    [01] Internal Market : Commission outlines new strategy

    A proposed framework outlining strategic objectives for the European Union's (EU) Internal Market over the next five years has been presented in a consultative Communication adopted by the European Commission. The Commission considers that these objectives should be improving the quality of life of citizens, enhancing the efficiency of the EU's product and capital markets, improving the business environment and exploiting the achievements of the Internal Market in a changing world. Following consultations with the European Parliament, the Council of Ministers and other interested parties, which will include a hearing on 29 October in Brussels and conclude on 7 November, the Commission will finalise the strategic objectives and present a list of specific short-term actions to meet these objectives with a view to reaching agreement on the overall strategy at the Helsinki European Council in December 1999. The Commission proposes that the short-term target actions should be updated annually, taking into account the actual functioning of product and capital markets and feedback received from citizens and business on their experiences with the Internal Market.

    [02] La Commission adopte trois communications sur la compétitivité industrielle

    La Commission européenne a adopté trois communications sur la compétitivité industrielle. La communication "Changement structurel et ajustement dans l'industrie manufacturière européenne" est la contribution de la Commission au débat sur la compétitivité industrielle et analyse, à travers le niveau de spécialisation et la concentration géographique, l'adaptabilité de l'industrie européenne. Le troisième rapport annuel sur la compétitivité de l'industrie européenne qui sert de base à la Communication sera publié le 9 novembre 1999. Les deux autres communications sectorielles portent, l'une, sur la filière bois et ses industries dérivées et, l'autre, sur l'industrie sidérurgique.
