Harbor


The construction of a modern harbour for Famagusta in 1932 was an important factor in the promotion and development of the city and contributed to a surge in its economic activity. The expansion and deepening of the harbour, completed in 1965 solidified Famagusta 's position that became dominant in terms of the flow of merchandise coming in and out of the island. In 1973 the harbour of Famagusta accounted for 88,9% of all imports and 73,6% of all exports on the island. Naturally, the dynamism of the harbour attracted many maritime and customs offices that settled in Famagusta , offering significant employment opportunities.
