Ukraine’s stock market restores after Pety.A attack
Slovenians, Czechs and Bulgarians prefer travelling by car
„Poland’s finance minister has hit back at French president Emmanuel Macron’s claim that central and eastern European governments treat the EU like a supermarket,” the Financial Times reports on the congress of Poland’s ruling party PiS (Law and Justice).
Mateusz Morawiecki, who is in charge of Polish economic policy, has criticized the words of French President with an irony – saying he agrees in 100 per cent. He underlined the differences between the Western Europe and countries like Poland of which the Western countries take advantage. He commented that „richer countries can’t complain that cheap Polish workers have entered their market when their business operate in Poland crowd out local competitors”.
Morawiecki informed that tightening of the tax system will be continued. He also said that Poland will build a central transport hub “faster than many critics presume. We also should mull building high-speed railway and should build road bridges and a network of bicycle paths,” he added.
There was no trading on the Ukrainian stock market on Thursday, June 29th, and Friday, June 30th. But, as Interfax reports, Kiev bourse is „slowly restoring operations” after a huge cyberattack that took place on June 27th. The agency quotes the press release of PFTS Stock Exchange: „After the forced annulment of trading over failures in operation of the clearing infrastructure of the Ukrainian stock market we report on restoration of trading on June 30th, 2017 on the quotation and repo markets aiming to allow traders to have a chance of signing contracts on the delayed execution conditions.” At the same time the Kiev stock exchange informed that signing of contracts with the settlement date June 30th, 2017 is possible only after the full restoration of operations of the clearing infrastructure of the Ukrainian stock market.
The Eurostat has published a survey on tourism in the European Union. The data shows that „Europeans tend to favor domestic tourism” and this is why the leading means of transport are private or rented cars. As reported, cars have been used for nearly two-thirds (65 per cent) of all trips.
Among CSE countries, the biggest share of car-tourist were observed in Slovenia (84 per cent), the Czech Republic (79 per cent) and Bulgaria (75 per cent). The data also show air transport accounts for 16 per cent of all trips, railway for 11 per cent, bus for 6 per cent and waterways for 2 per cent.
Most of the tourists prefer to spend their days off as short breaks of maximum 3 nights away.
