Speech by the Deputy Minister to the President of the Republic at the 5th Economic Congress

Allow me first of all to thank the organizers for their kind invitation. It is a pleasure and an honor to join such an impressive list of speakers. ‘How to redevelop the Growth Model for Cyprus’. - That is the theme of the speech I was asked to deliver. I would, on my behalf, make one addition. The question is how to redevelop the Growth Model for Cyprus in order to achieve sustainable growth. Because this is the only kind of Growth that creates – through productive jobs and higher incomes - lasting prosperity. As opposed to bubble-led growth, which creates public and private over-consumption, usually through private and public borrowing, and creates short-term but temporary and artificial increase of incomes and prosperity. It subsequently brings inevitable disaster to the economy and society when the decades-old bubble bursts. And this is partly what happened to Cyprus. After a couple of decades of being one of the most dynamic and fastest growing economies in Europe, by 2013, we were faced with an unprecedented crisis. -21.05.2015

Welcome address by the President of the House of Representatives at the 5th Nicosia Economic Congress

Welcome address by the President of the House of Representatives at the 5th Nicosia Economic CongressI would like to thank the organisers, Gold Magazine and the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Cyprus, for the opportunity offered to me to be here today and, in turn to welcome you all to this important event, the fifth Nicosia Economic Congress. Today’s Economic Congress takes place at what I consider a turning point for the Cyprus economy. After the shock suffered by the unprecedent decision of the Eurogroup back in March 2013, imposing impairment on bank deposits, fiscal indicators show that the Cyprus economy is stabilising. However a lot of challenges lie ahead, such as reducing the unemployment rate, non-performing loans and putting the economy back on to a sustainable growth track. After the Cyprus Gross Domestic Product lost more than 10%, in the last three years, the minimal growth recorded during the first quarter of 2015, for the first time since the second quarter of 2011, is just a positive sign. -21.05.2015
