  • [01] SPOKESMAN - ANNAN PLAN

    A UN-brokered agreement between the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities, to help resume substantive negotiations leading to a political settlement in Cyprus, is the only significant and practical move made, in the past three years, the Government believes.

    Speaking at his daily press briefing, Government Spokesman Vasilis Palmas also said that provisions of the UN-proposed solution plan (the Annan plan), which was rejected by most Greek Cypriots in a referendum in April 2004 and approved by the Turkish Cypriots, will reappear in any future talks.

    We have before us an agreement relating to procedures and the only substantive and practical step since the April 2004 referendum is the July 8th agreement, Palmas said.

    Replying to questions, he said that if and when something substantive emerges from this procedure in relation to the resumption of negotiations with a view to make progress or to reach a comprehensive settlement, this shall be dealt with accordingly.

    He noted that circumstances were different in 2004 or 2005 and now the situation is different and should be handled in an appropriate manner.

    [02] CTO - INCENTIVES PLAN

    The Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) has unveiled a draft outline of its plan to attract investment in the tourist industry, to be funded jointly by the European Union and the CTO.

    Speaking at a press conference CTOs Director of Tourism Division Lefkos Filaktides said the incentives plan is part of the Strategy for Tourism Development and provides for less hotel beds, a change in accommodation patterns to render Cyprus more competitive.

    The draft plan, he explained, is expected to be finalized in October this year and by March next year the CTO will be ready to examine the first applications, with the initial funding expected to be allocated in the second half of 2008.
