Cyprus Problem – Chambers of Commerce Agree

Chambers of Commerce on both sides of the island agree that a solution of the Cyprus problem will bring economic benefits to the whole island and in a joint statement said:

“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….it is our sincere conviction that the political talks should be supported and complemented through the active consultation of the business communities, the social partners and civil society on the island…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 stalemateinhibits the improvement of the present economic situation”

It is without a doubt that the north can benefit economically from a solution but is unclear how this applies to the south unless the island unifies and Greek Cypriots take control again. However, of course, this is not what Turkish Cypriots have in mind when they talk of a ‘solution’ to the Cyprus Problem.
