  3. INTA Committee backs GSP scheme update
    2012-03-02
    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : ACP-EU Trade

    According to the International Trade (INTA) Committee,  high and upper-middle income countries should be removed the EU's generalised trade preferences (GSP) list, as more could be done to help developing countries most in need. Likewise, MEPs strengthened safeguards to prevent textile imports from disrupting the EU market.
    MEPs backed a European Commission plan to update the GSP scheme to reflect recent shifts in world trade patterns, by removing preferences for EU imports from countries on the World Bank's high or upper middle per capita income list (including Russia, Brazil, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar).
    According to the European Parliament, the changes would reduce the number of countries that enjoy preferential access to EU markets from 176 to about 80. Imports qualifying for preferences would be reduced from €60 billion in 2009 (4% of total EU imports) to about €37.7 billion.
    This is the first time that Parliament has exercised its power, introduced by the Lisbon Treaty, to legislate on the GSP.

    Following the European Council meeting, recently held in Brussels, strong support for an ambitious outcome of the Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development was voiced.The European Council  has set out some key principles that will guide the EU in its preparations. According to the European Council cover note,  the Conference “should advance the global transition towards a green economy, thus promoting environmental protection, contributing to poverty eradication and stimulating low carbon and resource-efficient growth”.
    Furthermore, the European Council aims that the Conference move work forward on coherent global post-2015 goals for sustainable development, while also taking into consideration the review process of the Millennium Development Goals. Likewise, the European Council has stressed that the Conference “should contribute to a strengthened global institutional framework for sustainable development which should include the upgrade of UNEP to a specialised agency”.

    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : Regional Fisheries

    As ministers at the 3140th Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries, adopted a decision authorising the Commission to open negotiations with the Republic of Mauritius, the EU  and that country have recently initialled a new Fishery Partnership Agreement (FPA) and Protocol.
    The new FPA repeals the previous 1989 Fishery Agreement, and focuses in particular on partnership and sustainability. The FPA establishes the principles and rules governing the economic, financial and scientific cooperation between the EU and the Republic of Mauritius in the fisheries sector. Its aim is to guarantee the conservation and sustainable exploitation of fisheries resources and develop Mauritius's fisheries sector.
    The Protocol provides the EU with fishing opportunities for vessels targeting tuna species. In return, the EU will pay Mauritius an annual compensation of EUR 660 000, out of which EUR 302 500 is earmarked to support the fisheries policy of Mauritius. Vessel owners will have to pay a license fee to be authorised to fish in Mauritius' waters, as is the case also now.
    The new Protocol is based on the scientific advice, to ensure the sustainability of the stocks, and takes into account the interests of artisanal fishermen. To avoid adverse effects on the small scale fishermen, EU vessels will only be allowed to fish beyond 15 miles (currently 12 miles) from the coastal baseline.

    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : ACP-EU Trade

    WTO members and representatives of other international organizations recently attended a workshop on Aid for Trade, sustainable development and the green economy, that was held at the WTO. The Chair of the Committee on Trade and Development, Ambassador Anthony Mothae Maruping, Lesotho, highlighted that Aid for Trade (AfT) contributes to sustainable development, though much more needs to be done to make green growth a reality.
    Mr. Maruping underlined that  “trade is an intrinsic part of the economic development pillar of sustainable development and that the WTO has a central role to play in ensuring environmental measures and green growth policies are not disguised forms of protectionism”. Furthermore,   he noted that sustainable development objectives influence the design and delivery of AfT implementation. “Least-developed countries are well-placed to adapt to the green economy but, like other developing countries, cost and access to technology are inhibiting factors”, he added.

    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : ACP-EU Trade

    The European Commission recently published its second Trade and Investment Barriers Report, which describes the progress achieved in dismantling barriers. The report recognises some success stories in the removal of certain trade barriers, such as in India. However, it  underlines the overall persistence of barriers for European business to access key markets. Dismantling these barriers would improve and open up new export and investment opportunities for European companies and people.
    Speaking of protectionism, EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht has said that the EU has “[…]to make sure that trade remains open in order to boost jobs and growth. [This] report shows that our enforcement strategy is paying off in fighting unfair barriers to trade and investment; yet, we need to strengthen our vigilance and double our efforts in order to make sure that openness is maintained worldwide. The EU's commitment to ensuring trade openness remains firm”.

