About Cyprus

Cyprus is situated in the north-eastern corner of the Mediterranean, at the meeting point of Europe, Asia and Africa. The primary ancient Greek heritage of the island is enriched by the Egyptians and Romans, along with Crusaders, Byzantines, Franks and Ottomans, who have all left an indelible legacy for the modern visitor to see and admire.

Cyprus is endowed with golden beaches, virgin green forests and other natural wonders. It is one of the safest countries in the world, while the Cypriot people are famous for the warm welcome they extend to visitors. Much like Singapore and Hong Kong, Cyprus is an important financial and business centre, with over 70% of the economy focused on financial and professional services, banking, investment management, shipping, tourism and real estate. Cyprus hosts the financial infrastructure for thousands of multinationals due to its stable and modern legal and tax environment, highly educated workforce, and excellent quality of life. It also boasts one of the most developed tourism infrastructures per-capita in the world, while operating as a global maritime hub.
