Dear Reader,
 
We are launching the newly designed http://brussels.cta.int this week. 
The first Weblog Newsletter was launched in November 2004 featuring daily news service online and a weekly Newsletter on the main issues and events of importance for the ACP-EU development.
This service has today more than 5000 readers in French and English and 380 Newsletters sent so far. The daily online news service is followed by more than 14000 unique visitors per month.

On the basis of the feedbacks that we have been receiving over the past 4 years from you, our visitors, the site has been re-designed and we have tried to make it more user-friendly for you.
 
The new features include:
- a section where an invitee per week will comment some of the most burning development issues discussed in Brussels.
- a signpost for sharing, e-mailing and printing an article, links to the source for each news item.
- news categorised by thematic groups:  you can now find information by themes much more easily than before.
- an advanced search option that will allow user to do specific thematic search.
- an archive, where news are stored by months of the year.
- links to the Brussels Development Briefings and to the EC, ACP and other Brussels-based websites.
- subscription to RSS feeds.
Other features, such as the daily updated calendar of events, remain.
 
We thank you for your interest on this information tool and appreciate your feedback.
