Congress Is Trying to Use the Spending Bill to Criminalize Boycotts of Israel and Other Countries

According to recent reports, congressional leaders from both sides of the aisle are planning to sneak a bill criminalizing politically motivated boycotts of Israel into the end-of-the-year omnibus spending bill.The bill’s original sponsor, Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), is pushing Democratic leadership to include this bill, which has not moved forward thus far primarily because it violates the First Amendment. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are reportedly leaning toward slipping the text into the spending bill, which needs to pass for the government to stay open.

Eric Zuesse: U.S. Demands Europe to Join Its War Against Russia

On December 16th, the Russian Senator, Konstantin Kosachev, who heads that body’s foreign-affairs committee, went public accusing the U.S. Government of coercing German corporations to abandon their investments in the key Russia-EU gas-pipeline project, which is now nearing completion. It’s a joint project of Russia and of corporations in some EU countries. He called this U.S. pressure against European corporations an affront to the national sovereignty of both the German and the Russian Governments, and, more broadly, an affront against the sovereignty of the entire EU, which, he pointed out, is not like America’s NATO alliance with Europe is, an instrumentality of war, but is supposed to be, instead, an economic and political union — an instrumentality of peaceful international cooperation, not of any sort of international coercion.

Kyrgyzstan’s economic week – Dec. 10 - 15, 2018

Alcohol is regulated. The Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EAEC) adopted the technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union “On the safety of alcohol products”. The technical regulation establishes mandatory safety requirements for alcoholic beverages and conformity assessment procedures in the EAEC. Technical regulations on alcohol products will come into force two years after official publication, which will ensure a smooth transition of producers of alcoholic beverages to single mandatory requirements.

Tariffs and Parliament. The Parliament of the Kyrgyz Republic is against the increase in electricity tariffs, but does not make decisions. Chairman of the parliamentary committee on the fuel and energy complex and subsoil use Kozhobek Ryspaev, the decision on tariffs should be made by the State Agency for Regulation of the Fuel and Energy Complex of the Kyrgyz Republic. “Until 2015, the Jogorku Kenesh had made a decision on tariffs. But after it was decided to create an independent body that will regulate tariffs,”he said. The parliamentarian believes that it is impossible to raise tariffs when salaries and pensions remain low. Taxes from Bishkek. For 11 months of 2018, tax revenues in the budget of Bishkek amounted to 5 billion 580.5 million soms or amounted to 99.1% of the plan.

A positive trend of economic growth has been achieved due to an increase in production volumes in the industrial and agricultural sectors of the country. The volume of industrial products released in Kyrgyzstan from January to November amounted to 221.1 billion soms, which indicates its increase by 4.9%. Such indicators are ensured due to the growth of mineral extraction by 7.8%, as well as the production of precious metals - by 2.2%. Export to decline? For the period from January to October of the current year, the volume of exports of goods from Kyrgyzstan decreased by 1.6% compared to the same period in 2017. According to data of the National Statistics Committee of the Kyrgyz Republic, this is due to a decrease in export of gold from the country by 16.5%, the share of which in the total volume of export supplies decreased from 37.1 to 31.5%.

A joint meeting of the working groups on tourism “Almaty – Bishkek Economic Corridor” (ECAB) of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan was held this week in Almaty. At the meeting, officials of state bodies of the two countries noted the importance of promoting a joint project in terms of strengthening interregional socio-economic ties between the two countries and tourism potential. One of the main issues at the meeting of the ECAB working groups is the development of a master plan for the development of tourism clusters in Issyk-Kul and Chui regions, in terms of specialization and integrated development.

The maximum growth in the number of transactions for 11 months of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017 was observed in April. This is due to the allocation of funds for lending to agricultural entities. Russia and trout. In the Siberian Federal District of Russia, the demand for trout from Kyrgyzstan is growing. Next year, Russian companies are ready to double the volume of purchased products. According to data of the Agency for the Promotion and Protection of Investments of the Kyrgyz Republic, in July of the current year during the V International Economic Forum «Issyk-Kul 2018» an agreement on cooperation was signed between the Agency and Innovation Business Group CJSC. Thus, in the course of bilateral meetings of domestic suppliers and partners, contracts worth 60 million rubles were concluded. At the end of November 2018, the delivery of Kyrgyz trout was made in the amount of 58.4 million rubles. Kabar News Agency
