THE ANNUAL Overseas Cypriots conference wrapped up in Nicosia on Thursday with the leaders of the various organisations from the US and the UK holding a joint news conference.
The organisations included the International Coordinating Committee “Justice for Cyprus” (POMAK-PSEKA) and the 7th World Conference of Young Overseas Cypriots (NEPOMAK).
During their week-long conference the groups were briefed on the Cyprus issue and the economy by President Nicos Anastasiades and various ministers, according to POMAK’s Andreas Papaevripides,
“The briefings… put us on a new path of thinking as regards to the actions that should be undertaken by overseas Cypriots for the promotion of Cyprus’ national interests,” he said. He also said the UK and the US were expected to play a key role in the Cyprus issue in the coming period.
PSEKA president Philip Christopher said a series of contacts was being scheduled for Anastasiades’ visit to the US to attend the UN General Assembly next month.
On the economy, he said his organisation had submitted proposals to the president on ways in which expat Cypriots could contribute to efforts for recovery of the economy.
