The government’s goal has been and continues to be the transformation of Larnaca into a modern European city, Anastasiades said, adding that the promotion of projects such as Petrolina’s new terminal in Vasilikos is the driving force for the economy.

The president described the event as “a new day for Larnaca, for the energy centre and for Cyprus.”
