Cyprus Business Forecast Report Q1 2015, New Report Launched

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Cyprus Business Forecast Report Q1 2015” research report to their offering.


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- Cyprus is past the worst of its brutal recession. Nonetheless, we do not forecast annual economic expansion until 2016, as credit growth remains impaired, public austerity deepens, and the internal devaluation process keeps a lid on nominal and real wages. Although the Cypriot government's fiscal consolidation plan has begun to bear fruit, with a reduced deficit, a budget surplus is unlikely to be posted anytime soon.

With slow economic growth ahead and chronic budget deficits, Cyprus's debt sustainability may again be called into question at some point in the next few years. Talks to reunify the island have regained some momentum in the past year. While both sides of the dispute still appear to be far apart on the terms of any potential settlement, we believe that negotiations on the 40-year-old 'Cyprus problem' are reaching a crucial phase.

Major Forecast Changes

We have raised our 2015 real GDP growth forecast to 0.0% from -0.2%.
