“The aim is in the future to have a continuous communication between us in order to be able to promote the interests of our own states, our businesses and our members,” he said. He also spoke on the importance of building an ecosystem for promoting entrepreneurship and innovation, with the support of the three governments.

Vice President of AmCham Greece Marios Kyriakou said that there were common goals and that each chamber could benefit from the experiences of the other two. He also said that there’s a lot of interest from Greek companies to invest in Cyprus especially in the sectors of construction and shipping. As he said, there’s an increased activity and “we will see much more in the next years”.

On behalf of the AmCham Israel Oded Rose said that regional and international cooperation, in business brings people together and it’s a stabilization factor to the regions. He also said that he saw the most cooperation opportunities in the sectors of energy, shipping, transportation and financial services. He added that there were a lot of opportunities in the fields of innovation and technology.
