Cyprus must put its hope on unification

Commenting on the European Parliament's discussion regarding the recent Cypriot crisis, Reinhard Bütikofer, EGP Co-Chair, said: “In order to regain economic attractiveness and invite new investments and to create a new dynamic, Cyprus will have to open a new page by putting the unification of the Island on the short-term agenda. The European institutions must develop a strategy to help Cyprus in this regard.

“The bailout strategy that has been agreed between the Cypriot government and the Eurozone leaders will, without any doubt, put a very heavy burden on the Cypriot people. Predictions regarding a future economic upturn in Cyprus that are currently being peddled are unrealistically optimistic. The experience is going to be a dire one, and not just for a short time.

"The challenge is huge, but only by setting this very high bar and looking towards unification, will it be possible to muster the energy that is necessary to overcome the island's very deep crisis."
