About Cyprus

Cyprus is a small island, located in the eastern Mediterranean, between the continents of Europe, Asia, and Africa. It covers an area  of  2571  square miles and has a population of  736,000.

Cyprus became independent in 1960, but in 1974 a Turkish invasion forced the

population to move to the south part of the island leaving 36% of the land occupied by Turkish forces.

Although Cyprus was initially an agricultural country with almost 50% of the population working on the land, today only 20% is engaged in agriculture.

The textile, tobacco and foodstuffs industry, and building and civil engineering, form a large part of the country’s economy. The major sector of the Cyprus industry is the services sector, with 40% of the working population occupied in this industry. Tourism and banking are two of the leading areas.

Cyprus is a full member of the European Union. more...
