The newspaper Äripäev names Max Kaur among the top managers

The newspaper Äripäev once again compiled the Estonian economic lexicon "The Estonian TOP MANAGERS 2016". I was included in the list. As a mayor of Peipus capital, of course, I am glad about the recognition. Mustvee is not a big town, but with its 500-year history, this is a good place in Estonia, unique for its bilingual population, featuring three cultures and five churches. The Estonian-Russian Border treaty as well as normalization of the economic relations with the eastern neighbor will sooner or later bring to Mustvee a passenger port terminal or customs and border control station, and give anew impact for improvement of the economic results in the town, region, Estonia and the European Union as a whole. This is all necessary in difficult times. During the administrative reform, Mustvee top managers have acted efficiently, in any circumstance the purpose is to improve the living standards of the population. Let’s act intelligently and make our lives better.

The Prime Minister will discuss the administrative reform with the leaders of the Mustvee town

Taavi Rõivas, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Estonia, invited Max Kaur, the Mayor of Mustvee, and Riina Pajula, the Chairman of the City Council of Mustvee, to the Jõgeva County Administration on Friday, April 22, 2016, to discuss plans on the reformation of local self-governments with the self-government of Jõgeva County.  
For many years, Mustvee town represents the centre of attraction in the region. Historically, Mustvee District was acting in this region. It's almost the same region, to which a proposal of merging was made by the leadership of the Mustvee town in January this year, i.e. Kasepää, Lohusuu, Avinurme, Saare and Torma counties.
To date, both the infrastructure of Mustvee and provision of services improve significantly. A modern passenger port on Lake Peipus is rapidly developing.

"In the long term, I am sure that both the border control and customs point with Russia will emerge here based on the existing border post" said Max Kaur, the Mayor of Mustvee. All of this is necessary because of the planned restoration of the passenger vessel traffic at Peipus. This will revitalise the economic life in the region. Thus, the town is ready to become the new region's centre."
The aim of the administrative reform is the creation of self-governments able to provide inhabitants with better public services, ensure the increase of the regions' competitiveness and independently perform tasks assigned to them by Law.

The NATO headquarters – from Brussels to London

Belgium has struggled with ceaseless shooting in the centre of Brussels for many years. The Belgian police have clearly demonstrated their complete inability to end with Islamists of Arabic descent, who live in the very heart of Brussels. It implies that the time to act has come. Such activity directly concerns Estonia. Estonia is a member of the European Union and NATO. The capital of the European Union is Brussels, and the NATO headquarters locate in Brussels. There is no time to waste anymore. I suggest that all European Union establishments should be relocated from Brussels to Strasbourg. The NATO headquarters should move from Brussels to London.By the way, the Belgian police cannot cope with Islamists of Arabic descent as the relations and friends of those Islamists work in the police. They inform their contacts about all police plots. This is not the news for Brussels residents. They have been laughing at the police helplessness long since. The police have also adopted multicultural ideas and, in proper sense of the word, shoot themselves in the foot. Thus, today we speak about hundreds victims of such policy. I sincerely feel for Brussels victims and the municipal administration of the city of Brussels.The time has come to be reasonable and realistic. A belief that people can be re-educated is typical of communists. They used to believe that people can be brought from the slave-owning system directly into the socialism. Such idea has failed miserably. The Arabic countries have been behind Europe in their cultural and social development, they are based on sinister blindness and hatred, where human life has no value. Their inhabitants bring their habits, lifestyle, mania to kill into Europe. Have a look at Palestinians who target old people, women and children in Israel. We can only oppose that by using force. The Europeans should resolutely range themselves on the side of law and order.
