  • Atlantic Ocean: EU boosts research cooperation with Brazil and South Africa 

Today, the European Union and its partners Brazil and South Africa commit to working together to better understand marine ecosystems, their resources and impact on climate. Ahead of the signing in Lisbon of the Belém Statement on Atlantic Ocean Research and Innovation Cooperation at the "New Era of Blue Enlightenment" Conference, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation Carlos Moedas said: "This partnership will go beyond the understanding and protection of the Atlantic Ocean: it will focus on the Atlantic's impact on climate change, but also its potential to transform our food systems, improve our health, modernise our energy systems, protect our wildlife habitats and boost the opportunities of the "blue" economy. To me, this partnership has the potential to become a model of science diplomacy in action." The full speech delivered by Commissioner Moedas this morning is available here. More information on the Belém agreement signed between the Commissioner and Ministers for Brazil and South Africa will be available here after the signing ceremony. More information on the international ocean governance "Our Ocean" conference in October 2017 in Malta here.  


  • Joint Research Centre opens its laboratories to wider scientific community

The European Commission's in-house science and knowledge service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), is opening its scientific laboratories and facilities to scientists and researchers from the private and public sectors. As early as December 2017, researchers will be able to use JRC research facilities located in Ispra (Italy), and thereafter in Geel (Belgium), Karlsruhe (Germany) and Petten (Netherlands), thus helping to maximise the benefits of these world-class infrastructures and laboratories. Past successful cooperation with universities, research institutes and SMEs has shown that there is big interest in using JRC facilities. With this initiative, the JRC aims to spread scientific knowledge, boost competiveness and help to bridge the gap between research and industry. The results will also feed into JRC's mission to support EU policymaking. During the pilot phase in 2017-2018, three facilities in Ispra will be opened to external users. They are the Reaction Wall and the Hopkinson Bar facility of the European Laboratory for Structural Assessment (ELSA), and the Nanobiotechnology Laboratory. Further details are available in the press release as well as on the portal of the initiative.


  • Security Union: Cracking down on the illegal import of cultural goods used to finance terrorism

The European Commission today puts forward new rules to clamp down on the illegal import and trafficking of cultural goods from outside the EU, often linked to terrorist financing and other criminal activity. Today's proposal marks one of the final steps set out in the Commission's action plan to strengthen the fight against terrorism financing. It will stop this traffic in its tracks by banning the import into the EU of cultural goods exported illegally from their home countries and comes just days after the Hamburg G20 called on countries to tackle terrorist finance, including the looting and smuggling of antiquities. At the moment, the EU applies prohibitions on goods from Iraq and Syria but there is no general EU framework for the import of cultural goods. Current rules can be exploited by unscrupulous exporters and importers who can use the profits to fund illegal activities such as terrorism. A press release and Q&A on the new measures will also be made available. 



  • High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance delivers early recommendations

The High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance, established by the Commission, has published its first report setting out concrete steps to create a financial system that supports sustainable investments. The Commission will explore some key early recommendations to take further steps towards a low carbon, more resource-efficient and sustainable economy. The report is part of broader efforts to map out an EU strategy on sustainable finance, a priority action of the Capital Markets Union (CMU) Action Plan. The first wave of EU reforms focused on making the financial system more stable and resilient. The Commission is now driving forward efforts to reorient the financial system so that it can support long-term, sustainable growth. The financial sector has a vital role to play in reaching the climate change goals of the Paris Agreement and the EU's 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. It is also vital that more private capital is mobilised towards green and sustainable investment so as to enable the transition to a low-carbon economy. Today's interim report by High-Level Group maps out the challenges and opportunities that the EU faces in developing a sustainable finance policy agenda, identifying possible areas of reform in financial policy. It also presents a first set of early recommendations to the Commission. The expert group will further explore other policy areas to provide further recommendations in the final report, due at the end of 2017. For more information please see the press release and the report.

