    Leading representatives of the UK Cypriot community have met with the Financial Secretary to the Treasury Greg Clark, in the presence of British MPs, to discuss measures that the UK government could take to support British Cypriots in their attempts to increase inward investment in Cyprus.

    Matters explored during the discussion included the provision of technical assistance to Cyprus, possible collaboration relating to the proposed establishment of a Cyprus Investment Fund and potential co-operation in facilitating UK investment and UK-Cypriot joint ventures in key sectors of the island's economy including tourism, services, culture and education and energy.

    Fotiou was speaking during the Foreign Affairs Council (Defence) that was held in Luxembourg as well as a meeting of the European Defence Agency Steering Board which was held on the sidelines of the Council.
