US and Europe diverge on trade and many others – is Central and Eastern Europe feeling the pain?

The battle lines are already drawn and it is getting worse – the US administration and European leaders are permanently expanding the list of contentious issues. Most of the countries in the Central and Eastern European region have been trying to avoid taking sides openly in the dispute, although it has been an increasingly difficult game. After all, until not long ago EU and NATO expansion were processes progressing almost simultaneously, and the transatlantic links were rather an enabler. Are the transatlantic controversies going to impact the business climate in the region?

REINVENTAREA STANGII EUROPENE ?

Noua stea a laburismului britanic se numeste Jeremy Corbyn, iar alegerile viitoare- in toamna acestui an- ar putea sa-i confere titlul de lider. Este interesant  ca in ultimul timp – asa cum de altfel este normal- in fata ascensiunii si popularitatii sale s-a interpus un baraj de intrebari referitoare la pozitiile sale atat in domeniul politicii interne si externe. .
