Cyprus: Short-term & long-term economic issues

HCC-OUSC July 2019 invitation

The economic development of Cyprus is reviewed through a personal prism shaped by experiences as an IMF economist for a period covering many years. The early short-term success is contrasted with the situation during and immediately following the impact of the 2008 global economic crisis. Although Cyprus has been recovering strongly, several problems linger possibly hindering a future sustainable development path. Several “big” ideas are collected and adapted to the Cypriot economic reality which might have the potential to help. The pros and cons are discussed setting the stage for further technical analysis and societal decisions.
The event is co-organised by the Harvard Club of Cyprus, the Oxford University of Cyprus, and the MBA Program of the University of Cyprus.
