Statements by the Acting President of the Republic after the European Council’s deliberations

The Acting President of the Republic, President of the House of Representatives, Mr Yiannakis L. Omirou, speaking after the European Council’s deliberations, yesterday in Brussels, made the following statements to the press: “The Summit of the European Council concluded. I would like to express my satisfaction with both the debates which took place and the final conclusions. The big issue of the meeting was Junker’s proposal on investments. After a long period of time, which involved policies for structural reform and fiscal consolidation, the European Council decided to proceed by adopting an investment framework, able to pave the way for growth and jobs in Europe. We, on behalf of the Republic of Cyprus, strongly supported this proposal and, of course, we highlighted that this framework should be balanced amongst the regions to ensure conditions of social and economic cohesion, and generally, policy cohesion. Namely, through this investment programme, the gaps observed should be covered, especially between North and South. We also suggested - and this is the position of the European Council – that the new European Fund for Strategic Investments should be managed by the European Investment Bank. - 19.12.2014
