Headline: 20. Okt. 16: DHL eröffnet deutschen und europäischen Unternehmen den Exportmarkt Iran

DHL Freight ebnet europäischen Unternehmen den Weg für Exporte in den Iran. Dafür hat DHL Freight in seinen Depots in Frankfurt am Main und Istanbul entsprechende Kompetenzzentren eingerichtet. Als Reaktion auf den Abbau der Wirtschaftssanktionen und die positive wirtschaftliche Entwicklung des iranischen Handels steigt die Nachfrage nach Logistik-Lösungen. Mit wöchentlichen Stückguttransporten und europaweiten Teil- und Komplettladungen unterstützt DHL Freight Unternehmen beim Export ihrer Qualitätswaren in die Region.”Wir freuen uns sehr über die neuen Möglichkeiten, die uns der iranische Markt bietet. Die jüngsten politischen und wirtschaftlichen Entwicklungen bringen erhebliche wirtschaftliche Potenziale mit sich. Unsere Kompetenzzentren möchten Unternehmen, die zunehmend neue Handelsbeziehungen mit dem Iran eingehen, mit seiner langjährigen Expertise unterstützen diese Potenziale zu heben”, sagte Amadou Diallo, CEO DHL Freight.
DHL Freight hat hierzu diverse Kernleistungen definiert, wie zum Beispiel wöchentliche Sammelgutabfahrten nach Teheran ab dem Gateway in Frankfurt am Main. Weitere Leistungen sind Gefahrguttransporte, temperaturgeführte Transporte (+2 bis +25 Grad Celsius), Lagerlogistik, Zollabwicklung und die GPS-Überwachung von Waren. Außerdem kann über das DHL Freight-Netzwerk Fracht aus ganz Europa mit dem Ziel Iran abgewickelt werden.
Die deutsch-iranischen Wirtschaftsbeziehungen haben eine lange Historie. Etwa 30 Prozent der industriellen Infrastruktur des Irans stammen aus deutscher Produktion. Durch das Inkrafttreten der internationalen Sanktionen sind die Handelsbeziehungen allerdings seit 2007 rückläufig und haben sich erst 2014 mit einem Handelsvolumen von rund 2,7 Milliarden Euro wieder positiv entwickelt. Allerdings war in 2015 wieder ein Rückgang um 10 Prozent zu verzeichnen1. Im Zuge des sogenannten “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action”, oder auch “Wiener Vereinbarung” genannt, sollen nun über mehrere Phasen hinweg die Sanktionen gegen den Iran aufgehoben werden. Die zweite Phase wird spätestens im Oktober 2023 abgeschlossen sein und der komplette Sanktionsabbau soll bis 2025 vollständig im Rahmen des “Termination Day” erfolgen2. Deutsche Wirtschaftsverbände stimmt diese Entwicklung positiv und man geht von einer Zunahme des bilateralen Handels aus, der allerdings auch eine funktionierende Logistik und stabile Lieferketten voraussetzt.

20 Октября 2016

ВТБ получил возможность снизить ставки для компаний малого и среднего бизнеса, участвующих в Программе стимулирования кредитования субъектов малого и среднего предпринимательства («Программа 6,5»), реализуемой АО «Корпорация «МСП» совместно с Банком России.

Благодаря снижению с 1 октября 2016 года комиссии Корпорации МСП за поручительство перед Банком России стоимость кредита для участников «Программы 6,5» теперь составляет 9,6% годовых для среднего бизнеса и 10,6% – для малого (ранее ставки составляли 10% и 11% соответственно).

Комментируя это событие, заместитель президента-председателя правления ВТБ Михаил Осеевский отметил: «Программа 6,5» – это инструмент реальной поддержки бизнеса, и мы рады, что можем сделать его еще более доступным и эффективным. Снижение комиссии Корпорации МСП – института, созданного государством, – это очередное подтверждение стратегии развития реального сектора экономики. При ранее действовавших ставках мы стали лидерами среди российских банков, заключив более 200 кредитных соглашений на общую сумму более 33 млрд рублей. С обновленными ставками мы рассчитываем, что количество выданных кредитов будет расти и дальше».

