Cyprus Investment Conference and Exhibition
In association with Cyprus-Russian Business, Navigator is pleased to announce the launch of the Best Invest Cyprus, an investment exhibition and conference focusing on Cyprus. The conference will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Limassol on 18-20 October 2015.
In March 2013, Cyprus became the fourth Eurozone country to receive emergency financial assistance, touching off a recession. With economic growth now resuming and major new investments now launched, the Best Invest Conference provides investors and policy-makers with a detailed and informed update of investment projects and opportunities in Cyprus.
The Conference Agenda
The BestInvest Conference is a 1-day event providing a balanced and comprehensive assessment of the Cyprus economy and investment opportunities. It is oriented towards practitioners and provides a state-of-the-art review of main issues and opportunities.
