Cyprus car market in the 2014 has broken the five years decline with a shy recovery on the previous year. The market stands at almost low-level, one-third below the 2008 volume. Toyota become market leader outpacing Nissan.
Cyprus is far more than a lazy beach-time resort; the island is multilayered, like its history, with a compelling culture, lifestyle and landscape, overseen by warm, hospitable people.
Cyprus emerged from recession in Q1 and the pace of recovery strengthened in Q2.
The economy grew 1.2% annually in Q2, which marks the largest expansion in over four years and suggests that harsh reforms are beginning to bear results.
In August, the Cabinet approved legislation which brings the privatizing of the telecom provider CyTA one step closer. The approval of the bill forms part of the requirements of Cyprus’ bailout program with its international creditors.
