CyprusProfile.com asked Stavros Pantzaris, Country Managing Partner of EY Cyprus, what key areas of opportunity or growth he sees in his sector, and what his expectations are for Cyprus in 2017.
"Our aim is to make Cyprus even more attractive for foreign investment. As the economy continues to grow, it’s drawing more international attention from investors, developers and funds. Indicative of the positive climate, despite the difficult times the banking sector has been through, is that foreign investors are showing confidence in Cyprus by investing significant capital. Also on the rise is Cyprus’ energy sector, with international players relocating to Cyprus and hiring qualified staff from the domestic market. These efforts have the potential to transform the island into a regional energy hub".
