Today is International Workers Day.
Finding a balance between work and family life is a real challenge both for men and women. EU legislation encourages EU countries to promote equal opportunities for moms and dads to balance work and family responsibilities & manage their childcare responsibilities.

Women in Digital

A 2013 study found that only 4 out of every 1000 female graduates in Europe go on to work in ICT-related activities. Do you feel like things have changed much since then?

The fact remains that women are under-represented at all levels in the tech sector. But this is something that we are trying to change: http://europa.eu/!JN33fN

Ahead of the 13th round of TTIP talks which began in New York today, we have published more documents from our trade negotiations with the US: http://europa.eu/!UQ47qp

What's included?

Regulatory Cooperation, for example: one of three main pillars of the trade deal. Here is what we presented to the US in the 12th round of negotiations on this subject: http://europa.eu/!FR64cq [PDF]

These texts can be somewhat legalistic so here's a guide to our proposal: http://europa.eu/!Wk83yX [PDF]

What are the benefits of Regulatory Cooperation? Check out our explanatory note: http://europa.eu/!yx44KP [PDF]

As part of our transparency initiative, we're not only publishing the negotiating texts we've given US negotiators, we're also producing position papers and factsheets to help to bring you up to speed. Find everything here: http://europa.eu/!qp74cK

We are negotiating TTIP as openly as possible and we will make the whole text of the agreement public once negotiations have been concluded, well in advance of its signature and ratification.

"The United States government is putting more intense and significantly more far-reaching pressure on the European Union than previously thought during the ongoing negotiations to reach an accord on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). This has become evident from copies of confidential negotiation documents that have been made available to Süddeutsche Zeitung and the German radio and television stations WDR and NDR. The material, consisting of 240 pages, was provided by Greenpeace and will be published this coming Monday. Several people familiar with the negotiations confirm that the documents provided are current." [...]

EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom on #TTIPleaks
 
Many media outlets are reporting this morning about supposed leaks from our negotiations with the United States on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership ( #TTIP ). As there seems to be quite a number of misconceptions floating around, a few things might be worth pointing out:
 
1. Contrary to what many seem to believe, so-called "consolidated texts" in a trade negotiation are not the same thing as an outcome. They reflect each side's negotiating position, nothing else. And it shouldn't come as a surprise that there are areas where the EU and the US have different views. There are areas in the TTIP negotiations where we have come a long way, but in others we are simply not in agreement.
 
2. In the past year, the European Commission has opened up the negotiations to make our positions on all matters in the negotiations public (you can find them here: http://europa.eu/!Xu64KY). After each negotiating round, we publish round reports as well as our position papers and textual proposals. So the positions of the EU are well-known and nothing new.
 
3. No, the EU industry does not have greater access to EU negotiating positions than other stakeholders. We take into account submissions by industry, but exactly the same applies to submissions by trade unions, consumer groups or health or environmental organisations – all of which are represented in the advisory group that regularly meets our negotiating team.
 
4. It begs to be said, again and again: No EU trade agreement will ever lower our level of protection of consumers, or food safety, or of the environment. Trade agreements will not change our laws on GMOs, or how to produce safe beef, or how to protect the environment.

Mr. Obama's administration have been worked quite honesty but there is no secure what the next personel will do on worst case of result from rigged US elections.

More than a dozen banks will have to turn over details of their dealings with Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca to New York’s banking regulator, as authorities continue to respond to revelations from the Panama Papers investigation.
The order came from the New York Department of Financial Services and was sent to 13 foreign banks identified in articles published by ICIJ and its media partners, including Deutsche Bank AG, Credit Suisse Group AG, Commerzbank AG and ABN Amro Group NV

A report by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, titled Delaware: An Onshore Tax Haven, said the state’s tax code made it “a magnet for people looking to create anonymous shell companies, which individuals and corporations can use to evade an inestimable amount in federal and foreign taxes”

In August 2012, Hillary Clinton became the first secretary of state to visit the islands. Her public remarks on the main island, cq Rarotonga, capital is Avarua, on Rarotonga did not contain a word about the trusts. A Congressional Research Service study on tax havens released in January cited offshore trusts, in the Cooks and elsewhere, as possible conduits for evading taxes, with little follow-up.

Protecting European consumers: toys and clothing top the list of dangerous products detected in 2015

As more products from outside Europe are being bought online every day, more unsafe items are being detected in the EU. In 2015 over 2000 dangerous products triggered EU-wide alerts, 62% of which came from China.

Through our Rapid Alert System, we are working with EU Member States and businesses to ensure than unsafe goods are removed from the European market.
For example, toys containing phthalates (plastic softeners which can cause fertility problems) or clothing/fashion items with harmful heavy metals like nickel and lead.

Urban transport still accounts for a significant share of air pollution in our cities. Winners, Murcia (Spain) and Malmö (Sweden), prove that shifting to more sustainable transport is possible, without any loss of comfort. On the contrary, a greater number of transport options can save people time, keep us active and improve the quality of the air we breathe. Congratulations! http://europa.eu/!Bn37hH
