Plans for direct flights between Cyprus and China

Paphos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) is promoting the creation of a direct flight route between Paphos and China. The president of PCCI Giorgos Leptos stated that along with the president of Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) are already in contact with a major Chinese airline and tourist agents in China regarding this matter.
Due to the very good political and trade relations between the two countries there is prospect for further growth in the financial sector. Mr Leptos noted that the balance of trade between Cyprus and China is very negative since Cyprus imports a lot of commodities and products from China but in his opinion this can change. He also stated that Paphos apart from its highly developed tourist industry also offers an attractive environment for investment, and can become a commercial base offering access to Chinese companies to European Union.
