11-04-2018

Zawarcie nowego protokołu związanego z umową w sprawie połowów między UE a Mauritiusem wymaga uzyskania zgody Parlamentu Europejskiego. Protokół, który umożliwi unijnym statkom prowadzenie połowów na wodach Mauritiusu oraz określi uprawnienia do połowów dostępne dla floty UE, a także wkład finansowy UE, zostanie poddany pod głosowanie na kwietniowym posiedzeniu plenarnym.

International Agreements in Progress: Towards a fisheries agreement with Kenya

17-05-2017

In July 2016, the Council adopted a decision authorising the Commission to begin negotiations, on behalf of the EU, for the conclusion of a fisheries agreement and protocol with Kenya. The negotiations are planned for the coming months. This would be the first ever EU fisheries agreement with Kenya, and would complement the regional network of agreements previously concluded in the western Indian Ocean (Seychelles, Madagascar, Mozambique, Comoros and Mauritius).

In July 2016, the Council adopted a decision authorising the Commission to begin negotiations, on behalf of the EU, for the conclusion of a fisheries agreement and protocol with Kenya. The negotiations are planned for the coming months. This would be the first ever EU fisheries agreement with Kenya, and would complement the regional network of agreements previously concluded in the western Indian Ocean (Seychelles, Madagascar, Mozambique, Comoros and Mauritius). The agreements allow the EU fleet to pursue tuna migration in the waters of the countries concerned, in exchange for a financial contribution covering access to their waters and support for their fisheries sector. The EU tuna fleet in the region includes vessels from Spain, France, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Italy. While some of the activities of these vessels take place in the framework of EU fisheries agreements, they also operate, to a significant extent, in the high seas. In addition, a number of them also have access to the waters of third countries with which the EU does not have fisheries agreements, on the basis of private agreements. This is the case of Kenya's waters, where EU vessels have long had access through annual authorisations provided by the Kenyan authorities.

State of Play of EU-Mauritania Relations

23-02-2017

Mauritania, an important ally of the EU in the fight against terrorism in the Sahel, faces several inter-related development challenges: ensuring an efficient use of the revenue derived from natural resources, economic diversification and improved governance. The severity of these development challenges is increased by difficult political relations between the three main ethnic groups in the country, the dominant group being the Arab-Berber Bidhan. They constitute less than one-third of the country ...

Mauritania, an important ally of the EU in the fight against terrorism in the Sahel, faces several inter-related development challenges: ensuring an efficient use of the revenue derived from natural resources, economic diversification and improved governance. The severity of these development challenges is increased by difficult political relations between the three main ethnic groups in the country, the dominant group being the Arab-Berber Bidhan. They constitute less than one-third of the country’s population, but dominate economically and politically. The Haratin, the largest group in the country, is made up of descendants of black Africans enslaved by the Bidhan (freed or still enslaved). The third group in the country is the West Africans or Black Mauritanians. Mauritania’s post-independence history is marked by repeated attempts by this group to assert its non-Arab identity and claim for a more equitable share of political and economic power. The tension that these divisions create is a problem in itself, but they can also be appropriated by violent Islamist insurgencies in the region. The urgency of this challenge is further complicated by the likelihood of increased climate change effects that the country is currently not adequately prepared for. This study therefore discusses the main political, economic and development challenges that contemporary Mauritania is faced with, illustrating how these challenges can only be properly grasped with consideration to their historical evolution. Based on this, the study investigates the current basis for EU-Mauritania relations and suggests a select number of policy areas for consideration, as this relationship continues to evolve around issues of mutual concern such as security and development.

EU-Mauritania fisheries agreement: New protocol

02-05-2016

Of all the fisheries partnership agreements currently in force, the EU-Mauritania agreement is by far the most significant in economic terms. A new protocol, setting the details for implementation of the agreement over the coming four years, was signed and entered into provisional application in November 2015. Parliament's consent is now required for the conclusion of this protocol.

Workshop on "Market Economy Status for China after 2016?"

16-03-2016

Section 15 of China’s Protocol of Accession to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) allows importing WTO members to determine, under their national law, whether China is considered to be a market economy for the purpose of price comparability and of calculating dumping margins. Some provisions of this section expire on 11 December 2016, leaving uncertainty as to how China should be treated in antidumping investigations thereafter. The European Parliament’s Committee on International Trade (INTA) organised ...

Some provisions of this section expire on 11 December 2016, leaving uncertainty as to how China should be treated in antidumping investigations thereafter. The European Parliament’s Committee on International Trade (INTA) organised a workshop jointly with the Policy Department of the Directorate-General for External Policies in order to hear the views of different academic experts on both the legal and the economic implications.

Pozostał rok: debata na temat statusu gospodarki rynkowej Chin staje się coraz gorętsza

17-12-2015

Status gospodarki rynkowej – termin techniczny stosowany w postępowaniach antydumpingowych – znalazł się w centrum międzynarodowej debaty, powodując gorące dyskusje na temat tego, czy taki status zostanie wkrótce przyznany Chinom. Chiny twierdzą, że ich dokumenty przystąpienia do WTO przewidują automatyczne uzyskanie statusu gospodarki rynkowej po 11 grudnia 2016 r.

Status gospodarki rynkowej – termin techniczny stosowany w postępowaniach antydumpingowych – znalazł się w centrum międzynarodowej debaty, powodując gorące dyskusje na temat tego, czy taki status zostanie wkrótce przyznany Chinom. Chiny twierdzą, że ich dokumenty przystąpienia do WTO przewidują automatyczne uzyskanie statusu gospodarki rynkowej po 11 grudnia 2016 r. Niemniej jednak zdaniem wielu członków WTO przywoływany tekst – sekcja 15 Protokołu w sprawie przystąpienia Chińskiej Republiki Ludowej do WTO – podlega interpretacji. Kwestia jest delikatna z kilku powodów. Pod względem prawnym UE musi zapewnić zgodność swoich przepisów z przepisami WTO. Aspekty gospodarcze są jednak złożone – i potencjalnie zasadnicze dla znaczących sektorów gospodarki UE. Zdolność UE do zapewnienia równych warunków dla jej własnych produktów przemysłowych oraz importowanych z Chin jest uzależniona od zdolności UE do niwelowania niesprawiedliwie niskich cen chińskiego przywozu po cenach dumpingowych; instrumenty antydumpingowe, które UE wykorzystuje w tym celu zależą od statusu gospodarki rynkowej Chin. Kwestia ta ma również konsekwencje polityczne i może mieć istotny wpływ na relacje UE z innymi krajami. Ogólnie korzyści dla UE przyniosłaby bardziej rozbudowana ocena niż dokonana do tej pory, wniesienie wkładu przez Parlament Europejski oraz podejście bardziej skoordynowane z głównymi partnerami handlowymi.

Main Issues at Stake for the 27th Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol

12-10-2015

Four proposals to regulate hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) under the Montreal Protocol, including one from the European Union, are expected to dominate discussions at the 27th Meeting of the Parties (MOP 27) for this international agreement. HFCs are replacements for ozone-depleting substances and have a strong impact on global warming; the issue raises questions about links between the Montreal and Kyoto Protocols.

HFCs are replacements for ozone-depleting substances and have a strong impact on global warming; the issue raises questions about links between the Montreal and Kyoto Protocols. Ahead of MOP 27, Parties to the Montreal Protocol remain divided on the way forward and the outcome of discussions is unclear. This study was provided by Policy Department A for the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI).
