    Speaking at a forum organized Thursday night by the Cyprus Embassy Trade center in cooperation with the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry, President Christofias stressed that Cyprus is in comparison to other countries, a paradise for investments because it has a low tax rate, a stable economy, a macroeconomic stability and a left wing government. This is a guarantee for stability, he added.
