Dear readers, you have opened the 100th issue of JŪRA MOPE SEA. That’s how many we have released since the summer of 1999. You could say that this is our one hundred miles on the winding road of creativity and publishing, sometimes demanding effort to climb up the hill and sometimes excitedly driving down into an abyss, as if riding a rollercoaster. There were moments of difficult driving off-road with an occasional enjoyment of even, yet always dangerously slippery highway. I am glad that we’ve overcome that hundred miles always moving forward without stopping for a rest, not to mention harbouring any thoughts to turn back. We were and we still continue to move towards important events, knowledge, the source of new ideas and projects. All in all – to move towards adventure. Just like in the book of Jack Kerouac.

 

Astana’s sweltering summer is now only a memory. But it was a ‘hot’ summer not only in terms of temperature (although it was very high). From June to September, Kazakhstan’s capital city was lit up by the ‘Rays of Future Energy’ of the EXPO 2017, radiating from Nur Alem, Kazakhstan’s pavilion, and 115 other pavilions, representing various world countries, as well as the hearts of the more than four million people visiting the event. Vytautas NAUDUŽAS, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary in Kazakhstan, had to survive this all-encompassing heat as well.

The Indian government is currently investing into the country’s infrastructure on a massive scale – whether this involves roads, railway lines or waterways. The budget for upgrading roads alone is worth almost $14 billion until 2018. This should give a further boost to the Indian logistics market, which is already expanding at a rapid rate. Messe München is offering foreign entrepreneurs an ideal opportunity to participate in the development of this market at the transport logistic India @ CTL in Mumbai on 23–24 January 2018.

The first choice of cruise liner companies planning their routes usually lies with capital cities. However, the recently finished cruise season in Klaipėda was particularly successful – the port has recorded a record-breaking number of cruise tourists and the next year is promising a real breakthrough in the segment.

The bright kingdom of Nur Alem 

Meanwhile, we can roam in our thoughts and memories of the mysterious nomad land, the home of the reserved, but strong people, hardened by the heat, the cold and the steppe winds, who managed to surprise the world by turning the midst of the steppes, featuring vast planes, powerful winter winds and 45 degrees of cold, into the new capital of Kazakhstan, shining with towering metal and glass skyscrapers, in such a short time. As if a gorgeous bride, the capital, celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this year, attracted travellers from various countries to show what each is made of, what they can and what wonders they can offer to enrich the world.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Bega Stevedoring Company from Klaipėda (Lithuania) opened one of the most powerful complexes for handling agricultural produce in the Baltic Region. This project has been developed for several recent years.

The Lithuanian delegation began the events of the Belarusian Transport Week, which took place for four days in Minsk, with an interesting tour to the Great Stone China-Belarus Industrial Park, developed in a beautiful territory near the airport 25 km outside of Minsk.

 

 

logitrans transport and logistics exhibition, organised by the German Messe München and the Turkish EKO companies, taking place in the middle of November every year, is usually participated by European and Asian transport, logistics and shipping companies, marine and air ports, as well as associations and academic institutions.

Logistics 4.0 and the New Silk Road have been the all-dominating topics at logitrans 2017, which took place in Istanbul from November 15 to 17 2017. The event was attended by 150 exhibitors and about 13,700 participants. Participants from Eurasian countries introduced their products and services, as well as official pavilions from Germany, Austria and France.

Last week Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, hosted the 21st TransKazakhstan international transport and logistics exhibition, as well as the 10th New Eurasia: Development of Transport and Logistics Systems in Eurasian Transcontinental Routes international conference.

Over 120 participants gathered in Trelleborg, to take part at the annual Baltic Ports Conference. The event, organized by the Baltic Ports Organization and hosted by the Port of Trelleborg, focused on topics related to the future of the port industry. The changing political landscape, regulations, trends in the shipping and port sector, as well as digitalization all made an appearance on the day’s agenda.

At the end of the year representatives of the German–Baltic Chamber of Commerce (AHK) shared their insights on the political situation after the recently concluded German elections and German–Lithuanian relations.

Lithuanian Yard – the Lithuanian business and culture centre, featuring a Lithuanian food café, an art gallery and a conference hall – opened its gate in Karaganda this autumn.

The MA*GA Museum in Gallarate is hosting a major exhibition of paintings and drawings by Jack Kerouac, one of the literary icons of the 20th century, from 3 December 2017 to 22 April 2018.

With eighty paintings and drawings, the exhibition reveals a side of the father of the Beat Generation that has never been really explored before.

Added interest and depth are created by photographs by Robert Frank and Ettore Sottsass, historical documents, a project by Peter Greenaway, and an interview with Arnaldo Pomodoro published in the catalogue that recalls his experiences at Stanford University, California, in 1966.
