  • [01] Humanitarian crises - 18 million beneficiaries of ECHO funding during 2000 Launching the latest Annual Review of the Humanitarian Aid Office (ECHO), Poul Nielson, European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid, has highlighted the vital role played by ECHO in delivering relief to victims of humanitarian tragedies. He reported that, during 2000, the euro 492 million managed by this Commission department had benefited 18 million people in 65 different countries in the world. "This aid is vital", he said, "in saving lives, alleviating misery and giving people a chance to rebuild following natural and man-made catastrophes." The report is available on: http://europa.eu.int/comm/echo/en/publicat/publications.htm or from the ECHO Information office (Telephone +32-2-2954400)
  • [02] Accord définitif sur la promotion des sources d'énergie renouvelables dans le marché de l'électricité Le Conseil des ministres a adopté définitivement la directive sur la promotion de l'électricité à partir de sources d'énergie renouvelables (SER) dans le marché intérieur d'électricité. Cette adoption formelle confirme l'accord obtenu entre le Parlement européen et le Conseil au mois de juillet au terme de la procédure de conciliation. Loyola de Palacio, vice-présidente de la Commission européenne en charge de l'Energie et des Transports, s'est félicitée de la prochaine entrée en vigueur de la directive, à peine un an après la proposition originelle de la Commission. Cette proposition vise à contribuer au respect des engagements de Kyoto et à atteindre l'objectif du doublement de la part d'énergie renouvelable dans la consommation d'énergie brute en Europe, pour la faire passer de 6% actuellement à 12% en 2010. Avec cette directive, les Etat membres s'engagent à respecter des objectifs nationaux de consommation future d'électricité produite par des sources d'énergie renouvelables, d'instaurer un système de certification d'origine de l'électricité verte, et de mettre en place des mesures d'accompagnement, visant à créer des conditions équitables et à faciliter la pénétration des SER sur le marché intérieur de l'électricité dans le respect des règles de la concurrence.
  • [03] Towards an EU-China maritime agreement Loyola de Palacio, European Commission Vice-President, in charge of Transport and Energy, and Huang Zhendong, Chinese Minister for Transport, announced on Friday 7 September their intention to promote as quickly as possible a far-reaching maritime agreement between the European Union and China. During a meeting held in Brussels, they underlined the importance of such an agreement which, in particular, will be based on the freedom to provide maritime services and free access to cargoes. "I think it is an historic moment in our bilateral maritime relations : this agreement will help us to consolidate into a legally binding framework the existing commercial maritime practices and yet develop even further our shipping relations", said Mrs de Palacio. This political decision marks the start of negotiations which will be formally launched on 13 and 14 September.
