In this paper we estimate output, input and total factor productivity growth indices for the Cyprus manufacturing sector during the period of 1977-1994. We also compare the Cyprus manufacturing industries with the manufacturing industries of advanced industrialized European Union countries in terms of output growth and its sources. We find that, in recent years, the output and productivity growth of some manufacturing industries in Cyprus has been substantially reduced, creating some concern about he ability if these industries to survive when Cyprus becomes a European Union member.
