  • [01] Actions de promotion et de publicité dans le secteur du lait et des produits laitiers

    La Commission européenne a approuvé 19 programmes d'action relatifs à la promotion de la consommation dans l'Union européenne et à l'élargissement des marchés du lait et des produits laitiers. Le coût total de ces mesures de promotion est de 8 millions d'euros et elles sont financées à 100% par la Commission. Les programmes qui sont retenus sont ciblés principalement sur les jeunes jusqu'à 25 ans et les thèmes principaux à développer sont "la nutrition" et/ou "la modernité". Les actions débuteront en décembre 1999 pour une durée d'un an.

    [02] Commission initiates recovery procedure in the Berthelot case

    Mr Philippe Busquin, European Commissioner for Research, in agreement with Ms Michaele Schreyer, Commissioner for Budget, has initiated the procedure for the recovery of the indemnities paid by the Commission to Mr Berthelot during his term in 1995-1997 as scientific visitor in DG Research and the Joint Research Center.

    [03] Statement by Chris Patten, European Commissioner for External Relations, on 'Energy for Democracy'

    "I am concerned to hear of the continued delay in the processing through customs at the border of the initial shipment of heating oil for Nis and Pirot under the EU's 'Energy for Democracy' scheme. The EU has moved swiftly to make available this oil, which is badly needed by Nis and Pirot. The longer the Serbian authorities take to process this delivery, the longer the citizens of Nis and Pirot will go without heating. If the FRY authorities are as concerned as they claim to be about the heating situation facing their people, I am sure they will do everything in their power to get the oil to its destination. The people of Nis and Pirot will find it hard to understand if their own authorities stand between them and heating this winter."

    [04] Poul Nielson heads mission to assess needs in East and West Timor

    Poul Nielson, European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid, heads a mission November 28-December 3 to assess needs in East and West Timor, and to meet the authorities in Indonesia. Mr Nielson's mission will visit refugee camps in West Timor, then travel to Dili for meetings with United Nations agencies and non-governmental agencies, as well as with the Timorese authorities. There will also be visits to projects co-funded by the European Commission Humanitarian Office (ECHO). Finally, Mr Nielson will visit Jakarta for meetings with the Indonesian authorities to secure ongoing cooperation.
