For an ACP producer-exporter of fruit and vegetables, it is not always easy to find relevant documentation on European sanitary quality and traceability requirements.
To help ACP companies improve their quality management and have access to up-to-date information at all times, PIP has just launched its "Toolbox", which will be distributed in the coming weeks to all programme beneficiaries. This new tool, a virtual library, has been designed to solve the problem of access to information by minimizing the Internet connection difficulties that often complicate the information search in the ACP States.
Commission to tackle gender inequality with new roadmap and €50 million gender institute
Gender inequality in the EU will be tackled by 21 specific activities over the next five years, which are outlined in a new gender equality roadmap published by the European Commission. Proposed Commission activities in the 'Roadmap for equality between men and women 2006-10' include helping set up a new €50 million European institute for gender equality, reviewing all existing EU gender equality law, increasing awareness of gender inequality, ensuring gender equality is considered in all policies and pressing for better statistics. The roadmap aims to, inter alia, tackle the pay gap between men and women, support better work/life balance, eliminate violence and trafficking, support gender budgeting and promote gender equality both within and outside the EU.
