On the verge of its 25th anniversary, The Baltic Course leaves business media market

30.12.2020.

What an irony of the destiny that in the year of its 25th anniversary an international magazine The Baltic Course is leaving the market of mass media.

This is not a bankruptcy, our small firm doesn’t have a single debt, not even to the state.
