Respected Mr. Director of the Office of the President,
Respected Mr. Permanent Secretary of Transport, Telecommunications, and Works
Ladies and gentlemen, dear friends:
It is my great pleasure to visit the beautiful coastal city of Limassol in this pleasant and refreshing autumn season, and it is also a delight for me to attend the launching ceremony of “The Road-CYhere” Internet Platform. Hereby, on behalf of the Chinese Embassy in Cyprus, I wish the conference a complete success.
In recent years, with the concerted efforts of two sides, we have witnessed outstanding achievements and fruitful results in bilateral economic and trade cooperation in various fields such as aviation, telecommunication, satellite, energy and tourism. Given the fact that the Chinese government is firmly supporting the Chinese enterprises to actively carry out international cooperation and the Cyprus government has introduced a series of helpful initiatives to attract foreign investment, the two countries are facing a bright future of cooperation in different aspects.
In today's world, the Internet as well as other information technologies is changing rapidly and bringing tremendous impact upon different aspects of our life. More and more enterprises are exploring the overseas markets, tapping business opportunities and seeking partnership through the internet platforms. CYhere, as a platform that serves enterprise directly, collects and integrates useful information into a one-stop mobile application, is a product coming at the right time and is something much needed.
It is our wish that CYhere Internet platform goes more popular among entrepreneurs, demonstrates a good model for business communication, and opens the door of opportunities for more enterprises. And I also hope entrepreneurs can seize the development trend of the Internet era, to find opportunities for pragmatic cooperation, and to promote China-Cyprus economic and trade cooperation to a higher level.
As a China popular lyrics goes, “may I ask where the road is? It is where you take your first step.” For all the friends here today, let’s take action to be a promoter and a guide to the cooperation between our two countries, and make greater contribution to the socio-economic development of both countries and to the deep friendly relations between China and Cyprus.
