CYPRUS CELEBRATES 10 YEARS OF EU MEMBERSHIP

EU institutions have marked the 10th anniversary of the bloc’s biggest enlargement in recent history: on May 1, 2004, 10 new countries joined the EU, including Cyprus. EU enlargement commissioner Stefan Füle commented that this enlargement benefitted both the joining countries and the existing members states. Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades, has hailed the accession of Cyprus to the EU as being the most important achievement since the country’s independence in 1960. He further explained in an interview with the Cyprus News Agency: “Our membership in a family of developed and democratic states, gave us the opportunity both as a society and as a state to enter into a process of reforms and modernisation based on the EU acquis communautaire” The ten member states that joined the EU ten years ago are Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
