Greetings at the opening ceremony
“With great honor and joy I complete the opening of the marina of Ayia Napa. An emblematic project, which we envisioned since 1993 and have now implemented, and which will not change only the tourist landscape of Cyprus, but also of the Eastern Mediterranean.
To this end, I feel the need to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Naguib Sawiris, who, despite all the obstacles he may have faced, showed real faith in our country, proceeding with this investment, worth over 300 million an investment, in cooperation with a recognized Cypriot company, the Caramondanis Group, in which I also express my sincere thanks.
As one can appreciate being here, the marina Ayia Napa provides world-class services for sailing boats, luxury homes and multi-purpose entertainment venues.

Both I and the Government are really proud, as this project proves that we are taking full advantage of our comparative advantages, such as our location at the crossroads of three continents, along with a well-known culture of warmth and hospitality and a recognized legal system. widely as efficient and truly business friendly.
Advantages that allow us to create high value projects, such as the one we are launching today, that create hundreds of new jobs and attract quality tourism, with consequent positive effects on the inflow of direct and indirect revenue.

A strategy that includes, inter alia, the development of maritime and maritime tourism, through the development of marinas along our coastline and the licensing of mooring areas for simple and state-of-the-art vessels.
In this context, in addition to the marina and the port of Limassol, we have created related and interconnected projects, such as the marinas and the ports of Paralimni and Larnaca.
What I say is not enough to emphasize the obvious benefits and opportunities that the Ayia Napa marina or the positive effects of constructive and transparent cooperation between the central government, local authorities and the private sector.
