Important building blocks have been put in place - and some progress has been achieved - but much more needs to be done urgently.

The Investment Plan is moving across Europe - just like this famous river!

Last Thursday an agreement was signed to support 1500 small businesses in Hungary (!Gd76fF) while today a €19 million deal to bolster innovative companies in Sweden was announced (!Mg37cD).

This is made possible largely thanks to the European Fund for Strategic Investment – an initiative launched by the EIB Group and the European Commission to provide support for projects everywhere in the EU, including cross-border projects:

On this day in 1992, the Treaty on European Union, known as the "Maastricht Treaty", was signed. Representatives from the twelve member states were present, including Jean-Claude Juncker. It brought the three existing Communities (Euratom, ECSC, EEC) under one umbrella: the European Union.

A new stage in European integration with three pillars: the European Communities, Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), and police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters (JHA). The Treaty introduced the European citizenship, reinforced the powers of the European Parliament and launched the economic and monetary union (EMU). Besides, it put in place new policies as education and culture.

Economic Forecast per country and for the EU
The European economy is now entering its fourth year of recovery and growth continues at a moderate rate, driven mainly by consumption. At the same time, much of the world economy is grappling with major challenges and risks to European growth are therefore increasing.

In this photo album you will find the Economic Forecast per country and for the EU.!wG99Qp

Oceans cover around 70% of our planet. And 60% of that is high seas beyond the reach of any single country – effectively an internationally shared resource. What happens if these areas are not well managed?

In June 2015 we opened a public consultation and the results have been published. Commissioner Karmenu Vella will use these results to shape a new initiative on international ocean governance this year.!kC76rv

In Europe these days, on average children start using the internet at 7 years old - some even younger! Between the ages of 9 and 16, kids spend an estimated at 88 minutes a day online.

Let's make sure that #online also means #safe.

Today - Safer Internet Day [#SID2016] - learn about how to make the internet better for youngsters:

The European economy is successfully weathering new challenges this winter, supported by cheap oil, the euro rate and low interest rates. Nonetheless, the weaker global environment poses a risk and means we must be doubly vigilant. There is more work to do to strengthen investment, enhance our competitiveness in a smart way and complete the job of fixing our public finances

Hot spots and good National, regional, local administration will help to solve better the problems...some think? But they need to sort out their problems first find a common language to review and rethink and upgrade... It is not going to solve the problems but at least to protect 🛂 borders from unexpected other people that they are taking up illegal practices... For the safety and health of our Region...

The Commission is independent of national governments. Its job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole. It is headed by 28 Commissioners, 1 per country.

The European Commission (EC) is the 'engine room' of the EU. It is one of 3 main EU institutions; the other two are the European Parliament (EP) and the Council (of the European Union).

The Commission prepares legislation for adoption by the Council (representing the member countries) and the Parliament (representing the citizens).

It administers the budget and the policy programmes (Agriculture, Fisheries, Research etc.) in cooperation with authorities in the member countries. The EC also services the 27 EU Commissioners.
