Announcing the Alavan Independent Facebook page

The political risk analysis part of Alavan is in the process of going through some changes this year in terms of the way in which our service is delivered. These will be rolled out in the coming weeks when we shall be writing and speaking direct to clients.

One early step has occurred today, ie the creation of an ‘Alavan Independent’ Facebook page, which will, from here on, be where we post on political and geopolitical issues as far as social media are concerned.

The page will concentrate on brief and speedy comment on topical happenings – and how they are reported in the mainstream media. It goes without saying that comment on and discussion of such events is greatly welcomed.
So, if you are interested in seeing/continuing to see the sort of political commentary we have to date been posting on Alastair’s personal page, please sign up to follow Alavan Independent.
