Interesting to note the various legislative developments in Europe this
week: agreements on unregulated fishing, safety rules for passenger
ships, cooperation on energy and wind farms, partnerships with third
countries regarding migration, air transport agreements, prospectus
reform for access to capital markets and new rules on payment cards.
The message? Meaningful government in today's globalised world is not possible without international cooperation. It is dishonest to suggest that it is.
