Boost in Green Line trade could help reunification

The overall scale of trade across the Green Line in Cyprus remains at a low level, the European Commission said in its eleventh report on the implementation of the Green Line regulation released on Tuesday.

According to a press release issued by the Commission, the report noted that in 2014 the crossings of persons across the Line increased by 17%, something which is described as a positive development.

As it is noted, controls at the crossing points by the authorities of the Republic of Cyprus have been evaluated as satisfactory. It is added that irregular migration across the Green Line continued to decrease slightly in relation to the overall European trend.

According to the report, in 2014, the value of trade across the Line reached approximately 3.5 million euro, compared to 3.4 euro in 2013. However, the Commission continues to be concerned that trade is at a low level and notes that it will continue to seek ways to boost trade across the Green Line, given the fact that it can play a positive role in reunification.
