  • [01] PATSALIDES - TRIO - EU - HEALTH

    Cyprus proposal to make regional health co-operation an EU trio presidency a priority has been accepted by both Poland and Denmark, said here Friday Minister of Health Christos Patsalides, after a meeting he had with Polish and Danish officials, who are here for a presidency preparatory meeting.

    I am particularly happy that our positions and proposals have been accepted and will be part of the priorities, he said, adding that this will mean that they will also be discussed on an EU level and we hope decisions will also be made.

    Explaining the issue further, Patsalides said it relates to co-operation and the creation of networks with neighbouring countries in case of a pandemic or other infectious diseases.

    Cyprus, he said, can act as a bridge between the countries of the region and Europe, noting that at meetings he has had with his counterparts in the region it was evident that they would welcome an initiative which will bring them closer to Europe as regards health issues.

    [02] MINISTER - RUSSIA - TOURISM FAIR

    A Cyprus delegation headed by the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism Antonis Paschalidis has travelled to St. Petersburg, Russia, to participate at the International Tourism Fair and cultural events organized by the authorities of St. Petersburg, Limassol Municipality and Cyprus Tourism Organization (CTO).

    The Minister gave on Thursday a joint press conference on the events planned and the many advantages the Cyprus tourist product can offer to Russian tourists.

    On Friday the Minister of Commerce held a number of meetings with key tour operators in the region, and the Deputy Governor of St. Petersburg Alexander Prohorenko.
