Limassol is taking action to encourage a diverse workforce, intercultural mixing and competence in the private sector enterprises. The city has developed a local "diversity for business" project with the participation of numerous employers, associations, the chamber of commerce, trade unions, youth NGOs and universities. A series of focus-group meetings produced the Intercultural Twinning Declaration of the Municipalities of Limassol and Ioannina, dedicated to the role of cultural diversity for inclusive growth. The “diversity for business” project also made possible the creation of the Greek version of the Intercultural Cities Step-by-step guide.
Limassol takes action to encourage businesses from ethnic minorities to move beyond the ethnic economy and enter the mainstream economy and other higher value-added sectors. The city also encourages migrants from a lower income background to move into entrepreneurship through various activities funded by EU grants, including training and business incubators. The city for example organised a training course on Online Marketing in 2018 together with the neighbouring Municipality of Agios Athanasios.
Additionally, Limassol is the headquarter of the national Cyprus International Business Association (CIBA), and the city administration has strong connections to the association and similar structures.
