“The contribution of the real estate sector to the Cypriot economy is exceptionally significant,” he added.

Moreover, Kineyirou said that “property owners are called upon to rationalise their prices, while, at the same time, the government, through its policies, is urged to ensure the sector’s sustainability”.
