Cyprus gives LSE professor the stamp of approval

Christopher Pissarides StampNew stamps to honour Nobel Prize winner and LSE professor, Christopher Pissarides|, have been issued by the Cyprus Postal Service.

The stamp, which went into circulation today (Wednesday 8 June), costs €1,71 and can be used for letters sent locally but also the rest of Europe and other countries.

Professor Pissarides won the Nobel for Economics last autumn and has been hailed as a national hero in Cyprus, both for his work and for promoting Cyprus abroad. He is the first Cypriot to have been awarded a Nobel Prize.
