Welcome Address By
H.E. Ms. Ana María Salomón Pérez,
Ambassador of the Kingdom of Spain to the Republic of Cyprus

Dear Visitor,

Since its creation in 2002, the members of the Cyprus-Spain Business Association have been working for further exchanges and create new trade links between our countries. The Embassy of Spain in Nicosia, which opened its doors at the same time, has supported the activities of this association at every step as it considers its work essential for trade enhancements.

We now head into a new period whose aim will be the consolidation of bilateral agreements and the exploitation of opportunities in the sectors that are more attractive for each other. It is, therefore, been identified the need to build new channels and bridges between us.

The international economic picture presents a scenario full of challenges that are to lead us to an innovative era which will be doubly beneficial for the strengthening and growth of our businesses when cooperating and working together.

In this context, the Cyprus-Spain Business Association is now an important gear in the machinery that pushes our countries closer not only as economic players but also as European Union Members, and as cultural, political and social communities.

Therefore, I am sure that the Cyprus-Spain Business Association members and board will achieve every success in their mission through a perseverant and positive spirit during this coming period.

Let me finally express my sincere wish for this Web page to serve you as a useful tool to find important information and to enhance the already excellent existing relations with your Mediterranean faraway neighbour, and to, of course, create new ones also by sharing knowledge and "savoir faire".

Ana María Salomón Pérez
Ambassador of the Kingdom of Spain

Welcome Address By
Mr. Marios A. Klitou,
President of Cyprus - Spain Business Association

Dear Visitors,

On behalf of the Cyprus-Spain Business Association I wish to welcome you to our website.

First of all I would like to express my sincere thanks to Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry for nominating me and the Members of our Cyprus – Spain Business Association for electing me as President of our Association.

Together with all our Board Members, we will work hard to achieve the goals and objectives of our Association to the benefit of all our members and businessmen from Cyprus and Spain turning to our Association for guidance and assistance.

The Cyprus-Spain Business Association was established in 2002 under the auspices of the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry with the aim to promote, expand and encourage economic and trade relations between the Republic of Cyprus and Spain.

Our Association has a more important role to play these days due to the current economic crisis. The problems faced by our business societies both in Cyprus and Spain are more difficult than ever. But we should not stand aside. We should not focus on the consequences. We need to concentrate on the emerging opportunities and challenges ahead.

We will try to bring closer the business societies of our countries, resolve existing problems and open up new perspectives. This, we believe, will be a step towards the right direction.

I would like to express my gratitude to the previous President, Mr George Michaelides and members of the Board for their valuable contribution towards the success of our Association.

Thank you

Marios A. Klitou
