“WE SUPPORT TRADE AND THE
WE STRENGTHEN GREECE TOGETHER.”
The Hellenic Confederation of Commerce and Entrepreneurship (HECC) is the tertiary organization of the Greek trade, created by the need for significant local trade associations to cooperate and join forces to deal with the everyday problems of the trade sector.
Since 1994, it has acquired its current form, ESEE, beyond and outside of trade union logic, without party affiliations. It has institutionally and responsibly represented the commercial sector and small and medium entrepreneurship.
Having in its power 17 Federations, 340 Trade Associations, and 5 Associations of Trade Representatives from all over the country, today it is the responsible “voice” of Greek trade and small and medium entrepreneurship, the firm representative of the “backbone” of the Greek economy, in Greece and the abroad.
However, the ESEE is not limited to the role of representative. With its actions, it supports – in practice – businesses, helping them to modernize and grow through innovation and extroversion.
Society is the core and basis of every position, proposal, and action of ESEE. Operating with a sense of responsibility towards society and employees, ESEE does not ignore that the development of the economy is inextricably linked to social cohesion and progress.
