"Steam ahead, make new ideas happen!"

The Cyprus Germany Business Association


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.

You may also read more details about the Association's new VISION, MISSION, VALUES and STARTEGICAL OBJECTIVES here.

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.

Germany is the second largest export market and the third largest import market of Cyprus. However, Germany does not play a quite important role in public perception.

With this event, the Cyprus Germany Business Association is contributing to a better perception of Germany's role and importance in the economy of Cyprus.

Everybody is welcome to this excellent opportunity for networking and getting acquainted!

The Cyprus Germany Business Association is organizing a promotional Cyprus Business Event in Hanover, Germany, on 13 June 2017.

Invitation in English and in German language with participation form for participants from Cyprus and from Germany at the bottom of this page.

The official title of the event is:

Forum, Workshops and Networking Meeting
Business Opportunities in and via Cyprus
ICT/R&D | Shipping | Regional Hub Cyprus

The Event / The Workshops

The event will commence with of a relatively short introduction about Cyprus as a place to do business. The main part of the event will consist of three parallel, themed and interactive workshops, which will last for almost two hours each. The themes of the interactive workshops will be

  1. “Opportunities for ICT and Research and Development in Cyprus”,
  2. “Cyprus – one of the most important locations of European Shipping Business”, and
  3. “Cyprus as a safe EU location for business activities in the Middle East and North Africa”.

Each workshop will be presided by one or two members of CGBA, being expert in each workshop’s subject. Attendance of more CGBA members will be highly appreciated!

Participation of Minister for Transport, Communication and Works Confirmed

Our Minister for Transport, Communication and Works, Mr Marios Demetriades, has confirmed his attendance! The Minister will deliver a keynote speech and will attend all three workshops, promoting the business location Cyprus and answering questions of the workshop participants.

We are inviting to the event German business people of each industry, thus providing the possibility to speak directly to the respective target clientele.

Rather than the classical format of presenters on the one front and listeners (German participants) on the other front, participants from both Germany and Cyprus, including our Minister for Transport, Communication and Works, will come together in the workshop of their interest and ask and reply and discuss interactively.

The following three workshops will be held:

  • "Opportunities for ICT and Reserch and Development in Cyprus"
  • "Cyprus - One of the Most Important European Jurisdictions for Shipping"
  • " Cyprus as safe EU Regional Centre for Economic Activities in the Middle East and North Africa"

The event “Business Opportunities in and via Cyprus” will be followed by a networking cocktail reception.
