    [07] Greek Foreign Minister - Cyprus question

    Athens, Mar 1 (CNA) - Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou today said all new parametres which strategically affect Cyprus, including the Greco- Turkish dialogue and the European Union aspect, should be used appropriately in efforts to reach a settlement on the island.

    [08] Rolandis - Seminar - USA

    Nicosia, Mar 1 (CNA) - The success of Cyprus in the economic sphere is attributed, inter alia, to the adoption of a market oriented economic system, the pursuance of sound macroeconomic policies by the government as well as the existence of dynamic and flexible entrepreneurs and a highly educated labour force, Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism Nicos Rolandis said. Addressing a seminar entitled "The New Industrial Policy of Cyprus for the Development of High Technology Industries in Cyprus" held yesterday at the Institute of Technology of Massachusetts, USA, Rolandis said that "the high level of development of Cyprus has been a significant factor in the decision of the European Union (EU) to include Cyprus in the group of the first six countries with which it has started accession negotiations in 1998".
