Welcome to the future flagship forum of Cyprus. The main difference of our forum from all others is that all user posts and news from the Cypriot media are automatically translated into three languages: Greek, English and Russian. The translation is done with the help of an innovative neuronet, so we expect a quality result.
The main mission of the forum is to unite all the international communities of Cyprus, erasing all linguistic boundaries between them. Currently we are inviting all interested people to develop the sections of the forum.
We look forward to welcoming you as a new user!

The aim of the Plan is, on the one hand, to provide quality services to low-income people, but also to support our country's mountain resorts, which, through their operation, offer a significant number of jobs in areas outside urban centres, enhance the tourist product of Cyprus during the winter months, thus helping to extend the tourist season and, through their operation, support to a significant extent the communities in which they operate.

As regards the application procedure, the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance will inform the beneficiaries in detail as soon as the procedures regarding the implementation of the Plan are finalised.
