The further strengthening of the Cypriot registry by simplifying the registration procedures in it, with the creation of a register of registration of shipping companies in an attractive tax framework are the main axes of the shipping policy of the new government of Nikos Christodoulides.

"We want to strengthen the voice of Cypriot shipping internationally and allow the Cypriot flag to grow. Let Cyprus have a strong voice and role in decision-making."

He also made special reference to the attractive economic environment for shipping companies:

"We have seen the number of shipping companies from 95 have increased to 320" due to the tax regime" - the tax framework in force" and he added:

"The government's policy is clearly in the direction of promoting Cypriot shipping."
