The Closure of Eurocypria (2011)

Without scientific approach we cannot solve the Famagusta Tourist Problems (2009)
During a tourist meeting that was done by a political party DISY on April 11th at Paralimni Municipality with presence of Minister of Tourism, Mr. Paschalides Antonis, I have inferred that the Municipalities of Famagusta District Area, the association of hoteliers, the people who involve in tourism, they do not approach the tourist problems with scientific research that could enhance the tourist product.

First and most important is the fact that the tourist planning regarding the area is far from being the proper one. All works necessary for the development of the area end up at Paralimni!