Bundesregierung muss Erdogans Kriegsverbrechen an den Kurden verurteilen

Headline: Bundesregierung muss Erdogans Kriegsverbrechen an den Kurden verurteilen

„Der Terrorpate Erdogan bombardiert die Kurden in Syrien und bekämpft damit die entschiedensten Gegner des IS und anderer islamistischer Terrorbanden. Die Bundesregierung muss dieses Kriegsverbrechen unmissverständlich verurteilen, die Bundeswehr aus der Türkei abziehen und Waffenexporte stoppen“, erklärt Sevim Dagdelen, Sprecherin für Internationale Beziehungen der Fraktion DIE LINKE, anlässlich der Bombardierung und Tötung von mehr als 200 Kurden durch die türkische Luftwaffe. Dagdelen weiter:
 „DIE LINKE hat immer wieder davor gewarnt, dass an die Türkei übermittelte Aufklärungsdaten der deutschen Tornados von Ankara an islamistische Terrorgruppen weitergegeben werden könnten. Zudem kann die Bundesregierung nicht ausschließen, dass die deutschen Aufklärungsdaten für Erdogans Krieg gegen die Kurden verwandt werden. Allein deshalb ist es höchste Zeit, die Bundeswehr aus der Türkei abzuziehen. Zudem verbietet es sich, eine neue AWACS-Mission der NATO mit deutscher Beteiligung in Syrien zur Unterstützung der verbrecherischen Politik Erdogans auf den Weg zu bringen.“

European research needs both women and men

Headline: European research needs both women and men

Brussels/Vilnius, 20 October – The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) and the European Commission today addressed the challenge of making research organisations and the higher education sector equal for both women and men by launching a new tool to support the research community: GEAR, the abbreviation for “Gender Equality in Academia and Research”. The two institutions provide universities and research organisations with practical steps to make institutional change in the research sector, which is still dominated by men. The tool was presented to top political decision-makers and leaders of academia in Brussels.EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas said: “In Europe, we have come a long way in promoting gender equality in science. But while women now account for about half of the PhD graduates, they are still underrepresented among researchers, full professors and heads of institutions. Therefore I call on research organisations and universities to further promote equal opportunities amongst their staff with the help of gender equality plans and the sharing of best practices.”
The GEAR tool gathers the good practices of universities and research organisations and bases itself on the findings of EU funded projects in the field of Gender Equality Plans and institutional change.
In the global market for ideas, attracting talent is a key for innovation and success. In addition to companies, universities and other research performing organisations have to compete for the best. Making sure that no one is left behind because of their gender or discriminated against on other grounds is also essential. 
EIGE’s Director Virginija Langbakk explained: “European research cannot afford not using its full potential. We must make the best use of every person’s knowledge and transform existing barriers into opportunities. The GEAR tool helps universities and research organisations create an environment that empowers and inspires both women and men. Improving our talent pool will also contribute to a more competitive Europe.”
According to the She Figures 2015, women in the European Union represent more than half of graduate students in 2012, but account for only 33 % of all researchers. The gender gaps are even larger among top academics and heads of higher education institutions.
Gatekeeping and vertical gender segregation is still a persistent reality in the research sector. Today we presented a tool to make institutional change happen.

