The govern­ment con­sid­ers in­vest­ments in ed­u­ca­tion as a pri­mary pil­lar for so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and sup­ports in ev­ery way, within its po­ten­tials, both the uni­ver­si­ties and grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate stu­dents, Pres­i­dent Ni­cos Anast­sa­iades said dur­ing the UCLan Cyprus univer­sity in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony in Pyla.

Anas­tasi­ades noted that “the found­ing and oper­a­tion of a new univer­sity is some­thing im­por­tant for the ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion of our coun­try, since it broad­ens the pro­vided univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion and at the same time con­trib­utes to the fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of sci­en­tific re­search and spir­i­tual life.”

Fur­ther­more it en­hances our ef­fort to es­tab­lish Cyprus as an ed­u­ca­tional and re­search cen­tre in the south­east­ern Mediter­ranean re­gion, he added.

The Pres­i­dent said that the de­vel­op­ment of higher ed­u­ca­tion helps at­tract Euro­pean and other fi­nanc­ing in the fields of re­search and in­no­va­tion, re­in­forces the cul­tural back­ground of our people and makes Cyprus an ac­tive mem­ber and equal part­ner within the Euro­pean and global arena.
