This year marks our tenth anniversary edition: ‘Our World X’, and we selected Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis as the national leader that is inspiring change and evolution. Prime Minister Mitsotakis is one of the few heads of state globally that managed to overcome the wave of populism that has swept the planet; his country now disenchanted with the previously growing extreme right political forces. With just over half a year under his belt as the country’s leader, Greece’s economy has rebounded, investment is growing, and above all, the uncertainty of Mitsotakis’ European counterparts about the future and previously perceived potential for instability has faded.
