China’s Minister of Foreign Affairs visits President of Cyprus



China’s Minister of Foreign Affairs visits President of Cyprus

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the People`s Republic of China, Wang Yi, visited Cyprus during December.

The Chinese minister arrived to hold meetings with President Nicos Anastasiades and President of the House Yiannakis Omirou, to participate in official talks between delegations of the two countries headed by his Cypriot counterpart Ioannis Kasoulides.

Mr Wang’s visit is the last in recent weeks by a number of high-level foreign arrivals including the foreign ministers of Russia, Britain, Germany and the US, plus a brief stopover by French President Francois Hollande. President Anastasiades was in China in October to boost ties and came away with the message that there was willingness on the part of Beijing, in investing in Cyprus.

He said at the time that Cyprus’ participation in the Silk Road Initiative would benefit relations by default as the policy itself implied the strengthening of China’s economic relations with participating countries.

It was also announced during the visit that the government was implementing a series of measures which included the simplification of procedures for the faster issuing of permits and licensing of investment projects and operation of businesses, as well as the speedier granting of residence permits to foreign investors, and visas for visitors that would help in securing more investment and visitors from China.
