2nd informal meeting between the EC and the CEECs Ministers for the Environment: extracts from the opening speeches
On 16 September 1996, Ritt Bjerregaard, Member of the EC in charge of Environment and Nuclear Safety, organised a meeting to gather the Ministers for the Environment of the Central and Eastern European Countries (CEECs) for an informal discussion on environmental issues. In her opening speech, Ritt Bjerregaard said that, since their meeting one year ago, real progress had been made on the way towards accession, links have been intensified at all levels and a network of correspondents in each Ministry of Environment had been established. She also mentioned the visits she did in Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Latvia, Estonia and said she would plan to visit the five others next year. She added that these countries had important and large areas of land in their natural stage and CEECs had here an asset for membership. Hans van den Broek, Member of the EC in charge of External Relations with the Countries of Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, Mongolia, Turkey, Cyprus, Malta and other European Countries, Common Foreign and Security Policy and Human Rights and External Missions, reminded that CEECs would need to align their environmental legislation with that of the European Union. He also focused on investments that would also be needed and that amounts could be financed from national public sector budgets or the EU , through PHARE, but investment could also come from the private sector and the international financial institutions. Finally, Brendan Howlin, Irish Minister for the Environment and President in office of the Council, said the importance of improving the implementation and the enforcement of environmental legislation in the existing EU Member States.
