The privatization of Greek assets offer some serious investment opportunities, according to the CEO of Lamda Development, which specializes in Greek real estate, who told CNBC that foreign investors just need more confidence.
"I believe that the Greek government has understood that the creation of jobs is the number one factor, not only for the economy to work but for the psychology (towards Greece) to turn around. In order for job creation to happen, you have to believe in investments," Lamda Development's Odysseas Athanasiou told CNBC in Athens on Thursday.
"The prime indicator of this shift in the economy and growth will be the attraction of investment capital and the building of confidence for foreign investors to invest in Greece, this is the prime gap," he added.
Athanasiou stressed that the "prime thing" was for Greece to become "more extrovert" in its relationship with investors.
"(This is) how we build confidence and restore the country's credibility – this can come through privatizations but also through making people believe that we walk the talk," he said.
Greece is currently struggling to reach growth targets and reform milestones that are demanded by its creditors as part of a third, 86-billion-euro ($96-billion) bailout agreed by the Socialist Syriza-led government last summer.
