“Boosting EU economy through training of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) advisors” is a project with the aim to increase foreign investments by developing a unique training programme which will equip FDI advisors with all the knowledge, skills and competences needed to provide all in one support for internationalization and relocation of foreign investors in one place.

Objectives of the project:

  • To improve quality and access to vocational education and training,
  • To improve knowledge and skills of employees in relevant consulting companies,
  • To improve employability of adult learners.

Based on the extensive international survey within the project, training programme with learning materials for mentors, training programme with learning materials for FDI advisors, and initiatives to include FDI advisors’ training programme into national educational schemes will be developed.

International dimension, ensured by consortium of partners and other relevant organizations from Croatia, Cyprus and Slovenia, enriches the project by broader overview, comparison and understanding of foreign investors' needs.

FDI advisors, included in the training programme, will be able to provide information and support in all relevant fields (from selection of the right type of investment opportunity, opening and running the business to real estate investment, reallocation, funds raising and after care services). They will have knowledge and skills to attract potential foreign investors and thus contribute to national GDP increase, creation of new jobs and other positive effects of FDI in country.

Why invest in Cyprus?

“Cyprus is a modern, cosmopolitan, transparent business center offering opportunities for investment across a wide range of sectors”.

Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, located at the eastern end of Europe, at the crux of the busy shipping and air routes linking 3 continents, Europe, Africa and Asia. The island, through its rich and turbulent history, going back more than 10 000 years, has developed from a Stone Age settlement into a modern and thriving European Union state today, with a host of opportunities and prospects for economic growth and prosperity.

This small but dynamic country has long established a strong reputation as a “centre of excellence” for international business activities, retaining unique clusters of expertise and service capability to support key growth sectors of the economy.

Capitalising on its competitive advantages, driving and enhancing both traditional and new economic sectors and continuously improving and enhancing its business environment, Cyprus has developed into a destination of choice for doing business.

Cyprus has a modern, free-market, service-based economy with an effective and transparent regulatory and legal framework offering international investors and domestic businesses confidence to invest, grow and prosper. It continuously and systematically strives to offer an innovative, diverse and investor-friendly environment

The Project is co-funded by European commission through Erasmus+ programme.
