  • [01] Minister: ┼fforts focus on a growing and prosperous Cyprus shipping

    Government efforts focus on a continuously growing and prosperous Cyprus shipping and a maritime industry unparalleled by others, Communications and Works Minister Tasos Mitsopoulos said on Thursday, noting that the government upholds shipping as one of its "best kept secrets", a secret that supports the local economy quietly, efficiently, effectively and sustainably.

    In his address at the signing ceremony of a contract for the building eco-friendly bulk carrier vessels by FrontMarine and Lemissoler Navigation, he said that " when these vessels are put in service, hopefully under the Cyprus flag, they will contribute to the efforts of our Government, and many others around the world, for the development and expansion of a sustainable maritime transport system."

    Such a system, he noted, will provide efficient and effective sea transport, contribute to the reduction of harmful substances in the environment, reduce emissions of various oxides that have proven to shorten the life of people living around busy ports and last but not least, help alleviate the major environmental problem faced by the planet today, that of climate change and global warming.

    [02] Cyprus signs agreement with UK on public sector reform

    Cyprus signed on Thursday a bilateral agreement with the United Kingdom to conduct a study on the modernization and reform of the public sector.

    The need to modernize and reform the public sector, to be able to successfully and effectively address the challenges that arise from today's reality in the interest of the Cypriot citizen, constitutes a declared government priority as well as an obligation stemming from the Memorandum of Understanding signed with the Troika, says a press release issued here today by the Ministry of Finance.

    The preparation of studies by independent experts is a necessity for the implementation of the public sector restructuring, it adds.