Commission puts forward commitments to reach global targets in sustainable urban development

Headline: Commission puts forward commitments to reach global targets in sustainable urban development

The New Urban Agenda, adopted at the U.N. Habitat III Conference taking place this week in Quito, Ecuador, contains guidelines to make cities all over the world more inclusive, green, safe and prosperous. It is a cornerstone in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other milestone reform agendas, in particular the Paris Agreement.
U.N. Habitat partners, including the EU and its Member States, presented commitments to implement the New Urban Agenda, each with a specific scope, expected achievements and deliverables.
Speaking from the U.N. Habitat III Conference, Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu said: “Our commitments are building on the EU’s experience in urban policy over the years, with programmes and projects that have delivered. It is time to extend their concept beyond the EU’s borders. It will put the EU at the forefront of the global effort to harness the power of rapid urbanisation, and turn it into opportunities for jobs, growth and an improved quality of life for all.”
The three commitments are:
Delivering the New Urban Agenda through the Urban Agenda for the EU
The New Urban Agenda andthe Urban Agenda for the EU share the same vision for balanced, sustainable and integrated urban development.
The Urban Agenda for the EU was designed for cities to have their say in policy-making. With its 12 priority themes, multi-level governance and focus on peer-learning, the Urban Agenda for the EU contributes to the implementation of the New Urban Agenda within the EU, and in partnership with urban stakeholders – not only cities, but also businesses, NGOs and representatives from the Member States and EU Institutions.
Action plans for the 12 priority themes are being drafted. They will include policy recommendations, good practices and projects to be shared and scaled up in the EU.
Developing a global, harmonised definition of cities
To compare data, to benchmark and to monitor better, a common definition of cities should be used across the globe. In partnership with the OECD and the World Bank, the EU will develop such a definition, relying on the EU-OECD definition of cities, based on population size and density and the EU degree of urbanisation.
An online database will be developed, as well as a global list of cities and their main features. A proposal for a global definition of cities will eventually be submitted to the United Nations.
Fostering cooperation between cities in the field of sustainable urban development
Drawing on the solid approach of the EU-funded URBACT network and on the methodology of the EU’s International Urban Cooperation (IUC) programme, cities across the world[1] will be encouraged to link up with one or more partner cities to develop and implement local action plans and projects on common priorities – access to water, transport systems, health or housing. Business partners should be closely associated in the drafting and implementation of these action plans.
An online networking platform will provide guidance and enable cross-regional cooperation.
Background

€2.5 billion available for Erasmus+ in 2017, a 13% increase compared to 2016 and record rise since the start of the Erasmus+ programme
Today, the European Commission published its 2017 Call for Proposals for Erasmus+, the European Union’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. For 2017, funds available for the programme have increased by almost €300 million compared to 2016, also representing a record annual rise of funds since the first year of the Erasmus+ programme (2014). This will benefit Erasmus students, but also teachers, apprentices, volunteers and young people involved in sport projects, while also supporting cooperation between education institutions, youth organisations and businesses. As in 2016, priority will be given to projects promoting social inclusion. Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, said: “I am very pleased that we will have €2.5 billion in 2017 to build on our activities to reach out to a broad range of people with different interests, profiles and social backgrounds. Ahead of its 30thanniversary next year, Erasmus+ is at cruising speed and offers more opportunities for people and projects than ever before.” The increase in budget is an acknowledgement of the positive impact of the programme on the lives and personal projects of people all over Europe. As the European Commission’s President Jean-Claude Juncker highlighted in his annual State of the European Union speech on 14 September, Erasmus+ is of major importance as it gives people the chance to move, travel, work, study and train in countries across the EU. The funds available for 2017 will also be used to implement the European Solidarity Corps announced in the same speech. From today, organisations wishing to apply for funds can start to prepare their grant applications. More background information is available online.

