*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/
- Replying Today to "Eurofora" Questions at the Press Conference on the 2021 Euro-Fair, (3-13 September 2021), which Traditionaly marks the Start of a New Economic and Political Season at the Franco-German Core of Europe, "Strasbourg-Events"' new Board President, Salem Drici, stressed the Growing Importance of both a "Green" and Digital Transitions on the making.

    "Eurofora", pointing at the splendid "Green" area, adjacent to the ReNovated and Extended Strasbourg's "Palace of Music and Congress" (PMC), where, for the 1st Time, the "Euro-Fair"s 2021 installations had just Started to be set up nowadays, (See relevant Photo), asked whether such an ostensibly "Green" atmosphere would be Developed also throughout the current "Transition" towards the 2022 opening of the "PEX" (for "Excibitions" Parc") New Mega-Building (designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma), given Also the notorious Healthy effects of Natural Oxygen open spaces, including in Facing the Virus' Pandemic...

    + In addition, we raised also a question on the potential importance of "Digital" aspects in Strasbourg's EuroFair (Comp., already : ..., etc) and Other such Mega-Events, both Nowadays and in the foreseable Future.

    - "Concerning your ("Eurofora"'s) Question on the "Transition" (2021-2022), indeed, we curently are in a Trend towards Increasing "Hybrid" events, with Both Presential and a Remote Parts, during the Coming Years. And, in "Strasbourg-Events", we Already have the Capacity to produce such Hybrid Events, and wish to Develop that", President Drici stressed.

    - "But, there will Always be a substantial part of Presential, because it's Important to Help People actualy and physicaly Meet eachother, as "Man is a Social Animal", and that's a Key element in our idea about the Human Relations", he also pointed out.

    + "On the Ecological Transition, we are very sensitive, and, indeed, wish to have several Eco-Responsible Modifications", he went on to Reply to our 2nd Question (Comp. Supra). "Therefore, we will be very keen into Including that ("Green") Dimension in All Events that we shall propose during the Next Years", Drici vowed. "Together with the Carbon-trace of all our activities", he added.

    ++ Similarly, Marie Lathoud, Director of Events' Organisation at the same entity, Replied to "Eurofora" that : - "Concerning the Natural Green Enironment issues and Transition, we are very sensitive, indeed. The New PEX (due to open on 2022) will have a special "Square", helpful for that purpose. It's also Strasbourg's "EuroMetropole" (with its New Chairwoman, Pia Imbs) which is sensitive on such matters", she observed.

- "On your ("Eurofora"'s) Question about the "Digital" Transition, this year (2021) we wanted mainly to help People meet eachother, physically", Lathoud explained. "But we have the capacity to produce Digital and "Hybrid" Events, and we shall use it in the forseable future. In the meantime, "Orange" (Mega-Phone-Company), which will be present this year, is due to make some interesting proposals", she announced. "Moreover, recently, we observed an impressive augmentation of Social Medias' discussions on the forthcoming Euro-Fair, bigger than ever"...

    With more than 300 entities presenting their activities and products, (not only from France, but also from Germany, Italy, and Other Countries, even China, etc), this Euro-Fair 2021 extends throughout some 30.000 m2, Outdoor areas included, adding PMC's Mega-Halls of 12.500 and 4.800 m2, will be Inaugurated on September 3, by Strasbourg's new, atypical "Green" Mayor, Jeanne Barseghian, (Comp. Barseghian's Replies to "Eurofora"s topical Questions at last year's 2020 Inauguration in : ..., etc), and a Political personality whose Identity will be officialy disclosed asap, as Lathoud told us.

-------------------------------------------------

    Meanwhile, President Macron's centrist pick for the 2020 Municipal Elections, former Socialist Deputy-Mayor Fontanel, didn't manage to win that bid, comming 2nd together with Center-Right's Republican young candidate Vetter, (See both's statements to "Eurofora", at : ... + ..., etc), but his Wife became the New French Ambassador/Permanent Representative to the CoE, (See, f.ex.: ..., etc), while, Nowadays, after important Post-Merkel German Parliamentary Elections nearby, later this year (2021), France notoriously prepares to enter a Crucial Period of forthcoming Presidential and Legislative Elections in the First Half of 2022, during which it would take over the rotating Presidency of the EU.

