  • [01] EESC seminar stresses need for coordinated efforts to protect media freedom

    The need for coordinated efforts with a view to protect media freedom in the Euro-Mediterranean region and especially in the Arab Spring countries was underlined during the opening of a seminar organized here October 11-12 by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) in cooperation with the European Commission and the Cyprus EU Presidency.

    In her speech, EESC Vice President Anna Maria Darmanin said that the initial enthusiasm that accompanied the Arab uprisings and the ensuing freedom euphoria seems to be fading, noting that press freedom in a number of countries in the region feels ever more distant. She added that although many believed that media freedom would grow after the ousting of former dictators in the region, in many places the tide is reversing. She stressed that media freedom should be constitutionally protected and that in many post-revolutionary countries there is no legal media framework yet.

    [02] Europe launches Friday two more Galileo satellites

    Europe launches Friday Galileo`s third and fourth satellites, thus offering more benefits to Europe and its citizens. A European Space Agency official told CNA that Galileo will bring many benefits for Europe's economy and for the daily life of its citizens.

    He added that the launch of two more satellites is an important step towards the completion of the Galileo Program, which will offer Europe the necessary independence from other global navigation systems. According to the Cyprus EU Presidency, the development of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS - the Galileo Project) will contribute to economic growth in Europe.
