  • [01] La Commission propose de reconduire pour deux ans les contingents de production de fécule de pomme de terre

    Se fondant sur un rapport relatif au régime des contingents applicables la production de fécule de pomme de terre dans l'Union européenne, la Commission européenne a adopté aujourd'hui une proposition visant étendre les contingents actuels aux campagnes de commercialisation 2005/2006 et 2006/2007. Cette proposition de statu quo repose sur le fait qu'il est encore trop tôt pour apprécier les effets de la réforme de la politique agricole commune et de l'élargissement de l'UE sur le secteur de la fécule de pomme de terre.

    [02] EU electronic communications markets : outlook good, but more progress needed on regulatory reform

    The EU electronic communications sector is showing signs of intensifying competition and strong growth in some segments. Progress in implementing the regulatory package has been good, but more work is needed if Europe is to reap the benefits of a fully competitive sector, says the European Commission's latest report on the implementation of the EU electronic communications regulatory package, adopted today. This report, which for the first time covers 25 Member States, highlights the strong expansion of mobile and broadband communications. Despite progress on reform, the Commission is concerned that delays and ineffective application in some Member States could hinder competition, innovation and investment.

    [03] EU-China Summit : new steps in a growing relationship

    At the 7th Annual EU-China Summit, which takes place on 8 December in The Hague, the European Union and China will further strengthen their maturing strategic partnership. The EU will raise topics including the fight against illegal migration, and human rights, and discussions will also focus on economic issues including the Doha Development Round, Textiles and other trade concerns. A number of international issues including North Korea and Burma/ Myanmar will also feature. A joint declaration will be signed on non- proliferation and arms control and agreements will also be concluded on customs co-operation, and science and technology. It is hoped that agreement can also be reached on joint research on the peaceful use of nuclear energy. The European Commission will be represented by President José Manuel Barroso, Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, Benita Ferrero-Waldner, and Commissioner for External Trade, Peter Mandelson. The Chinese delegation will be led by Prime Minister Wen Jiabao.

    [04] Fiscalité et douanes : la Commission lance un nouveau site web

    La Commission européenne a réorganisé son site web consacré la fiscalité et l'Union douanière afin d'offrir une information plus complète sur les politiques fiscale et douanière de l'UE et sur leurs aspects pratiques. Si vous êtes une entreprise et que vous souhaitez connaître les taux de TVA et les règles pratiques en vigueur dans les 25 Etats membres, ou les taux et les règles applicables aux produits du tabac, l'alcool ou aux huiles minérales, ou simplement valider votre numéro d'identification la TVA, alors ce nouveau site - qui est devenu un "guichet unique" - répondra tous vos besoins. Ce site présente également une large gamme d'informations concernant les règles douanières et les tarifs pour l'importation de produits dans l'Union européenne. Les particuliers peuvent utilement consulter les sections du site consacrées aux "voyageurs", la taxation des véhicules et aux impôts des personnes physiques.

    [05] Stavros Dimas meets major environmental NGOs at the start of his mandate

    Seeking an active and constructive relationship with all stakeholders, European Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas invited 9 key representatives of NGOs working in the environmental field (the "G9" group) for a first discussion today. Topics discussed included the ratification of the Aarhus convention, the UN meeting on climate change starting today in Buenos Aires as well as the issues on the agenda of the next Environmental Council on 20th December.
