Cyprus: The gateway to global investments - November 2015

China’s contribution to global investments is of crucial importance for the restoration of global economic stability and growth, as chinese investments are spread worldwide across all major industries and China is the second largest economy in the world.

Cyprus, a long established business centre on the Eastern end of the European Union, offers the ideal location through which China can channel its investments anywhere in the world.

Cyprus has gained this enviable position through its excellent infrastructure, the quality of professional services and its legal, regulatory and tax regime. At the same time Cyprus’ EU harmonized legislation as well as its strong ties with Eastern Europe make it the ideal gateway to European investments.
