Cyprus is an influential global business hub & gateway to the European Union (EU) & wider EMEA region.

Since the early 80s, Cyprus has enjoyed significant economic growth and development, quickly positioning itself as a prominent jurisdiction for fiduciary and professional corporate services, including legal, company formations, accounting and administration, individual and corporate taxation planning, international banking, as well as tourism and real estate, among other. This was further boosted by entry into the European Union and Eurozone currency area, as well as its existing powerful geographical and geopolitical location. Despite later economic challenges, induced by the Global Financial Crisis, banking and property bubble, Cyprus, backed by Troika, managed to undertake major reforms and restructuring to its financial and public system in order to prepare for a more sustainable and bright future. This is now being supported by major investments in a number of key sectors, no least in energy and hydrocarbons, geared to significantly enhance the economy and business environment, together with existing stronghold economic areas of professional services, maritime/shipping, tourism, real estate and education.
