It truly is an honour to be cooperating with such a reputable organisation, and we believe that we can both learn from one another. Furthermore, DP World’s sustainability strategy will continue to build on our success of providing opportunities for students through our industry, whilst expanding our focus areas to include three additional themes – access to education, skills for the future and industry exposure”.

Our University attaches great importance to extroversion and the effective interconnection of its study programmes with the industry and the labor market. These two issues consist one of the main pillars of the CUT’s strategic development planning. I am confident that today’s agreement paves the way for joint actions and sets out the framework forenhanced cooperation between our organizations for the benefit of the Cypriot economy and society”.
