Cyprus GDP Growth Eases to 2.1% in Q4 from Previous Year

Cyprus Sees Steady Economic Growth with 2.1% GDP Increase in Q4

The latest data from the Cyprus Statistical Service (CyStat) reveals that the Cypriot economy has maintained a steady pace of growth, with a 2.1% increase in GDP during the fourth quarter of 2023. This figure represents a slight dip from the 2.3% growth recorded in the same period of the previous year but continues to reflect the country’s resilient economic performance.

The year 2023 witnessed a fluctuating growth trajectory, with the third quarter marking a peak at 2.6%, followed by a modest slowdown to 2.2% in the second quarter, and starting off with a robust 3% in the first quarter. Despite these variations, the overall trend indicates sustained expansion within the Cypriot economy.

CyStat’s flash estimate, released on Wednesday, also highlighted that when adjusted for seasonal and working day variations, the GDP growth rate stands at an encouraging 2.3%. This adjustment provides a more accurate picture of the economy’s health by accounting for periodic fluctuations and standardizing the data across time periods.

The positive momentum in Cyprus’s GDP is largely driven by several key sectors that have shown remarkable resilience and growth. Notably, “Hotels and Restaurants” and “Transport and Storage” sectors have been significant contributors, alongside “Wholesale and Retail Trade, Repair of Motor Vehicles”, “Information and Communication”, “Construction”, “Arts, Entertainment and Recreation”, and “Other Service Activities”.

This diversified growth underscores the dynamic nature of the Cypriot economy, which continues to adapt and thrive despite global economic challenges. The sustained performance of these sectors is indicative of Cyprus’s strategic efforts to bolster its economic foundations and enhance its competitive edge in various industries.

As Cyprus looks ahead, the latest GDP figures offer a reassuring sign of stability and progress. With careful economic management and continued investment in key sectors, Cyprus is poised to maintain its growth trajectory and strengthen its position as a vibrant economy in the Mediterranean region.
