Cyprus first official stop for new EU commissioner Kyriakides

Stella Kyriakides

European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Stella Kyriakides will be in Cyprus on Thursday and Friday in her first official visit to a member state since taking up her post in the von der Leyen Commission.

“I am delighted to be visiting Cyprus in my first official mission as the Commissioner for Health and Food Safety,” she said in a statement.

Further to the meetings planned with President Nicos Anastasiades, House President Demetris Syllouris and the foreign, health and agriculture ministers she will also take part in an open dialogue with citizens on issues relating to her portfolio and, more broadly, to the targets the Commission has set for the next five years in the areas of health and food safety.

One such target is to get closer to the citizens, to “give them the opportunity to tell us about their concerns”.
