The deputy ministry of tourism has announced that a study is underway to explore the growing possibilities in terms of tourism in the area of Polis Chrysochous.

In an announcement released on Monday, the ministry said the study, which is part of the national tourism strategy launched by the government for 2020-2030, will last 12 months.

Several different players will take part in it, including consulting companies from Cyprus and from abroad, and government officials with a foothold in the specific area.

The idea of the study is to enable the development of Polis Chrysochous in terms of tourism, with a keen eye on sustainable and alternative solutions, a source at the deputy ministry of tourism confirmed.

It will carefully examine the advantages and disadvantages of the area and will ultimately lay out what are the growth perspective for tourism.

This study is part of broader government plans for the development and promotion of areas in Cyprus that have not largely benefited from tourism so far.
