Diplomatique.Expert publishes first Annual Global Stability Index Report
From Italy’s populist streak to the Qatar crisis, from the imminent start of the Brexit countdown to redefining the World Order, understanding the current dynamics across the Mediterranean and where Europe is going, advisory firm Diplomatique.Expert’s edition of the Annual Global Stability Index has all the major geopolitical issues covered.
Published by media platform Corporate Dispatch for Diplomatique.Expert, the Annual Global Stability Index is the very first in a series of publications that carry the name ‘Diplomatique.Expert’, which intends to be a thought-provoking journal aimed at delving 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 at hand and our aim is to provide facts, presented by expert, reputable and unbiased sources,” says Corporate Despatch Managing Director Jesmond Saliba, who co-edited the Report together with Matthew Bugeja from Bugeja Geopolitical Consulting.
Diplomatique.Expert has teamed up with Bugeja Geopolitical Consulting for its first publication.
The Geopolitical Stability Index aims at providing the necessary insight and at establishing itself as a ‘bearing’ so one can calibrate the thinking process required to take commercial decisions that depend on geopolitical risk assessments.
Matthew Bugeja 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”, he said. “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 and the 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, they have marginally improved quarter-onquarter 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 – who heads the EU Affairs Unit of Diplomatique.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, the United States, New Zealand, Austria and the United Kingdom are in the next tier.
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 have witnessed in recent months is probably an unprecedented wave of disruption. In technology, disruption is good but in politics and the interna- tional scene, it means 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 Mr Saliba.
