News from the Communication Directorate General's midday briefing

Nouvelles du rendez-vous de midi de la Direction Générale Communication

La Commission a publié le Rapport général sur l'activité de l'Union européenne consacré à la vie de l'Union en 2008. Parmi les faits marquants de ces douze mois, la crise financière internationale, le changement climatique et plusieurs conflits internationaux ont fait l’objet d’une réaction européenne rapide et efficace, plaçant l’Union au premier rang sur la scène politique mondiale. Le processus de ratification du traité de Lisbonne, ralenti à la suite de la victoire du «non» au référendum irlandais du printemps et relancé lors du Conseil européen de décembre, a constitué l'évènement institutionnel de l'année.

The European Commission has adapted the nature of the technical assistance it receives to facilitate its monitoring of Microsoft's compliance with the Commission's 2004 Microsoft Decision (see IP/04/382 and MEMO/04/70). In light of changes in Microsoft’s behaviour, the increased opportunity for third parties to exercise their rights directly before national courts and experience gained since the adoption of the 2004 Decision, the Commission no longer requires a full time monitoring trustee to assess Microsoft’s compliance. In future, the Commission intends to rely on the ad hoc assistance of technical consultants.

Danuta Hübner, European Commissioner for Regional Policy, will be in the Czech Republic on 5-6 March to visit EU-backed projects in the Northeast Region and Central Bohemia, as well as to participate in the European Summit of Regions and Cities in Prague.
