COMMERCE Minister Antonis Paschalides announced that he is ready to sign a deal for the construction of a marina in Ayia Napa.
However, Mr Paschalides spoke of two preconditions which will have to be fulfilled by the businessmen involved before a deal is signed.
The deal has been on the back-burner for the past four months and a deal for the construction of a state of the art marina in Paphos is also in limbo. Paschalides urged Paphos businessmen involved to solve the legal issues surrounding the project so that a deal can be found.
He also said that the Island expects a surge in tourist arrivals and urged the local councils and communities to take extra care with issues of tidiness and cleanliness as well as infrastructure to be addressed ahead of the arrival of tourists.
Paschalides also warned hoteliers against firing Cypriot workers as they represent a part of Cyprus’ renowned hospitality.
