Business

The separation of Cyprus (1974) into a Turkish northern part and a Greek southern part severely impaired overall economic development. The gross domestic product rose in the south of the country(GDP) 1975–2000, however, rose rapidly by an average of 5.5% per year. In 2004 the Greek-Cypriot part was accepted into the EU, since January 1, 2008 the euro has been legal tender here. Cyprus developed into an important financial service provider at the interface between Europe and the Middle East. The euro crisis and the close ties with the Greek banking sector as well as the concentration on financial and business services led Cyprus into a severe economic crisis from 2009 onwards. The budget deficit rose to 5.4% of GDP by 2013 and the national debt to 111.7% of GDP. In 2013 the gross domestic product experienced negative growth of 5.4%, so that Cyprus had to apply for international financial aid. In 2015, economic growth was again low, at 1.6%. That Gross National Income (GNI) per resident was US $ 23,720 in 2017.

In contrast, the northern part of Turkey is dependent on aid from Turkey due to a lack of industrialization and a blatantly high foreign trade deficit. In 2014, there were exports worth only 1.7 million US $, while imports were worth 120.7 million US $. The GNI per capita in the northern part of Cyprus (2014) was US $ 15,300.

Foreign trade: The foreign trade deficit in the Greek Cypriot part of the country has grown steadily since 1975 (2015: € 5.0 billion imports; € 1.6 billion exports). The main export goods are chemical products, foodstuffs, raw materials and electronic products. The main trading partners are Greece, Great Britain, Israel, Italy and Germany. In the case of Turkish Cypriot export goods, food, especially citrus fruits, is the single most important item. Turkey and Great Britain are the dominant trading partners.

Agriculture

The importance of agriculture is even higher in the Turkish north than in the Greek south. The most important crops are potatoes, wheat, barley and citrus fruits, in the southern part of the country also grapes on a vineyard area of ​​15,000 hectares. While cereals are mainly grown in the Mesaoria, the central plain, the citrus crops are concentrated in the Morphu regions on the north coast and Limassol on the south coast. Most of the vineyards are in the southern and eastern Troodos foothills. Overall, smallholders predominate.

Wine from Cyprus

“Let the grapes lie in the sun for ten days, then five days in the shade and then another eight days in the jar.” This is how the Greek poet Hesiod described around 700 BC. The production of wine in Cyprus. The island is one of the oldest wine-growing regions in the world, and not only the ancient poets praised the sweetness of this wine, the Crusaders also valued it. Allegedly, after his expedition to Cyprus in 1191, Richard the Lionheart wanted to return to the island just to drink wine there.

After the Order of St. John had lost its last bastion in Palestine with Akko in 1291, it relocated its headquarters to Cyprus for a short time and devoted itself to viticulture there, among other things. The grand coming Kolossi of the order maintained the best wineries in the southern Troodos Mountains. The wine of the monastic estates was named “Commandaria” after the term Coming. It is a sweet aperitif and dessert wine with an alcohol content of around 15%. Hesiod’s recipe is still valid today for the production: The grapes for the Commandaria lie in the sun for two weeks in order to achieve a high sugar concentration. After fermentation, the wine matures for two years in old oak barrels, which are never completely emptied, so that old wine mixes with new wine again and again.

The European princes valued the wine from Cyprus, it was considered a symbol of quality of life, culture and aristocracy. Today the Commandaria is the only wine in Cyprus that has been awarded the title “Appellation contrôlée”.

Service sector

While agriculture and mining were still the most important economic sectors at the beginning of Cyprus’ state independence in 1960, today the service sector makes the most important contribution to the gross domestic product (share in 2014: 87.1%). This sector includes not only tourism, but also financial services, real estate, trade, healthcare, administration and education. Around 80% of the labor force finds employment in the tertiary sector. With the restructuring of the bloated banking sector (2013 closure of the Cyprus Popular Bank, formerly Laiki), however, unemployment rose to (2015) 15.3% and the already limited domestic market experienced a collapse.

Tourism: In the Greek Cypriot part of the country, tourism is the most important source of foreign currency. In 2015, 2.7 million foreign visitors came here, mainly from Great Britain, Russia, Germany, Greece and Sweden. Revenues in 2015 amounted to around € 2.11 billion. After the division of the island and the associated loss of the hotel zone of Famagusta, the cities of Limassol and Larnaka were initially the most important tourist centers, but now the south-east coast in the Agia Napa / Pavalimni area and the western coast in the Paphos / Polis area have become preferred locations of hotels and hotel apartments of high standards. Check sportsqna to see Cyprus Sunny Holiday Destination.

The excavations of Neolithic and ancient sites also located in the coastal area (Kouklia, Kurio, Amathounda, Kirokitia [in the south] and Salamis, Soli or Vouni) as well as the mountains (Troodos, Pitsilia or Northern Range) are increasingly popular as hiking areas. and the monasteries located there (Kykkos, Trooditissa, Stavrovouni, Machaira) and Byzantine churches (e.g. Asinou) are easily accessible. Despite a lack of international recognition, tourism is also an important economic factor in the Turkish Cypriot part of the country. Since no international airlines land here, the sea connections to Turkey have been improved.
