PRESS RELEASE FOR CADASTRAL AND URBAN PLANNING

55576258_1495533480584031_8595519819011325952_n

19 February 2019

After the struggle that was given by the tourist commercial and industrial company of Famagusta in collaboration with the local authorities of the district of Famagusta on 4 February 2019, the new offices of the Department of Urban Planning and housing and the Famagusta Department of Lands and Surveying in Paralimni.

Clearly, the transfer of parts to the Famagusta District is a development which we welcome, but the state must support these departments so that they can serve the needs of the province.

At the meeting that had a delegation from TEVENA with the two departments, it was found that there was a serious problem understaffing the divisions. Staff shortages are too many and in various specialties. Indicatively There is no bailiff in the Department of Urban Planning and there is a substaffing in the archive and the technical service. The substaffing of the divisions resulted from the non-filling of vacancies due to the absence of service, as well as the general freezing of recruitment in the public sector. The wider recovery of the economy and especially in the real estate sector known by the Famagusta District and Cyprus in general, has created the need for further recruitment in the departments.

In the building there is no canteen to serve the employees as well as the citizens who visit the departments. It should also be noted that the reception – waiting area is too small to serve the needs arising from the daily service of the public.

During the meeting also discussed proposals – suggestions that can help the departments cope with their heavy workload, in addition to their further staffing such as the use of the online system “Ariadne” by more Citizens. Through the “Ariadne” system, individuals and banks are given the opportunity to request the issuance of certificates and generally to submit various applications that will help reduce the workload of the departments. A better and more targeted public information campaign should be made about the capabilities of the system, as well as training for those citizens wishing to be informed about the system.

The departments provide the opportunity for young graduates to acquire the one-year work experience required to obtain the permission to practice their profession through HRDA’s programmes. This possibility should be promoted both through the universities for better information of the graduates of engineers and the ETEC.

Finally, TEVENA will continue to support all governmental services of the Famagusta District through its actions and will continue the effort started in 2012 along with the local authorities to resolve the problems of our province.

PRESS RELEASE FOR A NEWSLETTER FOR THE CYPRUS INVESTMENT PROGRAM

56208352_1500607010076678_5300536323881304064_o

February 13th

A briefing on the Cyprus investment Programme was held yesterday by the tourist, commercial and industrial company of Famagusta. The workshop was intended to inform the interested parties about the current programme and the possible changes to it following external and internal reactions.

During the event, the attendees were given the opportunity to be informed by members of the Famagusta district about the debate on the matter in the House and the relevant proposal for a law tabled and passed a few days ago for the Theme.

The attendees were also given the opportunity to get to know and understand better the concepts of innovation and Startup business through speech K. Panagiotis Filimi, chairman of the Association of Research and Innovation enterprises.

Following discussion and submission of proposals were formed the following suggestions for the Cyprus Investment Program:

  • Simplification of procedures by the Central bank for the inflow of capital in Cyprus

The current situation, with the controls required by the central bank, is terribly time-consuming, with the result that the investor is discouraged and that unnecessary bureaucracy is created. That is, there should be proper control in a short time.

  • Stability and consistency in the programme criteria

The frequent change in the criteria and conditions of the program affects its prestige and credibility. We think we should find the way any changes are made now because of the external and internal reactions to take effect for a long time.

  • Targeted investment in other sectors of the economy

The general investment framework that exists today is suitable for attracting investments and in specific sectors of the economy such as tourism, pharmaceuticals and agriculture, etc. by granting additional incentives in these areas.

Finally, everyone emphasised the need to maintain the programme which contributed greatly to the saving of the Cypriot economy by providing liquidity during the economic crisis and continues to offer directly or indirectly to many sectors of the Cyprus Economy.
