CYPRUS CHINA NETWORK
The CYPRUS CHINA NETWORK PLATFORM – www.ccnnetwork.cn – (CHINESE & ENGLISH) was established in 2016, and registered in 2017, to help enhance the relations between The People’s Republic of China and Cyprus/EU in the areas of trade, tourism, education, medicinal remedies, culture, and the revival of the Silk Road.
Its first activity was CCN RADIO/TV broadcasting over the internet – with Chinese content broadcasting globally – and it is available for global broadcasting through numerous Global platforms such us:

CCN TV broadcasts Chinese hits of modern Repertoire, News, Business Tips, Travel Information and Investment Opportunities, and films/movies that promote intercultural understanding. It also has online the latest Chinese and international news. It is important to note that CCN has recently unveiled its APPLICATION FOR ANDROIDS AND IPHONES in order to facilitate access to its platforms by mobile phone users. In addition to serving as a GUIDE for Chinese visitors of Cyprus, this Application allows Chinese speaking mobile users to access useful information, News and Entertainment on their smart phones.
CCNRADIO/TV has collaborations with many mass media organizations, including the CHINA EMBASSY, THE CONFUCIUS INSTITUTE, THE OFFICIAL CHINESE XINHUA NEWS AGENCY, CNA CYPRUS NEWS AGENCY, THE CHINESE FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION, THE CYPRUS-CHINA ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL PROMOTION ASSOCIATION, AND THE CYPRUS-CHINA FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION, AMONG OTHERS.
The official opening of the CCN PLATFORM www.ccnnetwork.cn was conducted by His Excellency the AMBASSADOR OF CHINA in Cyprus, and was attended by the Commercial Attaché and other officials. Moreover, the interview of His Excellency the Ambassador of China during the opening ceremony has been officially placed on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, an action that indicates the official support of the Chinese Government to our service.
In recognition of the efforts and objectives of the CCN PLATFORM www.ccnnetwork.cn , the Economic and Commercial Counsellor of the Embassy of China in Cyprus, honoured CCN in a special ceremony.
CCN will promote travel and tourism between the two nations and between China and Europe in collaboration with a leading travel agency in China and with an online booking platform. Moreover, it will promote the two nations through its own APPLICATION FOR ANDROIDS AND IPHONES which will include specific information that is normally needed by tourists (such as sites, maps, restaurants, hotels logistics, as well as music, news, TV, culture, history).
In terms of advertising/promotion, CCN will follow a very selective approach: it will allow only serious and dependable firms to advertise, and will include only a select few firms in each particular area of business with a threefold purpose: to give exclusivity to those that seek quality publicity; to meet the criteria of dependable/honest promotion; and to avoid overcrowding its space. These firms will be promoted via special ads, short film presentations, and through subscription networks of which CCN will be a member.
CCN has ambitious plans in the field of Education: The creation of an educational hub in Cyprus and China to allow for educational curricular and training courses in Europe, China and the US. Short courses would encompass training in professional fields, learning English (for Chinese) and Chinese (for Europeans), entering STEM programs, learning leadership skills, attending sports academies, and completing Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Ph.D. degrees in Cyprus, Europe and the United States. All these in cooperation with leading Prep Academies and Universities in Cyprus, the UK, and the U.S.
CCN’s aim in this area, is to create virtual Business to Business and Business to Customer platforms at which rigorously selected Chinese companies would become members and gear their products to the Cypriot and EU markets.
CCN is facilitating the development of the increasingly popular traditional Chinese medicinal practices in Cyprus and the EU through its investment in infrastructure (distribution systems, promotion, agreements with point of sale establishments) and its sourcing efforts, in order, on the one hand, to offer a service to the public and, on the other hand, to avoid tarnishing the positive outlook that this health practice enjoys.
CCN AND THE SILK ROAD:
CCN, in collaboration with various forums within the People’s Republic of China, is actively promoting the revival of the Silk Road, and the idea of “one road, one zone.” The purpose of this ambitious new initiative is multi-faceted: it aims to expand trade, productivity and tourism, and to improve the standard of living of the people. It also aims to promote friendship and to advance culture and civilization between China and Cyprus/EU.
Given the level of investment CCN has undertaken and will continue to undertake in technology, infrastructure, human capital, and immovable assets, we estimate that CCN will provide significant returns to its investors and help promote the cultural, political, economic and social ties between China and Europe.
