Shipping = Limassol

Cyprus recognised, as early as 1963, the political, economic and social importance of shipping and managed to attract shipping entrepreneurs and to develop the island into a fully-fledged shipping centre combining both a sovereign flag and a resident shipping industry, which is renowned for its high quality services and standards of safety. The island΄s strategic location, which is at the crossroads of three continents (Europe, Asia, Africa) enabled Cyprus to play a prominent role in its success as an international shipping centre, especially Limassol.
