    European Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, Benita Ferrero-Waldner, will tomorrow participate in the launch of a new framework for cooperation between Afghanistan and the international community in London. This political agreement gives both sides' tools and a plan with which to build greater security, progress on governance, human rights and rule of law, increased prosperity and social development and dealing with the scourge of narcotics. The conference will be attended by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, as well as ministers or senior representatives from more than 60 countries and international organisations.

    La compétitivité économique et la fonction d'intégration sociale de la société de l'information en Europe et dans les pays du Mercosur seront à l'ordre du jour des entretiens qui se dérouleront aujourd'hui et demain entre la Commission européenne et les principaux ministres du Brésil et de l'Argentine. Mme Viviane Reding, membre de la Commission européenne chargée de la société de l'information et des médias, cherche à renforcer la coopération de l'UE avec le Brésil et l'Argentine dans les domaines de la recherche tels que les services de radiodiffusion mobiles, les logiciels libres et les communications par satellite, ainsi que pour le développement d'applications pratiques de ces technologies, destinées à l'Amérique latine. Elle abordera également avec les autorités brésiliennes et argentines le développement de la télévision numérique et l'importance économique et sociale du choix du bon standard.

    According to the latest revisions, the EU25 external current account recorded a deficit of €21.8 billion in the third quarter of 2005, as compared to a deficit of €9.1 billion in the third quarter of 2004 and a deficit of €21.8 billion in the second quarter of 2005. In the third quarter of 2005, the EU25 external current account recorded a surplus with the USA (+24.1 billion), Switzerland (+3.0 billion) and Canada (+2.9 billion), while a deficit was recorded with Japan (-5.2 billion) and remaining partners as a whole (-46.6 billion). In the third quarter of 2005, compared to the third quarter of 2004, a higher deficit was recorded in the goods account (-€20.3 billion compared to -9.6 billion) and the current transfer account (-€10.8 billion compared to -9.1 billion), while the surplus of the services account decreased (+8.5 billion compared to +10.7 billion). The balance of the income account turned to a small surplus from a small deficit (+0.8 billion compared to -1.1 billion). The surplus recorded in the services account (+8.5 billion) is the result of a surplus in the transportation (+4.3 billion) and "other services" components (+8.8 billion), as well as a deficit in travel (-4.4 billion). These provisional data, issued by Eurostat, are subject to revision.
