  • [01] Commission to recover € 161.9 million of CAP expenditure from the Member States

    A total of € 161.9 million of EU farm money unduly spent by Member States is to be claimed back, following a decision adopted today by the European Commission. The money will be recovered because of inadequate control procedures or non-compliance with EU rules on agricultural expenditure. Member States are responsible for paying out and checking expenditure under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), and the Commission is required to ensure that Member States have made correct use of the funds.

    [02] Joe Borg participates in Maritime event in Brittany

    European Commissioner for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, Joe Borg, participated earlier today in the inauguration of the 20th edition of the "Maritime Festival" ("Fêtes maritimes") which takes place in the port of Douarnenez (Brittany). This year's edition focuses on the action of rescuers at sea to which it pays a well deserved tribute. In his speech, Commissioner Borg presented the Green Paper, adopted on 7 June, on a future European maritime policy for the European Union. Such a policy aims at increasing growth and competitiveness whilst simultaneously preserving the resource base: the marine environment. Speaking specifically about maritime heritage which is another central theme of the "Maritime Festival", Commissioner Borg said that "the Green Paper places emphasis on the maintenance and development of Europe's maritime heritage – the cultural, educational and recreational aspects of our common history of Europe's seas and oceans. I believe that such an approach can help to highlight the importance of maritime activities and to encourage people to choose a career in the maritime sectors". After watching demonstrations of sea- rescue exercises, Commissioner Borg will visit the tugboat "Abeille Bourbon". The visit will be concluded by a trip onboard the French navy sailing ship, "l'Etoile".

Danuta Hübner noted that at the European level rules are now in place for Member States to set clear priorities in their regional policy strategy.
