  • [01] Jacques Santer au Japon: sommet euro-japonais et visite officielle

    Le Président Santer se rendra au Japon du 30 septembre au 4 octobre pour participer au Sommet annuel UE/Japon et effectuer une visite officielle dans ce pays pendant laquelle il sera reçu en audience par l'Empereur. Le 5ème Sommet euro-japonais réunira à Tokyo le Premier Ministre du Japon, M. Ryutaro Hashimoto, le Président du Conseil de l'UE, M. John Bruton, et le Président de la Commission européenne, ainsi que Sir Leon Brittan, Commissaire responsable des relations avec le Japon. Les travaux du Sommet couvriront un large éventail de thèmes dans le cadre du dialogue politique et des relations bilatérales. Les questions multilatérales seront aussi à l'ordre du jour, notamment en vue de la préparation de la Conférence Ministérielle de l'OMC à Singapour en décembre. Pendant sa visite officielle de quatre jours, Jacques Santer aura également une rencontre bilatérale avec le Premier Ministre et rencontrera des personnalités japonaises des millieux politiques, économiques et universitaires à Tokyo, Osaka et Kyoto.

    [02] Commission clears the non-military aspects of a joint venture between British Aerospace and Lagardère

    The European Commission has cleared the formation of a joint venture between British Aerospace and Lagardère in the areas of guided weapons and associated weapons systems. The clearance relates to the non-military aspects of the joint venture for areas such as: precision optical engineering, robotic control units, space system structures, mechanisms and antennae, environmental and electromagnetic testing, electronics and microelectronics applications. The combined market shares being low, the Commission has decided that the operation does not create or strengthen a dominant position on any market. The military aspects of the transaction have not been notified to the Commission following instructions to the two companies by the United Kingdom and French governments relying on Article 223 of the Treaty. The Commission has found these instructions acceptable.

    [03] An opportunity for European business managers to travel to Japan

    European business managers employed by companies with a strong interest in exporting to Japan, but with little or no experience in the Japanese market, will have the opportunity to travel to Japan with the Export to Japan Study Programme (EJSP). EJSP is managed and financed by JETRO, the Japan External Trade Organisation. The European Commission has been offered places by JETRO in the framework of the joint EU/Japan Trade Cooperation Programme. During their stay in Japan, participants are given a broad introduction to Japanese business culture through presentations, meetings and field trips. They will also learn about the export opportunities which await their companies. More detailed information, as well as application forms, are available on request from Mrs Wallis Goelen, European Commission, Directorate-General I-F-1, rue de la Loi 200 (B-28 6/119), B-1049 Brussels.

    [04] EU/Yemen: seventh joint co-operation committee meeting

    The seventh meeting of the European Union-Yemen Joint Co-operation Committee took place in Sana'a, Yemen, on 19 September 1996. The meeting was the first occasion for a full EU delegation comprising the European Commission and all 15 Member States to go to Yemen to manifest EC support for Yemen's unification, democratisation and economic policies of liberalisation and structural adjustment. Given the positive results of the Yemeni reform process in the last two years, the Commission sees the talks in Sana'a as a starting point for an overall strengthening of EU-Yemen relations. Apart from intensifying development co-operation through related instruments such as financial and technical assistance and food security aid during the critical first phase of Structural Adjustment Programme implementation (1996-1998), the Commission has declared its preparedness to propose to EU Member States an extension of EU-Yemen contractual relations.

    [05] Neil Kinnock calls for close integration of national transport policies

    In a speech today to the Irsih Belgian Business Association, Transport Commissioner Neil Kinnock calls for closer integration of national transport policies and urges additional spending for the TransEuropean Transport Networks saying: "Just as in the last century the creation of national single markets required compatible transport systems and common rules, so in our generation a growing international Single Market needs must the same. If we are really serious about building a wider Europe, integration our economies and increasing competitiveness, the dislocations that came from inadequate infrastructure and fragmented administration must be overcome."
