‘I don’t build homes or lead a nation, I only sit here under the branches of a white acacia’ – these words from the poem of the Lithuanian poet Henrikas Radauskas (1910–1970) are carved on the pavement in front of the front door of Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania. Your eyes stumble upon them each time you step into the fortress of knowledge and you might think that in the modern world of fierce competition, confrontation, intrigues and scandals both builders and nation leaders would find it useful to sit down under the branches of a white acacia – a symbol of the tree of life and world in European and Eastern cultural traditions – and have some thinking before taking action.

The conversation about cooperation between different countries and cultures, as well as synergy of business and art that we’ve been so positively engaged with Viktor Temirbayev, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Kazakhstan to Lithuania, continues with Dr Artūras RAZBADAUSKAS, Rector of Klaipėda University.
And our doing so is no coincidence. On 8–18 November a delegation from Klaipėda University will visit Kazakhstan and participate at an international science fair, which takes place at least in four cities of Kazakhstan.

 On 27 August 2018 Nursultan Nazarbayev, President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, appointed Viktor Temirbayev as the Ambassador of the Republic of Kazakhstan to Lithuania, replacing Bauyrzhan Mukhamedzhanov, who completed his mandate in Lithuania.

‘Clever logistics is a crucial condition for the success in the competition of regions. This is why Saxony-Anhalt is in an excellent position for its function as a multi-modal logistics hub.’

Thomas Webel, Minister of Regional Development and Transport of Saxony-Anhalt


At the Hafenhinterland Conference 2018 in the Bauhaus city of Dessau-Roßlau, experts discussed current challenges for the future of the logistics industry.

Around 100 logistics experts from six European countries discussed future solutions for port hinterland traffic in Dessau-Roßlau. Saxony-Anhalt is very well-positioned as a trailblazer. The federal state has developed into an important logistics hub in the heart of Europe, connecting freight traffic by rail, road and inland navigation.

World EXPO have been growing and developing since 1851 and remains one of the major events to this day, often compared to the Olympic Games and many other international events. Currently world EXPOs take place for six months every five years. Participated by the majority of the states of the world (e.g. 155 states in Hanover in 2000, 192 in Shanghai in 2010 and 144 in Milan in 2015), these exhibitions draw millions of people (e.g. the record of 63 million in Osaka in 1970 has been broken, when EXPO 2010 in Shanghai was visited by 73 million people).

The organisers of TransKazakhstan / Translogistica position themselves as the largest exhibition of transport and logistics services and technologies in Central Asia.


On 18-20 September Almaty hosted already the 22nd edition of the transport and logistics exhibition and a conference.

Lithuania, situated in a convenient geographic location between the east and west, can become a major transport partner in the Chinese New Silk Road – One Belt, One Road initiative. This topic was discussed at the international seminar and meeting between representatives of China International Freight Forwarders Association, East-West Transport Corridor Association and leadership of the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Lithuania, which took place in Vilnius.
