Hermes Airports: Tourism industry well-placed to successfully overcome new challenges

This year been a defining year for tourism, both globally and for Cyprus, as the tourism industry is affected by rapid changes in the political, economic, transport, energy and environment sectors.

Despite these adversities, the tourism sector remains a vital and active sector that continues to move forward and evolve through the vision and collaboration of a wide group of people. Cyprus’ tourism industry is manned by a group of experienced, dedicated and qualified people, that have proven numerous times they can overcome challenges and lead the way in growing Cyprus’ economy, for the wider society’s benefit.
