*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Fact that Study the Past can Help Build a Good Future, was Highlighted anew in EU Parliament's key Committee on Budgetary Control, as it results from Statements to "Eurofora" by its Experienced President, German ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP, Dr. Ingeborge Graessle :

During a Hearing of EIB's vice-President, former Prime Minister of Finland, Alexander Stubb, (for some of his Statements to "Eurofora", Comp. Infra, and at: ..., etc), that traditionally Important Committee (also known as "COCOBU"), examined EIB's Financial Activities for 2016, in order to judge whether and how it would agree on giving it a Discharge, with a Report Drafted by Italian MEP Marco Valli, of the EFDD Group, which is due to be Debated and Adopted by EU Parliament's Plenary Session of April 2018, (as President Grässle has just anounced).

- In this Context, when the Time Came for MEP's Questions, President Grässle, surprizingly asked Stubb about the Proportions and the Nature of "Private Capital" attracted by EIB's Activities that Year.

+ Speaking, Later-on, to "Eurofora", COCOBU's President clearly Stressed that, in Fact, this was, in her view, one among the Most Important Points.

Given the Crucial Role that EIB notoriously Plays for a Succesfull Implementation of EU Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker's Investment Plan, "Eurofora" asked Dr. Graessle to kindly Explain the reasoning behind her move.

 - It's simply Because we'd Better make Sure that there is Enough Private Capital attracted by the EIB, in order to Avoid Provoking, Otherwise, a Financial "Bubble", she sharply told us in Reply.

- And, when, astonished, "Eurofora" wondered how it might be possible, for a European Bank so Solid as EIB to eventually have to Face and Win against a Challenge such as a "Bubble", Dr. Grässle became more Specific :

- Since, if there wasn't enough Private Capital, that might mean that EIB would have used, then, Only Public Funds, Despite the Fact that Most of EU's Member States were InDebted", COCOBU''s President Explained to "Eurofora", with a smile.

- And the Fees were quite considerable, Back on 2016, she also added, in this regard.


- This making sense, Stubb naturally promised to provide asap all the required Data, in even more concrete Detail, just after having Boasted, earlier, that, as a matter of Principle, "EIB is (comparatively) Cheap", because "we have an <<AAA>> Rating", as he pointed out, inter alia also since "it's Not Possible to have a Bankruptcy for 28 Member States, taken All Together"...

+ Concerning Both the above-mentioned, and Other Various Data,  as well as an overall efficient "Transparency" Mechanism, that certain MEPs asked too, vice-President Stubb , while Promising to become even more forcthcoming asap, also Boasted that, Recently, the EIB would have "Reversed" a 50 Years Old , former "Communication Policy", which had been  "Resumed in the sentence : " No News" it's the Best !"


=> But, for us, from Now on, it's Exactly the Contrary : - "EIB is a Bank of Good News !", Stubb Concluded, ...


- Speaking Afterwards to "Eurofora", vice-President Stubb, smiling Brightly, Confirmed that he Really Meant such a Big Change in EIB's Communication Policy...


- However, concerning a series of Main Forthcoming Developments on certain Financial Mechanisms that EIB Believes Necessary in order too Boost EU's Economy nowadays, "it Depends on EU's Member States", (i.e. on EU Council's Decisions), Alexander Stubb, more Soberly but Clearly, Distinguished between EIB's own Acts and Advises.

 

Meanwhile, the above-mentioned Report by MEP Valli is due to be Debated and Voted by COCOBU on February in Brussels, before Final Decisions by the Plenary in public on April in Strasbourg, as Dr. Grässle said.

* EuroCorps, EU defence's etat major, which has just celebrated 15 years of age (1993 - 2008), is young enough to feel enthousiasm for missions to guarantee Human Rights, Peace and reconcilation : Strasbourg's Historic Symbols, but also maturing fast, (particularly under the current French EU Presidency), in order to prepare potentialy important developments in 2009 :

- "EUROCORPS" is a "unique tool" for "a Modern Europe", jointly managed by participating Nations without anyone deciding for others", to "support their efforts to promote Reconciliation, Peace and Human Rights' Values, which identify today's European ideal, with its Symbol-City : Strasbourg", stressed its Chief, Spanish General Pedro PITARCH, in a popular ceremony for the 15th Anniversary of the European Army Corps, at its Headquarters.

- "Today, we are ready and able to fullfil any Peace-keeping Mission may be decided by the Political leadership, since we can deploy up to 60.000 soldiers and/or other agents, mainly in land, but in coordination with Sea and Air operarions", (even to build vital Infrastructures, demining, keep public order, facilitate Elections, etc), said to EuroFora EUROCORPS' Spokesman and Press Director, Colonel Raul SUEVOS.

- "If there is an Agreement with the framework Nations, EUROCORPS could certainly contribute to guarantee manifold aspects of Peace setllements", told us recently General PITARCH.

EU Parliament asked, Summer 2008 in Strasbourg, " to place Eurocorps as a standing force under EU command", and "invited all (EU) Member States to contribute to it".

France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, and Luxembourg (participating with Funds, Telecoms and Officers), are EUROCORPS"' main "Framework Nations", due to be joined by Italy in 2009. Greece and Austria participate as "Contributing Nations", while Poland decided to upgrade its role. Turkey has liaison Officers for NATO relations, and even USA decided to send Officers to Strasbourg on 2009.

Observers await with impatience also the outcome of NATO's April 2009 Summit in Strasbourg in order to have a better view of EuroCorps' future.
