  • [01] Agriculture Minister: We can build the foundation for prosperity

    Climate change exerts pressure on natural resources and adaptation measures are essential, Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment Nicos Kouyialis said on Wednesday, noting that "with targeted investments, we can build today the foundation for tomorrow`s prosperity."

    Addressing the inauguration ceremony of the Limassol Desalination Plant, Kouyialis said this was the fifth desalination plant in Cyprus, "the completion of which eliminates the dependency on the weather conditions and climate change, thus ensuring adequate quantities of potable water for the urban, suburban and tourist areas."

    Kouyialis pointed out that "water resources in Cyprus are limited and are being supplied and enriched almost exclusively by rainwater" and that "the climate changes and the frequent and long-term periods of drought worsen the water scarcity problem."

    [02] CIPA urges Cypriot diplomats to promote investment opportunities

    Cypriot ambassadors stationed overseas have expressed their readiness to contribute to efforts to revert the negative climate created after the recent developments regarding the island's economy.

    The pledge was made during a meeting of the ambassadors with the leadership of the Cyprus Investment Promotion Agency (CIPA), a statement said. CIPA chairman Christodoulos Angastiniotis said that the meeting took place in the framework of efforts to restore Cyprus' image as a credible investment destination, urging the ambassadors to inform foreign business people and investors on the advantages that Cyprus continues to have.

    He said foreign investments will constitute a catalyst for the economy's development, the business environment, employment and the country's welfare. Greater emphasis, he added, is needed to attract foreign investments to help re-launch the economy.

    [03] Athens to host Canada-Greece/Cyprus University Partnership Forum in September

    Canada`s High Commissioner to the Republic of Cyprus Robert Peck announced on Thursday that the first Canada-Greece/Cyprus University Partnership Forum will take place in Athens on September 16.

    The Forum`s key objective is to promote new institution-to-institution partnerships between universities in both Greece/Cyprus and in Canada, which could include faculty exchange/enrichment programs, lectures, semester abroad programs, Canadian and Hellenic studies, and collaboration in research and development.

    High Commissioner Peck noted that there are already a number of existing agreements between Canadian and Greek universities, however, there has been renewed interest going forward in deepening broader bilateral academic co-operation. According to a press release, the Forum will be opened by Greek Minister of Education and Religious Affairs Constantinos Arvanitopoulos.
