Will Cyprus’ Lacks of Skilled Workers Become a Problem by 2025?

Last week in Nicosia, influential leaders within the business community bore their concerns to the Cyprus government over a potential blockage in economic growth as a result of a lack of skilled workers. The findings were presented, as well as plans for their longstanding proposal that worker strikes in essential services such as healthcare, accident and emergency and public transport must be controlled by Cyprus legislation.

Representatives of the Employers & Industrialists Federation (OEB) as well as the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry held a meeting at the presidential palace in Nicosia with President Nicos Anastasiades in attendance. He was joined by Finance Minister Mr Harris Georgiades and the Minister of Energy & Commerce Mr Yiorgos Lakkotrypis.
