  • [01] Ninth EU-Russia Summit Moscow, 29 May 2002

    On 29 May in Moscow, the President of the European Commission, Romano Prodi, together with the President-in-office of the European Council, Spanish Prime Minister José María Aznar, will meet the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin. On the EU side, Commission Vice-President Loyola de Palacio, Commissioners for External Relations, Chris Patten, and for Trade, Pascal Lamy, together with the EU High Representative for CFSP, Javier Solana, and the Spanish Foreign Minister and President-in-office of the Council, Josep Piqué will also participate. The Moscow Summit is expected to take EU-Russia relations a step forward against the background of the new strategic framework defined by Russia's post-Cold War agreements with the US and NATO, that will contribute to firmly anchoring Russia with the West. It is expected that the Summit will agree on a joint Summit statement and separate statements on ESDP and the Middle East. In addition, the Summit will endorse progress reports on the Energy Dialogue and the Common European Economic Space, and will welcome agreement on the long- pending mechanism to speed up dispute-settlement procedures within the PCA.

    [02] Soil protection - results of the informal Environment Council in Palma de Mallorca on 24-25 May 2002

    The European Commission is encouraged by the commitment shown by Ministers to soil protection at this weekend's informal Environment Council in Mallorca. The high profile given by the Spanish Presidency to this subject means that it is now firmly on the EU agenda. Following the formal meeting of the Environment Council in June, work on an ambitious programme will begin. The programme, which will involve all stakeholders, will lead to formal proposals for soil monitoring and an action-based approach to the major soil threats.

    [03] Eurostat Yearbook 2002 - Europe from evens angle… A compendium of European statistics

    Eurostat today publishes the 7th edition of its Yearbook. A veritable digest of statistical information available on Europe, the Eurostat Yearbook provides information which is harmonised and hence comparable between Member States, as well as being designed as a gateway to the more detailed data available in Eurostat's thematic publications. Nearly 200,000 items of data are presented in the form of statistical tables, graphs and maps, accompanied by analytical or methodological comments. The 2002 Yearbook covers the period 1990 to 2000.
