According to the Minister of commerce industry and tourism (Mr Lakkotripis) a meeting will be held between the ministry, CERA (Cyprus Electricity Regulation Authority) and other authorities with main subject, the adaptation of electricity prices to the shocked economy. The minister claimed that the measures are to be applied immediately in order to aid the peoples finances during this difficult time. So hopefully this months electricity bill will be lower than expected.
The agenda also includes the prolongation of the tourism season in order to keep people employed in the tourism industry around the whole year. The ministry’s main target is to reestablish the country tourism ranking and ensure that it remains an attraction to tourists from the biggest markets such as the UK and Russia.