Les fonds de la politique de Cohésion investissent dans le transport durable en Hongrie
La Commission a approuvé un grand projet, avec une contribution de 30 millions d’euros du Fonds de Cohésion pour améliorer la connexion ferroviaire entre Budapest et Székesfehérvár, en Hongrie centrale. Commencé dans la période 2007-2013, le projet consiste à moderniser la ligne de chemin de fer qui se situe sur le corridor Méditerranée du Réseau Transeuropéen de Transport  (RTE). “Ce projet soutenu par l’UE aura un double impact positif: sur l’environnement, en investissant dans le transport durable et en désengorgeant les routes vers la capitale, et sur l’économie, en facilitant le commerce et le tourisme,” a commenté la Commissaire à la politique régionale, Corina Crețu. Cette ligne internationale, importante tant pour le fret que le transport de passagers, relie la Hongrie à la Slovénie versla région méditerranéenne. Elle dessert également le lac Balaton et permettra de réduire le temps de voyage grâce aux travaux de modernisation qui seront engagés, ce qui sera bénéfique pour le secteur touristique dans la région. Le projet devrait être achevé à l’été 2018. Une enveloppe de 25 milliards d’euros a été allouée à la Hongrie au titre des Fonds Structurels et d’Investissement Européens (Fonds ESI) pour la période 2014-2020.

Romanian small businesses to benefit from new funding under the SME initiative
Today, the European Commission welcomes the signature of the funding agreement between the European Investment Bank (EIB) Group and the Romanian Government, the first step in the implementation of the SME initiative in the country. The programme, worth €100 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and combined with additional resources from the EIB Group and Horizon 2020, will leverage almost €580 million of new loans for Romanian SMEs and start-ups. European Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, said: “Romanian SMEs are competitive and provide the vast majority of job opportunities in the country. They just need an additional boost to expand beyond their local markets and develop their research and innovation capacity. And the SME initiative will help them do just that.” Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu added:”I am proud to see Romania in the leading group of Member States implementing this Initiative and using the European Structural and Investment Funds in an innovative way. It is a concrete response to the challenges Romanian small businesses are currently facing.” (For more information: Jakub Adamowicz – Tel.: +32 229 50595; Sophie Dupin de Saint-Cyr – Tel.: +32 229 56169)

Authorities to investigate death in Žodzina jail

MIL OSI – Source: Viasna Belarus Human Rights Center in English – Press Release/Statement

Headline: Authorities to investigate death in Žodzina jail

The Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case into the death of Aleh Bahdanau, an inmate of Žodzina jail No. 8, on 29 January 2016.

The decision came nearly eight months after the victim’s mother, Maryna Bahdanava, filed her first complaint against the prison staff, who, according to the woman, failed to provide proper medical assistance to her son.

Aleh Bahdanau had a cardiac disease, and in 2014 he underwent heart surgery. After the surgery, he had to take medicines, regularly undergo tests and be under care of a cardiologist. All this could not be provided in detention. Shortly before his death Bahdanau complained about the lack of treatment and harassment by the prison staff, since for health reasons he was forced to break prison rules, namely lay on the bed in the daytime. Aleh Bahdanau was sent to solitary confinement for violations of prison rules, although his sentence had not entered into force (afterwards, the conviction was overturned by a court of appeal), and died on January 29. His body showed injuries typical of a beating.

Ms. Bahdanava wrote to the city office of the Investigative Committee asking to investigate the improper performance of professional duties by the medical staff of prison No. 8. However, the authorities refused to open a criminal case, saying that the death occurred as a result of the prisoner’s  disease, which was not caused by the actions of third persons.

The woman later submitted two more requests, but the Investigative Committee again refused to open a criminal case again. As a result, Ms. Bahdanava appealed against the decision to the Prosecutor’s Office of Minsk region.

Finally, on October 5, during a personal reception at the office of the Investigative Committee’s Chairman, the mother was told that the death of her son would be investigated as part of a criminal case under Part 2 of Article 162 of the Criminal Code (“improper performance of professional duties by a medical officer, which negligently caused the death of a patient”).

Meanwhile, the Maskoŭski District Court of Minsk has completed the consideration of a similar criminal case opened under the same charges. Paramedic Aliaksandr Krylou was accused of failing to provide timely assistance to Ihar Ptsichkin, an inmate of Minsk jail No. 1, who died while serving arrest in August 2014. The prosecutor asked to sentence the defendant to 3 years of imprisonment in a penal settlement. The verdict in the case is expected in the near future.
