Transformation of the CGBA into an independent legal body
The current Cyprus Germany Business Association under the auspices of the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KEVE) is the first bilateral business association under the umbrella of KEVE that will shortly be transformed into an independent legal body on its own, with the consent and the participation of KEVE. The new CGBA will be registered as a Company Limited on Guarantee and as a Non-Profit Organisation.
The Founders’ meeting will take place on Wednesday, 20 November 2019 from 12:30 to 13:00, at the KEVE Building, 2nd Floor.
The Founding Members need to sign the Memorandum and Articles of the new Cyprus Germany Business Association Ltd.
Background and Rationale of the Transformation of CGBA
Strong organic ties with KEVE
KEVE fully supports this new development. KEVE will be a Founding Member of the new “Cyprus Germany Business Association Ltd” and will always have one representative on the Board of Directors.
The transformation of the current CGBA into a legal entity registered on its own goes in line with the Government’s “Economic Diplomacy Initiative” and the Government’s intention to further Cyprus’ ties with Germany, in light of the upcoming BREXIT. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs already expressed its desire to closely cooperate with the new CGBA.
Why will the NEW CGBA be stronger?
The progressive step of transforming the CGBA into the NEW CGBA Ltd will enable our Association;
- to act on its own with its own legal identity,
- to be self-managed,
- to manage its own financials and budget,
- top open its own bank account,
- to accept and manage sponsorships,
- to enter cooperation agreements with local and foreign organisations and associations,
- to organise useful events in Cyprus and abroad in cooperation with governmental bodies and appropriate organisations and associations,
- and more.
Please express your interest to become a founding member not later than by 12 November 2019, by sending an email through our Contact Page.

Networking Reception with drinks and fingerfood
The Cyprus Germany Business Association invited the public to a Networking Reception in the "Cave" of Akropolis Park in Nicosia.
The feature of the reception was the introduction of the new VISION, MISSION, VALUES and STARTEGICAL OBJECTIVES of the Association.
The motto of the Networking Reception was "Cyprus meets Germany". More than 10 Cyprus companies that are strongly connected with Germany introduced their work, products and services to the public.
The only unfortune happening of the evening was very heavy rain starting just at 17:30, half an hour before the start of the event. If we may use the English saying, "it rained cats and dogs".
Due to the weather, the start was postponed until about 19:00, as the rain stopped at about 18:45. Despite the unfortunate weather conditions, the Cyprus Germany Business Association still welcomed more than 80 attendees.
The President of CGBA, Stefan Nolte, introduced the new VISION, MISSION, VALUES and STARTEGICAL OBJECTIVES of the Association. By clicking the above image you may view and download a pdf copy of the presentation.

On 28 November 2017, the Cyprus Germany Business Association will welcome the public to a Networking Reception at the Londa Hotel in Limassol. Details will be announced very soon.
