Delegations from shopkeepers unions on both sides of the divide have decided to set up a committee to further business collaboration between them.
The delegations from the Greek Cypriot union POVEK met on Tuesday night with representatives of KTEZO, the Turkish Cypriot union in Nicosia’s old town.
According to a statement on Wednesday, they exchanged views and proposals for the further development of relations.
They decided to establish a joint committee and agreed a common framework of specific measures and actions to assist both in efforts for a Cyprus solution and to boost business collaboration between them.
“The common vision of both organisations remains a peaceful and just solution to the Cyprus problem, which will reunite the people as a whole and aid the economy and business in a European environment,” the statement said.
