The Economist News Desk (September-14th-2017)


Europe’s future: Sign of life

Yesterday Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, presented an ambitious set of proposals for the EU’s future. Among them were a rash of trade deals, a beefed-up cyber-security agency and a promise to expand the EU to the western Balkans. The speech showed renewed confidence in the EU’s importance. But behind his ambition is a quiet fear that it could all go wrong again, writes our European politics columnist

A report published yesterday by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation suggests that while the world has made enormous strides in recent decades against poverty and illnesses, progress may be faltering. The wealthy philanthropists are usually heroically optimistic. But now they worry that changes in demography and in donor preferences may threaten the future of millions, if not billions, of people


Protests in Togo: Weeping and gnashing
In recent weeks thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Lomé, capital of the little west African state of Togo, to force President Faure Gnassingbé to resign. At least two protesters have been killed and dozens arrested. Street protests have recently led to the fall of several west African governments. But the Togolese opposition is more likely to face brutal oppression than to achieve its aims, writes our west Africa correspondent

The reason for the rebound is the seriousness with which China protects the animals. Even as cities and farms have grown, the country has added reserves. Logging is banned in them; poaching attracts severe punishments; and “panda diplomacy” has been part of foreign policy for centuries
