vadim_brexit

Mr. Blaustein, what can you say about the current state of the customs situation in the EU? Vadim Blaustein: At this moment, 28 of the EU member states participate in the Customs Union - an agreement decades old, an instrument towards the liberalisation of trade in Europe, which subsequently became the cornerstone of the EU itself. Throughout its years of existence, it was gradually developing towards harmonisation of legislation, unification of tariffs and customs procedures in the participating states and designing of single trade policie...

car (1)

Homes also need to be built to a higher standard, the Committee on Climate Change - the official watchdog - says. The government says the UK is cutting emissions faster than any other G7 nation - and the committee agrees there has been a big shift under Theresa May. However, it says the UK will fall short of its ambitions unless ministers do more to turn pledges into reality. The warning comes less than a week after the prime minister launched a 25-year plan to protect the environment, including eradicating all avoidable plastic waste by 204...

That might be peanuts compared to the music or film industries, but the numbers are going in the rig... Read More »

London’s once red-hot housing market has slowed for the past year due to a double hit from higher purchase taxes on expensive homes and the June 2016 Brexit vote, which hurt demand from foreign buyers and raised fears of big job losses in the capital’s financial industry. Rightmove, Britain’s biggest property website,... Read More »
