The Republic of Cyprus will host in Nicosia from 10th to 12th of November the Eastern Mediterranean Conference (EMC), which will focus on ‘Unlocking Cleaner Energy for the Region, for Europe & Beyond’, and it will be the occasion to discuss about new energy sources, best practices and opportunities for collaboration to produce clean energy, and also about the strategic plans included in the RRNPs of the different countries, concretely aiming at the realization of the European Green Deal.
The Eastern Mediterranean Conference and Exhibition (EMC) will take place under the auspices of the Ministry of Energy, Trade and Industry of Cyprus and will have as National Host the Cyprus Hydrocarbons Company (CHC). Several institutional partners including the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment of Cyprus, the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KEBE) and the Cyprus Employers and Industrialists Federation (OEB). Particularly relevant is the Italian presence represented by the Italian Trade Agency and the Italian-Cypriot Chamber of Commerce that will accompany the event several Italian companies of the sector, some of which were already present at the OMC Med held in Ravenna on 28-30 September.
The conference will be opened by the Minister of Energy, Trade and Industry of the Republic of Cyprus H.E. Natasa Pilides, who recently stated: “The production and storage of renewable energy, the liberalization of the energy market, leveraging technology to develop hydrogen solutions, the use of natural gas as a step to complete decarbonization, are the cornerstones of our energy strategy and I am sure that, thanks to partnerships with neighboring countries, we can achieve the transition to the circular economy and sustainable growth”.
The President of the Italian-Cypriot Chamber of Commerce, Giuseppe Marino, will be one of the speakers at the conference, representing the interests of Italian companies already active in cooperation with Cyprus and to boost new business synergies. The President declared to be “certain that the event will be a driving force for the economy of the Italian-Cypriot axis and that it will contribute to create a climate of trust and effective cooperation between the institutions and businesses of our two countries”. The Chamber has been working for years in close contact with the Cypriot Ministry of Energy, acting as a bridge with the high institutional bodies of both countries and has contributed to consolidate a reality of cooperation based on univocal objectives and climate of trust, particularly noted during the 4th Italian-Cypriot Business Forum, held in Rome on September 29, with the focus on ‘Italian and Cypriot NRRPs: Relaunching the Mediterranean Economy through Cooperation’, which was also an insight of some particular interesting issues for the Italian-Cypriot axis such as Waste to Energy and Circular Economy.
In consideration of the important resources allocated at European level and the important strategic positioning of Cyprus in the Mediterranean area, there will be numerous and particularly relevant opportunities that can be explored by Italian companies and, in this regard, the Italian-Cypriot Chamber of Commerce confirms and relaunches its institutional role of strategic support.
