Cyprus Minister Sets Out Liberalisation Programme, by Lorys Charalambous
The Cyprus government has predicted imminent telecoms liberalisation so many times that people have stopped believing in it; but in an interview last week with the Financial Mirror, Minister for Transport, Communications and Works, Averof Neophytou said that all necessary legislation regarding liberalisation had been passed by parliament and the liberalisation of telecommunications, postal services and air transport will go ahead as planned on or before January 1, 2003.The first step for telecoms liberalisation, said the Minister, will be the sale of additional mobile phone licences.So far, a number of companies had expressed interest but no formal bids had been made.Mr Neophytou said that policy on new licences would be announced in mid-June and that tenders would take place in October."How many licences will be given and how we will proceed with the tenders - if we are going to give third generation (3G) licences together with GSM - these are decisions that have to be finalised by the middle of June,"
