Nicosia, Sep 14 (CNA) --- Cypriot European Union Commissioner for Health and Consumer Protection Markos Kyprianou will pay an official visit to Cyprus September 15-16.

During his visit, Kyprianou will hold meetings with Cypriot Ministers and will present the ''Europa Diary'', which is an EU-wide effort to inform young people of their rights, increase their awareness and enable them to make more informed decisions as consumers.

On Thursday the Cypriot Commissioner will hold two separate meetings with Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment Efthymios Efthymiou and Minister of Health Andreas Gavrielides.

On Friday Kyprianou will present the ''Europa Diary'' during a ceremony at Apostolos Varnavas Lyceum in Nicosia at the presence of the Minister of Education and Culture Pefkios Georgiades.

The ''Europa Diary'' covers topics such as smoking, healthy eating and physical activity, labelling of products and e-commerce.

It is aimed at students between the ages of 15 and 18 and has been distributed at no cost among schools all over the EU together with a teacher's kit to provide an additional teaching resource.
