  • [01] La Commission publie une communication relative à la téléphonie vocale sur Internet

    La Commission européenne a publié sur son site web une version actualisée de sa communication de 1998 sur le statut des communications vocales sur Internet en droit communautaire, au terme d'une procédure de consultation. Cette mise à jour apporte un certain nombre de précisions à la communication de 1998 mais confirme l'appréciation globale selon laquelle les Etats membres doivent continuer, sauf dans quelques cas limités, de réserver aux communications vocales sur Internet un traitement différent de celui qu'ils appliquent aux services de téléphonie vocale.

    [02] November 2000 industrial producer prices rose by 0.4% in euro-zone ; up 0.5% in EU15

    (! embargo 12 am !) The euro-zone industrial producer price index rose by 0.4% in November 2000 compared with the previous month, Eurostat estimates today. It went up by 0.6% in October. EU15 prices, which had also increased by 0.6% in October, rose by 0.5% in November. The lower overall rate in November is mainly due to a smaller increase of the intermediate goods index, which rose by 0.5 % in the euro-zone and 0.8% in the EU15 after a rise of 1.2% and 1.3% respectively in October. The euro-zone and the EU15 index for durable consumer goods was unchanged in November while the index for non-durable consumer goods increased by 0.2%. Producer prices increased by 6.5% in the euro-zone and 5.7% in the EU15 compared to November 1999.

    [03] Business and Consumer Surveys first results December 2000

    (! embargo 12 am !) The economic sentiment indicator increased by 0.1 point in the euro area and by 0.3 point in the EU according to the business and consumer survey results in December 2000 published today by the European Commission (Directorate General Economic & Financial Affairs). Among the components, the industrial confidence indicator increased by 1 point in the EU and remained steady in the euro area in December. The construction confidence indicator declined slightly in December, while the consumer confidence indicator increased in December by 2 points in both the euro area and the EU.

    [04] L'initiative "Green Week" fait appel aux qualités créatives des jeunes citoyens de l'Union européenne

    Les jeunes Européens sont invités à confronter leurs connaissances sur les questions d'environnement, leur vision du futur et leurs qualités créatives en participant aux cinq concours lancés par la Direction générale "Environnement" de la Commission européenne, dans le cadre de l'initiative "Green Week" qu'elle organise en avril 2001. L'objectif de cette initiative est de mettre l'accent sur les questions d'environnement essentielles et de stimuler le débat sur le présent et l'avenir de la planète parmi les futurs décideurs dans le domaine de l'environnement.
