Market information

General

Cyprus today is firmly established as a reputable international business centre.
The Cyprus Economy is based on the free market system where the private sector is the base of all economic activities. The role of the government is to create a good healthy business environment by privatising all of its services. The Cyprus Economy has been transformed from a basic agricultural, underdeveloped one, into an economy with an open free market, a Westernised standard of living, a growing export-orientated light industrial sector, a modernised agricultural sector and an internationally important tourist centre.

The high external demand for Cypriot goods and services, along with the development of Cyprus into a commercial, financial and maritime centre and the performance of the
economy has been such that it has combined high real growth with low inflation and low unemployment. Despite the obvious difficulties, by the Turkish invasion, the
government together with the enterprising private sector, made the economic recovery of the island possible . The quality of life is better than that reflected by the per capita income alone, if one takes into consideration the excellent housing conditions, the pollutionfree environment and the low crime rate.
