THE EU Infopoint office, which aims to bring the Turkish Cypriot community closer to the European Union, has been inaugurated in the northern part of Nicosia.
“The office will help Turkish Cypriots satisfy their need for information on issues of the European Union through activities and a dynamic presence on social media,” the office of the representation of the European Commission in Cyprus said in an announcement.
The EU Infopoint, which was inaugurated by Director General for Regional and Urban Policy Directorate of the European Commission Walter Deffaa, is open to the public, civil society organisations, the media, academics, schools, companies and members of the farming community, the announcement said.
“This office is an excellent example of a modern and attractive space and I am sure it will have many visitors and will do a great job in raising awareness on issues concerning the EU and the aid programme to the Turkish Cypriot community,” Deffaa said.
It also provides information on the EU’s policies and legislation through brochures, booklets and online media and it plans to organise events, seminars, conferences and workshops.
The EU Infopoint is a 30-month project that will run until mid 2017.
