Cyprus became the first euro zone country to impose capital controls to prevent a collapse of its banking sector as it scrambled to secure the 10 billion euro bailout.
The controls were imposed in the country following a nearly two-week emergency bank holiday on the island while the negotiations were taking place.
Georgiades said progress is being made on the "tricky" banking sector in Cyprus
"We have already significantly relaxed these restrictions, they are nothing like they were a month ago," said Georgiades .

Georgiades told CNBC he was eager to repair any damage to relations with Brussels, and said Cyprus will impose fiscal discipline in order to make ends meet.
"The government is eager to get down to work as far as these structural measures, these big reforms that were needed," he said.
"Progress is being made on the banking sector, that is a tricky sector I have to admit. In any case we shall at last be imposing fiscal discipline, we are ready to make ends meet – even if it is going to be a difficult year or two ahead of us for public finances but mostly for the real economy. We shall do it with determination," he added.
"We are making good progress, if I can remind you of all those doomsday scenarios we faced a month and a half ago, like the complete collapse of our banking system," he added.
