It is Thursday the 12th of April and time for our newsletter. This past week has seen quite a media uproar in Europe since it became evident that Viktor Orban and his party in Hungary was elected with an overwhelming majority. Mr. Orban does not belong to the "politically correct" segment of EU politics. No, he is a man that is able to stand on his own and is not necessarily looking for a well-paid job in the EU after his national career is finished, like where so many others end their career. He has without a doubt, his faults, but Hungary is a democracy and the mainstream media (where most journalists seem to have been educated) better accept the voter's decision even when it goes against their opinion. Orban was elected; our commissars in the EU were not and likely never will be.
Spring has finally arrived here in the north of Europe, people say that its the latest arrival of spring in the last 100 years. The mood noticeably changes for the better with the sunshine and blue skies. My energy also seems to have returned now that jetlag has subsided and spring has emerged, enabling me to provide you with 3 excellent interviews this week.
First, we have an interesting interview with a Japanese owned and very reputable breakbulk shipowner with technical expertise that has started a new route into Africa. Then we visit India to speak to a shipowner with h/l tonnage who is strong in Asia and we finish with an Indian freight forwarder giving us insights on changes to the Indian logistics and customs procedures.
We hope you will enjoy this week's newsletter and please don't forget to see this week's great featured video.
Wishing you a good read and until next week...
Yours sincerely, Bo H. Drewsen
