Limassol expects more from the state in terms of promoting its development needs, the President of the Limassol Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Andreas Tsouloftas noted in a recent meeting with Interior Minister Constantinos Ioannou. Among the issues raised at the meeting, held at the Ministry, were the long-awaited revision of the Limassol Local Plan, the need to promote basic infrastructure in the western part of the city between the marina and the new port and adjacent road projects.
The LCCI expressed satisfaction with the general framework of the new housing policy recently announced by the Ministry, noting however that the issue of coefficients should be reviewed, because the existing rates in various areas of Limassol are at low levels such that they cannot be exploited under the announced plan.
Regarding the migration issue, in relation to the pressing needs of the labor market, the LCCI requested that the possibility of deportees being able to return legally to Cyprus be examined, in those cases where these are people who have already received vocational training from their employers and the latter are satisfied with their performance and work ethic.
The President of the LCCI was accompanied during his meeting with the Minister by the members of the Board of Directors, Liakos Theodorou and Periklis Markaris.
