Digital Champion

The Digital Champion of Cyprus

Dr. Stelios Himonas is is the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism in Cyprus as well as Digital Champion. His main objective is to increase the internet penetration in the country.

"Forty 40% of Cyprus' population has never used the internet and the main reason is that they think they don't need it. We need to show people the benefits of the internet and to give them the opportunity to acquire the e-skills.  Another important step is to give internet access to everybody", said Mr Himonas.
