  • Cyprus is emerging from a prolonged recession. Regardless, the economy will continue to be challenged by a weak external environment, public sector austerity, competitive pressures on wages and disposable income, and high levels of non-performing loans in the banking sector.

  • Negotiations between Greek and Turkish Cypriots on the 40-year-old 'Cyprus problem' are reaching a crucial phase. The odds of a deal to reunify the island are higher now than they have been since the last major peace effort ended in 2004.