  • Debate sobre o futuro da Europa: 1 750 eventos, até à data, com potencial para chegar a mais de 30 milhões de europeus

Quatro meses após a apresentação do Livro Branco sobre o futuro da Europa pela Comissão Europeia, o debate sobre o futuro da Europa tem vindo a acelerar, com mais de 30 milhões de cidadãos potencialmente envolvidos até à data. O Presidente da Comissão Europeia, Jean-Claude Juncker, declarou: «É encorajante ver tantas pessoas participarem no debate sobre o futuro da União Europeia, iniciado pela Comissão a 1 de março de 2017 com o nosso Livro Branco. Temos verificado uma grande diversidade de opiniões e congratulamo?nos com esta inquebrantável dinâmica positiva que nos faz avançar. Em setembro delinearei a minha visão, mas na realidade o futuro da Europa será concebido pelos cidadãos, dado serem eles que estão a escrever os livros de história de amanhã. Continuem a participar e a fazer-vos ouvir!» A Comissão anteviu cinco cenários quanto à forma que a UE poderá vir a assumir na próxima década. Desde então tem vindo a ser travado um amplo debate, apoiado pelas instituições políticas e pela sociedade civil em geral. Até à data, mais de 270 000 cidadãos participaram em mais de 1 750 eventos organizados ou apoiados pela Comissão. Muitos outros cidadãos participaram através da Internet (ver dados aqui). Continuar-se-á a organizar eventos e debates durante os próximos meses. Os cidadãos poderão igualmente contribuir de forma direta através do sítio Web https://ec.europa.eu/commission/give-your-comments_pt.

  • Emprego e situação social na Europa: análise de 2017 confirma tendências positivas, mas destaca o elevado preço a pagar pelos jovens

A Comissão publicou hoje a edição de 2017 da sua Análise Anual do Emprego e da Situação Social na Europa. O documento confirma as tendências positivas no mercado de trabalho e na esfera social, bem como um crescimento económico continuado. Com mais de 234 milhões de pessoas empregadas, o emprego na UE nunca registou valores tão elevados, ao mesmo tempo que o desemprego regista o seu nível mais baixo desde dezembro de 2008. Desde 2013, foram criados 10 milhões de postos de trabalho na UE. Contudo, para além do progresso económico e social em termos globais, há elementos que evidenciam um preço particularmente elevado a pagar pelas gerações mais jovens, as quais tendem a conhecer maiores dificuldades para encontrar trabalho e estão mais expostas a formas atípicas de emprego, incluindo os contratos temporários, que são suscetíveis de baixar a sua proteção social. Também as pensões a que poderão aspirar em relação às remunerações tendem a ser mais baixas. Tendo em conta esta realidade, o documento de análise de 2017 coloca a tónica na equidade intergeracional: é necessário garantir que as atuais tendências económicas favoráveis se repercutem de forma positiva em todas as gerações.

  • UE e Brasil unem esforços no âmbito da OMC para criar condições equitativas a nível mundial no que toca aos subsídios à agricultura

A UE e o Brasil — dois dos maiores produtores mundiais de produtos agrícolas — apresentaram hoje à Organização Mundial do Comércio (OMC) uma proposta conjunta sobre o apoio à produção agrícola e medidas de segurança alimentar. O objetivo é limitar as distorções do mercado e assegurar condições de concorrência equitativas ao nível mundial para os agricultores, tendo simultaneamente em conta as necessidades específicas dos países em desenvolvimento. O apoio interno à agricultura é uma questão importante no âmbito das negociações que antecedem a 11.ª Conferência Ministerial da OMC (CM11), que se realiza em Buenos Aires, em dezembro próximo.

·      Avenir des finances de l'UE: les propositions du Groupe de haut niveau pour simplifier l'accès aux fonds européens

Aujourd'hui, le Groupe de haut niveau sur la simplification a présenté son rapport final sur des règles simplifiées pour les fonds européens dans la perspective du prochain cadre budgétaire, après 2020. Ce cadre simplifié bénéficierait autant aux autorités locales, qui gèrent les fonds au quotidien, qu'aux entreprises qui accèderaient plus facilement aux opportunités de financement de l'UE. Ce rapport alimentera directement la discussion sur l'avenir des finances de l'UE que la Commission a lancé le 28 juin avec un document de réflexion dédié à ce sujet. Par ailleurs, la Commission présente aujourd'hui trois rapports sur la mise en œuvre du budget de l'UE 2016, permettant de tirer des leçons pour l'avenir. Ces rapports soulignent notamment que des règles plus simples facilitent la vie des autorités locales, des entreprises et des agriculteurs, et leurs permettent d'utiliser au mieux les fonds européens; vous trouverez plus d'informations dans ce communiqué de presse. Le Commissaire au Budget et aux Ressources humaines Günther H. Oettinger, la Commissaire à la Politique régionale Corina Cre?u et Siim Kallas, ancien Vice-Président de la Commission européenne et Président du Groupe de haut niveau sur la simplification, présenteront les propositions du Groupe pour l'après 2020 aujourd'hui en salle de presse de la Commission, après la réunion de midi. Vous pourrez suivre la conférence de presse en direct et un communiqué de presse, ainsi que plus d'information sur les propositions-clés du groupe, sont disponibles en ligne.


