Economic relationship between foreign married couples resident in Italy

This article deals with the issue of the choice of law ruling the economic relationship between foreign married partners who are resident in Italy. The Italian law 218 of the 1995 reforming the international private law determines the field of application of the Italian jurisdiction and the criteria to individuate the applicable law.

Concerning the economic relationship between married couples, if they have the same nationality, the common national law of the two partners will be enforced. In case the two partners have two different citizenships, it will be enforced the law of the state where the marriage predominantly takes place.

The Italian law offers a further opportunity: The two partners may agree in a written form that their economic affairs will be regulated by the law of the state of which at least one of them is citizen. Such a choice has to occur not only in written form but also at the presence of an Italian notary public. In case the choice will fall on the Italian law it’s important to explain the way the Italian law regulates economic relationships in reference with the purchase of real estate properties. The general principle is the one of the legal communion; as a consequence if two married partners will buy a property it will belong to the both of them in equal proportion.

An alternative possibility would be the separation of goods, in such case it will be possible to register to property in the name of just one partner. Summarizing, if a foreign married couple will decide to regulate its economic affairs according to the Italian law, they will have to do it with a public deed at the presence of an Italian notary public. In such context they will have the chance for a further possibility concerning the ownership of their properties; choosing either the communion, or the separation or even the trust.

ASEAN Human Rights Body Inaugurated, But Activists Barred from Dialogue

Southeast Asian leaders have inaugurated the region’s first body to promote human rights at summit meetings in Thailand. But the inauguration was overshadowed by activists being barred from a dialogue with Southeast Asian leaders and tension between the Thai and Cambodian prime ministers.The Association of Southeast Asian Nations on Friday marked the establishment of its inter-governmental commission on human rights, known as AICHR.Speaking at the ceremony marking the occasion, Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said it was a significant advancement for ASEAN and placed human rights at the center of its agenda. “The responsibility now rests on all of us to work together to move AICHR forward, to make it credible and effective in the promotion and protection of human rights,” he said.Human rights activists talk to reporters after meeting with ASEAN leaders in Cha-Am, southern Thailand, 23 Oct 2009

But as the annual ASEAN summit in Hua Hin was celebrating the new rights body, rights activists were lamenting.Half of the representatives they chose for an ASEAN-civil society dialogue Friday were not allowed to meet Southeast Asian leaders, while those who were allowed into the meeting were not permitted to speak. The rights activists representing Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand walked out in protest. The governments of Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Singapore, and the Philippines rejected the activists meant to represent their countries.The governments of Singapore and Burma went one step further by choosing their own representatives for the talks. Debbie Stothard is with the regional rights group Alternative ASEAN Network on Burma.”And by trying to pick people that they feel comfortable who will be ‘yes’ people and echo what they want does not solve the problem, it merely prolongs it. This region cannot afford to let these problems continue,” she said.It was not the first time ASEAN leaders rejected scheduled dialogue with activists. At ASEAN meetings in February, Cambodia and Burma refused to meet with representatives chosen by rights groups.ASEAN Sec. General Surin Pitsuwan, Phuket, Thailand (File)le)

ASEAN Secretary General Surin Pitsuwan told VOA that some flexibility was needed for ASEAN members that were not at the same level of what he called “democratic evolution.”In other controversy at the ASEAN summit, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen repeated an offer to welcome Thailand’s former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra to stay in Cambodia.Thaksin was ousted in a 2006 military coup that led the current government to power. He fled Thailand to avoid corruption charges and has since been encouraging anti-government protests that forced the cancellation of an April ASEAN summit.Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva told journalists that Mr. Hun Sen was misinformed about Thaksin and should not allow himself to be a pawn or make decisions that could affect Thai-Cambodia relations.

Public Sector Networks Confuse Government It Professionals

of public servants working in an IT or commercial function do not know where their organisation stands in the process of adopting a public services network (PSN). The PSN is core to the governments ICT Strategy with the Cabinet Office estimating it could save up to 130m a year in central government by 2014.

In three years time the government wants 80 per cent of its PC based staff to be using the network, thats around 4 million users.

The survey which found these restuls was by BT and entitled the PSNsus Survery. It asked 1,300 public servants from a range of professional areas and sectors in January this year to get an idea of whether the public sector is moving towards the governments goal of creating a shared information and communications infrastructure.

There does, however appear to be more awareness of PSNs in local government, with the figure rising to 69% for Central Government respondents being unaware, which compares to only 31 % for local government.

In my experience there is a huge amount of innovation happening in local government when compared with central government, said Neil Rogers, president of global government at BT Global Services.

