European Investment Bank: €230 million for investments in Cyprus in 2019
The Bank of Cyprus and Hellenic Bank will sell loans, worth €4 billion in total, according to the Governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus (CBC), Constantinos Herodotou. Herodotou noted that non-performing loans (NPLs) have not changed much during the last few months and called on the Cypriot banks to step up their efforts to further reduce them. The Governor said that Cypriot banks may have reduced their NPS by €19 billion since their peak in December 2014 but ‘there is still work to be done,’ as Cyprus’ NPL ratio stands at 30% compared to the Eurozone average of 3%.

Architecture & Design
Interview with Philippe Starck: “I Spent a Lifetime on Depriving Design Elitism”
Architecture is an exciting journey through the fantasy land with Grand Finale. It starts somewhere between a dream and the will to realise it – a desire to explore the mirage, to build it and to touch it. Firstly, comes an idea, very unclear at first and unexpected, like the sound of thunder. Because it appears so quickly, your brain cannot determine whether it is simply a delusion or not. Natural instinct alerts you to listen to the idea and judge its behavior. All circulating thoughts, borne in the essence of invention become notes and compose an extraordinary symphony expressed by the balance held within – the harmony of shapes, colors, numbers and engineering bonded tightly by the strong power of creation. This special marriage of art and science gives definition to empty spaces by creating surfaces and gives these spaces special functions to loyally serve the needs of humanity, as we live in a world governed by our requirements.
