Paphos based travel agency Anesis Travel & Tours Ltd has signed an agreement with the Chinese, Zhongjia Chenfei General Aviation company to accommodate direct flights from Shanghai to Paphos starting from March 2016. Tourism officials in Cyprus are hopeful that up to 400000 Chinese tourists will be visiting the island during the next summer holiday season. A group of Chinese travel agents, journalists and TV crews will visit Cyprus before the end of the year. The news came after the recent visit to China by the President of Paphos Chamber of Commerce and Industry Andreas Demetriades who also stated that the possibility of creating a technological park which would attract Chinese investment in the area was also discussed.
