O regime dos residentes não habituais foi aprovado em 2009 e, desde então, um número cada vez maior de estrangeiros escolhe Portugal para viver.

Impostos. Portugal é um paraíso fiscal para reformados estrangeiros

Esta escolha acontece porque consideram ser o país ideal para investir e fixar residência. Mas para isto muito tem contribuído um desagravamento fiscal considerável atribuído a estrangeiros. De acordo com os dados de 2014, da Secretaria de Estado dos Assuntos Fiscais, 1014 pessoas estavam inscritas como residentes não habituais e existiam 433 processos em análise. A verdade é que o número de estrangeiros em Portugal continua a aumentar porque se sentem atraídos também pelos ‘Vistos Gold’. A verdade é que, por exemplo, no caso dos pensionistas, a isenção de impostos sobre as pensões que o governo português concede, durante dez anos, aos reformados estrangeiros, faz com que o número aumente de ano para ano. Novo “paraíso fiscal” Mas quem pensa que Portugal é caso único neste sentido, desengane-se. Job search. Keep L Train Passengers Moving With Great BRT.

Map: Sahra Mirbabaee/BRT Planning International The news that Sandy-related repairs will require closing one or both directions of the L train under the East River (the “Canarsie Tube”) for one to three years has understandably caused panic among the estimated 230,000 daily passengers who rely on it. Businesses in Williamsburg that count on customers from Manhattan are also concerned about a significant downturn in sales.

When the Canarsie Tube was shut down on weekends only last spring, it was bad enough for their bottom line, and this will be much worse. Fixing the Canarsie Tube is imperative, but it doesn’t have to result in a massive disruption that threatens people’s livelihoods. The Inadequacy of Current Proposals What Should We Do Instead?

He is also director of the Brussels Centre for Urban Studies, a university-wide centre for urban research that brings together research groups from various disciplines. His main research interest is in the politics of urban development and the analysis of urban development strategies and their effects. Theoretically, this has led to contributions on cultural (political) economy and regulation theory, urban laboratories and experimentation, innovation and the knowledge economy. Empirically, most of his work to date is situated within one of two areas: (i) research on the cultural and creative industries and urban cultural policy; and (ii) research on university-city relations and the role of higher education in urban and regional development.

Myanmar. The elections in November 2010 and the adoption of a new constitution have fundamentally changed Myanmar’s political system.


Since March 2011 Myanmar has again officially had a civilian government, which after years of political and economic isolation has introduced initial reforms towards democratisation and opening up the economy. In light of these reform efforts, the European Union has lifted the sanctions on Myanmar, with the exception of the arms embargo and the embargo on equipment that could be used for internal repression. This has enabled Germany to resume its involvement after suspending activities for nearly twenty years.

During a visit to Myanmar in February 2012 German Federal Minister Niebel announced that German development cooperation will be further expanded in the priority area of sustainable economic development.
