    EU accession created important opportunities-challenges,says minister

    by Gregoris Savva

    Nicosia, May 3 (CNA)--Cyprus' accession to the European Union has brought about important changes as well as major challenges for the local economy and the business world, Cypriot Commerce, Industry and Tourism Minister George Lillikas has said.

    In an interview with CNA to mark one year since accession, Lillikas called on Cypriot businesspeople to end its ''inward-looking policy'' and ''launch an attack'' to find partners in Europe and elsewhere to exploit Cyprus' central position in the region.

    According to the Minister, efforts to promote Cyprus as a regional business hub have borne fruit since one of the largest global shipping companies is in consultations with the Cyprus Ports Authority to use the island as a transit station, something which is expected to double the capacity of Limassol port, on the south-eastern coast.

    Lillikas said that no department at his Ministry has remained unchanged since accession, adding that before May 1, 2004, when Cyprus joined the EU, some departments were barely kept in existence, whereas now they have a pivotal role to play.