  9. ENVI Committee to help give clarity to the food industry

    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : ACP-EU Trade

    According to MEPs voting on legislation in the Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) Committee this week, rules on the labelling and contents of baby milks and food for people with special medical needs must be better defined to protect consumers and give clarity to the food industry. Moreover, MEPS thought that the special rules should also cover gluten intolerance and certain low calorie diets.
    Frédérique Ries said he welcomed the vote,  as  it shows the EP has a clear goal to protect the more vulnerable members of our society, including infants and those with special medical needs. I particularly welcome the specific provisions for people affected by celiac disease, since intolerance to gluten can be lethal".
    The draft text will replace several existing pieces of legislation in order to streamline and clarify labelling and composition rules, which cover products representing around 1-2% of the total food market. The update was proposed due to problems faced by both consumers and authorities in distinguishing between foods for normal consumption and those for specific groups.

    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : Environment, ACP-EU Policy

    Following recent talks, the European Investment Bank (EIB) will allocate some US $65 million for a Climate Action lending and technical assistance programme that will benefit 18 member countries of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB). According to the Jamaica Observer, the new lending programme will provide long-term, low-cost funding for public and private sector climate change mitigation or adaptation projects. The loans will be complemented by technical assistance to improve climate change-related expertise in the Caribbean and  aid in the preparation of individual initiatives.
    Projects eligible for funding under the new programme include adaptation, renewable energy, sustainable transport, forestry and land use, and low-carbon technology research, development and innovation. According to the CDB, preliminary studies indicate strong demand among member States for funding of projects to improve shoreline defenses, upgrade water and sewage networks to protect them from storm surges and rising sea levels, improve drainage to cut the risks of hurricane flooding, and protect vulnerable transport networks..
    The 18 countries that can benefit from the lending programme are: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

  11. New EIPs on raw materials and agricultural sustainability
    2012-03-01
    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : ACP-EU Trade, Rural development

    The European Commission  proposed  this week decisive action to meet three key challenges facing our society: the supply of raw materials, sustainable agriculture, and active and healthy ageing. All three require a more concerted innovation effort across the public and private sector, in order to improve quality of life and position Europe as a global leader. The Commission has therefore launched two new European Innovation Partnerships (EIPs) on Raw Materials and on Agricultural Sustainability and Productivity.
    EIPs take a new approach to tackling the whole research-development-innovation chain, bringing together public and private stakeholders across borders and sectors in order to accelerate the uptake of innovation. They each have an ambitious target to reach by 2020, and are expected to start delivering results within 1-3 years. The announcement comes just ahead of a European Council that is expected to reaffirm the place of research and innovation at the centre of European economic recovery.
    The President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, said: "We need to innovate to get Europe back on the path to growth and jobs, and to tackle major challenges such as access to raw materials, sustainable agriculture and our ageing society. European Innovation Partnerships will break down silos, remove bottlenecks and focus our efforts on results that matter to our citizens and our businesses."
    It is worth mentioning that the EIP is a new concept that was introduced in the Europe 2020 flagship Innovation Union. The aim is to address weaknesses, bottlenecks and obstacles in the European research and innovation system that prevent or slow down good ideas being developed and brought to market

    According to Ms. Hannah Tetteh, the Ghanaian Minister of Trade and Industry, the country wants a consensus of the Economic Community Of West African States (ECOWAS) on the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with the EU. In an interview with the Financial Business Times, she stressed that in Ghana “[they] are actively engaged in the discussion on having an ECOWAS platform for the full EPA, but as a country we have the interim EPA as a fall-back should we not reach a consensus within the stipulated time-frame.”
    The Minister said a wider discussion on this issue is needed as there is much national interest. “It is true that in signing the full EPA we shall gain in some areas and lose in others, but we need to measure the gains against the losses and decide on what is best for the nation”, she added.

    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : Food Policy, Rural development, ACP-EU Trade

    In the course of the last meeting of the General Affairs Council, which took place in Brussels this week, ministers  adopted a regulation aimed at improving the functioning of the EU milk sector. The provisions on contractual relations in the milk sector and milk products come as a response to the deep crisis which affected this sector in 2008 and 2009, as well as the future abolition of the EU’s milk quotas regime from 2015.
    One of the main elements of the regulation include the reinforcement of the bargaining power of milk producers by allowing them to set up producer organizations that on their behalf negotiate collectively contracts for the deliveries of milk.

