Referring to the progress of the Group, Space Hellas Executive President, Mr Spyridon D. Manolopoulos stated: “2022 could be considered as an important year of developments as the country shows significant signs of economic recovery with growth rates of more than 5%, but also strengthening of investment activity with capital inflows from abroad. Geopolitical developments with unforeseen consequences and strong inflationary trends affecting the daily lives of citizens, but also businesses, create an explosive puzzling business environment internationally, but also creates significant opportunities for growth and expansion of the market for companies that can respond to modern conditions, have know-how and significant added value in the sectors in which they operate. Space Hellas is one of these companies and continues to be at the forefront of developments with the implementation of important digitization and infrastructure modernization projects in both the public and private sector. With the recent additions of SingularLogic and SenseOne, the Group approaches the ICT market in a holistic way, emphasizing Digital Integration and high value-added services, actively participating in the bidding of new projects tendered by both the RRF (Recovery and Resilience Facility), the new NSRF (National Strategic Reference Framework) and the Development Law. Despite delays in the implementation of projects, it continues to maintain positive growth rates, which is also expected for the second half of 2022”.
