Address of the President of the Republic at the seminar “The Future of Cyprus for Russian Business”, in Nicosia

It gives me, indeed, a great pleasure to address today this notable audience. Firstly, let me congratulate the Cyprus – Russian Business Association, the law firm Chryssafinis and Polyviou LLC and the international law firm Withers of Zurich, for their excellent initiative in organising this important seminar. I would also like to thank all of you for your presence here today. I am certain that this key seminar in Nicosia will contribute greatly to strengthening further the close business ties between Cyprus and the Russian Federation, amid the financial challenges we face today. I take this opportunity tο emphasize that my Government has invested substantial time and effort in consolidating and reforming our economy, since the Memorandum of Understanding with the Troika has been signed. There is no doubt that Cyprus is making steady progress in fulfilling the necessary requirements of its economic adjustment programme. The fact that the international investment activity in the country is maintained at high levels, proves the foreign entrepreneur’s trust towards investing in Cyprus. To this end, I do believe that the prospects for the island look extremely promising. Yet, we are aware of the difficulties, viewing them as a challenge for the future that is to be overcome by constantly being alert and concentrating on implementing our plan for further economic improvement. - 18.9.2014
