 Dear Readers,

Meran.jpgInstructed by his government "to tread softly" when dealing with Moscow at the Marshall Plan negotiations in Paris, the Austrian representative risked a tightrope walk: trying to secure a maximum of support for Austria while avoiding to offend the Soviet occupying power, which criticized the "Marshallization" and "enslavement" of Austria. The Vienna Technisches Museum opened an exhibition commemorating this unique U.S. initiative.

Extraordinary changes of supply and demand have spurred Eastern and Southeastern European markets.

Since the mid-90s, a bi-lingual radio station has engendered a self-assured and relaxed generation of listeners.

Austria is at the architectural forefront. The new European Central Bank will be "Made in Austria".

Yours sincerely,
Christoph Meran
