Current events

US presidential election

It was decided that FICT will remain neutral regarding the head of state of the United States of America, but that the member states of FICT may adapt their foreign policies as they see fit.

Brexit

Some member states expressed their intention to increase trade with the United Kingdom following that country's intended secession from the European Union, where as some European member states may adapt their relationship with the European Union. Again, no formal statement will be made on behalf of FICT itself.

Elaboration of the Juridical Committee of the Forum (JCF)

In accordance with article 27 and 28d of the Treaty of Ísðor, a draft regulation will be made of the JCF regulations which will be presented to the governments of the member states at the latest in April 2017. One point of discussion was if there should be (a pool of) permanent stand-by judges (and if they will be paid a stand-by fee or not) or if a judical committee will be created only whenever one is needed.

Scheduling of the next General Assembly

The next meeting of the GA will be held on 6 May 2017 in Ísðor (Yukland), in accordance with the system of rotation: Forum_for_International_Cooperation_and_Trade_(FICT)#List_of_Meetings_of_the_General_Assembly
