Petrides: EC's Spring Economic Forecasts Aline With Government's Estimates

European Commission’s spring economic forecasts are largely in line with the government’s estimates and confirm the correctness of its support measures that have been taken for the employees and businesses, Finance Minister Constantinos Petrides has said, according to a CNA report.


In a written statement, Minister says that the Commission also confirms that the crisis has not yet passed and that the recovery will be difficult and uncertain as uncertain is also the development of the pandemic and the efforts to find the vaccine, which is directly related to the economic consequences.


While the impact of the pandemic on unemployment and business are expected to become apparent by the end of 2021, it becomes necessary to continue a sound and prudent management of economic policy at the national level, he said.


He also noted that the need for the rapid implementation of the single European recovery plan becomes more urgent than ever, adding that the implementation of the plan should be the primary priority of Europe at the moment, which is something that Cyprus will insist on at the level of European institutions in the near future.


He also notes that the European Commission’s spring forecasts show the severe blow that the pandemic is causing to the European economy, downgrading economic forecasts for 2020 and 2021.


According to the European Commission, the European economy has been hit hardest by what was initially expected, while the Eurozone in 2020 will have a deep recession of 8.7%, namely  1 percentage point more compared to the forecast of May, the Minister said.


The Commission forecasts a 7.7% recession for Cyprus, which is 0.3% higher compared to the forecast in May.
