  • [01] La Commission proposera un plan d'action de recherche sur l'ESB et la maladie de Creutzfeld-Jakob

    La Commission européenne suggèrera au Conseil européen de Florence un plan d'action visant à accélérer les travaux de recherche sur l'encéphalopathie spongiforme bovine (ESB) et les maladies à prions. Compte tenu des incertitudes scientifiques qui subsistent, ce thème doit devenir une priorité de recherche que la Commission entend traiter au plus vite. Une proposition formelle sera examinée par la Commission après le Conseil européen.

    [02] Commission approves the merger of Sun Alliance Group and Royal Insurance

    The European Commission has approved the merger of the two UK composite insurers Sun Alliance and Royal Insurance. The activities of both companies are in the life and non-life insurance sectors, and, whilst centred in the UK, involve significant overseas operations.

    [03] Textile/habillement: vers une stratégie européenne

    Le forum textile/habillement réuni le 19 juin à Bruxelles à l'invitation de Martin Bangemann, Commissaire chargé des Affaires industrielles, a décidé la création de trois groupes de travail. Ces groupes, composés de représentants des associations de l'industrie, des syndicats, des gouvernements et de la Commission présenteront avant la fin de l'année les propositions d'une stratégie européenne pour le secteur. Les travaux seront concentrés sur l'amélioration de la compétitivité de l'industrie européenne, les relations commerciales avec les pays tiers et un volet interne couvrant le fonctionnement du marché intérieur, les aides d'état et la coopération des entreprises à l'intérieur de l'Union.

    [04] Rail experts warn: "Railways must change or die"

    The European Commission, on June 19th 1996, published a report on the future of rail transport in Europe prepared by an advisory group comprising railway operators, users, and unions. The group was convened by the Commission in May to advise the Commission in its preparation of a White Paper on a strategy for rail renaissance in Europe. Despite earlier measures to ensure that better use is made of rail infrastructures, the share of rail in Europe's transport market is declining. Statistics suggest that in Germany, for example, the average German makes a trip by train just twice a year. Certain sectors of the rail freight market risk becoming obsolete by the year 2010 on present trends.
