MOSCOW, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. The flow of Russian tourists has saved Cyprus’ economy, Cypriot Ambassador to Russia Georgios Kasoulides said on Monday.
“We’re grateful to Russian tourists for arriving in Cyprus for the rest despite the crisis,” Kasoulides said, adding “Russian tourists are the best ones because they behave decently and spend much money.”
“For the past two months we’ve been observing steps towards stopping cash outflow,” the Cypriot diplomat said.
In the last two months about 400 million euros have been come to Cyprus’ banks, Kasoulides said.
“Of course, I can say the problem is not solved. We hope that the year 2014 will be very difficult for Cyprus’ economy. However, the country has goodwill to take steps towards invigorating the economy,” he said.
“This year we expect 600,000 Russian tourists to visit Cyprus. We hope that next year the number will increase up to 800,000,” the diplomat said.
