Cyprus Casinos “C2” and City of Dreams Mediterranean, Cyprus’ first and only licensed Integrated Resort (IR) and one of the largest in Europe and the region, celebrate the World Tourism Day by reiterating their ongoing support to build a quality tourism offer that attracts more visitors to the island.
The World Tourism Organisation has dedicated this year’s World Tourism Day to ‘Tourism and Rural Development’, showcasing the contribution of the industry to the survival of rural areas and preserving their cultural and natural heritage. Melco’s vision is aligned with this year’s theme as the company aims to create a sustainable economy by supporting local communities, employing local talent and forging alliances with local partners.
Grant Johnson, property general manager, City of Dreams Mediterranean and Cyprus Casinos “C2”, commented that tourism opens a new window of opportunities for rural areas and local economies. “Tourism has undoubtedly been a major driver of growth for the Cyprus economy over the years, helping the country through challenging periods. Cyprus Casinos and City of Dreams Mediterranean will be a catalyst to creating an all season destination. This will contribute to sustainable economic growth and tourism expansion in Cyprus,” he added.
