In his speech, Mr. Eliades also mentioned that the Bank of Cyprus, as an organisation with a vision and leader not only in financial affairs but also in the implementation of the latest technological evolutions, walks hand in hand with the new generation, which is synonymous to growth and technology.

Lastly, the Managing Director of the Group thanked the children from Rizokarpaso by pointing out that "It would be an omission on my part not to particularly refer to the presence of the children from Rizokarpaso, of these young people who unwittingly carry on their shoulders the burdens of yesterday and today, of these young people who survive under difficult circumstances, giving us lessons of life and patriotism».

The event ended with the presentation of Myrtani Pieri, winner of the Famelab Pan-European Competition and with a music programme by Loukas Yiorkas.
