In the past three months, we have experienced an unprecedented crisis on a global scale as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic with lockdown measures imposed progressively, on all the countries. Cyprus was of course no exception. Nevertheless, our country’s success, to date, in dealing with this health crisis accompanied by the implementation of robust fiscal package allows us to emerge from the widespread lockdown with growing confidence. The economic activity indicators that we are daily monitoring are a solid proof of that.
