After a meeting with Cypriot Foreign Minister Nicos Christodoulides, Miro Cerar said: “Economic cooperation between Slovenia and Cyprus is relatively modest so we have a lot of potential for its development and I think we will do much more in the next years to use these potentials and to make our economic cooperation even stronger.”
The two Foreign Ministers agreed that sectors with the possibility of increased cooperation were mostly in the areas of: transport, logistics, banking and finance, construction and engineering, healthcare, water management and tourism.
Nicos Christodoulides said they had the opportunity to review the full spectrum of bilateral relations, as well as to compare notes on a number of topics that were high on the agenda of the European Union, after their discussions in Luxembourg, during the European Union Foreign Affairs Council. “We also exchanged views on various pressing issues unfolding in our region and beyond, that are of common interest or common concern,” he added.
Christodoulides also noted: “We share common goals and aspirations in a number of areas, from foreign policy issues to human rights and multilateral cooperation. As always, there is plenty of room for further improvement, and we, therefore, identified concrete areas and thematics in which we could strengthen our cooperation, such as trade and investment, as well as through enhancing our consultations, both at bilateral level but also within the framework of the European Union.”
He further highlighted their determination to take concrete steps in order to pursue stronger trade relations and promote business opportunities between Cypriot and Slovenian businesspeople, as well as to further boost people-to-people contacts.
