  • [01] La Commission sollicite les Etats Membres et les partenaires sociaux pour mettre en œuvre la Convention du travail maritime de l’OIT

    L'Organisation internationale du Travail (OIT) a adopté la Convention sur les normes du travail maritime, qui représente un instrument juridique mondial intéressant les 1,2 million de marins dans le monde, les armateurs et les nations maritimes du monde entier, l’issue de la dixième session maritime de la Conférence internationale du Travail le 23 février 2006. La Commission a adopté un projet de décision du Conseil qui propose une ratification par les Etats membres d’ici décembre 2008. Elle engage d’autre part la consultation des partenaires sociaux afin d’examiner la possibilité d’intégrer des dispositions de la Convention en droit européen.

    [02] Energy Commissioner Piebalgs welcomes energy cooperation in the Baltic Sea region

    During his speech at the Parliamentary Conference on “Energy Cooperation around the Baltic Sea” organised by the European Energy Forum in Riga today, EU Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs underlined the benefits this cooperation can bring to the whole of the European Union and called for the Baltic Region to play a role in Europe’s energy future. “The Baltic area has the potential to become one of the most integrated regions within the European Union. It has a vital role to play in the EU’s partnership with third countries, particularly Russia, in the debate for a new Energy Policy for Europe and in reaching a truly integrated energy market in Europe,” EU Energy Commissioner said.

    [03] Commissioner Ferrero-Waldner to visit Israel and the Palestinian Territories 19/20 June

    The Commissioner for External Relations, Benita Ferrero-Waldner will visit Israel and the Palestinian Territories on 19/20 June 2006. During her trip she intends to meet Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, as well as Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas and other leading figures on both sides. She will not meet any member of the Hamas- led government. At the request of the Quartet (EU, US, UN and Russia) Commissioner Ferrero-Waldner has spearheaded efforts to develop proposals for a Temporary International Mechanism to facilitate the direct delivery of assistance to the Palestinian people to meet basic needs, without the money passing to or through the PA government. Now that these proposals have won the approval of the Member States of the EU, she looks forward to discussing the new Mechanism with all parties. During her visit talks will also focus on the current political situation and prospects for a return to dialogue leading to a negotiated two-state solution.

    [04] Commission clears acquisition of TV and ESS by CASA

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of sole control of Portuguese companies Companhia de Seguros Tranquilidade–Vida SA (TV) and Espirito Santo Companhia de Seguros SA (ESS), both controlled by Espirito Santo Financial Group of Portugal, by Crédit Agricole SA (CASA) of France. CASA is active in life and non-life insurance, retail banking, private banking and specialised financial services. TV is active in life insurance and ESS in non-life insurance. The operation was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.
