  • [01] Le multilinguisme dans l'UE : la Commission appelle à Suvrer pour la promotion des langues et lance un nouveau portail web

    Sous le mot d'ordre "Plus tu connais de langues, plus tu es humain", la Commission européenne réaffirme son propre engagement en faveur du multilinguisme en adoptant aujourd'hui la première communication de son histoire sur ce sujet. Le document explore les diverses facettes des politiques de la Commission en la matière et présente une nouvelle stratégie-cadre pour le multilinguisme, assortie de propositions d'actions spécifiques. Celles-ci portent sur trois domaines distincts dans lesquels les langues occupent une place importante dans la vie quotidienne des Européens : la société, l'économie et les relations de la Commission elle-même avec les citoyens de l'Union. La Commission incite les Etats membres à jouer leur rôle dans la promotion de l'enseignement, de l'apprentissage et de l'utilisation des langues. Pour marquer l'occasion, un nouveau portail web consacré aux langues et consultable dans les 20 langues officielles a été lancé sur EUROPA, le site web de l'ensemble des institutions de l'Union.

    [02] Commission clears acquisition of Paybox by Mobilkom and ONE

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of joint control of Paybox Austria AG by Mobilkom Austria AG & Co KG (MK) and ONE GmbH (ONE), also of Austria. MK is a mobile telephony operator in Austria and runs both 2G and 3G networks. ONE, which jointly belongs to the German energy group E.ON, the Norwegian telecom operator Telenor, the French telecom group Orange/France Telecom and the Danish telecom company TDC, operates both 2G and 3G mobile telephony networks in Austria. Paybox is a provider of non-cash payment systems via mobile devices. The operation was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.

    [03] Commission earmarks €2 million to tackle yellow fever outbreak in Sudan

    The European Commission has drawn up an emergency humanitarian aid decision for €2 million to help deal with a serious outbreak of yellow fever in the South Kordofan region of Sudan. This region is a "crossroads" with many population movements. If left unchecked, the epidemic could quickly extend to other parts of Sudan. In recent weeks, there have been more than 400 cases of the mosquito-borne disease with 124 deaths reported so far. The funds are managed by the Commission's Humanitarian Aid Department under the responsibility of Commissioner Louis Michel.

    [04] Benita Ferrero-Waldner on the first anniversay of the Orange Revolution in Ukraine

    On the first anniversary of the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, the European Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, Benita Ferrero-Waldner said : "The new political reality in Ukraine was hard won through the courage and determination of the people. We all have a duty to ensure that their aspirations for a better future are not disappointed. Those who took to the streets in peaceful demonstrations, were demanding democracy, better government, and a chance for greater prosperity. The European Union is helping Ukraine to achieve these goals through intensive co operation under the European Neighbourhood Policy. One year on, Ukraine can point to important progress, but there is still much work to do. The EU will be there to support Ukraine's reform efforts every step of the way".
