The meetings recorded the prospects for the development of new authentic routes and points of interest in the specific communities.
Nicosia Tourism Board had the opportunity to consider the possibility of assistance in projects that are planned or are in the process of implementation. The issue of co-organizing joint events was also raised. At the same time, the Community authorities were informed regarding the financial opportunities that exist from the Plans of the Ministry of Tourism.
The meetings were also attended by members of the youth councils Farmaka and Kampi, while at the same time visits were made to local households (sweets of Eleni, speaker production workshop “Militsa”), the household of Maria Charalambous (tomato products) and the traditional sausages H & M, which promote the Cypriot gastronomy. ETAP Nicosia also visited the local Folk Art Museums in Kambi, Gourri and Fikardou.
Nicosia Tourism Board considers that the role is crucial and that these companies and the youth can play a big role in the development of tourism in mountain communities, as this sector can be a healthy field of economic progress.
