  • [01] Hurricane Ivan : Commission earmarks €1.5 million for victims in Grenada

    The European Commission, through its Humanitarian Aid Office (ECHO), has earmarked €1.5 million for humanitarian aid to meet emergency needs caused by Hurricane Ivan on the Caribbean island of Grenada. The focus of the aid will be on providing the most vulnerable people with emergency shelter, as well as food, drinking water, hygiene kits and tarpaulins for house roofing. About 5000 homeless families will be targeted. Other interventions could include support for rehabilitating water supplies and sanitation. Extensive house destruction has forced thousands of people to go to organised shelters, and many others who are homeless are in "informal" shelters. The aid will be implemented through ECHO partners working in the region.

    [02] La Commission lance une consultation des intéressés sur la politique future en matière de changement climatique

    Quelle devrait être la démarche de l'UE concernant la lutte contre le changement climatique dans l'avenir ? Comment les pays de l'UE devraient- ils coopérer pour lutter contre le changement climatique après 2012, lorsque les actuels objectifs du protocole de Kyoto arriveront leur terme ? Ces questions figurent dans une consultation en ligne des intéressés lancée aujourd'hui par la Commission européenne. La consultation donne aux intéressés (citoyens, entreprises, décideurs politiques, ONG, autorités, scientifiques et autres) l’occasion de participer au débat sur l’avenir de la politique en matière de climat l'échelle mondiale. La Commission utilisera les contributions pour élaborer la politique future de l'UE en matière de changement climatique et sa propre contribution au débat international sur le futur régime international de lutte contre le changement climatique.

    [03] Feu vert de la Commission pour l'acquisition des activités de Shell au Portugal par Repsol

    En application du règlement sur les concentrations, la Commission européenne a marqué son accord pour l'acquisition des activités pétrolières de Shell au Portugal par la compagnie pétrolière espagnole Repsol YPF. Cette transaction ne suscite pas d'inquiétudes en matière de concurrence dans la mesure où d'autres grandes entreprises sont présentes sur ce marché.

    [04] Commission clears acquisition of Polish slaughterhouse Sokołów by Danish Crown and Finnish HK Ruokatalo

    The European Commission has granted regulatory approval to the acquisition of joint control by slaughterhouses Danish Crown and Finnish HK Ruokatalo of the Polish slaughterhouse Sokołów. The operation does not raise any competition concerns given that the companies are presently active in essentially different countries.

    [05] Commission clears Uniqa acquisition of Italian insurer Claris Vita

    The European Commission has granted clearance, under the Merger Regulation, to a proposed concentration by which Austrian insurer Uniqa Versicherung AG acquires sole control of Italy's Claris Vita S.p.A by way of purchases of shares. Claris Vita is an insurance company which operates exclusively in Italy in the life insurance market whereas Uniqa operates mainly in Austria. (The operation, which was notified on 16 August, was examined under a simplified procedure).

    [06] Second quarter 2004 compared to first quarter 2004 : production in the construction sector down by 0.9% in the euro-zone ; down by 0.8% in EU25

    Seasonally adjusted production in the construction sector fell by 0.9% in the euro-zone and by 0.8% in the EU25 in the second quarter of 2004, compared to the first quarter of 2004, Eurostat estimates today. In the first quarter of 2004, production decreased by 0.2% in the euro-zone, but rose by 0.3% in the EU25. As compared to the second quarter of 2003, output in the second quarter of 2004 fell by 1.2% in the euro-zone, but rose by 0.2% in the EU25, after +1.0% and +3.5% respectively in the first quarter of 2004.
