Cyprus Overview

Natural resources

The pyrite mining, which was already in prehistoric times, was discontinued due to exhaustion of the deposits and the asbestos mining was also given up. Copper mining, which once established the island’s wealth, only delivered 3,088 t in 2014. Great hopes were placed in the natural gas deposits discovered off the south coast in 2011, which, however, had to be put into perspective after closer investigations.

Energy industry

The energy industry is dependent on the import of crude oil (2015: 21.8% of total imports). The damage that occurred in 2011 to the largest power station in Cyprus near Limassol, triggered by an explosion at a nearby naval base, led to power outages for weeks and put a heavy burden on the economy; the power plant has only been in full production again since mid-2013.

Industry

The manufacturing sector contributed 10.6% to the creation of GDP (2014) and provided 16% of the workforce in the southern part of the country with employment. Before the division, manufacturing was concentrated in the cities of Nicosia and Famagusta, which are now in the Turkish Cypriot part of the country. In the Greek Cypriot part, the port cities of Limassol and Larnaka are the main commercial locations. The most important sectors there are the food industry, building materials industry, wood processing and the pharmaceutical industry.

Transportation

The road network separated by the demarcation line is only linked in a few places. In the Greek Cypriot part, around 66% of the 13,000 (Northern Cyprus: 58% of the 7,000) kilometers of road are paved. There are no railroads. Before the division, Famagusta was the island’s main port. The port cities of Limassol and Larnaka on the south coast have now taken on this role. In the Turkish Cypriot part, besides Famagusta, the port city of Girne (Kyrenia) on the north coast should be mentioned, which is especially important for ferry traffic to Turkey. More than half of the 1 210 merchant ships registered in Cyprus with a total of 21.4 million GT operate under flags of convenience. Nicosia International Airport, which was a main approach point in the eastern Mediterranean until the partition, has been closed since 1974.

Ancient and Byzantine times

Since the end of the 8th century BC The Cypriot city kings became dependent on Assyria, Egypt (mid-6th century) and Persia. Only King Euagoras I of Salamis (411–374 BC) was able to mediate between the great powers and strengthen his own position for about 20 years. Finally, the annexation of Cyprus to the Macedonian Empire of Alexander the Great (332 BC) secured the independence of all city princes of Persia.

In the controversy over the succession of Alexander the Great, Cyprus fell in 294 BC. To Ptolemaic Egypt. The center of the only in the 2nd / 1st Century BC Completely Hellenized island was on the south coast, originally in Palaipaphos, which around 300 BC. Was moved to the northwest (Neapaphos, Paphos).

In the course of the rise to the Mediterranean power, Rome annexed 58 BC. BC Cyprus, the 27 BC Imperial, 22 BC. Became a senatorial province. Under Roman rule the island’s economic development reached a high point; 45 AD Cyprus became through the missionary trip of the apostle Paul and his companion Barnabas (who came from Cyprus) to one of the first Christian mission areas. The Jews of Cyprus were killed or abducted after revolts against Roman rule between 115 and 117. By 325 Cyprus already had three episcopal seats. After the division of the Roman Empire (395), Cyprus belonged to the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire. Salamis became the provincial capital and ecclesiastical metropolis of Constantia. The autocephaly of the Cypriot Church has been recognized since the Council of Ephesus (431). In 649, Arab-Islamic naval expeditions began against the island, which served as the Byzantine border bastion. Byzantium was not able to consolidate its rule again until 965.
