  • [01] Finance Minister expresses concerns over the establishment of solidarity fund

    Minister of Finance Harris Georgiades has said that there is a need for the government and the parliament to work in close cooperation and coordination in order for the legislation governing the creation of a solidarity fund to be better regulated.

    Finance Minister and Attorney General on Monday attended the meeting of the House Finance Committee which discussed the matter, after the President of the Republic referred the bill for the establishment of a solidarity fund passed by the House last December.

    The Minister explained that the government and the parliament decide through the state budget the amount that is used for various unemployment schemes and vulnerable groups, noting that there should be a detailed assessment for the purpose of the fund , adding that, he, as the Finance Minister can not be given a ‘blank check' to manage the solidarity fund. He also said that it is better for a committee to be established that will supervise the fund and manage the profits.

    [02] Cyprus, Greece and Malta to promote common interests within and outside EU

    Cyprus, Greece and Malta will intensify their cooperation to promote common interests both within and outside the EU, stated Monday Communications and Works Minister Tasos Mitsopoulos.

    The European Central Bank unveiled on Monday, in Frankfurt, the new €10 banknote which starts circulation on September 23 2014.

    It is further added that the design incorporates advances in banknote technology, making the note even more resistant to counterfeiting. It will also be more durable.

    [04] Registrar of Companies to operate electronically by March says President
