    Arrivals at Limassol Port were down, just as it was predicted, Communications and Works Minister Nicos Nicolaides said during a visit to Limassol Port on Monday.

    He repeated that governments efforts are underway to support tourism during the economic crisis. Regarding arrivals at Limassol Port, Nicolaides said that these are down, just as it was expected.
