Malta-based Di­plo­ma­tique.Ex­pert pub­lishes first An­nual Global Sta­bil­ity In­dex Re­port

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

From Italy’s pop­ulist streak to the Qatar cri­sis, from the im­mi­nent start to the Brexit count­down to re­defin­ing of the World Or­der. Un­der­stand­ing the cur­rent dy­nam­ics across the Mediter­ranean and where is Europe go­ing, Di­plo­ma­tique.Ex­pert’s edi­tion of the An­nual Global Sta­bil­ity In­dex has the ma­jor geopo­lit­i­cal is­sues all cov­ered.

Pub­lished by me­dia plat­form Cor­po­rate Dis­patch for Ad­vi­sory Firm Di­plo­ma­tique.Ex­pert, the An­nual Global Sta­bil­ity In­dex is the very first in a series of pub­li­ca­tions which carry the name Di­plo­ma­tique.Ex­pert, which aims to be a thought-pro­vok­ing jour­nal aimed to delve into a num­ber of ar­eas. The first edi­tion is based on in­ter­na­tional re­la­tions, eco­nom­ics and geopo­lit­i­cal af­fairs.

“Our mis­sion at Cor­po­rate ID Group is in­spired by the be­lief that facts form the ba­sis of co­op­er­a­tion and trust. For co­op­er­a­tion and trust to thrive, one needs to have the right facts in hand and our aim is to pro­vide facts, pre­sented by ex­pert, rep­utable and un­bi­ased sources,” says Jes­mond Sal­iba, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Cor­po­rate Dis­patch who co-edited this Re­port to­gether with Matthew Bugeja, from Bugeja Geopo­lit­i­cal Con­sult­ing.

Di­plo­ma­tique.Ex­pert has teamed up with Bugeja Geopo­lit­i­cal Con­sult­ing to its first pub­li­ca­tion.

The Geopo­lit­i­cal Sta­bil­ity In­dex aims to pro­vide the nec­es­sary in­sight and es­tab­lish it­self as a ‘bear­ing’ so one can calibrate the think­ing process re­quired to take com­mer­cial de­ci­sions which de­pend on geopo­lit­i­cal risk as­sess­ments.

Matthew Bugeja, had headed up the re­search el­e­ment of the Global Sta­bil­ity In­dex pro­ject. “Fol­low­ing the news over the past few months, one would be for­given for think­ing that the ver­i­ta­ble sky is fall­ing down. The world is en­ter­ing a pe­riod of in­creased un­cer­tainty as the United States ap­pears to be with­draw­ing from its tra­di­tional role as the leader of the global or­der, the UK & EU ne­go­ti­ate Brexit, China con­tin­ues to ex­pand its One Belt, One Road ini­tia­tive, and trade ten­sions ham­per re­la­tions be­tween the United States and a num­ber of its big­gest trad­ing part­ners. How­ever, global sta­bil­ity dy­nam­ics have not regis­tered a marked de­cline over the past five quar­ters. If any­thing, it has im­proved marginally quar­ter on quar­ter for sev­eral quar­ters in a row”, said Bugeja.

The jour­nal also car­ries a num­ber of in­sight ar­ti­cles namely on ma­jor geopo­lit­i­cal is­sues by Matthew Bugeja, Jes­mond Sal­iba, Sarah Spi­teri, Karl Bal­dacchino and Dr Yle­nia Mi­callef Gri­maud.

Mi­callef Gri­maud, heads the EU Af­fairs Unit of Di­plo­maitque.Ex­pert which is part of Cor­po­rate ID Group.

The Global Sta­bil­ity In­dex Re­port cov­ers a to­tal of 115 coun­tries and puts Nor­way, Lux­em­bourg, Switzer­land, Den­mark and Aus­tralia in the top five most po­lit­i­cally and eco­nom­i­cally sta­ble coun­tries. These are fol­lowed by Swe­den, Canada, Sin­ga­pore, Fin­land and the Nether­lands. Ger­many, United States, New Zealand, Aus­tria and the United King­dom rank next.

The In­dex con­tains per­for­mance re­views in terms of pop­u­la­tion and GDP as well as a Coun­try im­prove­ment / de­te­ri­o­ra­tion in­dex and a Sta­bil­ity / In­sta­bil­ity In­dex.

“What we wit­nessed in the past months is prob­a­bly an un­prece­dented wave of dis­rup­tion. In tech­nol­ogy, dis­rup­tion is good but in pol­i­tics and the in­ter­na­tional scene, dis­rup­tion is such that pre­dic­tions are hard to make. To make de­ci­sions, one needs to be in­formed and this is the mis­sion that drives Cor­po­rate ID Group and its struc­tures. We are proud to have teamed up with Bugeja Geopo­lit­i­cal Con­sult­ing to bring you this first pub­li­ca­tion, set at pro­vid­ing the nec­es­sary in­sight for those who make com­mer­cial de­ci­sions based on geopo­lit­i­cal risk as­sess­ments,” added Jes­mond Sal­iba.

The abridged ver­sion of the re­port sells at €45 while the Full Global Sta­bil­ity In­dex re­port sells at €300. Stu­dents and Aca­demics’ price is of €40 and €250.
