  • [01] Statement by José Manuel Barroso on the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize

    Following the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize to Mr Albert Gore, the President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, made the following statement: "I congratulate Al Gore ant the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on the award of this year's Nobel Peace Prize. Their contributions to the prevention of climate change have raised awareness all over the world. Their work has been an inspiration for politicians and citizens alike. The European Union remains committed to its ambitious goals in the field. I call on all our partners to take this Nobel Peace Prize as an encouragement to approach this challenge even more swiftly, and decisively."

    [02] Environnement : lundi 15 octobre, à l'occasion de la journée internationale du blog, Stavros Dimas participera à une discussion en ligne sur internet

    Stavros Dimas, membre de la Commission européenne chargé de l'environnement, participera à une discussion en ligne sur internet le lundi 15 octobre, à l'occasion de la première journée internationale du blog, dédiée à l'environnement. La discussion aura lieu entre 14h00 et 17h00 sur le blog du Commissaire (<a href="http://blogs.ec.europa.eu/dimas/">http://blogs.ec.europa.eu/dimas/) et sera menée en anglais, en français, en allemand et en grec.

    [03] Commission approves proposed acquisition of Organon BS by Schering- Plough, subject to conditions

    The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of Organon BS of The Netherlands, a subsidiary of Akzo Nobel active worldwide in human and animal health, by the global pharmaceutical company Schering-Plough Corporation of the US, subject to conditions. The Commission found that the proposed transaction as initially notified would have given rise to competition concerns in twelve product areas and more than thirty relevant national markets. To address the Commission's concerns, SP offered to divest the overlapping activities in all the markets raising serious doubts. In light of these commitments, the Commission concluded that the proposed transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area or any substantial part of it.

    [04] Hausse de 1,2% de la production industrielle dans la zone euro

    La production industrielle corrigée des variations saisonnières a augmenté de 1,2% dans la zone euro (ZE13) et de 0,9% dans l'UE27 en août 2007 par rapport à juillet 2007. En juillet, la production avait crû de 0, 7% dans la zone euro et de 0,6% dans l'UE27. En août 2007, par rapport à août 2006, la production industrielle a progressé de 4,3% dans la zone euro et de 4,0% dans l’UE27. Ces estimations sont publiées par Eurostat.