  17. ITRE Committee to help save energy and reduce CO2 emissions
    2012-02-29
    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : Environment

    According to a draft EU directive recently approved by the Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) Committee, EU member states would have to set themselves binding national energy efficiency targets and save energy. Notably, this directive would also reduce CO2 emissions, and hence demand for emission allowances under the EU's emissions trading scheme.
    The EU has set itself the task of achieving 20% primary energy savings in 2020 (currently a non-binding target), but the Commission estimates that if no measures are taken, the EU will only achieve half of that by 2020.
    Rapporteur Claude Turmes has said: "This vote is a major sign that Parliament […], takes rising energy costs and energy poverty seriously. Energy efficiency offers possibilities for job creation - notably in the building sector. Now governments have a choice: protect citizens against energy poverty and create many job opportunities or allow big energy companies to make ever-increasing profits".

    Following the 7th Meeting of the ACP/EU, which took place in Lusaka, Zambia, and started on Wednesday 22nd, 2012, ACP and EU parliamentarians said that the corruption and gender-equality gap hinder African development.
    Parliamentarians underlined that the fight against corruption requires “strong policies, adequate legislation on anti-corruption, independent media”. They also highlighted that “democracy goes beyond free organisations, transparent and credible elections.”
    Accordingly, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) member States were called to create legal and institutional mechanisms to promote gender equality in decision-making and political positions.
    Some trade issues were also discussed. Notably, parliamentarians stressed the opportunities for mineral-driven transformation in Africa if revenues generated by trade in that sector stayed in the region and not were drained outside.

  20. The malaria-fighting potential of vitamins
    2012-02-28
    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : Archive

    According to a recent study conducted by British and German researchers from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom,  vitamins could help fight malaria. The findings of the study, which were presented in the journal Structure,  suggest that vitamins may boost  the development of more effective drugs to fight this disease which, according to the World Health Organisation, affects more than 250 million people across 106 countries each year.
    As one of the biggest problems in trying to control malaria is the high degree of resistance developed by Plasmodium species (the parasite which causes Malaria) against treatments being used today,  finding new means of combating the disease is crucial.
    Previous studies have shown how antifolates targeting vitamins B9 and B6 biosynthesis of the malarial parasites play a vital role in the treatment of malaria. This study, which was partly funded by a grant under the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), identifies the malarial enzymes responsible for vitamin B6 biosynthesis with atomic three-dimensional (3D) structures. The team points out that vitamin B6 biosynthesis is a very organised process that involves an enzyme complex of 24 protein subunits. “The new data are a starting point for the development of specific inhibitors that target either the enzymes active sites or the assembly of the proteins into functional complexes”.

  21. Changes in energy deal-brokering with non-eu countries

    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : Environment, ACP-EU Trade

    According to most recent reports of the European Parliament Press service, the European Commission could vet proposed bilateral energy deals between EU Member States and non-EU countries for compliance with EU law under draft legislation approved by the Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) Committee this week. MEPs underlined what would happen if deals do not comply with EU law and inserted safeguard clauses to protect all parties.
    The legislative proposal, tabled by the Commission last September, would require EU Member States to share, with the Commission, the details of all bilateral energy supply deals that they negotiate with third countries. It would also enable the Commission to attend negotiations as an observer, and to check that the deals comply with EU law.
    The main aims of the draft legislation are to prevent the EU from being put in a vulnerable and disadvantageous position with regard to the security of energy supplies for industry, and also to ensure economic efficiency, sustainability and fair consumer prices.

  22. Molecule to help gain upper hand against Malaria
    2012-02-28
    NEWSLETTER_CATEGORIES : Archive

    A molecule that helps the malaria parasite evade the human body's immune system has been recently discovered by a team of international researchers from the Netherlands, UK, Australia and Japan. The findings of the  project, which was partially funded by the EU-backed EVIMALAR ('Towards the establishment of a permanent European virtual institute dedicated to malaria research'),  were presented in the journal Cell Host & Microbe. These could provide fresh insight into how the parasite that triggers disease can dodge the defences built by the immune system.
    One of the main reasons for scientists' inability to develop a viable malaria vaccine is because of the complex difficulties faced by the immune system with regards to the detection of parasite-infected cells. According to the senior author Professor Alan Cowman, from the Infection and Immunity division of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Australia,  the molecule discovered, named PfSET10, “plays an important role in the genetic control of PfEMP1, an essential parasite protein that is used during specific stages of parasite development for its survival”.  Building hopes he says : “we will be able to produce targeted treatments that would be more effective in preventing malaria infection in the approximately 3 billion people who are at risk of contracting malaria worldwide”.
