Successful bidder for Paphos marina by end 2024

The tender process for the Paphos marina is expected to be completed at the end of 2024, at which time the successful bidder will be known.

Giorgos Mais, the president of the Paphos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (EVE Paphos), clarified that the procedures regarding the submission of bids for the consultancy services for the project have been completed.

Mais said that if no objections were made by the end of April 2024, the appraisal and awarding of the bid is expected to proceed, after which the tender documents will be prepared.

By the end of 2024, the tendering process should be concluded, and the successful investor will be known.

Despite long delays and setbacks, Mais emphasized that the Paphos marina is of utmost importance to the area.

It is expected to enhance the tourism product, bolster nautical tourism, and support the other marinas in Cyprus.

Mais revealed that he had recently communicated with the President, who assured him that the procedures would be expedited and that the Deputy Ministry of Tourism and the government in general will do whatever is necessary to move the project forward as soon as possible, since as Nikos Christodoulides pointed out, it’s part the state’s strategy for tourism.

Three financial organisations have submitted bids for consultancy services for the Paphos marina project in the Potima bay area of Kissonerga.

Once the consultancy organisation has been selected, they will be responsible for preparing the tender documents, to find a strategic investor for the project.
