A wide range of issues of interest to the Limassol business community and pertinent to the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works, were discussed in a recent Board meeting of the Limassol Chamber of Commerce & Industry attended by the Minister Yiannis Karousos.
Welcoming Mr. Karousos, Chamber President Andreas Tsouloftas, brought before him a number of issues related to the development and other needs of Limassol, city and district. Issues related to the port of Limassol and the port industry of the country in general were also raised, with emphasis on problems faced by traders-members of the Chamber due to significantly increased charges.
The Minister, addressing the issues raised before him, referred to several road projects that are under implementation or planning in the city and district of Limassol. Regarding the port charges, he noted that a study is being prepared by a specialized firm, while opinions are expected from the State Legal Service. He also referred to the upgrading of public transport, on which the implementation of the Limassol Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan depends. In relation to the upgrade of the Limassol Archaeological Museum, Mr. Karousos was clear that what is needed is not any upgrade of the existing one, but the creation of a new, modern museum.
