The two countries have agreed on cooperating for the EUROPA system project, a high-capacity submarine cable that links Cyprus and Lebanon, and a share of transmission capacity on Cyta's ALEXANDROS cable subsystem, with landings in Cyprus, Egypt and France.
The EUROPA system will replace the ageing CADMOS cable and connect Lebanon and Cyrus to a high-quality alternative route. It will also bridge the IMEWE cable in Lebanon and ALEXANDROS in Cyprus. This new cable route will open up connectivity to Europe and enhance current connectivity between the ME and Europe.
EUROPA will also help scout new business opportunities in foreign markets, including opening the countries to the booming economic conditions in Asia.
