The forum aims to raise awareness of Cyprus as an investment and business destination among the US investment, financial and business communities.
It will showcase the increasing importance of Cyprus as a regional maritime, logistics, energy and operational hub and highlight investment and business opportunities in these areas as well as in financial services, IT and tourism.
“Cyprus can be of significant value to companies which are using the United Kingdom as a gateway to the European Union and will thus be affected by BREXIT”, the press release adds.

It offers political stability, an efficient legal system, a competitive tax regime and a restructured and growth oriented economy. The banking system has been recapitalized and is governed by practices aligned with the EU legislation`.
