In the first edition of our magazine will read stories from older and younger residents. Stories from the grandfather, the grandmother and aunt sulfur that will awaken memories. As for the name of the magazine comes from the word rose. Agros is renowned for its secondary products from the roses. So we came up with the choice of the name. Talking about our principles and our goals, one of the major reasons due to issue of the journal therefore is to support and promote local businesses and the creativity of villagers. oh, and one last thing!

My village is Agros which is located in the province of Limassol.It is a mountain village and has about 1000 permanent citizens.The village is located in the center of the Troodos Mountains near the Paputsa top. 45 minutes away from Nicosia and Limassol and 20 minutes from Troodos. The great church dedicated to the Virgin. At the back of the picture is written ¨ Virgin Great Agros ¨, where the village got its name. The villagers engaged in agriculture, animal husbandry, cold cuts and production coming from the rose like rosewater. Starting from Nicosia someone will
pass by Strovolos and Lakatamia, Anthoupoli Anafia, Arediou, Klerou, Apliki and Palaichori. It is notable that someone arrived at the village with the passing of the mighty Papoutsa top where to turn in front of the large fields pops.
The Nobelist Christopher Pissarides was born on February 20, 1948 and comes from Agros. He completed his studies in economics at the University of Essex in 1970 and his master’s degree next year. In 1973 he completed his doctorate at the London School of Economics. In 2010 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics for his contribution to the theory of search frictions and macroeconomics in collaboration with Peter A. Diamond and Dale T. Mortensen. Also, Christopher Pissarides was awarded for his contribution to research on the labor market. One of the studies published in 1994 was “Creation and
destruction work in the theory of unemployment”, in collaboration with Professor Dale T. Mortensen. Considering the progress and work, there is no doubt that Dr.. Christopher Pissarides make proud not only of the village but also the entire island with its successes and international distinctions. Mary Yannaki
