    The Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism Antonis Paschalides signed today a Memorandum of Understanding in the energy sector with his Rumanian counterpart, Minister of Finance, Commerce and Business Environment Ion Ariton.

    According to an official announcement, the MoU signed by the two sides concerns mostly the sector of Renewable Energy Sources.

    Moreover, Paschalides said that the objective of the meeting was to strengthen the relationship with Rumania, while both sides agreed that there is room for further cooperation in many sectors of the economy.

    He added that the MoU provides both sides with the possibility of exchanging delegations and technical know-how.

    Asked to elaborate on the terms of the MoU, the Minister said that Rumania may assist in the biofuel area, while there is interest for Cypriot entrepreneurs to invest in wind parks in Rumania.

    Paschalides also added that investments of Cypriot interest in Rumania, in various sectors, amount today to around 1,5 billion euros.

    The Rumanian Minister said on his part that he expects Paschalides to visit his country in November, so that negotiations may continue within the framework of the existing Joint Parliamentary Committee.


    Cyprus is willing to support efforts made by the Palestinian Authority to establish the necessary infrastructure in the health sector, Health Minister Christos Patsalides said on Tuesday after a meeting he had with his Palestinian counterpart Fathi Abou Mogli, who is paying an official visit to Cyprus. The two Ministers also presided over talks attended by officials from their Ministries.

    Patsalides said that one of the priorities during Cyprus EU Presidency in 2012 will be the promotion of cooperation at regional level and the establishment of cooperation mechanisms in the health sector.

    He noted that during their talks they discussed among others the issue of a possible allocation of scholarships to Palestinian students to study at various Cypriot educational institutions as the Technical University of Cyprus.

    They also decided, as he said, to promote cooperation between medical experts in Cyprus and the Palestine, as the Palestinian people needs help by volunteers.

    Patsalides expressed Cyprus readiness to offer help on humanitarian issues and noted that Cyprus aims at maintaining friendship with its neighbouring countries.

    As he said, Cyprus accession to the EU has given the country the opportunity to function as a bridge of communication between Europe and the Middle East and Cyprus wants and must play this role in the region.

    The Palestinian Ministers expressed in his statements certainty that his visit to Cyprus will set the basis for a new cooperation between the two countries.

    Cyprus can function as a communication bridge between the Palestine Authority and the EU, helping in this way the Palestinian people to find its way towards peace, he added.

    Mogli said their meeting was particularly fruitful and expressed certainty that relations between the two Ministries will be further enhanced.
