The 15th Cyprus Summit – “Cyprus Unimpeded? Europe in Need of A New Narrative” – takes place in Nicosia on Mon 4th and Tue 5th November 2019.
The 2-day event, organised by the British weekly news group, the Economist, is always an important annual date, which this year includes a symposium on whether Cyprus will manage to “diversify its economy and become a significant business hub”.
The Summit takes place at the Hilton, however, many of the best hotels in Nicosia will also be putting the final touches in place to ensure the highest level of personalised boutique hotel experience meets and greets key delegates and their entourage when they arrive.
Wide range of “international and regional issues”
Nearly 40 distinguished guest speakers from the worlds of “government, banking and business” as well as CEOs and leading executives from European, US and neighbouring state institutions will be discussing a wide range of “international and regional issues.”
The Summit will be officially opened by Cyprus President, Nicos Anastasiades, addressing the topic, “Cyprus: Creating Solid Foundations For Regional Co-operation”. This will be followed by a talk on Brexit and the EU, given by Jo Johnson, Britain’s former Director of Policy at No.10 Downing Street and brother of current Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.
Further debates scheduled for Day One will include contributions from Nikos Christodoulides, Cyprus Minister of Foreign Affairs, Savvas Angelides, Cyprus Minster of Defence and Judith G. Garber, US Ambassador to Rep. of Cyprus. An Opening Gala Dinner will be addressed by Dr Wess Mitchell, former US assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs.
Impressive “who’s who” of Cypriot speakers
Day Two will primarily focus on tackling key business and trade subjects such as, the “most significant challenges for the global economy and growth”, an update on the banking sector, “global trends in hydrocarbon exploitation” and examining the “strategy for investments in Cyprus and the region”.
An impressive “ministerial who’s who” of Cypriot speakers include, Harris Georgiades Minister of Finance, Georgios Lakkotrypis, Minister of Energy, Commerce and Industry, Constantinos Herodotou Governor, Central Bank of Cyprus and Christodoulos E. Angastiniotis, President, Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The Summit, organised with the collaboration of the European Commission, comes at a pivotal moment in the ongoing economic and financial progress of Cyprus within the European environment. The Cyprus economy grew 3.2 per cent year-on-year in the second quarter of 2019, according the Statistical Service of Cyprus. GDP also expanded 0.8 per cent – higher than the predicted 0.7 per cent – up from a 0.6 per cent in the first quarter.
