Cyprus Chamber Discusses Green Line Trade with UN Envoy

In a recent meeting held at the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Keve) headquarters in Nicosia, Keve president Stavros Stavrou, along with the chamber’s executive committee, welcomed the UN Secretary-General’s envoy to Cyprus, Maria Angela Holguin Cuellar. The gathering focused on enhancing intercommunal trade and exploring its potential as a unifying force in the longstanding Cyprus problem.

The discussion centered on the regulation of green line trade, which has been a subject of both opportunities and challenges. Participants examined how the development of trade between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities could act as a catalyst for peace efforts. Stavrou emphasized Keve’s pivotal role as the state’s official economic and entrepreneurial advisor, highlighting the chamber’s commitment to fostering commercial and economic cooperation on equal terms.

Stavrou reiterated Keve’s unwavering support for such cooperation, noting its positive impact on creating a collaborative atmosphere conducive to resolving the Cyprus issue. This aligns with the resolutions and decisions of the UN Security Council, which remains the ultimate objective for all stakeholders.

In a statement released after the meeting, the chamber expressed confidence that economic collaboration between the two communities would contribute positively to the peace process. Furthermore, Stavrou assured Cuellar of Keve’s readiness to support both the government and the UN in their efforts to resume negotiations aimed at finding a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus problem.

The meeting underscores the importance of economic ties in bridging divides and building trust between communities. As commercial and economic activities continue to intertwine the interests of both sides, there is a growing sense of optimism that these efforts could pave the way for a peaceful and prosperous future for Cyprus.
