Discussions on a national strategy for tourism will commence in July, with an ambitious plan to have Cyprus an all year tourist destination, attracting over six million visitors annually by 2030, President Nicos Anastasiades said on Monday.
In his speech, read out at the Cyprus hotel association (Pasyxe) annual general meeting by Energy Minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis, Anastasiades outlined his vision saying that in the next 13 years, Cyprus should be attracting tourists throughout the year and of the six million or more that would visit, 4.8 million of them would be quality tourists.
The national strategy would create a concrete plan, budget and deadlines on how this goal would be achieved, which if successful, would boost businesses, the environment and the economy, he said.
Investments across the island such as the Ayia Napa and Paralimni marinas, the Larnaca port and marina developments as well as the casino in Limassol all help improve the quality of tourism Cyprus has to offer, Anastasiades added.
Cyprus had a record year in 2016 with 3.2 million visitors. In May this year alone, there were 419,000 arrivals, Cyprus Tourism Organisation Chairman Angelos Loizou said, breaking yet another record. The arrivals for the past month are 150,000 more than the average arrivals from the same month in the past 15 years, he added, where only a few years ago, Cyprus was struggling to get 70,000 visits in May.
