  • [01] 2004 fisheries compliance scoreboard : "Member States must do better"

    The European Commission has published the second edition of the Common Fisheries Policy Scoreboard. It shows that while there has been some progress in Member States' transmission of data for 2003, substantial improvements are required to conserve fish stocks. Three-quarters of the pending infringement procedures relate to cases of overfishing. Since last year's Scoreboard, the Commission has initiated four new infringement procedures : one each against Spain and the UK for serious failings in their enforcement obligations and against France and Spain for unsatisfactory control of the use of certain fishing gears. Given the continued gaps observed in Member States' enforcement activities the data sent to the Commission may not accurately reflect reality. These discrepancies are partly responsible for overfishing as fisheries are not closed in time to prevent overshooting of quotas.

    [02] EU committed to progress in WTO negotiations

    EU Foreign Ministers meeting in Brussels on 26 July sent a strong message of the EU's commitment to conclude a framework commitment in the on-going WTO negotiations under the Doha Development Agenda (DDA) by the end of July.

    [03] Steel : EU signs steel agreement with Russia

    Today the EU and Russia have signed an agreement on steel increasing the existing quotas on Russian imports to take account of EU enlargement. This new agreement adds 438.216 tonnes to the existing 1.384.000 tonnes divided over the following categories : coils 76.201 tons, heavy plates 80.614 tons, other flat products 163.996 tons, alloyed products 596 tons, beams 14.603 tons, wire rod 54.438 and other long products 47.768 tons. Both parties have agreed to start informal exploratory talks to determine the quantities for the year 2005. A Commission proposal to the Council for a negotiating mandate is in preparation.

    [04] Enquête européenne "budget temps" : Comment se répartit le temps des Européens ? Différences entre les femmes et les hommes

    Comment se répartit le temps des Européens âgés de 20 74 ans ? Combien de temps en plus les femmes consacrent-elles quotidiennement aux travaux domestiques par rapport aux hommes ? Que font les femmes et les hommes durant leur temps libre ? La publication diffusée aujourd'hui par Eurostat, l'Office statistique des Communautés européennes, vise mieux faire comprendre la vie quotidienne des femmes et des hommes âgés de 20 74 ans dans neuf Etats membres de l'UE (Belgique, Allemagne, Estonie, France, Hongrie, Slovénie, Finlande, Suède, Royaume-Uni) et en Norvège. Les données proviennent des enquêtes nationales sur l'emploi du temps conduites entre 1998 et 2002. Elles fournissent des statistiques sur la répartition du travail rémunéré et domestique entre les femmes et les hommes et sur leur participation l'éducation, aux activités culturelles et aux autres aspects de la vie (travail bénévole, soins, mobilité, temps libre, ...).
