  • [01] FIABCI WORLD CONGRESS - CYPRUS

    Cyprus hosts the 62nd International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) World Congress.

    The five-day conference, taking place in the western coastal town of Paphos, aims to emphasize how culture and civilization influence real estate globally.

    Cypriot Minister of the Interior Neoclis Sylikiotis, who addressed the meeting on behalf of the President of Republic Demetris Christofias, said in statements that the Congress is unprecedented for Cyprus as the island plays a very important role in real estate transactions.

    The Minister outlined the initiatives taken in recent years by his Ministry and the government to rectify problems in issues concerning development, title deeds and new town planning settings which will give new impetus to Cyprus` real estate sector, creating healthy and secure conditions for future customers of this sector, both local and foreign.

    Sylikiotis noted that the town planning zones review is in progress and this will create a new environment regarding development and real estate market throughout Cyprus.

    These developments will restore Cyprus` good name internationally and will give a new boost to development and the real estate market, he added.

    In his address, Sylikiotis recalled that the Parliament has approved four government bills which constitute an important reform of the Cypriot legal framework governing licensing of development projects and the issue of title deeds.

    He said that the mechanisms incorporated in the bill have allowed the issue of approximately 25.000 title deeds as of June 2009, while town planning authorities have managed to issue town planning licenses for normal scale developments within three months.

    [02] CYPRUS - EU AGRICULTURE AND FISHERIES COUNCIL

    The EU proposal, which gives the mandate to the Presidency of the Council of the EU to conduct consultations on behalf of the EU for the adoption of a legally binding agreement on forests in Europe was at the focus of a meeting of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council held on Tuesday. Cyprus was represented by Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment Minister Demetris Eliades.

    In his intervention, Eliades said Cyprus was in favour of negotiating and adopting a legally binding agreement on forests in Europe, noting that it will decisively contribute to the right management, protection and development of European forests.

    He also stressed the need for political will to launch negotiations and enhance the EU prestige, adding that consensus will allow the EU to maintain its leading role in the framework of the ongoing dialogue for the future International Arrangement on Forests in our planet.

    [03] CYPRUS - WEATHER - RAIN - DUST

    Rain and thunderstorms are forecast to continue in the interior and the highlands of Cyprus in the next few days but the dust is expected to clear by Thursday afternoon.

    As meteorological officer Panayiotis Michael told CNA on Wednesday the dust present in the atmosphere is expected to clear by tomorrow afternoon whereas the weather is due to take a turn for the better by the weekend with temperatures rising and exceeding 30 degrees Celsius.

    The phenomenon of dust in the atmosphere in Cyprus is not a rare one for this time of the year Michael said, adding that the dust present in the atmosphere in the past few days has originated from Jordan and Saudi Arabia, due to eastern and northeastern winds.
