This is the important lesson which has been learned during the economic crisis. At a conference in Brussels on 6th of June, the Commission will therefore send the clear message, that more focus needs to be put on reversing the current trend of evolution of industry in the EU. The conference will look at the progress made since autumn 2012 when the Commission adopted its blueprint for raising industry’s contribution to EU GDP from 15.2% to 20% by 2020. The focus will be on what urgent further action can bring immediate benefits to help restore industrial growth and to make manufacturing industry an engine of growth. Join President Barroso, Vice President Tajani, Industry Ministers and leading EU business leaders on this occasion in an open debate about the future of industry. In particular, the conference will look at how national and European efforts can maximise the effectiveness of EU interventions? Can Europe do more to coordinate industrial policies in a partnership approach?

This criminal activity deprives Member States of over €10 billion revenue every year in terms of unpaid taxes and duties. While helping to fund criminal organisations, this problem damages not only national revenues but also threatens legitimate business and undermines health policy initiatives. Given that smuggling is an international problem with criminal networks operating across borders, a coordinated EU approach is the only effective way to tackle the problem.

The main aims of the PEACE III Programme are to reinforce progress towards a peaceful and stable society and to promote reconciliation by assisting operations and projects which help to bring communities together and contribute towards a shared society for everyone. The launch of the PEACE Programme in 1995 was the direct result of the European Union’s desire to respond positively to new opportunities in the Northern Ireland peace process during the paramilitary ceasefire announcements. Since then the EU has provided additional financial assistance through the PEACE II Programme as well as the current PEACE III (2007-2013), with a total of €1.3 billion. The programme's strong emphasis on bottom-up involvement brings communities together at local level to create a shared vision of society, work together on shared community infrastructure and acknowledge and deal with the past. The pictures will include images of cross-community projects for both adults and children. Nationalist and Loyalist areas of the city have benefited from the projects and there are general views of the areas and of Belfast city centre. The stockshot also include sound bites from participants and organisers, pictures of the closed Maze/Long Kesh prison which will be the future site of A Peace Building and Conflict Resolution Centre.

Under the final agreement that was reached after more than a day of straight debate, the text conserves the original wording that "The shared objective of the negotiations is [Turkey's] accession". The agreed text also adds that "While having full regard to all [EU political criteria], including the absorption capacity of the Union, if Turkey is not in a position to assume in full all the obligations of membership it must be ensured that Turkey is fully anchored in the European structures through the strongest possible bond". Ankara was also concerned about the paragraph in the draft negotiating framework which insisted that Turkey "progressively align" its policies in international organisations with that of the EU. This paragraph was feared in Ankara to eventually allow Cyprus to join NATO. However, the dispute on this point was finally settled after Turkey received reassurance from lawyers as well as from US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that NATO was not an issue in the EU talks.
