The International Funds Summit: Bridging the gap between Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, which takes place on May 29-31 at the GrandResort Hotel in Limassol will host expert speakers who will focus on the current EU regulatory framework, identify the latest global trends and opportunities, and highlight the advantages of Cyprus as an Investment Funds hub. The summit, organised by the Cyprus Investment Funds Association (CIFA), is being held under the auspices of the President of the Republic and the Cyprus Investment Promotion Agency (CIPA).
