at strengthening the skills of Greek SMBs in e-сommerce and its initiative to create a website that will host the Greek businesses, which participated in the program. In a changing world, as we enter the new digital era, taking advantage of such opportunities can decisively contribute to the enhancement of the competitiveness of SMBs in Greece, which can now access the global market, and many of them can lead to synergies.

SMBs is an important pillar of Greek economy that could play a central role in its development and productive transformation. However, the pressures that emerged due to the crisis and then the pandemic have left a strong imprint. Initiatives such as Export Revival program by eBay are very useful as they help these companies enter the global market and accelerate their productive growth.
