FILE PHOTO: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un attends a meeting of the Political Bureau of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers Party in Pyongyang, in this undated photo supplied by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on December 30, 2020. With North Korea’s economy already under siege from international sanctions imposed over its nuclear weapons programme, last year the country was further buffeted by damaging floods and an economically devastating lockdown aimed at preventing a coronavirus outbreak. Economic policy is one area where there appears to be real factions within the North Korean government. In the unofficial market in capital Pyongyang, North Korean won’s value has risen some 17.5% and 15.2% against the dollar and Chinese yuan over the three past months, according to data compiled by Daily NK. And smugglers, who analysts say are essential if North Korea is to alleviate the worst social consequences of the border closure, have instead been accused of anti-state actions.

In October, North Korea unveiled new military hardware in a parade marking the 75th anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea. But before those missiles appeared at the end of the parade, North Korea's impressive modernization of its conventional forces was on full display. North Korea's armored force has long consisted of old Soviet models or slightly modified domestic copies. But a completely new armored combat vehicle and a new tank show that North Korea's armored force is headed in a new direction. North Korea troops celebrate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea on October 10, 2020.

This, though, is no ordinary Balsam, but rather forestry's answer to an ubermensch: the "SMART" tree, or "Senescent Modulated Accession Regulated Technologies."

In December, Italian-American carmaker Fiat Chrysler (FCA) and France’s PSA agreed to combine in a $38 billion all-share deal, uniting brands such as Fiat, Jeep, Dodge, Ram and Maserati with the likes of Peugeot, Opel, Citroen and DS. Such a move could concentrate Stellantis’ voting power in a small number of shareholders, making management changes and takeover attempts more difficult, they added. PSA and FCA have filed the merger plan with antitrust authorities in 21 countries and the European Union.

Banco BPM CEO Giuseppe Castagna reaffirmed his bank's interest in exploring tie-ups in response to comments by Carlo Cimbri, head of BPER's biggest shareholder Unipol UNPI.MI, that the idea of a Banco BPM deal with BPER was "fascinating." Castagna said by email that Banco BPM would always consider tie-ups with a strong industrial rational and fit to boost value for shareholders. In the meantime, Banco BPM had widened ongoing commercial discussions with Credit Agricole CAGR.PA to assess a potential merger, but discussions have stalled, sources said. A merger deal between Banco BPM and BPER collapsed at the last minute in 2007 but a tie-up has since remained a possibility. “Banco BPM is a much better deal than Monte dei Paschi.
