10:02:26 Soundbite by Antonio Tajani (in FRENCH) saying that they can help the citizens, for example blind people to walk in the street, they could also work in the agricultural field in order to reduce the polluting emissions; they could also rescue somebody who has fallen down in the sea thanks to Galileo; so there are tens of important applications which could guarantee an efficient use of public money which means 3,6 millions euros for the Galileo project; and he thinks that for 2014, they will be ready to work with Galileo, so the implementation will start in 2014. 00:00:52
