(www.MaritimeCyprus.com) The new Minister of Transport, Communications and Works of the Republic of Cyprus is Mrs Vasiliki Anastasiadou. Mrs. Anastasiadou is currently the Secretary General of The House of Representatives. Naturally, she will also have the responsibility for the Cyprus Department of merchant Shipping.
Mrs. Anastasiadou was born in Nicosia in 1958 and has studied Law at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and LLM in European Union Law at the University of Leicester. She worked as a practicing attorney. In 1983 she was appointed Secretary of Parliamentary Committees at the Parliamentary Committees of the House of Representatives.
Through the years she ascended to all the ranks of the hierarchy of this service. In 1999, in addition to the post of First Secretary of Parliamentary Committees she was entrusted with the coordination of the extraordinary service of the House which undertook the task of harmonizing the Cypriot legislation with the acquis communautaire (the accumulated body of European Union (EU) law and obligations from 1958 to the present day).
In 2002 she was appointed Director of the newly created European Affairs Office of the Cyprus Parliament, where she worked for the successful completion of the alignment with the acquis communautaire until the accession of Cyprus to the European Union. In 2007 she was appointed Director of the Parliamentary Committees Service and in 2013 Secretary General of the House of Representatives.
We wish her all the best for her new endeavor.
