    [10] Finance Minister - House Plenary - State Budget 2002

    Nicosia, Oct 4 (CNA) -- Last month's terrorist attacks in the US and the uncertainty that prevails worldwide will have negative repercussions on the global economy as well as the Cypriot economy, especially because the latter depends heavily on external factors and tourism, Finance Minister Takis Klerides said here today, as he tabled the state budget for 2002 to the House of Representatives.

    "The rate of growth so far and the economic indicators are considered very satisfactory but developments cause concern about future economic prospects, " the minister told today's first House plenary, stressing that the government is monitoring closely developments and will take all necessary measures to minimize any adverse fallout.
