  1. Not unexpected but the world can hardly stay closed much longer.
    We do feel that the island is doing a good job of trying to balance things here,they talk the talk and seem to keep on top of ever changing situation.
    We can but wish them well with the efforts they are making.
    To show what a major effect this is having, the latest loss of financial income reported,is 41 million euros from port income,its not surprising its one of the most expensive ports in Europe and across the Med,if that figure is correct and assuming IVA is part of that,then tax on profits,look at loss of revenue to Madeira tax system.
