    [02] Angola: la Commission accorde 3 millions d’euros sous forme d'aide humanitaire pour le rapatriement des réfugiés de Namibie et de Zambie

    La Commission européenne a débloqué un montant de 3 millions d’euros du Fonds européen de développement pour couvrir les frais de transport et de logistique liés au rapatriement d’au moins 45 000 réfugiés angolais en Namibie (1 million d’euros) et en Zambie (2 millions d’euros). L'aide sera acheminée par l’intermédiaire de l'Office d'aide humanitaire de la Commission (ECHO) et mise en œuvre par l'Organisation internationale pour les migrations (OIM).

    [03] Commission grants Euro 93 million to upgrade European Research and Education Internet (GÉANT)

    A contract to upgrade Europe’s world-leading GÉANT communications network for research and education has been signed by the European Commission in Brussels. Upgrades will include high-performance services for the most demanding network users, giving researchers their own “wavelengths” across the continent; end-to-end connectivity, which will give scientists direct access to the advanced communication capabilities of GÉANT and Europe’s national research networks; and a mobility and roaming service that will enable scientists to stay connected to GÉANT wherever they are doing their research. GÉANT and its partners, the National Research and Education Networks (NRENs), together provide the research communications backbone infrastructure for 34 countries in Europe. The European Commission’s contribution to this project, €93 million, is estimated at less than 50% of total expenditure. The remainder will be co- financed by the participating countries.

    [04] July 2004 compared to June 2004 - Industrial producer prices up by 0.4% in both euro-zone and EU25

    The euro-zone industrial producer price index rose by 0.4% in July 2004 compared with the previous month, Eurostat, estimates today. In July 2004, EU25 prices also grew by 0.4%. In June 2004 prices remained stable in both the euro-zone and the EU25. In July 2004 compared to July 2003, industrial producer prices increased by 2.8% in the euro-zone and by 3.1% in the EU25.
