Address by the Minister of Transport, Mr Marios Demetriades, at the conference «Cyprus Embraces Space 2016»

It gives me a great pleasure to address this conference and I would like to thank you all for your participation. Furthermore, I would like to extent my thanks to the organisers, the European University of Cyprus, our hosts, the Research Promotion Foundation, the Department of Electronic Communications, and the speakers of the conference. I would also like to welcome in Cyprus the delegates from the COSMOS 2020, the pan-European Network of Horizon 2020 National Contact Points for Space. Space data, applications and services, coupled with the rapid development of the digital economy, offer enormous potential benefits for more effective and efficient public policies, as well as opportunities for science, the private sector – especially in the business of value adding - and society. - 18.05.2016

Written statement by the Minister of Agriculture, Mr N. Kouyialis, on the proceedings of the EU Agriculture Council, in Brussels

Written statement by the Minister of Agriculture, Mr N. Kouyialis, on the proceedings of the EU Agriculture Council, in BrusselsHaving in mind the conclusions of the Paris Conference on Climate Change (COP21), we had today an in-depth discussion at the EU Agriculture Council on the role of agriculture in mitigating climate change. There is no doubt that agriculture and forests can contribute to further mitigating climate change. Adapting agriculture to climate change, however, must be achieved through pragmatic solutions, which must be applied directly and on a large scale. At the same time, any measures taken cannot be to the detriment of farmers or the competitiveness of European agriculture. For this reason, during today’s debate, we stressed the need to take account of the member states specificities and to define measurable and achievable targets, who do not pose a threat to the sustainability of agricultural and forestry holdings. We referred, at the same time, to the need for proper prioritization, in order to duly safeguard largely competitive uses of land for food production. - 17.5.2016