    The 88e Euro-Fair, Last Year, 2020, was the 1st in France to Dare Open Despite the Virus' Pandemic, while EU Parliament had Exceptionaly Suspended its Monthly Plenaries in Strasbourg. Euro-MEPs have now re-Started their Return back here recently, But it's still UnCertain what Impact might have on this 2021 Euro-Fair the Controversial "Sanitary Pass" just Imposed on most Collective Events... Drici claimed, earlier, that this would be a "Good Chance" for the Euro-Fair Organizers, mainly because it might ensure an Easy Identification of officialy certified Healthy People, (even if, in fact, this is not sure at all, given the currently growing Infections of and/or by so-called "Vaccinated" individuals using some new but few, controversial "novel tools" Authorized until now by the EU as "Vaccines", while still Excluding many others, and particularly "Classic" Vaccines based on Pasteur's main principles : See: .... + ..., etc). But, since All Not yet Vaccinated People would be "Pushed Back" from that EU-Fair 2021, as he added, (unless they have just passed a controlled "Test", with negative results, during the Last 3 Days), Obviously, it remains to be seen what might, eventualy, happen on the traditional Popularity of this Mega-Event...

Sarkozy and Merkel : June 2009 solution to May 2005 "NO" ?

 - Will French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel live up from June 2009 to their obvious Historic European mission to revitalize, and re-launch the "European Dream", after the series of 3 "NO" since May 2005 in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, by renewing, and changing the EU with fresh stimulus, big horizons, and values attractive for EU Citizens ?

Whatever views anyone might have, it's a Fact that, recently, EU's political spectrum didn't produce other more charismatic and popular EU leaders than Merkel and Sarkozy, starting from September 2005 and May 2007, respectively.

This trend was confirmed, in one way or another, both during the German EU presidency in 2007 (shared by Merkel with the SPD), and mainly during the French EU Presidency in 2008, (with Sarkozy "free" to move).


The positive 2009 EU Polls are a natural consequence :

- Both with 72% Sarkozy and Merkel are considered by EU Citizens to be "the most Influential" leaders in Europe, by far.

- They are the only EU political leaders to attract a Majority of "Positive" views by EU Citizens, (Merkel over 60%, Sarkozy over 50%, particularly in the continent).

- 60% of EU Citizens find the 2008 French EU Presidency "Good", (and the satisfaction grows up to 67,5% in continental Europe).

The Poll was made by "OpinionWay" in big EU countries as Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, (with the only exception of France), from 26 to 28 May 2009.

But the most important is that both Franco-German leaders seem willing to, at last, really start serious business on EU's indispensable renovation and Renaissance from 2009 : Year of crucial EU and German Elections.

Therefore, this time, the joint European move by Sarkozy and Merkel, which just published a common Franco-German Manifesto, aims to stimulate aspirations and action not only in their respective countries, but also in many other EU "partners", as they say.

Both on EU economy, social values and scientifico-technologic research, as well as on Turkey's controversial EU bid, obviously incompatible with a popular Political Europe, whose Citizens can find a collective Identity and popular Values, they have already started to magnetize various growing voices accross the European landscape :

"Today, more than ever, it' time for action", they stress from the outset.

Facing "an unprecedented Global financial and economic Crisis", "Europeans must get resolutely involved if they want for the World which is being built to meet their Values of Liberty, Solidarity and Justice".

"That's what we want" and "propose to our Partners" :

* "A strong Europe, able to protect us" :

- "We refuse a Bureaucratic EU, which mecanically applies burdensome rules and is afraid of change. We want a European Union which listens what Citizens have to say, which innovates, stimulates".

