  • [01] Interior Minister: A just settlement in Cyprus a high priority

    Minister of the Interior Socratis Hasikos has said that a just settlement of the Cyprus problem and the restoration of the inalienable rights of the refugees is an issue of high priority for the government.

    The Minister noted that it is "inconceivable, an affront and outrageous for all of us to see Turkey`s occupation continue for 39 years and our country divided and the people remain away from their ancestral homes."

    [02] Tourism down in 2013, prospects for 2014 better, says CTO

    The economic crisis in Cyprus, which reached its height in March, has affected tourism in a negative way in 2013, Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) President Alecos Oroundiotis has said, noting however that the action taken so far indicates that prospects for the next three years are better.

    Addressing a press conference on the results of CTO's contacts in several key tourist markets, Oroundiotis said that in the first six months of the year tourist arrivals were down by 7%, by the end of July they were down by 8.5% while by the end of August they fell by 5.3%.

    The month of August recorded a fall of the order of 3%. CTO expects that tourism will be down by 4% for the entire year, a result which according to Oroundiotis is manageable. From traditionally big tourist markets, there was a downward trend of tourists arriving from Britain and Germany, he said, adding however that tourists arriving from Russia, the Ukraine and Israel were up by 25%, 85% and 22% respectively.
