  • Um orçamento da UE a pensar no futuro: Comissão lança debate sobre o futuro das finanças da EU

Enquanto a Europa decide sobre o seu futuro, a UE precisa de um orçamento à sua medida, que ponha cada euro ao serviço dos seus cidadãos.
Hoje publicado, o documento de reflexão da Comissão sobre o
futuro das finanças da UE pondera as diferentes opções para proceder à sua concretização. As questões suscitadas no quinto e último documento desta série são fulcrais para o debate iniciado em 1 de março, com o Livro Branco da Comissão sobre o Futuro da Europa. O documento de reflexão traça as possíveis implicações orçamentais das opções que fizermos.
O orçamento da UE depara-se com um desafio de monta: financiar mais com menos. A UE é chamada a desempenhar um papel mais importante em novos domínios estratégicos como a migração, a segurança interna e externa ou a defesa. E a Europa deve também manter o seu papel de liderança na cena mundial, enquanto importante doador de ajuda humanitária e de ajuda ao desenvolvimento à escala global e principal impulsionador do combate às alterações climáticas. Deverá assegurá-lo com um orçamento que se verá ainda mais reduzido após a saída do Reino Unido.

  • Steering Committee ofEUFacility for Refugees in Turkey meets today

 

Today, the 7th Steering Committee meeting of the EU Facility for Refugees in Turkey takes place in Brussels. It brings together the European Commission, representatives of EU Member States, representatives of Turkey and the European Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee's rapporteur for Turkey Ms Kati Piri. On the occasion, Commissioner Hahn stressed: "The EU Facility for Refugees continues to make a difference in the daily lives of many refugees. EU support gives Syrian refugees and host communities the opportunity to boost their skills and thus succeed on the labour market. I remain fully committed to helping Turkey improve the living conditions of the refugees in the country and I look forward to visiting some of our refugee support projects next week when I travel to Turkey." Commissioner Stylianides added: "We have already reached over 680,000 people through the Emergency Social Safety Net and the additional funding committed in May will enable us to reach 1.3 Million refugees by the end of the year. The Conditional Cash Transfer for Education programme has already reached the families of 56,000 refugee children. This is the EU's largest humanitarian aid operation ever andwe continue working hard to provide vulnerable refugees in Turkey with aid, a sense of dignity, and hope." During the Steering Committee meeting, the European Commission will report on the continuous progress under the EU Facility. A full press release of the meeting will be available after 1pm here. More information on the Facility here. (For more information: Maja Kocijancic – Tel.: +32 229 86570; Carlos Martin Ruiz De Gordejuela – Tel.: +32 229 65322; Lauranne Devillé – Tel.: +32 229 80833; Christina Wunder – Tel.: +32 229 92256)

 

  • EU strengthens girls' visibility and participation in fighting violence against women and girls

 

Tomorrow, Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, will give the keynote speech at the launch event of a new global campaign by the aid agency World Vision, with the aim to end violence against women and girls. In this context, Commissioner Mimica said: "Violence against girls has dramatic and life-long consequences – on its victims, their families, and on whole societies. It's up to all of us not to let this continue a day longer. The EU is already investing huge efforts to provide an empowering and safe environment for girls – from helping to reform legislation to protect girls from femicide and harmful practices to supporting girls who are victims of sexual violence. In order to increase our impact globally, we are currently working together with the United Nations on a ground-breaking Initiative to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls around the world. We intend to officially launch it in September – so join us to make this change happen!" The EU initiative and the new World Vision campaign come at the right time: a recent report found that in 2015, less than 0.6% of total global development spending was allocated to ending violence against children. The European Commission leads by example: between January 2011 and March 2017, the EU has supported children's rights through all sectors of its external relations with over €8 billion in 142 developing countries – almost 10% of which was directly dedicated to tackling child labour, trafficking of children, supporting children in armed conflicts, preventing harmful practices and sexual exploitation, as well as other violence-related projects.(For more information: Carlos Martin Ruiz De Gordejuela – Tel.: +32 229 65322; Christina Wunder – Tel.: +32 229 92256)

  • Antitrust: Commission fines Google €2.42 billion for abusing dominance as search engine by giving illegal advantage to own comparison shopping service

The European Commission has fined Google €2.42 billion for breaching EU antitrust rules. Google has abused its market dominance as a search engine by giving an illegal advantage to another Google product, its comparison shopping service. The company must now end the conduct within 90 days or face penalty payments of up to 5% of the average daily worldwide turnover of Alphabet, Google's parent company. A full press release is available online in EN, FR and DE and all other EU languages. Please also see Factsheet in EN, FR and DE.

 

  • Croatia becomes part of the Schengen Information System (SIS)

As of today, Croatia is connected to the Schengen Information System (SIS), the most widely used information sharing system for security and border management in Europe. Croatia will now be able to exchange information with other Member States through SIS on persons wanted in relation to terrorism and other serious crimes, missing persons and certain objects such as stolen vehicles, firearms and identity documents. This will further enhance information exchange between Member States and will contribute to the security of all European citizens. Croatia's integration into SIS will also help reduce waiting time at land borders between Croatia and Slovenia - with both Member States having access to SIS, there will no longer be a need for checks against databases on both sides of the border. The Commission had proposed the gradual integration of Croatia into the SIS on 18 January 2017, with the Council adopting the Commission proposal on 25 April 2017 and setting the date for the entry into operation for 27 June 2017. In December 2016, the Commission presented a legislative proposal to further strengthen the operational effectiveness of the Schengen Information System by improving the security and accessibility of the system and including new alert categories as well as the obligation for Member States to create SIS alerts in cases related to terrorist offences. 

 

  • Tax Fairness Conference: Putting fairness and taxation hand-in-hand

The European Commission will host a high-level Conference on Tax Fairness in Brussels on Wednesday and Thursday this week, as part of its wider agenda for fairer and more effective taxation in the EU.  The conference will bring together a wide range of EU and international policy-makers, academics, NGOs, trade unions, businesses and tax administrations. Through a series of panel discussions, the event will focus on the role that taxation can play in ensuring social fairness. Over 300 participants from the EU and beyond are expected to engage in an active discussion on the fight against tax fraud, evasion and avoidance, but also the role of taxation in reducing inequalities and supporting social mobility. The discussions will feed into and further develop the Commission's ongoing agenda to make taxation fairer and more effective. The Commission has already taken various actions taken so far to fight tax fraud, evasion and avoidance, such as the Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive, as well as proposals for the CCCTB and new transparency rules for tax intermediaries. The conference will provide insights on the multiple dimensions of tax fairness and views from a wide range of stakeholders. Pierre Moscovici, Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs will deliver a keynote speech on the first day. While registration is now closed, the event will be web streamed live via EbS. More information on the programme is also available here. 

  • Security Union: EU Internet Forum senior officials to address radicalisation online

Today, EU and Member State senior officials are meeting at the EU Internet Forum to discuss the issue of radicalisation online. In particular, the participants will focus on ways to reduce the accessibility of terrorist material online as well as on how to empower civil society to increase alternative narratives online. Launched by the European Commission in 2015, the EU Internet Forum provides a framework for efficient cooperation with the internet industry on the detection and removal of online terrorist content. Building on the work of the EU Internet Forum, the European Council Conclusions of 22-23 June called for internet platforms to step up their efforts to combat terrorism and crime online. The full speech by Commissioner Avramopoulos is available here. More information available in the factsheet 'A Europe that protects'.
