  • [01] CCCI President pleased with government policies

    President of the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) Phidias Pilides expressed his satisfaction over the implementation by the Government of a good mixture of policies and measures, necessary for strengthening production, managing the public sector and ensuring the eventual reversal of the economic downturn.

    Speaking at the Economist Ninth Cyprus Summit, titled "Cyprus on the Mend?", Pilides referred to what Cyprus has done right and what remains to be addressed.

    On what has been done right, Pilides emphasized that the business community of Cyprus has been active in taking the measures necessary to strengthen the competitiveness of the Cypriot economy.

    [02] Cyprus to improve compliance with tax transparency, says government

    The government has pledged to take all necessary additional steps to implement the required changes and ensure improved compliance with regard to tax transparency and the exchange of information for tax purposes.

    The pledge is outlined in a Finance Ministry press release, following the country's assessment at the Global Forum on Tax Transparency and Exchange of Information for tax purposes, which assigned Cyprus with an overall rating of "non-compliant" during his meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia, on November 21-22.

    According to the Ministry press release issued here today, during its meeting, the Global Forum, which is the leading international body for ensuring the implementation of the internationally agreed standard on transparency and exchange of information in the tax area, released compliance ratings for 50 jurisdictions which had both phases of their assessments completed; a) legal and regulatory framework and b) practical implementation of the legal framework.

    [03] Debate on the future of Europe comes to Cyprus

    The debate on the future of Europe is coming to Cyprus on Thursday 28 November.

    According to the European Commission, Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, will hold an open Citizens` Dialogue at the Carob Mill in the southern coastal town of Limassol with local councilors, NGO representatives, students and members of the public.

    "The Citizens` Dialogue is an excellent way for European decision-makers to hear the views of the public first hand. I am keen for as many people as possible to take part in our event in Cyprus: from school pupils and students, to mums and dads, to office and shop workers, business people, civil society and older people. Everyone is welcome. This is your chance to make your voice heard", she said

    [04] Cyprus legislation to be amended to combat violence against women

    Cyprus law and policies conform with the provisions of the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence,

    Justice and Public Order Minister Ionas Nicolaou has assured. However, he said, significant obligations are not covered by current legislation and are being evaluated by the relevant ministries and the Law Office of the Republic. Work on the necessary changes should be completed in the days ahead and a report on the matter will be tabled at a ministerial committee.

    The Minister said that undoubtedly violence against women is one of the most serious issues facing women and the greatest obstacle in complete equality.
