Minister Titus Corlăţean’s participation in the extraordinary meeting of the EU’s Foreign Affairs Council

Published

on

titus corlateanForeign Minister Titus Corlăţean attended on 17 January 2013 the extraordinary meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels. The meeting was convened on a fast-track procedure by the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, on account of the worsening security situation in Mali.

The ministers approached the Malian crisis, the goal being to focus the debates on specific items related to future EU actions, including identification of ways to support the Malian government. Concurrently, the ministers shared the assessment of High Representative Catherine Ashton on consolidating the European Union’s coordination with African partners and with the United Nations to the end of rapidly solving this crisis.

In his intervention, the Romanian Foreign Minister firmly condemned the actions of the terrorist groups fostering violence and religious extremism and enhancing the risk of destabilization in the entire sub-Saharan region. Moreover, he conveyed a message of support for France’s decision on military action in Mali, at the request of the Malian authorities, in order to halt the Islamic terrorist forces’ advance to the south of the country, stressing at the same time that restoring stability and the territorial integrity of the Republic of Mali must be one of the main priorities of the EU. These elements were also set forth during the bilateral meeting the Romanian Foreign Minister had with Mali’s Foreign Minister Tiéman Hubert Coulibaly.

Considering the military operation as a temporary element of the Malian crisis, Foreign Minister Titus Corlăţean referred to essential aspects related to identification of a permanent solution to the current situation in Mali: national reconciliation (including dialogue between the North and the South / between Bamako and the rebel groups that dissociate from terrorism) and establishing a political roadmap for the transition period, to be implemented subsequently.

The head of Romanian diplomacy underscored the need to continue the EU support for the authorities in Bamako with a view to restoring constitutional order by organizing general elections as soon as possible. According to Romania’s assessment, a legitimate and functional government in Bamako, capable of exerting its authority over the entire national and sovereign Malian territory, should be the main goal of the EU and the international community.

On the sidelines of the meeting, Minister tc had bilateral talks with the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton and approaches aspects of the bilateral relations with his counterparts from France, Germany, the Netherlands and with the ministers of European Affairs from Ireland and the United Kingdom.

VirtualCall – m-Training for Inactive Women Aiming their Employment as Call Center Agents at their Homes

Published

on

INCSMPS implements, together with 5 EU countries, the ERASMUS+ project VirtualCall- m-Training for Inactive Women Aiming their Employment as Call Center Agents at their Homes (2020-1-TR01-KA202-094553 “Erasmus+ Project”) aiming “to e-train inactive women for their e-employment as call center representatives, to work from their homes”.

The training concept also includes e-stage possibility for efficient and complete result achievement. After such a program, individuals will be ready to start working, without needing extra steps.

The MAIN OBJECTIVE is “to increase the employability of inactive women in a profitable scheme for both employee and employer, under current market conditions”. 

OUTPUT: Integrated e-Training and e-Stage portal supported by Android APP will allow future call center representatives to be e-trained and practice by means of calling each other and simulating clients in changing roles. Grading/rating anonymously and repetition of e- learning modules depending on the strengths/weaknesses, re-studying while repeating e-courses and similar features will bring the possibility of satisfactory self-evaluation before starting to actual work. 

IMPACT: After having this kind of e-training and e-stage opportunity, home-based employment possibility for inactive women will not be a dream any more. Thus, this will surely open a new challenging door for inactive women, including women with physical disabilities; for them to work from their homes and integrate themselves into labor market.

MEP Vasile Blaga: It’s vital that Romania continues to implement regional and local programmes through the EU cohesion package

Published

on

MEP Vasile Blaga (PNL, EPP) welcomes the positive vote of the Council of the European Union for the Cohesion Package 2021-2027 worth €330 billion, of which Romania will benefit from around €28 billion.

“The European Union’s main investment programme is cohesion policy. As far as Romania is concerned, the cohesion funds must continue to finance the development gaps between the older Member States and those that have integrated later. It is vital that Romania continues to implement regional and local programmes. At the same time, investments financed by the cohesion funds will to a large extent also ensure recovery from the pandemic, alongside the funds specifically earmarked through the NRDP”, said the NLP MEP for the news platform Calea Europeana.

According to MEP Vasile Blaga, “the two funding programmes must be complementary, both having sustainable objectives – from infrastructure funding to green transition and digitalisation projects”.

”The European Parliament will now vote on the Council’s position before it is published in the Official Journal of the European Union in June, most likely during the plenary session in Strasbourg”, added the EPP MEP.

The Council gave its final green light to the adoption of the cohesion package for the financial period 2021-2027.

The package is a set of regulations governing the structural and investment funds, which amount to more than €330 billion (in 2018 prices) or nearly one third of the EU’s long-term budget. The funds will finance regional and local projects designed to reduce economic and social disparities between member states and regions, while boosting a sustainable recovery from the pandemic by investing in green and digital priorities.

Europe Day. MEP Vasile Blaga: EU solidarity in the face of the pandemic has proved that this project is the only option for Romania’s present and future

9 May is a double anniversary, Romania’s Independence Day and Europe Day, two fundamental milestones for Romania, said MEP Vasile Blaga (PNL, EPP), in a message for Europe Day.

”We honour the past of our country which, on 9 May 1877, gained independence. We celebrate, also today, 9 May 1950 – the Schuman declaration which laid the foundations of the European Union,” he said.

“I would like each of us to ask ourselves a simple question: Where would we be now without integration into the European Union. What would this particularly turbulent period have looked like in Romania outside the EU? The Union’s solidarity in the face of the pandemic has proved to everyone that this project is strong, solid, and the only option for Romania’s present and future. I would like every Romanian who still has a trace of Euroscepticism to ask themselves these questions. They have only one answer – Romania is Europe – in the past, present, and future”, added the Romanian MEP.

Europe Day held on 9 May every year celebrates peace and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historic ‘Schuman declaration‘. At a speech in Paris in 1950, Robert Schuman, the then French foreign minister, set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe’s nations unthinkable.

His vision was to create a European institution that would pool and manage coal and steel production. A treaty creating such a body was signed just under a year later. Schuman’s proposal is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union.
