Brexit No (Good) Exit

When the UK formally initiated the process of leaving the EU by triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty two years ago, the British government promised the UK would leave the EU on 29th March 2019, with a new trade agreement combining the best of all worlds

Preserving Identity is Investing in Freedom

This time and its communication technologies are not favourable to small nations. Moreover, the seemingly unobtrusively drawn stance that we are closer to the shores of some global civilisation and cultural course, and that we’ll receive everything we need when we get there - is only enough for us to forget what has been and what we were. Blissful ignorance of the future! Although these words of mine will probably be understood as the mystification of identity, I consider its preservation as a prerequisite, a kind of deposit for free, straight and creative communication with the world - Vladimir Kostić

Solid Steel Friendship

“Following the HBIS Group’s purchase of the steelworks and a number of reforms to production and management processes, the Smederevo Steelworks has become Serbia’s largest exporter and an employer of 5,000 workers. The problem of the quota [for the EU] represents a major challenge for the steelworks and has a negative impact on its work. We expect the quota problem to be resolved as soon as possible, in order to prevent it from having a negative impact on the healthy development of the steelworks” - Ambassador Chen Bo

However, I don’t believe that such debates are a necessary consequence of any agreement between Serbia and Kosovo. What is agreed between two sovereign states is not a precedent for others – James Ker-Lindsay

Do We Need a New Law to Determine the Origins of...

In a society where there is a belief that there are “selected taxpayers” with whom there is a discrepancy between reported revenues and acquired assets, there is a justified need for such cases to be investigated. The choice of the way we will do this tells us a lot about the social values we want to promote

Statement by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe

The New Japanese Era Name is “Reiwa”

This was taken from wording appearing in the Manyoshu: “In this auspicious month of early spring, the weather is fine and the wind gentle. The plum blossoms open like powder before a mirror while the orchids give off the sweet scent of a sachet.” Moreover, this name “Reiwa” includes the meaning of culture coming into being and flourishing when people bring their hearts and minds together in a beautiful manner
