    New optic fiber-cables to keep up with data and telecomunnication developments.

    The yellow-line is the current active line with 4 cables.
    The red-line will be the new line with 24 cables.

    Renewal of North-Cyprus' data-infrastructure will cost 2,2 Billion TL ( 1,2 Billion DOLLAR)

    Still, even with Turkey's help, North Cyprus is an impoverished dilapidated backwater, a drain on the Turkish economy and a thorn in Turkey's diplomatic ass. Good luck with that.

    Education in Cyprus and North Cyprus in Cyprus and North Cyprus

    The person you'll meet in North-Cyprus is either a Student, a Tourist or a UN- or Turkish soldier on leave. North-Cyprus has strictly service-based economy with hotels, bars and casinos.
    Their bigger investment needs is being provided by Turkey and as this thread proves there's increasingly more money available for North-Cyprus.



    Greek-Cyprus has junk credit-rating and needs EU bailout.
    BBC News - Cyprus's credit rating cut to junk status by Fitch

    They're as much a FAIL as Greece is.

    Doesn't matter, both Greece and Cyprus are already so far ahead of Turkey and the truncation it calls Northern Cyprus. I mean so many years on and the planned availability of drinkable water and a communication system that is not a relic of the 70s is a talking point?! Another $100 billion US over another 50 years, Northern Cyprus might come close to the Cypriot Republic today. Turkey, a perennial economic basket case cannot afford it, as the eastern halve of the country is still practically in the Stone Age anyway.

    Get real!

    To the readers of this thread:
    The user "Meathead" is a Greek.
    He admitted it in this post which I link:

    Being a person from a FAILED nation he's butthurt a lot like his attitude in this thread proves.

    I have the luxury of being a citizen of two first world nations, neither of which is a shit hole, have few Kurds and are not surrounded by enemies. Eat your heart out there Mustafa!

    Btw, Turks should stick to food. After all, it is their only contribution to humanity.
