Senior decision makers urged to get along to find out about overseas trade opportunities in Cyprus
Business leaders looking to trade overseas are being encouraged to get along to Scotland’s first ever Cyprus-UK Business Forum, to be held in Edinburgh next Thursday (10 November).
They are invited to register for the free event to hear from George Lakkotrypis, Minister of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism for the Republic of Cyprus, talk about the Cyprus economy and opportunities for investment and international trade there.
The event, which is designed for senior decision makers, will also include a panel discussion with top representatives from the Cyprus Investment Promotion Agency (CIPA) and Cyprus Investment Funds Association (CIFA).
It will provide an opportunity to meet and network with Cypriot delegates to explore opportunities for future investment and learn about the advantages Cyprus has to offer as a location for business, partnerships, and a base for regional headquarters.
According to organisers, the current Cyprus government has made staunch efforts to create and develop an increasingly attractive business and investment framework in the country.
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 for both international trade and investment opportunities.
Among its advantages are Cyprus’s transparent and favourable tax and regulatory framework, well-educated population and strong growth prospects.
The event, which is being supported by Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Invest Cyprus, and the Cyprus-UK Business Association, will take place between 9am and 12pm on Thursday, 10 November 2016 at The Balmoral hotel in Edinburgh.
