Stelios Philanthropic Foundation presents annual awards

The Stelios Philanthropic Foundation, created by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou (photo), the founder of easyJet and easyGroup, on Monday in Limassol, Cyprus, presented another five Cypriot companies with prizes of 50,000 euros each in cash for their excellence in their field of expertise.

All 20 enterprises to have collected a total of 1 million euros since 2009 have been set up by at least one Greek Cypriot and one Turkish Cypriot, and this year?s winners ranged from pastry makers to business consultants.

?What politicians have failed to achieve, entrepreneurs have managed to do by themselves,? Haji-Ioannou commented.