- "We want a strong and united EU in the World, while also respecting its Member States' Diversity", which "brings Courageous Replies to the Questions of our Times, ensuring our Prosperity :  

This implies to "favor Research and Innovation", "Economic Coordination", to "develop real Policies on Immigrationn, Energy, Defence, and modernise  common policies, particularly Agriculture".

*  "EU must bring immediate replies to the Global Crisis".

- "Lawless liberalism failed". "The Model we want is that of a Responsible Market Economy, which favors Enterpreneurs and Workers, above Speculators ;  Long-term Investment, over immediate profiits".

- "We appeal upon the EU to take, from June, the first decisions to ensure a real European Regulation of Financial Markets, based on coordination and cooperation". "On speculative funds, on fiscal heavens, CEO's and financial operators' earnings, EU must give the example".

- "We call to change the rules of accounts, which are important for our Economy's revival : The competent normative authorities must take action". "The issue of a sufficient Credit offer is of central importance for our Economy". "We don't accept that, during this Financial Crisis, the European Banks' capacity to lend money might be unjustly reduced by Capital's requirements and accountant's rules

* "During the German and French Presidencies, EU has resoçlutely prepared itself for the fight against Global Warming... EU is the 1st and only area in the World to have adopted a package of ambitious and legally binding rules to comply with International Aims"

- "We have now to convince our Friends and Partners, to get involved, in order to atteint, next December at Copenhagen, a Global Agreement worthy of whay is at stake. Our closer ally, the US, but also other big industrial countries, must commit themselves with the same force as the Europeans".

"Green Growth is a Chance ... and an opportunity to create jobs turned towards the Future. Europe must be a leader".

- But, at the same time, we must ensure that our companies remain competitive in the World. The ambitious European involvements on Climat must not lead into a position where EU industry might become a Victim of Unfair Competition. Climat protection and Competitvity must go together. If our International partners refuse to associate themselves to our efforts, we are determined to take measures to protect European Industry"

* "Europe must be more ambitious for its Industry" : "It must favor the emergence of strong European enterprises at a Global level".

- "As long as an International mechanism" to "monitor Public Aids at WTO level, and hinder 3rd Countries to give abusive subsidies to their enterprises, provoking unfair competition", is "not yet set up, we must consider Transitory European Solutions".

* "The current Public Debt is too heavy... We must head anew towards sound public finance, as soon as we'd have passed the crucial stage in this crisis".
-------------------------------------------------

* Last, but not least :  "Europe must play a top-level role in the World"

- "For that purpose,  it needs efficient Institutions. That's why we need Lisbon Treaty". "The 27 Member States decided, last December (2008) that the Treaty should enter into force before the end of this year (2009)". To obtain that, June EU Council must agree "on the Guarantees for Ireland".

- But, "to be able to act, EU needs Borders. An Enlargment without Limits is not possible", Sarkozy and Merkel stressed in an obvious reference to Turkey, etc.

- "In order to be strong, Europe must assume its Values and its Identity". "Human Rights .. are at the basis of our commitment for a Peaceful Development accross the World".

- "For that purpose, we shall strengthen our common Defence and Security policy".
----------------------

* "We are ready to contribute to activate the EU towards the realisation of these aims, with our EU Partners".

"In order to succeed", Europe  "needs the active involvment of all, starting by Citizens themselves. That's why the June 7 rendez-vous is important", and "we are calling all Europeans to vote".

"We are convinced that, if Europe wants, Europe can", they conclude.
-----------------------

Precisely : - What can better forge "Europe's Will" than a "European Consciousness" emerging from political, democratic struggles to face Global Challenges, and open big New Horizons, including by crystal-clear Public Debates, with active EU Citizens' involvement, before the most important EU Decisions affecting People's lives ?

Precisely what "EuroFora"s project warns since 1997-2007, and unprecedented Majority Abstentions, since 1999-2004, added to 3 "NO" to EU Referenda in 2005 and 2007, proved meanwhile..

Let's hope that the Time wasted by some scandalous anti-European and anti-Democratic obstacles of the Past, will stimulate faster, simplified but substantial and persistent, efficient action.-

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
