New trading platform

The Central Bank of Cyprus has announced its intention to establish a trading platform for bonds and treasury bills on the primary and secondary markets. The new trading platform will be known as MTS Cyprus and will be integrated with the EuroMTS programme.

The government's aim is to create a competitive and effective market with adequate liquidity in order to enable Cyprus government paper to compete on an equal footing in the euro market when Cyprus joins the Eurozone on January 1 2008. Government paper will also continue to be traded on the Cyprus Stock Exchange.
