Cyprus has the potential to become a global tourism and entertainment destination
Melco Cyprus is fully aware of the role it can play in assisting the development of the island's tourism industry and will ensure that the country becomes a global entertainment and business destination, according to Grant Johnson, senior vice president of casino sales and marketing, at a recent event.
The celebration marked the five-year anniversary of Cyprus's first licenced casino. It also attempted to honour the company's employees, with the first 57 employees receiving commemorative plates as a token of appreciation.
“Melco Cyprus is managing the temporary casino in Limassol and three satellite casinos in Nicosia, Ayia Napa and Paphos, while at the same time developing the City of Dreams Mediterranean resort-casino, a project that aspires to be a game-changer in the island’s tourism industry,” an announcement by the company said.
Grant Johnson, speaking on behalf of Melco Cyprus at the event, expressed gratitude to the personnel for their efforts and devotion, recognising their leading role and contribution in establishing the company as one of Cyprus's largest employers.
“Five years ago, City of Dreams Mediterranean was a distant dream, but now we are just months away from opening,” Johnson said.
“You have helped us grow this organisation and another 2,500 colleagues will soon join our team and follow in your footsteps,” he added.
He also stated that the corporation and its employees are working to ensure that Cyprus has a sustainable future.
“Melco Cyprus is aware of its important role in the development of the tourism industry and we will work tirelessly to ensure that the country emerges as a global tourist, entertainment and business destination,” he concluded.
It should be remembered that Melco entertained former President Nicos Anastasiades in February of this year at the City of Dreams Mediterranean resort in Limassol.
“The creation of a multi-thematic resort was one of the government’s goals, since we know that its creation would contribute towards enriching our tourist product, increasing tourist arrivals and creating new jobs, with obvious benefits for the Cypriot economy”, Anastasiades said at the time.
The Mediterranean integrated resort City of Dreams is set to open in the second quarter of 2023.
