It has been organized by Cyprus Guangdong Association of Commerce under instructions of Ayia Napa Municipality of the Republic of Cyprus.

Cyprus Guangdong Association of Commerce is a non-profit organization registered in Cyprus targeting overseas Chinese worldwide. Despite its short history, the Association has established a firm presence in various sectors in both China and Cyprus and is now experiencing exponential development. It is fully committed to promoting friendly relations between Chinese and Cypriot cities.
值得一提的是，塞浦路斯广东商会自 2017 年 10 月商会在塞浦路斯举办的“中塞国际旅游文化艺术节”引起塞浦路斯民间各界的好评，获得中国驻塞浦路斯共和国大使馆及当地政府的认可。今年 3 月，在商会的积极助推下，塞浦路斯共和国国家旅游局、阿依纳帕市政厅考察团作为国际嘉宾受邀参加了广州国际旅游展，期间举办了“塞浦路斯国家资源新闻发布会”，并签署了多项战略协议。

With the aid of the Association, the delegation comprised of Cyprus Tourism Organization and Ayia Napa Municipality was invited to participate in the Guangzhou International Travel Fair in March this year. During their stay, the “Cyprus National Resources Press Conference” has been held and multiple strategic agreements signed.
As the entity designated by the Government to host the official delegation from Cyprus and to organize the Cyprus National Resources Forum, Cyprus Guangdong Association of Commerce will work actively to promote friendly exchanges between Chinese and Cypriot cities and facilitate official communications between the two countries to achieve information sharing, mutual complementarity and win-win cooperation.

As Guangzhou is on its way to transform itself from a thousand-year-old commercial hub to an international metropolis, Cyprus Guangdong Association of Commerce will, as always, serve as a bridge in Guangzhou’s going global efforts and play a part in building a human community with shared destiny.
