I take it you were not born in Cyprus, also I presume that in your entire life the probable maximum time you spent in Cyprus is about 3 months in total.

My daughter was born in London, English mother. She has lived in Cyprus for over 20 years. She loves the island and would not dream of living anywhere else.

My younger brother returned to Cyprus in 1991 after almost 30 years in London. He would never dream of living elsewhere. The same applied to my late sister, my late brother in law and my late father.

Over the years I average at least 7 trips per year to Cyprus, about 10 weeks in total.

I do not look Cypriot, my English accent is BBC , and in many respects I have adopted an English approach to most things. I know Cyprus, I doubt very much that you do or indeed if you are a good judge of life in Cyprus. To call Cyprus a third world country is frankly bizarre but you also praised the Arabic culture elevating it to a higher level than the western one. I rest my case.

By the way, and I hate to bring this up, but any thoughts on what to do with those humble pies you dished out recently :lol: :lol:

Why on earth would a young family migrate to Cyprus from the UK, Australia, Canada or USA.



And why wouldn't they?

I didn't say your shit.

But you do not compare to the opportunities and conveniences of living overseas. Not even close.

The reason why you wouldn't come to Cyprus is because your work opportunities and business opportunities. It's just not worth it.

If Cyprus managed to attract Cypriots from the diaspora to migrate back, you would have a strong economy. That is the fact of it. There would also be low unemployment because the diaspora has a lot of money to bring.

But to get them, you guys need to pull your socks up big time.

It doesn't matter where you're born.

Even those born in Cyprus don't want to return back to Cyprus.

Cyprus is just seen as a holiday destination. They are not going to live there and leave their families, businesses, and work in Australia or anywhere else, to live in Cyprus with limited opportunities for anything. Even if you do get work, Cypriot pay rates are below poverty levels as well.

And for business, the market is too small and you can't access other countries in Asia or Middle East because you don't have any pull.

Cyprus third world country?.
The island has the best quality of life in the mediterranean, tied with Israel and far better than Malta, Italy or Portugal. Third world countries are Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico, TURKEY, african and islamic countries.

Quality of life does not mean sitting at a Cafe and spending 2 Euros for a coffee.

I'm sorry, but your quality of life doesn't compare.

Also education, low unemployment, low inflation, freedom of speech, etc.
And yes, Cyprus is a first word country.

Are you joking?

You are now going to compare unemployment, inflation, freedom of speech to Australia.

Pull the other one.

Having low unemployment (which isn't actually low in Cyprus) is different to having real career opportunities in cutting edge industries and manufacturing. You have nothing virtually.
