Zorionak and our best wishes: the bulletin will return on February 1 to its daily appointment with our readers

12/30/2016

Urte Berri On and our Best Wishes to you our readers, diasporakides, and Basques everywhere

Best regards, our friend/reader. With the end of this year, our project has completed over 15 years online and has seen 16 end/ beginnings of the year. This time the end of 2016 was not so good, but facing the new year we strive to remain optimistic with the idea that 2017 will bring us new opportunities. It has been a bad year in economic terms, but it has provided us the opportunity to feel and value the warmth of solidarity in the face of the hard blow that the non-renewal of the support traditionally provided by the Provincial Government of Gipuzkoa for the bulletin meant. Our priority will be to increase our revenues and recover that partnership.
