Tourism Talk: Cyprus Calls for Collaboration

Alright, folks, gather round for the latest scoop in the world of tourism, where Cyprus is making waves with its call for international cooperation to tackle the challenges facing the sector.

Deputy Minister of Tourism, Kostas Koumis, recently stepped up to the mic at the 70th Session of the Europe Commission of the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) in Tirana, and boy, did he have some thoughts to share! Koumis highlighted the shared struggles of European tourist hotspots, from energy crises to labor shortages, and stressed the need for a united front to navigate these choppy waters.

“As a country and tourist destination with a rich history and reliable partners, we’re committed to delivering top-notch services that keep tourists coming back for more,” Koumis declared, his enthusiasm practically leaping off the stage.

But wait, there’s more! Cyprus isn’t content to rest on its laurels; oh no, they’re doubling down on their efforts to enhance tourism offerings, especially in rural areas. And guess what? They’re not going it alone! Nope, they’re reaching out to their European pals to join forces and overcome these hurdles together. Talk about squad goals!

Meanwhile, over in Poland, things are heating up for the Famagusta district. The Famagusta Tourism Board (Etap) and local hoteliers have been making waves with their roadshow, drumming up interest in organized trips from the land of pierogi and vodka. From Warsaw to Krakow, they’ve been charming Polish tour operators with promises of sun, sea, and a sprinkle of Cypriot hospitality.

Etap Famagusta’s Giorgos Kavkalias couldn’t contain his excitement, declaring Poland as the next big thing for Cypriot tourism. With direct flights from Larnaca to various Polish cities, the possibilities are endless. Plus, with the promise of year-round attractions, including beach tourism and special experiences, it’s a match made in travel heaven.

So, whether you’re dreaming of sipping cocktails on a Famagusta beach or exploring Cyprus’ rustic charm, one thing’s for sure: the future of tourism is looking brighter than ever!
