  • [01] General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean builds on last year's progress towards sustainability in the region

    The European Commission has welcomed the measures adopted by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) to promote sustainable fisheries and aquaculture in the region at its annual general meeting, in Rome, last week. The Commission, on behalf of the Union, led the process that will offer greater protection to fisheries resources, improve the application of existing measures, enhance the development of reproductive aquaculture, continue to support the regional projects and develop new initiatives to increase cooperation in fisheries management in the Black Sea. This will be made possible thanks to the decisions that will now secure the administrative and budgetary basis of the GFCM making it fully operational.

    [02] La Commission donne son feu vert au projet d'acquisition de C-Map par Boeing

    La Commission européenne a autorisé, en vertu du règlement CE sur les concentrations, le projet d'acquisition de C-Map, une société italienne de fabrication de cartes marines électroniques, par la société américaine Boeing. La Commission a conclu que l'opération n'entraverait pas de manière significative une concurrence effective dans l'Espace Economique Européen ou dans une partie substantielle de celui-ci.

    [03] Commission approves proposed acquisition of Ingman Foods by Arla

    The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of Ingman Foods, a Finnish supplier of dairy products, by the Swedish company Arla. After examining the operation, the Commission concluded that the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area or any substantial part of it.

    [04] Janez Potočnik makes first official visit to Israel (17-18/01)

    European Science & Research Commissioner Janez Potočnik will make his first official visit to Israel on 17 and 18 January. Israel has been a fully associated member of the EU's research funding programmes since 1996 and both the EU and Israel have benefited from this partnership. During his visit, Commissioner Potočnik will meet members of the Israeli government and will attend a conference on Israel's participation in the EU's research programme FP7 at Bar Ilan University. He will also meet with representatives of the Israel academic and business communities. His discussions with Israel will focus on ongoing negotiations to finalise Israel's association to FP7, and highlighting the importance of research as an element of the overall EU-Israel relationship.

    [05] Commission holds informal meeting on bird hunting in Malta (17/01)

    Tomorrow in Brussels the European Commission is hosting an informal meeting with the Maltese authorities regarding bird hunting in Malta. The Federation of Associations for Hunting and Conservation of the EU (FACE), the Maltese Hunting Federation (FKNK- FACE Malta), Birdlife International and Birdlife Malta have been invited to participate in this meeting as observers. The meeting is intended to clarify the provisions of the EU's 1979 Birds Directive regarding three specific aspects related to bird hunting in Malta: the hunting of birds during their spring migration; the trapping of certain bird species; and the illegal shooting of birds. The meeting is in line with the EU's Sustainable Hunting Initiative, which favours dialogue and conflict resolution between hunting and nature protection organisations. Since signing a 2004 Agreement on sustainable hunting at EU level, FACE and Birdlife have been the key contacts of the Commission in the context of correct implementation of the hunting provisions under EU law.
