18 October 2013

The Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce and the South Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry have issued a joint statement which says that a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus problem will benefit all sectors of the economy and as a result will improve the welfare and prosperity of all Cypriots.

“The Cyprus problem can no longer be left unresolved as this situation benefits neither the Greek Cypriots nor the Turkish Cypriots. Therefore, we urge both leaders to intensify their efforts to reach a fair and sustainable solution as soon as possible,” the statement notes.

“The two Chambers express their commitment to contribute to the process and are ready to support the efforts of the political leadership. A comprehensive solution will bring economic benefits to both communities while the continuation of the existing stalemate inhibits the improvement of the present economic situation”, the statement concludes.
