A better balance between control and risk – this is the goal of the revised Financial Regulation proposed by the Commission today. The changes will significantly simplify financial procedures, improving efficiency and transparency in EU spending. New rules should be in place by 2007, in time to allow the smooth functioning of a new generation of EU-funded programmes.

The Directorate General for Development of the European Commission launches today its weekly newsletter. The newsletter will be published in English or French every Friday afternoon and contain news on Development cooperation of the European Union. The newsletter will be available by e-mail and online.
A very useful glossay to better understand some 220 terms relating to European integration and the institutions and activities of the EU.
The definitions contained in the Glossary have been adapted to include all the latest political and institutional developments of the European Union, such as the European Constitution which is currently being ratified.
Four out of 10 Europeans feel ignorant about genetically modified (GMO) crops and foods and a quarter of them are worried that gene-altered products used in farming will affect the environment, a poll showed on Friday. In some countries, particularly in Scandinavia, the feeling of not having enough information about GMOs was far higher than average, hitting 66 percent in Finland and 49 percent in Sweden. Slightly under a quarter of Europeans said they were worried about GMOs used in farming as an environmental issue. This compared with 47 percent of respondents who voiced concern over water pollution and 45 percent over climate change. The highest concern levels over GMO crops and foods came from Greece and Austria, both at 43 percent. Cyprus came third with 39 percent. Conversely, Malta was the least concerned at just 12 percent, followed by Finland with 14 percent.

Twenty-eight members of the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) group, including Botswana, signed a charter establishing the ACP Parliamentary Assembly at a recent meeting in Bamako, Mali.
A news release from Parliament says Palapye MP Boyce Sebetela signed for Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Balopi at the nineth session of the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly.
The ACP consultative assembly is a consultative forum for exchange of views by the ACP parliamentarians on issues of mutual concern.
The session later adopted the Bamako Declaration of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which were endorsed by world leaders in September 2000 in Monterrey, Mexico.
The millennium goals set out the aspirations of the international community for collective responsibility to respect and uphold the principles of human dignity and called for equity at the global level.
The Bamako Declaration recognises in particular the slow and negative progress that has so far been realised in moving towards attainment of the goals.
Sub-Saharan Africa was found to be trailing behind all the regions in making notable progress towards the realisation of the goals.
The declaration, therefore, calls for more efforts to be employed to assist ACP countries to make positive progress towards the realisation of the goals by the 2015.
It says emphasis should be put on MDGs One and Two, which call for the eradication of poverty and hunger, and attainment of universal primary education.
The ACP and EU parliamentarians also exchanged views on topics that include the situation in the Darfur region of Sudan and the Great Lakes region.
They called for increased efforts from authorities in the regions as well as the international community, particularly the African Union (AU) with the help of the EU and other cooperating partners, to assist in bringing the situation to normal.
