Held at the Presidential Palace on 8 February, the event brought together hundreds of foreign investors who have been active in Cyprus in recent years and who, in the presence of the President of the Republic Nikos Christodoulides, were informed about the recent initiatives taken by the Government to improve our country’s business and investment environment.

Within this context, the progress of the Investment and Talent Attraction Strategy implemented since 2022 was presented, along with how it has been reinforced with new actions approved by the Council of Ministers on 7 February, 2024.

In his opening statement, the President of the Republic pointed out that the amendment of the Strategy was mainly based on the needs of the investment community as they were recorded during the round table discussion held last summer.
