  • [01] Padraig Flynn commente les chiffres d'Eurostat sur la répartition du revenu et de la pauvreté

    L'Office statistique des Communautés européennes, Eurostat, a publié aujourd'hui une étude intitulée "Statistiques en bref: répartition du revenu et pauvreté dans l'Europe des Douze en 1993" qui cerne la réalité complexe de la pauvreté et de la disparité des revenus dans l'Union européenne (UE). Les chiffres révèlent qu'un citoyen et un ménage sur six vivent en dessous du seuil de pauvreté et que plus d'un tiers des ménages pauvres travaillent. Padraig Flynn, commissaire en charge de l'emploi et des affaires sociales, a déclaré que les conclusions du rapport l'ont convaincu de la nécessité de poursuivre, au niveau européen, un dialogue sur la pauvreté et l'exclusion avec les États membres, les partenaires sociaux et les représentants de la société civile.

    [02] Commission helps New Independent States (NIS) get oil and gas flowing: ECU 12 million committed this year

    The INOGATE (Interstate oil and gas to Europe) programme is holding its third working group on 14-16 May in Brussels. This Tacis Project is aimed at helping overcome the energy crisis which is crippling some of the former Soviet Republics, and improving producers ability to access European markets. In so doing it will prepare the ground for major investments by private companies and international financial institutions. For the first time, representatives of major oil and gas companies will join the working group. "It is essential to unlock these countries' vast economic potential. Over five years, we will devote no less then ECU 50 million to support technical assistance projects in this domain. We in Europe as the most important potential consumers, stand to benefit", commented European Commissioner Hans van den Broek responsible for relations with Central and Eastern European countries.
