It is situated at the north-eastern end of the East Mediterranean basin at a distance of 380 kms north of Egypt, 105 kms west of Syria and 75kms south of Turkey. The Greek mainland is some 800 kms to the west. The nearest Greek islands are Rhodes and Carpathos, 380 kms to the west. The latitude of Cyprus is 34 33’ - 35 34’ north and its longitude 32 16’ - 34 37’ east.


History

Cyprus, according to Mythology, is the birthplace of the goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite. The island is both an ancient land, with an eleven thousand year-old history and civilization as well as a young independent republic since 1960. Its geographic location at the crossroads of three continents- Europe, Asia and Africa- and at the meeting point of great civilizations, has been one of the factors influencing the course of the island's history throughout the centuries.

Culture/Heritage

Cyprus represents the heritage of a country endowed with a history of over 10,000 years. The passing of 10 millennia has made this small country an endless banquet of history and has given an incredible rich heritage and enviable culture. The fact that UNESCO has included in its official World Heritage List, the Sanctuary of Aphrodite, antiquities of Pafos, Neolithic settlement of Khirokitia and ten Byzantine churches in Troodos, gives an indication of the rich cultural heritage of the island. Significant historical personalities such as Alexander the Great and Cleopatra have connected their names with the Island. Aphrodite, the beauty and love Goddess, was born in Cyprus and her name identifies with that of the Island (Kyprida). Despite the fact that in its history of many centuries, it faced many conquerors, Cyprus developed and for thousand years maintained its culture, assimilating any type of influence. Cyprus, remained the center of the Hellenic culture with a few distinctive characteristics. With the passing of years, the distinct identity and character of the Cypriots has been formated as well. The people of Cyprus are characterised by, their progressiveness, education and open-heartiness. They are also known for being hard-working and condescending. A well known characteristic of all the Cypriots and especially of the people living in the countryside, is their genuine hospitality. Today, Cyprus, a modernised country and harmonised in the European family, constitutes through its historical and ancient heritage, a living evidence of the routes of the European culture. Its people have succeeded to combine its proud ancient history and cultural heritage with an ultra-modern infrastructure and a cosmopolitan lifestyle. The life in Cyprus, comprises rich activities in all aspects of its cultural life, such as, in literature and poetry; folk arts, artistic photography; theatre and cinema; music and dancing; sports and others. Kypria, the International Festival, is a characteristic example of the cultural development in Cyprus. The festival is organised every year during the months of September-October and famous groups and artists of international prestige from Cyprus, Greece and other countries participate in opera, theatrical, musical, dance, cinema and folk arts performances. The Ministry of Education and Culture is responsible, through its Cultural Services, for formulating and implementing the cultural policy of the Government. The State encourages and supports the advancement of modern cultural and sports facilities for internal cultivation, mental and physical development, as well as for entertainment and exercising purposes. This policy is also expressed through the continuous financial funding that the Government provides to the various organisations, clubs and cultural associations for their progress, as well as for further development and exploitation of the athletes/artists and specially of the young people. Volunteerism has always been a vital part of our culture and society. 


Environment

Cyprus is positioned on the crossroad of three continents, Europe, Asia and Africa, in the north-eastern region of the Mediterranean. It covers a total of 9.251 square kilometres, with the largest length being 225 kilometres and largest width 97 kilometres. The natural wealth of the island is the result of the changes of nature through time, and particularly ground and climate conditions, the adjacency with three continents, the long-lasting isolation as an island, as well as the effect of the human factor. The Cypriot variety of interchangeable landscapes, such as mountains, plains, valleys, cliffs, gorges, caves, steep coasts, as well as the local climatic variety, helped in the creation of abundant biotopes.
Protection Of The Environment
The environment was influenced by the millenniums which followed the appearance of the first cultures on the island, nearly 9.000 years ago. In recent Cyprus history, what marked it's course, but also it's environment, more than any other event, was the Turkish invasion in 1974 and the continuing, until today, possession of 37% of the island by Turkey. 
The rapid development of the island which followed the events of 1974, did not have the luxury, initially, to take into account the protection of the environment, but only the most direct and imperative need of accommodating 200.000 refugees and reactivating the economy. As a result, serious negative repercussions were caused to the environment. 
Today, the things are changing with a quick pace. Cyprus, being an official member of the European Union, has brought the protection of the environment into the forefront of its concerns, making it a political priority. In Europe, processes and procedures have been set, and laws have been voted, that make the protection of the environment as a fundamental objective of the society. 
This institutional frame has also been adopted by Cyprus and as a complete member of European Union, Cyprus has included in it's legislation more than 300 Directives and Regulations and enough action plans that concern the subjects of the protection of the environment.

Health

The health standards compare favourably with those of developed countries. As shown by demographic data, life expectancy is similar to that of developed countries, maternal mortality is almost zero, and the infant mortality rate is slightly higher. The achievement of a high level of health is attributed to the improvement of healthcare services and the high standard of living. Cyprus enjoys excellent living conditions. Appropriate treatment of drinking water, excellent weather conditions and a good transport network are some of the factors that have contributed to the achievement of high levels of health indicators among the Cypriot population. The main causes of death are the same as those afflicting the industrially developed countries of Europe. Infectious diseases do not constitute a serious public health problem in Cyprus today, while cardiovascular diseases, cancer, road traffic and other accidents constitute the main causes of death. Hospital care has been improved and decentralised. There are new general hospitals in all the provinces, while the construction of the New General Hospitals of Nicosia and Famagusta have recently been completed. Tertiary medical care has been developed to such a degree that a lot of cases which used to be sent for treatment abroad, are now being treated in Cyprus. Kidney transplantations, open heart surgery, cardiac catheterisations and neurosurgical interventions are now routinely carried out in Cyprus. The private sector of health care supply successfully covers around 50% of primary and secondary health care and makes a significant contribution to the maintenance of high level of health. New clinics are being established in the private sector while the number of new doctors and dentists entering the corresponding registries is increasing. The voluntary sector provides in an essential way, remarkable social programmes and services, in the health domain and health related issues. These include palliative and long-term care/pharmaceutical care, diagnostic and clinical services, etc. 

Population and Culture

Australia is still heavily influenced by its British and European origins. The Australian government is now making major efforts to preserve Australia,s culture, including that of the Aboringines. 


Employment

In General
Qualitative imbalances and the shortage of jobs are the result of numerous factors, such as the small size of the workforce in Cyprus, the quantum leap made by the economy of Cyprus over recent years and the new challenges faced by the Cypriot job market by reason of its imminent entry into the single European market, together with spiralling technological progress throughout the world and the gradual changeover from traditional to new, knowledge based economies. In order to anticipate and meet these challenges efficiently, the job market needs to adapt by creating a flexible and adaptable productive workforce and encouraging changes in job structures. This implies improving the quality and quantity of the workforce in order to ensure that employment improves both quantitatively and qualitatively, and the economy of Cyprus can respond efficiently to the quantum leap it is making. The employment policy is formed within the scope of the strategic development plan of the Cypriot Government. The policy aims at fully and productively utilizing human workforce under conditions of full employment.