·      Commission welcomes agreement by Parliament and Council to protect workers better against cancer-causing chemicals

Today the European Parliament and the Council reached an agreement on the Commission's proposal to set new or stricter exposure limits for several cancer-causing chemicals in the workplace. The revision process of the Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive started in 2008, and the Juncker Commission took concrete action to speed up progress in this area. Since May 2016, we have put forward two proposals to amend this Directive and reduce workers' exposure to 20 cancer-causing chemicals. Both proposals would help save the lives of more than 100,000 workers over the next 50 years. More information can be found in this statement online.

·      Consumption tax revenues on the rise in 2015, according to new Commission study on taxation trends

Revenues from consumption taxes including VAT and excise duties were up for the EU-28 as a percentage of GDP in 2015, a study published today by the European Commission has found. However, the share of consumption taxes of total revenue rose only slightly to 28.7% compared to 28.5% in 2014. The findings are in the 2017 edition of the Taxation Trends report which takes stock of tax systems in the EU, Iceland and Norway with extensive and comparable data on the different tax structures and rates of Member States. For instance, the report also shows that the average top level of corporate tax fell from 22.5% to 21.9% from 2016-2017.  It also provides an analysis on the medium- to long-term evolution of these trends. Taxation is a top priority for the Juncker Commission and providing quality data is a must if we want to develop robust and effective tax policies for the future. This report, published annually, offers a breakdown of comparative tax levels in the EU and of tax revenues raised from consumption, labour and capital. It also contains data on energy, environmental and property taxation and on the top rates for personal and corporate income taxes. Download the report here.


·      La Commission lance l'Observatoire européen du marché du sucre

L'observatoire européen du marché du sucre entame dès aujourd'hui ses activités pour soutenir le secteur à mieux faire face à la volatilité des marché grâce à des analyses et informations sur les tendances des marchés. Le Commissaire à l'agriculture et au développement rural, Phil Hogan, avait annoncé la création d'un tel Observatoire pour le secteur sucrier en début d'année au Salon de l'Agriculture à Paris, répondant ainsi aux demandes des parties prenantes pour des informations régulières et à jour sur les évolutions économiques. Etabli sur le même modèle des deux Observatoires déjà existants, pour le lait et la viande, l'Observatoire du marché du sucre, vise à introduire plus de transparence dans le secteur en partageant des données économiques et des analyses à court-terme. L'agenda du jour portera sur les priorités et le fonctionnement de l'Observatoire et de son comité économique qui adoptera aujourd'hui les règles de procédure. Un Observatoire du marché des céréales sera aussi prochainement lancé. Plus d'informations sur le lancement de l'Observatoire du marché du sucre et l'annonce de sa création sont disponibles en ligne. 


·      College Members meet Japan's Economy Minister Seko and participate in EU-Japan Business Roundtable

Vice-President Andrus Ansip, Vice-President Jyrki Katainen and Commissioner Cecilia Malmström spoke this morning at the EU-Japan Business Roundtable – a yearly gathering of businesses and policy makers, alternating between Japan and Brussels. The roundtable was the first opportunity to present to European and Japan business leaders last week's Economic Partnership Agreement reached with Japan. Vice-President for the Digital Single Market Ansip accentuated in his speech that the EU and Japan can bring their digital cooperation to the next level with free flow of personal data based on converging data protection laws, while Trade Commissioner Malmström noted in her speech the new opportunities the companies will be able to enjoy after the Economic Partnership Agreement removes 99 per cent of customs duties and reduces unnecessary red tape. This afternoon, Climate Action and Energy Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete will meet Japan's Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Hiroshige Seko to sign a joint Memorandum of Cooperation on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and to exchange views on the state of the EU-Japan energy dialogue. Vice-President Jyrki Katainen will also meet Minister Seko to discuss international trade and investment issues. Later in the day, Minister Seko will additionally meet Vice-President Ansip and Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality V?ra Jourová to discuss data protection, adequacy decisions and data flows between Japan and the EU. The EU and Japan have been in a dialogue to promote high data protection standards since January 2017. Last week Commissioner Jourová took stock of progress in this dialogue with Japanese data protection Commissioner Haruhi Kumazawa. Additionally, President Juncker and Prime Minister Abe issued last Thursday a joint declaration, reaffirming the importance of ensuring a high level of privacy and security of personal data as a fundamental right and as a central factor of consumer trust in the digital economy. The aim is to strengthen EU-Japan industrial and digital cooperation in various digital fields, including also topics such as the Internet of Things and eGovernment.
