Impressed by the EU

Posted on:March 31 2008

Generally I don't like the European Union. But I'm totally impressed by their administrative offices. Try it out yourself: Simply write an email to one of them. You will receive an answer within just a few hours. And the best: You will get the answer clearly written in your native language - no matter in what country the office is, may it be Spain or for example Belgium.
Really impressive. Especially if you compare this to the incredible slow reaction times of Austrian officials, who would need months for this. But I don't want to start thinking about how much overhead it is to have translators for all 23 official EU languages sitting in every office..

This system is amazing and the overhead is really mind blowing. But anyway it is better this way, may be.
