The Economist Events present their 3rd annual event, entitled “Cyprus: Interweaving extroversion with aspiration”.

Nevertheless, the Cypriot banking system is still facing a high ratio of NPLs, while the energy exploration process in the region has recently triggered geopolitical tension, in relation to Turkey’s claims. A major challenge is also Brexit and its implications with regards to the UK-EU relations.
