    Penalty for the SNCM an inconsistent decision, says EESC President Henri Malosse Mr Malosse has called for the president of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, to ensure greater consistency among European policies, following the announcement that a penalty will be imposed on the Société Nationale Maritime Corse-Méditerranée (SNCM). He pointed out that a decision like this will affect not only a business, but also more than 1 400 direct employees and hundreds of indirect jobs and would further widen the gulf with the European public.

    Visit of Mr van Iersel to the Spanish Economic and Social Council On March 15th Mr van Iersel paid a visit to the Spanish Economic and Social Council (ESC) in his capacity as chairman of the Steering committee. He was kindly received, first by Mr Gonzalez de Lena, director of the Cabinet of the President of the ESC and Ms Margarita Bravo Torres, director for International Affairs, followed by a discussion with the President of the ESC, Mr Marcos Peña Pinto, and representatives of the social partners, including the agricultural sector. Mr van Iersel made clear that the role of the EESC in the framework of Europe 2020 is primarily to channel views of national civil society to the Commission in addition to the information the Commission gets from the governments. The EESC is also a platform for exchange of views between national organisations. The President of the Spanish Council qualified its position as explicitly pro-European.

    Visit of Mr van Iersel to the Hungarian Economic and Social Council On February 15th Mr van Iersel paid a visit to the Hungarian Economic and Social Council (ESC) in his capacity as chairman of the Steering committee. He was kindly received by Dr. Latorcai Csaba, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Human Resources, responsible for relations with the churches, minorities and social partners, and President of the ESC. Europe 2020 is an important theme. Engagement of the organisations is needed in order to commit all layers of society in the process of modernisation. To that end innovative ideas that can be brought forward by all participants, are being discussed while the social partners are consulted systematically on new bills, resulting in an ongoing social dialogue between the social partners and the various ministries, depending on the issues. The NRP is a very welcome opportunity to assess various processes in which all parties are taking part.

    Staffan Nilsson, for European Parliament News
    Open letter from President Nilsson to European Council President Herman van Rompuy ahead of the European Council Meeting 14-15 March 2013 Ahead of the European Council meeting on 14-15 March 2013, the EESC President Staffan Nilsson addressed the European Council President Herman van Rompuy, reminding him and the twenty-seven Heads of State and Government of the need for specific and operative answers to the issue of growth. Staffan Nilsson deplores the current efforts which are still far from living up to this challenge, as such a lack can only contribute to the negative effects of the current austerity focus: recession and poverty.
