Defence

Towards the next Defence and Security Review: part two - Nato: third report of session 2014-15: report, together with minutes relating to the report.

House of Commons papers (2014-15) - 358.
Corporate Author:
Defence Committee
Author:
James Arbuthnot (chairman)

Recent events in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine should be a wake-up call for NATO and the UK. NATO has serious deficiencies in its command and control structures, in its ability to predict and give adequate warning of potential attack, and in the readiness of its forces. NATO may not have the collective political will to take concerted action to deter attack. Russian Federation actions in Ukraine have now raised the prospect, however unlikely, of a Russian attack on a NATO Member State. NATO needs to reorder, train and exercise its capabilities to be able to defend against both eventualities. The UK Government needs to take the lead at the NATO Summit in Wales in September to ensure that NATO is ready to face such threats. The Committee's specific recommendations call for: pre-positioning of military equipment in the Baltic States; a continuous presence of NATO troops on training and exercises in the Baltic; re-establishment of large-scale military exercises including all NATO Member States and involving political decision makers; improvements to the NATO rapid reaction force and the possible establishment of a new Standing Reserve Force for NATO; improvements to processes for warning of imminent attack; radical improvements in Russian expertise in the UK government, allowing for real analysis and assessment of the Russian threat; development of new tactics to respond to the threat of "ambiguous" attacks from Russia - including how to counter threats from cyber, information warfare, and irregular militia; and a reconsideration of Article 5, to allow response to less conventional attacks.

Korea 2014.

OECD economic surveys 2014/10.
Corporate Author:
Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

Korea has been among the fastest growing OECD countries during the past decade. However, subdued growth during 2011-12 revealed structural problems, such as high household debt, a lagging service sector and weak small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This has raised concerns about Korea's traditional catch-up strategy led by exportsproduced by large chaebol companies. In addition, Korea has experienced a rise in relative poverty and income inequality since 1997, although both have fallen recently. The new growth strategy aims at fostering a 'creative economy', in which venture businesses play a key role, accompanied by greater emphasis on social cohesion, including increased social spending and a roadmap to boost employment. Such initiatives will support the currentupturn, while promoting Korea's long-term convergence to the most advanced countries and enhancing social cohesion and well-being.

Medium-term gas market report 2014: market analysis and forecasts to 2019.

Corporate Author:
International Energy Agency

The IEA Medium-Term Gas Market Report 2014 gives a detailed analysis of demand, supply and trade developments as well as infrastructure investments to meet the 2.2% annual growth in gas demand expected through 2019. It investigates the important changes that will transform the industry: rising regional disparities between gas-hungry regions such as China and the Middle East against weakening growth in the Former Soviet Union (FSU) and Europe; competition between FSU supplies and LNG from the United States and Australia, notably in Europe and Asia; the shift towards net imports in non-OECD Asia and Latin America; and uncertainty over whether Europe can ease its dependency on Russian gas. Besides enhanced coverage of gas in the power sector, this year's report features special focuses on the potential of gas in maritime transport; the competition between oil and gas to meet fast-growing power consumption in the Middle East; the implications of Iran's possible return to the international gas scene; and the interplay of natural gas liquids and natural gas in the United States.

The OECD Green Growth Strategy supports countries in fostering economic growth and development while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which well-being relies. Policies that promote green growth need to be founded on a good understanding of the determinants of green growth and need to be supported with appropriate indicators to monitor progress and gauge results. This book updates the 2011 Towards Green Growth: Monitoring progress. It presents the OECD framework for monitoring progress towards green growth and a selection of updated indicators that illustrate the progress that OECD countries have made since the 1990s.
