  • [01] Jacques Santer: "1997 peut marquer un nouveau départ dans la lutte pour l'emploi"

    La stratégie cohérente et intégrée pour l'emploi qui se dessine portera ses fruits, à condition que les Chefs d'Etat et de gouvernement répondent concrètement aux vraies questions qui se posent. Tel est le message que Jacques Santer, Président de la Commission européenne, a exposé aujourd'hui devant le Parlement européen dans le cadre de son débat sur la préparation du Conseil européen spécial sur l'emploi. "L'essentiel de notre démarche, a dit Jacques Santer, ne réside pas dans le chiffre de 12 millions d'emplois qui pourraient être créés en cinq ans, mais dans les moyens que nous proposons pour y arriver." Le Conseil européen du 20 novembre devra fournir des réponses claires aux questions soulevées à travers les propositions de lignes directrices présentées par la Commission. Celles-ci devront déboucher sur des plans d'actions nationaux, "essentiels à mes yeux", a souligné Jacques Santer. "On ne peut manquer d'établir ici un parallélisme avec la coordination des politiques économiques dans le cadre de l'UEM", a-t-il insisté.

    [02] Commission supports urban renewal in Leeds

    The Yorkshire City of Leeds is to receive about ECU 4.5 million from the European Union's (EU) Structural Funds for urban renewal. The money comes from the EU's Urban initiative and is specifically targeted at the Chapeltown and Harehills area. It aims at stimulating measures to combat deprivation and exclusion which have separated the area from the new prosperity of Leeds and unlocking the talents and aspirations of local people in order to build on the tradition of enterprising activity in their many different communities. Under the programme, measures will create new employment opportunities, improve the quality of life for local people and increase confidence in the area. Over 200 jobs will be directly created and more than 100 local people will be trained to improve their job prospects.

    [03] Should Europe develop an independent satellite navigation system?

    The Commissioner for European Transport Policy, Neil Kinnock, today argued that a crucial question facing Europe was whether it should develop an independent satellite navigation system and positioning systems (GNSS). With the market in GNSS estimated to reach $ 50,000 million by the year 2005, Mr Kinnock told participants at the 4th World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems in Berlin that the European Union faces a key strategic choice: "My preference would be to develop a single global system with our international partners. But only on certain conditions ... if we are not convinced that such a global system is a realistic possibility, Europe must press ahead with its own system."
