Cypriot Minister for Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism to visit Edinburgh for Cyprus-UK Business Forum

Posted: 18th October 2016

On the 10 November, George Lakkotrypis, Minister of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism for the Republic of Cyprus will visit Edinburgh to speak at the Cyprus-UK Business Forum.

 Taking place at The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh. This free event is the first of its kind in Scotland and is a unique opportunity to hear the Minister talk about the country’s economy and key growth drivers, all whilst exploring opportunities for investment and international trade in Cyprus through networking with Cypriot delegates and panel discussions from CIPA, CIFA and PwC Cyprus.

The current Cyprus government has made staunch efforts to create and develop an increasingly attractive business and investment framework in Cyprus. With new incentives to attract investment and the promise of good governance, many industry experts and multinational companies have recognised this as a ripe time to focus on the Cypriot market in terms of both international trade and investment opportunities. The added advantages of its transparent and favourable tax and regulatory framework, well-educated population and strong growth prospects bode well for this strategically located European market.

This event is free to attend and available to both members and non-members of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.
