The Economic Organisations Platform on Wednesday called for support from Turkey to help overcome the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the TRNC economy.

The Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce, the Cyprus Turkish Chamber of Industry, the Cyprus Turkish Hoteliers’ Association and the Cyprus Turkish Contractors’ Association which make up the Economic Organisations Platform said that the support to be given by the Republic of Turkish to the TRNC government was of vital importance.

Releasing a statement, the platform expressed the belief that the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the Turkish Cypriot people will be able to overcome the current difficulties by working in cooperation with Turkey.

The platform also expressed the view that the TRNC would greatly benefit if the government was to announce a similar package to the Economic Stability Shield Package announced by Turkey.

It also noted that the platform’s main aim is for the continuation of business and employment.

“Turkey will continue to support the TRNC as it has always done and will not allow people to become unemployed during these hard times,” the platform said.
