AmCham Cyprus expresses its great satisfaction with the agreement for the institutionalization of a Strategic Dialogue between the Republic of Cyprus and the United States of America reached yesterday during the visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Constantinos Kombos, to the United States.

In addition to strengthening political, economic and social ties, the agreement is expected to bring multiple and multi-layered benefits and will strengthen the great prospects for further advancing the co-operation between Nicosia and Washington in vital areas, such as Energy, research and technology, security, attraction of investments and trade.

We also warmly welcome the signing of a bilateral cooperation agreement on the use of travel data that further brings closer our country to the inclusion in the US Visa Waiver Program that will allow Cypriot citizens to travel to the United States without the need to obtain, in advance, an entry permit.