The PSN will create a network of networks by joining up organisations, departments, authorities and agencies that deliver public services at local, regional and national levels. The public sector will be sold PSN services by a number of providers, who will then connect to Direct Network Service Providers (DNSPs) via the Government Conveyance Network (GCN).

The GCN is the backbone to the PSN and acts as the gateway between the networks of different service providers. BT, Virgin Media, Cable & Wireless and Global Crossing have all agreed to mesh together their networks to create a single network for the PSN.

Its not all bad; the survey did find that 44% of IT savvy public servants knew what stage their organisation was at in adopting a PSN. However, only 12% were carrying out initial scoping exercises, and 9% have implementation in place. These numbers are low but Rogers believes that they should not be cause for concern. As the scale of the project means that it will take time to create the governments vision for a fully connected PSN.

The PSN is core to the governments ICT Strategy with the Cabinet Office estimating it could save the public sector up to 130m a year in central government by 2014.

Brett Tollman And The Travel Corporation Praised For Visionary Investment Into Sa

Tourism leaders in South Africa have worked tirelessly over the past year to showcase to the world, through hosting of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, all that the destination has to offer as both a travel choice for leisure and business tourists, and a centre for equitable tourism sector investment. All of the economic and social indicators are in pointing towards South Africa as a nation worth the investment, worth the efforts, worth the trip.

The building of South Africa, as a competitive tourism destination on the world stage began, however, long before hosting of the Games was awarded. It is because of the efforts of the sector over the past decade plus that the nation was able to achieve host status.
One of the leaders in tourism growth and development in South Africa, and around the world, recently received open praise by leaders of the industry for having belief in the destination long before the analysts and advertisers fully appreciated the merits of the nation as a tourism economy.

As stated by Minister Alan Winde, Minister of Tourism, Finance and Economic Development for the Western Cape at the Gala Dinner of The Travel Corporation 2010 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE in Cape Town, South Africa:

Thank you to the Tollman family for choosing to invest in South Africa long before any of the statistics were known. Through people like you, we will be able to positively influence the reputation of our destination overseas, and inspire visitors to make a trip here for the first time. We are thrilled that the TTC has now chosen to host its biennial travel and tourism conference in Cape Town. The World Cup was the springboard we needed to attract conferences such as this one, which will foster the sustainable growth of our tourism industry. This event presents us with a strategic opportunity to tell 350 of the worlds top travel decision makers from around the world why Cape Town and the Western Cape should be their clients destination of choice. TTC’s commitment to South Africa is and has always been for the long-term.”

Speaking of the ongoing investment made by The Travel Corporation into South Africa through, inter alia Red Carnation Hotels , Cullinan Business Development, Travcorp South Africa and several of the global Travel Corporation businesses providing strong in-bound travel to the destination, Brett Tollman, CEO of The Travel Corporation made clear the company, and Tollman familys, commitment to South Africa.

This is not just a destination which we believe has potential for strong, sustainable growth through tourism investment and stimulation, this is also our homeland. The government of South Africa can rely on The Travel Corporation to champion its cause of sector development for the benefit of all South Africans.

APEC Leaders Agree to Chart New Growth in Asia Pacific

Singapore PM Lee Hsien Loong, back to camera, gives welcome address to APEC leaders, in Singapore, 14 Nov 2009009

Leaders of Pacific Rim nations have agreed to work toward a new pattern of regional growth.

In a statement released Sunday, Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders meeting in Singapore acknowledged the leading role Asia Pacific nations have taken in the global economic recovery. But they said their regional economies can not return to growth as usual.

The 21 Pacific Rim economies agree a new growth strategy is needed to meet the needs of the global economy.

He said, Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong read an outline of the statement to APEC leaders. He said, “We will pursue growth which is balanced, inclusive, and sustainable, to ensure a durable recovery that will create jobs and benefit people.”

During the last day of meetings Sunday, APEC leaders also held discussions about climate change. They agreed a legally binding agreement to lower greenhouse gas emissions was not likely by a December meeting in Copenhagen, but a framework for further negotiations was possible.

Pacific Rim leaders dropped a target to cut greenhouse gas emissions from a draft statement. But, Mr. Lee’s outline mentioned their concerns. “To achieve sustainable growth, we will work towards an ambitious outcome in Copenhagen and ensure that efforts to mitigate climate change are consistent with our international trade obligations,” said Mr. Lee.

U.S. President Barack Obama gave a speech to APEC leaders Sunday saying they needed a growth model that would allow all nations to grow and raise living standards without damaging the environment.

APEC leaders meeting this past week in Singapore said high unemployment was a sign that the global economic recovery is still fragile and protectionism a concern.

The APEC statement says free trade and open markets are key for continued prosperity in the Asia Pacific.
