    [01] EU strengthens fight against piracy and counterfeiting beyond its borders

    In an effort to halt the increase in piracy and counterfeiting the European Commission has adopted a strategy for the enforcement of intellectual property rights in third countries. The action plan focuses on vigorous and effective implementation and enforcement of existing IPR laws. It proposes to identify priority countries where enforcement actions should be concentrated. Stress will be put on technical cooperation and assistance to help third countries fight counterfeiting but the Commission will not hesitate to trigger all bilateral and multilateral sanction mechanisms against any country involved in systematic violations. The Commission will foster awareness raising of users and consumers in third countries and support the creation of public-private partnerships for enforcement.

    [02] Commission issues first report on the state of practical preparations for the further enlargement of the euro area

    The European Commission today issued its first report on the state of practical preparations for the euro in the new Member States. Following the enlargement of the European Union, the adoption of the euro constitutes the next major step in the further integration of the new Member States. The report shows that all ten new EU States wish this to happen between 2007 and 2010. Three of them have already joined the EU's Exchange Rate Mechanism and a higher number have launched a selection procedure for the design of the national side of the euro. The introduction of the euro in the new countries should be faster and even smoother that in the current eurozone members since an average of around 50% of the population has already used euro notes and coins. But there is no room for complacency. It took six years to prepare the current participating Member States for the euro and although most citizens in the new countries are familiar with the notes and coins they need to be prepared and reassured that the transition will be smooth and to their benefit.

    La Commission européenne a présenté la première édition du "Manuel européen d'intégration" aux ministres des Etats membres chargés de l'immigration, lors de la conférence interministérielle sur la politique d'intégration organisée par la présidence néerlandaise Groningue.

    [04] Cambodia Commission allocates €3.5 million in humanitarian aid in response to "child survival crisis"

    The European Commission has allocated €3.5 million to improve the health situation of vulnerable children in Cambodia. Activities will promote access to safe water and improve hygiene conditions for vulnerable groups thereby reducing infant and child mortality which remains very high in Cambodia. Demining activities will also be funded. Funds will be channelled through the European Commissions Humanitarian Aid Directorate General (ECHO) under the responsibility of Commissioner Poul Nielson.
