  • [01] French-Cypriot School to hold "Open Doors" event

    In order to give new students and their families the chance to find out more about it, the French-Cypriot School of Nicosia (EFCN) is holding on the 8th of February its second annual "Open Doors" event.

    The French-Cypriot School of Nicosia, inaugurated in September 2012, is part of the worldwide network of The Agency for French Teaching Abroad, with around 480 schools and more than 300 thousand registered students worldwide. According to the President of the school JC Boloux and the Manager Olivier Sadok, today the EFCN has 182 students, 118 in the primary school and 64 in the gymnasium and lyceum and the number is expected to rise next year.

    More than 30% of the students are in the Greek language stream. Half of the school's students are Cypriots, while the rest of them are mainly French, Lebanese, Belgian and Chinese, consequently the students are exposed to a multicultural and diverse school environment.

    [02] Cross-border medical care benefits analyzed in Nicosia conference

    Cross-border medical care presents many opportunities and challenges to Cyprus citizens and it can increase the number of patients who seek medical care in the private sector, the speakers of a conference organized in Nicosia have pointed out.

    The conference took place Monday and it was co organized by the Ministry of Health and the Office of the European Parliament in Cyprus. Chairman of the Cyprus Association of Private Hospitals Marios Mandas underlined in his speech that the implementation of the European directive for cross-border care can contribute to the promotion of medical tourism as an increased number of patients will have access to private hospitals in Cyprus.

    MEP Eleni Theocharous pointed out that the authorities should ensure that all Cypriot citizens will have access to private hospitals in the EU and that the expenses will be covered, noting that there is a general concern based on the fact that not all Cypriots have general health insurance. Cyprus Tourism Organization Manager Marios Channides in his speech said that medical tourism can contribute to the restart of the economy, adding that we should encourage foreign investments towards this end.
