  • [01] Bomb blast in Jakarta : message of condolences from Romano Prodi to Sukarnoputri Megawati

    The President of the European Commission, Romano Prodi, has sent the following message to the President of Indonesia, Sukarnoputri Megawati : "It was with horror and great sadness that I learnt about the bomb blast at the Marriott Hotel in Jakarta which claimed innocent lives and injured so many people. On behalf of the European Commission and on my own behalf, allow me to offer to you and to the people of Indonesia our sincere condolences, and the expression of our deepest sympathy and solidarity with the families of the victims."

    [02] Commission gives Microsoft last opportunity to comment before concluding its antitrust probe

    The European Commission has given Microsoft a final opportunity to comment before it concludes its antitrust probe. The Commission has gathered additional evidence from a wide variety of consumers, suppliers and competitors. This evidence confirms and in many respects bolsters the Commission's earlier finding that Microsoft is leveraging its dominant position from the PC into low-end servers and that Microsoft's tying of Windows Media Player to the Windows PC operating system weakens competition on the merits, stifles product innovation, and ultimately reduces consumer choice. The Commission also invites Microsoft to submit its comments on a series of remedies it intends to impose in order to bring the antitrust infringements it has identified to an end. As this complex investigation draws to a close, the Commission will continue to ensure a meticulous respect of due process. Therefore, the Commission has addressed to Microsoft a final Statement of Objections.

    [03] Troisième estimation pour le premier trimestre 2003 : le PIB de la zone euro et de l'UE15 en hausse de 0,1% ; +0,9% et +1,1% respectivement par rapport au premier trimestre 2002

    Selon les estimations publiées aujourd'hui par Eurostat, le Produit Intérieur Brut (PIB) de la zone euro et celui de l'UE15 ont augmenté de 0, 1% au cours du premier trimestre 2003. Ces résultats font suite à une croissance de 0,1% tant dans la zone euro que dans l'UE15 au cours du quatrième trimestre 2002. En comparaison avec le premier trimestre 2002, le PIB de la zone euro et celui de l'UE15 ont augmenté respectivement de 0,9% et 1,1%, après des hausses de 1,2% et 1,4% au cours du trimestre précédent.
