Dear readers,
Due to budgetary constraints and the need to reduce costs (in particular for postal services), Matica magazine will offer more frequent double issues in the course of the year. I am confident that this will not in any significant way impair the quality of the magazine or the level of information we provide to our readers. We intend to return to the normal schedule of monthly issues as soon as possible.
CHF Director Marin Knezović
