Worldwide, 01/03/2018

The annual analysis for 2018 provides an overview of current and emerging points of conflict and offers an assessment of their development.

Tensions are expected in Europe as well, however: Poland is rubbing its citizens and the EU up the wrong way with its policies.

The annual analysis cannot claim to be comprehensive. Rather, it is intended to provide assistance to Soliswiss members, travelers and Swiss citizens abroad as well as highlight developments.

Sri Lanka kenne ich seit 1971 als Touristin. Vor allem war ich am Tauchen interessiert. Damals gab es noch keine Tauchbasen. Die Idee kam dann, eine solche selber zu eroeffnen, was 1980 konkret in Angriff genommen wurde. s. meinen nachfolgenden Bericht.
