Dr. Theodore Panayotou, Director of CIIM commented that “today is particularly important for CIIM, since through this programme, we put the basis for the promotion of entrepreneurship in local, regional, and international level. Cyprus has started becoming a magnet for higher education and our goal at CIIM is to lead this effort, something we have begun through several initiatives. This project brings us in contact with other countries in the region, which will award this project more scope and impact. We intend to incorporate even more students, media, citizens and generally all the Cypriot society, and we are honored that we have with us today our Minister, Mr. Marios Demetriades, where his attendance reflects the importance that our Government provides to education”.
The Minister of Transport, Communications and Works, Mr. Marios Demetriades, emphasised that “this initiative brings to the surface what Cyprus actually needs, the development of entrepreneurship and new modern forms of technology and innovation as they are key-pillars of Government and we are glad to see that CIIM is moving in this direction. Such initiatives are needed and will work alongside the Government’s intention to invest in the future and innovation to have Cyprus become even more competitive at international level.” While he also stressed “how good a job CIIM does is shown by the number of graduates employed in my field of work – I see them daily and I am very happy with the success of this educational organisation”.
