  • [01] UE/Canada: progrès vers un accord de coopération douanière

    Mario Monti, Commissaire responsable de la douane et de la fiscalité indirecte, ainsi que du Marché Intérieur, a rencontré hier à Bruxelles l‘Honorable Jane Stewart, ministre canadien des Finances. La rencontre était un premier pas dans le cadre du suivi des aspects importants du plan d‘action UE-Canada adopté formellement le 17 décembre 1996 lors du sommet d‘Ottawa. Ce plan d‘action appelle à une collaboration plus étroite dans le domaine des douanes, de la fiscalité indirecte et de la lutte contre le crime organisé international. Le commissaire Monti et le ministre Stewart se sont mis d‘accord pour que les négociations sur l‘accord bilatéral de coopération douanière et d‘assistance mutuelle se poursuivent vigoureusement avec l‘objectif de les conclure au début de 1997. Cet accord contribuera à la facilitation du commerce et à l‘amélioration de la lutte contre la fraude dans le domaine douanier.

    [02] Single Market: trade barrier transparency procedure enters into effect

    A new procedure to ensure transparency of exceptions to the principle of free movement of goods entered into effect on 1 January 1997. The procedure has been established by a December 1995 Decision of the EU‘s Council of Ministers and the European Parliament (3052/95), which does not require national implementing legislation. The Decision obliges Member States to notify the European Commission of individual measures preventing the free movement of a model, type or category of product which has been made or sold legally in another Member State. Measures have to be notified if they directly or indirectly impose a general ban, a refusal to grant authorisation, a requirement to modify the product or a withdrawal from the market.

    [03] Van den Broek delivers Dutch horticultural prize in the Hague

    At the occasion of the delivery of the Dutch horticultural prize today in the Hague the Commissioner van den Broek underlined the importance of the horticultural sector for the Dutch economy. It is fully part of the European Single Market and will now prepare itself for widening into Central and Easter Europe. Great opportunities do exist for the Dutch and European farmers in the widened European Union, but fundamental revisions are required in the candidate countries and in the Union itself to enable proper enlargement in the Union. The IGC must succeed now, i.e. during the Dutch Presidency, said Hans van den Broek. The European Commission is fully confident that the Dutch government will demonstrate successful leadership in this regard.
