Travel and Tourism - Cyprus - May 2018

“The country’s maritime sector continues to be an important contributor to growth, as Cyprus is considered one of the most important international hubs for ship owning and management services, and Cyprus’ international ship register ranks third in the EU and is the tenth largest in the world. Tourism is also expected to continue to be a growth factor and we are taking measures to diversify our tourist product and develop niche markets such as agro, medical and sport tourism. The decision to establish casino resorts is also expected to create new investment opportunities.”
