  • [01] Playing for Europe : football stars unite to celebrate 50 years of the European Union

    The best of European football will be on show in Manchester on 13 March to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signature of the Treaty of Rome setting up the modern-day European Union. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of their participation as the first English team to play UEFA's European club competition, Manchester United will play a Europe XI to be coached by Italian World Cup winner Marcello Lippi. The Europe XI squad includes many of the Italian World Cup winning squad, Barcelona and Liverpool Captains, Carles Puyol and Steven Gerrard. Three Brazilian stars, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo and Juninho Pernambucano will also play as guests for the Europe XI.

    [02] Services financiers : la Commission adopte des mesures complémentaires en matière de transparence des entreprises

    La Commission européenne a adopté des mesures complétant le cadre juridique de l'UE établi par la directive relative aux obligations de transparence des entreprises cotées en bourse (2004/109/CE). Cette décision fait suite un vote positif du Comité européen des valeurs mobilières et au soutien ferme apporté par le Parlement européen le 24 octobre 2006. La directive sur la transparence et ses mesures d'exécution amélioreront la qualité de l'information mise la disposition des investisseurs concernant les performances des entreprises, leur position financière ainsi que les changements modifiant les participations importantes.

    [03] Evaluation of the Single European Sky reveals positive impacts on air traffic management in Europe

    The European Commission has published an independent evaluation of the impact of the Single European Sky (SES) initiative on air traffic management performance. This document will assist the Commission to prepare a formal report on the Single European Sky to the European Parliament and the Council later this year.

    [04] La fiscalité en faveur du développement durable : les 19 et 20 mars se tiendra le premier Forum fiscal de Bruxelles organisé par la Commission

    M. Lászl Kovács, membre de la Commission européenne chargé de la fiscalité et de l'union douanière organise actuellement avec le Directorate General le premier Forum fiscal de Bruxelles, qui se déroulera les 19 et 20 mars et aura pour thème "La fiscalité en faveur du développement durable". Les promoteurs de cette première conférence souhaitent voir désormais se réunir chaque année Bruxelles des décideurs politiques, des experts, des professionnels et de simples particuliers venus du monde entier pour débattre de questions fiscales intéressantes sur le plan politique et du point de vue de l'intérêt général. Cette année, on parlera surtout de ce que la fiscalité peut apporter au développement durable et on se demandera comment elle peut promouvoir la réalisation d'objectifs politiques, notamment dans des domaines tels que l'environnement et l'énergie.

    [05] Statement by Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn, on the high level meeting in Vienna on the future status of Kosovo (10/03)

    "Today's high-level talks in Vienna concluded the negotiations held over the last 14 months between United Nations Office of the Special Envoy for Kosovo (UNOSEK) and the concerned parties on the future status of Kosovo. I wish to thank President Ahtisaari for his untiring efforts and leadership throughout this process. I fully support his intention to present his final proposal to the UN Security Council in the course of this month. President Ahtisaari's settlement proposal is a realistic compromise, given the parties' irreconcilable positions on Kosovo's status. It provides a framework for a future stable, democratic and multi-ethnic Kosovo. I welcome the importance given in the settlement proposal to the protection of rights of communities, the right of return for all displaced persons, the protection of cultural and religious sites and the provisions of decentralisation. A sustainable solution of Kosovo's status is needed, without further delay. The Commission remains fully committed to helping to bring the status process through to completion during the next phase in the United Nations. The status settlement will have to be anchored in a clear European perspective, so as to enhance stability in Kosovo and in the wider region."

    [06] Outcome of the meeting of the Committee on Fisheries of the UN FAO (09/03, Rome)

    European Commissioner Joe Borg, responsible for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, has welcomed the outcome of the 27th session of the Committee on Fisheries (COFI) of the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation, which concluded on Friday 9th March in Rome. "The priorities adopted by the FAO Committee for the next two years are very much in line with our own international agenda. This is particularly the case with regard to the importance we attach to combating Illegal, Unregulated and Unreported (IUU) fishing and on protecting the marine environment on the high seas. The support of the international community for this task validates our strategy as one which can bring states together, and as such achieve real progress in ensuring concerted action in relation to international law in these crucial areas."
