You could try an Indian restaurant that "doesn't" sell English Roast Beef Dinners, whilst being entertained by Elvis.



I really never understood the above concept............

How about a shop selling silencers for Quad Bikes and Motor Bikes,



Oh and maybe a formula to stop dogs barking at night. ( I'll have a gross)



Or an English Bar that does Sunday Lunch would make a nice change.



Also I beleive there is a need for some sort of machine to sort the rubbish before the locals dump it at the picnic areas and beaches.



We have had some mixups recently with old car batteries and Efes bottles being taken to the wrong beaches.

A bit cynical for you Lee, but very true, especially the reference to quad bikes! That would certainly be an asset to TRNC.

Sorry hattikins, I was only having a laugh with the rest of the guys and martinD41 made me giggle so I thought I'd put my two penneth in.



I think I'm starting to get like my dad, when I was a kid we lived on council estate in Dudley and the lads with bikes used to bamage their silencers, so that their bikes used to make as much noise as possible.



My dad had an expession that he always used to use, and now I find myself saying it.



It goes like this. He wants that B----y thing shoving up his A--e and revving up, and Im just the bloke to do it.



Sorry to go off Topic and Abdul good luck with your venture.

Try a shop fitting/signwriting business - there are so many businesses that fold after a few months, your services would always be in demand

A mobile car cleaning company working on contract so that people can have their car cleaned whilst they are working, and don't have to wait around for an hour or so each time (OK, so i know I can do it myself!!). You might have to nippy to finish the car before those at the Ministries finish though

You need people to spend money to run a successful business, i.e make a profit. Therein lies the problem. Most people here only spend money on eating and drinking. Some would go on holiday but most would probably fly home once or twice a year. Some have very little spare capital to spend.



I would say invest in a business that offers some form of entertainment.

Msg. 1 and Msg 9. What we need is a company that will go around and take down the signs when a place goes bust, We have signs up in Alsancak for shops that closed 3 years ago or more, but the signs still litter the place up on the side of the roads. Offer your services to the local Belly Msg.1, they could certainly do with someone!!

Two businesses that I have always thought would work out here:

1: Open air drive in cinema.

2: Open air car auction/sales.

Import some decent coal/smokeless fuel so we can burn something other than underweight, poor quality logs.

Why don't you try importing & re-selling this stuff?

Any enterprising shop-owners out there? You'd be able to sell this stuff as fast as you could import it!



Please let me know if there is anyone out there with this in stock!

message 19 Definition:



Ecotourism is: "Responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people."



From Google - lots more info there - just search.



It would mean, for instance, being able to take tourists to a natural beach with a cafe selling local food made by local people - not a concrete platform full of umbrellas and either an expensive resteraunt or hamburgers and chips!



And a country that made efforts to keep its character and preserve its natural resources and beauties - not cover it with estates of villas with water and electricty consuming swimming pools! Not to mention permitting too many large cars to drive too fast on roads designed for a donkey and cart!



I think you have missed the chance by about l0 years!



There was a time when people realised that North Cyprus had the largest areas of unspoilt coastline in the Med. area and tried to introduce environmental friendly touristm cn.......

Unfortunately it was discovered there was a faster buck to be made by selling (often substandard) so called "villas" to unsuspecting expats!



On way that might still be possible would be to introduce pony trecking (possibly also s using feral donkeys) into the areas still not easily accessible for motor vehicles.

Seems "sign making" is the business here. There's always business's closing and re-opening so you can't loose!
