  • [01] Insurance and investment intermediaries: Commission reports on professional indemnity insurance rules

    The European Commission has adopted a report to the European Parliament and Council on the continued appropriateness of the requirements for professional indemnity insurance (PII) imposed on certain financial services intermediaries under EU law. This report is required under Article 65(6) of the Directive 2004/39/EC on markets in financial instruments (MIFID).

    [02] Ferrero-Waldner meets UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon

    The European Commissioner for External Relations and Neighbourhood Policy, Benita Ferrero-Waldner, will visit the United Nations Headquarters in New York on 13 April to meet the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, UN Deputy Secretary General Asha-Rose Migiro, Under-Secretary General for Peacekeeping Operations, Jean-Marie Guéhenno and Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs, B. Lynn Pascoe. During her meetings with the UN representatives, Commissioner Ferrero-Waldner will discuss a range of key international issues, including the Middle East, Kosovo, Sudan and DRC, as well as a number of situations in Asia.  She will also have an exchange of views with her interlocutors on the state of the UN reform process. On the eve of her visit, Benita Ferrero-Waldner said: "The EU’s long-standing relationship with the UN is at a very important stage. Today, our commitment to the UN goes well beyond the traditional strong financial support in the areas of development and humanitarian assistance. It is based on strongly convergent objectives in many areas and translates into an active partnership with the UN in policy, normative and operational work. The EU and the UN need each other today more than ever.” This is the first time that Commissioner Ferrero-Waldner has visited the UN since Ban Ki-moon was appointed its Secretary General last December.

    [03] Deuxième estimation pour le quatrième trimestre 2006 - Le PIB de la zone euro et celui de l’UE25 en hausse de 0,9% - +3,3% et +3,5% respectivement par rapport au quatrième trimestre 2005

    Au cours du quatrième trimestre 2006, le PIB de la zone euro (ZE12) et celui de l’UE25 ont augmenté de 0,9% par rapport au trimestre précédent, selon les estimations révisées publiées par Eurostat.

    [05] Benita Ferrero-Waldner, European Commissioner for External Relations and European Nieghbourhood Policy, said following today's bomb attacks in Algeria

    "I wish to express my deepest sympathy to the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria and my condolences to the families of those affected by these terrible attacks. This type of act is barbaric and does not achieve any purpose. Algeria can count on Europe for its support in the fight against terrorism, which today is a world wide problem, provided it is in accordance with the rule of law and respect for human rights. I will reiterate this support and pass on my condolences personally to the Algerian authorities at the next EU-Algeria Association Council meeting which takes place on 24 April in Luxembourg."
