European Leaders’ Summit – 22-23/03/2018


 

Turkey and
Cyprus at the table!

The leaders will also discuss the Salisbury attack and relations with Turkey ahead of the Varna Leader’s meeting.

As a follow up to discussions at their informal meeting on 23 February and in light of the upcoming Leader’s Meeting in Varna on 26 March, the heads of state or government will discuss recent developments in relations with Turkey. They are likely to adopt conclusions which offer solidarity and support to Cyprus in the context of recent tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean.

President Tusk stated as well on 23 February 2018:
“This evening President Anastasiades and Prime Minister Tsipras informed us about the latest developments regarding Turkey’s illegal violations in the Eastern Mediterranean and in the Aegean. On behalf of all the EU leaders, I would like to express our solidarity with Cyprus and Greece, and urgently call on Turkey to terminate these activities. I reiterate our support for the sovereign right of the Republic of Cyprus to explore and exploit its natural resources, in accordance with EU and international law, including the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

These actions contradict Turkey’s commitment to good neighbourly relations and their normalisation with all Member States. We are ready to cooperate with Turkey and will assess at our March European Council whether the conditions are there to hold the Leaders’ Meeting with Turkey in Varna on 26 March.”

AB Çelik İhracatı % 50 Tehlikede…


 

Ya Türkiye?

Dünyadaki ham çelik üretiminin yarısını gerçekleştiren Çin’den sonra ikinci sırada gelen AB, küresel ham çeliğin yüzde 10’unu üretiyor. AB’yi yüzde 6 ile Japonya ve Hindistan, yüzde 5 ile ABD, yüzde 4 ile Güney Kore ve Rusya, yüzde 2 ile Türkiye ve Brezilya izliyor.

ABD Ticaret Bakanlığının 1962 Ticaret Genişleme Yasası’nın 232’nci Maddesi kapsamında imzalar atılmadan önce Amerika Uluslararası Çelik Enstitüsü Başkanı John D. Foster, Donald Trump’a gönderdiği mektupta, Türk çelik üreticilerinin de düzenlemeden muaf tutulmasını istedi. ABD’nin kararının, Çin ya da AB kadar önemli bir ticaret ortağı olmaması sebebiyle Türkiye’ye ve ekonomisine derin bir darbe indireceği sanılmıyor.

Trump, Türkiye’nin de aralarında bulunduğu 12 ülkeden ithal edilen çeliğe yüzde 53 vergi getirmeyi seçseydi, Türkiye’nin ABD’ye çelik ihracatı durma noktasına gelebilirdi. Trump’ın bu seçeneği seçmemiş olması, Türk iş dünyasında “kötünün iyisi” olarak yorumlanıyor.

EU : Court of Auditors’ Special report on Turkey


 

EU pre-accession assistance to Turkey: Only limited results so far

As a key foreign policy partner and candidate for EU membership, Turkey is the top beneficiary of EU aid outside the EU. We audited the effectiveness of 3.8 billion euro in pre-accession assistance in the areas of the rule of law, governance and human resources. We found that the assistance is generally well-designed and projects deliver outputs. However, mainly due to a lack of political will and because the Commission has made little use of conditions, EU assistance has insufficiently addressed some fundamental needs and the sustainability of results is often at risk. We therefore consider the effectiveness of the funding to be only limited and make a number of recommendations for improvements, including better targeting of funds and increased conditionality.
