  • [01] La Commissaire Danuta Hübner en Franche-Comté (France): la crise économique justifie plus que jamais la priorité donnée l’innovation et la recherche

    Danuta Hübner, commissaire européenne la politique régionale, se rend le 8 janvier en Franche-Comté afin de rencontrer les autorités chargées de la mise en œuvre des investissements européens. À l'occasion de cette visite, la Commissaire se rendra sur le site de projets qui ont bénéficié du soutien de l’Union européenne, notamment le technopôle TEMIS qui contribue au développement des petites entreprises de la région.

    [02] Telecoms: Commission seeks more evidence for decision on proposed Finnish broadband deregulation

    The European Commission has informed the Finnish telecoms regulator, Viestintävirasto or FICORA (Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority), of its serious doubts over the compatibility with EU law of its draft regulatory measures on the Finnish wholesale broadband access market. Finland's regulator has not provided enough evidence to justify the deregulation of access to the incumbent operators' broadband networks it proposes, namely that certain geographic markets ready for deregulation show different competitive conditions from the rest of the country. The Commission now has until 5 March 2009 to decide whether the regulator can adopt its proposed measures. The regulator may not adopt the measures until the Commission approves them.

    [03] November 2008 compared with October 2008 - Industrial producer prices down by 1.9% in euro area; down by 2.1% in EU27

    According to Eurostat, in November 2008 compared with October 2008, the industrial producer price index fell by 1.9% in the euro area and by 2.1% in the EU27. In October, prices decreased by 0.8% and 1.1% respectively. In November 2008 compared with November 2007, industrial producer prices increased by 3.3% in the euro area and by 4.1% in the EU27.

    In the context of the current dispute between Gazprom and Naftogaz and the reported very serious reductions of the volumes of natural gas supplied to Europe, the European organization of natural gas industries (Eurogas) met with Commissioner Piebalgs today to exchange views on the latest developments and related measures. Eurogas and the European Commission expressed their strong concerns of the impact of the dispute on European customers and called for an immediate resumption of the natural gas supplies to Europe, urging both parties to respect their contractual supply and transit obligations.
