Hide / Show Abstract

OECD Environmental Performance Reviews provide independent assessments of countries’ progress in achieving domestic and international environmental policy commitments and goals, together with policy-relevant recommendations.  They address the management of air, water, waste, biodiversity, and land; they examine the relationship between economic and social policy and the environment; and they describe the subject country’s international co-operation in such areas as climate change, marine pollution and development co-operation.  Each report includes a broad range of economic and environmental statistical data. On average, five or six countries are reviewed each year.

    Conclusions and Recommendations
    Between 2000 and 2008, Greece’s economy grew rapidly, on average by more than 4% per year. Per capita GDP has risen and is now close to the OECD-Europe average. The adoption of the Euro in 2001 and the public works associated to the Athens 2004 Olympics are among the major drivers of this economic growth. Greece has also been a major beneficiary of EU funds, which have contributed to modernise and develop infrastructure networks (e.g. transport, energy, water), to upgrade competitiveness and human resources and to address regional disparities. Greece has an open economy, with a relatively small industrial base and as industrial production. The tourism and construction sectors play an important and increasing role, contributing to 18% and 8.5% of GDP respectively. Greece has a longstanding tradition of maritime transport.
