  • [01] La formation est essentielle pour trouver et garder un emploi

    Le rôle majeur que jouent l'enseignement et la formation professionnelle en vue d'aider les jeunes Européens à trouver et à garder un emploi est souligné dans un rapport publié aujourd'hui par la Direction Générale XXII (Education, Formation et Jeunesse) de la Commission européenne, Eurostat (l'Office statistique des Communautés européennes) et le Cedefop (Centre européen pour le développement de la formation professionnelle). Le rapport montre que les jeunes qui ont suivi une formation professionnelle complémentaire bénéficient de meilleures chances sur le marché du travail. Chez les jeunes de 20 à 29 ans, dans cette catégorie, le taux de chômage représente moins de la moitié de celui observé chez ceux qui n'ont suivi que l'enseignement de base. Ils semblent aussi bénéficier d'une plus grande sécurité de l'emploi.

    [02] Commission welcomes report on peace and reconciliation programme for Northern Ireland

    A report on the Special Support Programme for Peace and Reconciliation in Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland has been presented today to the President of the European Commission, Jacques Santer, and to Monika Wulf-Mathies, Commissioner responsible for Regional Policies, by Northern Ireland's Members of the European Parliament, Dr I. Paisley, Mr J. Hume and Mr J. Nicholson. The report reviews experience to date, supports continued European Union (EU) assistance for the Programme at its present level of ECU 100 million per annum, in 1998 and 1999, and makes several recommendations concerning the implementation of the second phase of the Programme. Welcoming the report, President Santer and Commissioner Wulf- Mathies said: "The MEPs and their advisers have prepared a valuable review of the Programme based on widespread consultations at local level. Their support for the Commission's proposal that EU assistance be continued at its present level is welcome and we are hopeful that the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament will include ECU 100 million for the Programme in the 1998 budget. The recommendations in the report which suggest ways to strengthen and improve the Programme will be carefully considered by the Commission and by the Programme Monitoring Committee when it carries out the Mid-Term Review in the near future."

    [03] Commission approves the acquisition by DuPont of ICI polyester and titanium dioxide businesses

    The European Commission has cleared the acquisition by DuPont de Nemours and Company ("DuPont") of the polyester and titanium dioxide ("TiO2") businesses of Imperial Chemical Industries Plv. ("ICI"). In particular in relation to the effects of this operation on the markets for PET film and TiO2 the Commission considers that no creation or strengthening of a dominant position will result from the operation. In the PET film business DuPont and ICI's activities overlap only to a certain extent, and they are not perceived as competitors by customers for a large range of products. Moreover, a sufficient grade of competition is guaranteed in this market by competitors within and outside Western Europe. As regards TiO2, despite becoming by far market leader both in Europe and world-wide, the merging entity will still be faced to a number of important competitors all with extensive world-wide activity.
