    [01] Governance at the heart of development cooperation: Commission proposes measures to foster reforms

    The European Commission has today adopted a communication which proposes enhancing the means used to support governance and calls on the Member States to harmonise their work in this area. It advocates supporting the development of democratic institutions and processes more adapted to the needs of ordinary citizens, even the most marginalised, in the political, economic, social, cultural or environmental field. Poverty reduction, sustainable development and peace can be achieved only if significant progress is made towards democratic governance. The most important features of the proposed measures to encourage developing countries to step up their reform efforts are enhanced political dialogue, a common approach and a higher level of more effective assistance. Furthermore, an incentive envelope of EUR 3 billion has been set aside for this purpose for the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries.

    [02] Lebanon: Commission pledges €42 million for early recovery

    On Thursday 31 August, European Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, Benita Ferrero-Waldner will participate in the International Donor Conference on Lebanon in Stockholm, where she will pledge €42 million as a first contribution to Lebanon’s recovery and rehabilitation efforts. In line with the Lebanese Government’s requests for assistance, the Commission’s package includes technical assistance to the government for the reconstruction process, focussing on infrastructure and environment; support for rule of law and improved internal security; and support for the Lebanese private sector to help relaunch the economy. This package demonstrates the Commission’s commitment to provide assistance to Lebanon not only in immediate reconstruction work, but also by laying the groundwork for a longer term recovery through support for crucial political and economic reforms. Tomorrow’s pledge brings the total made available by the European Commission in the immediate aftermath of the recent conflict to over €100 million (including humanitarian assistance). The Commission will continue to support Lebanon as the reconstruction programme progresses.

    [04] Le Président Barroso au MEDEF : le pari de la croissance et de l’emploi dans l’UE

    Le Président de la Commission européenne, José Manuel Barroso, a ouvert mardi 29 août en région parisienne, l'université d'été du Mouvement des entreprises de France (MEDEF) aux côtés de Laurence Parisot, Présidente du MEDEF. Reprenant son compte le thème des travaux de l’université d’été proposé par le MEDEF « concilier l’inconciliable », le Président Barroso a abordé la question de la conciliation entre : la flexibilité et la sécurité ; la compétitivité et la cohésion économique et sociale ; les dimensions nationale et mondiale ; la diversité et l’unité en Europe, jugeant que l’Europe est l’espace de conciliation par excellence dans la mondialisation.
