Ref: 061 2012

On 16 October, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), in cooperation with the Republic of Cyprus, held a conference in Nicosia on restoring stability, trust and confidence in Europe. The President of the EESC, Staffan Nilsson, exchanged views on the future economic, political and social model for Europe with Titos Christofides, Under-Secretary to the President of the Republic of Cyprus, and Sotiroula Charalambous, Minister of Labour and Social Insurance. Then, representatives of the EESC and Cypriot civil society discussed the way out of the economic crisis and the role of civil society.

After the extraordinary Bureau meeting of the EESC in the country holding the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Dr Titos Cristofides, Under-Secretary to the President of the Republic of Cyprus, welcomed the participants to the debate on restoring stability and trust in Europe. He explained that the Republic of Cyprus advocated a new strategy to tackle the crisis that went beyond austerity and implemented a pact for growth and employment. To make this possible, solidarity was urgently needed. The Minister of Labour and Social Insurance of the Republic of Cyprus reinforced this view, recalling the importance of social cohesion and inclusive growth
