*Strasbourg/Palace of Music+Congresses/Angelo Marcopolo/- The projected International Business Center, located right in front of EU Parliament's building for its Monthly Full Plenary Sessions in Strasbourg, and near the PanEuropean CoE's HeadQuarters, has already Succesfuly completed a Bid for its 1st Part, earlier this Summer, and is now preparing a 2nd Bid for the Rest of this Prestigious area, (situated also amidst a Splendid Rivers' crossring, a Sports' Parc with Swimming Pool, Tennis, Volley and FootBall yards, Body-building facilities, Tram and Bicycle Networks linking DownTown Strasbourg to the Forest of Robertsau and at the Rhine-Rhone Rivers' linkage,  etc, side by side with a Beatiful "Green" Village of cosy Tiny Family Houses (almost like New Yorkd's "Greenwich Village"), told "Eurofora" Strasbourg's Director for European/International Relations, Nawel Rafik-Elmrini, who is also President of the Board in "Strasbourg-Events" Public-Private Partnership conglomerate, focusing on European/PanEUropean/International Convention and Exhibitions' hosting.

    - Already, "2 Prime Ministers" of France, "are Inaugurating Strasbourg's Euro-Fair", she noted, (Jean-Marc Ayroult, on.... :See his Reply to "Eurofora" Question at :....) and now Manuel Valls, expected on September 2, 2016), where even Pan-European CoE's Secretary General, Thornbjorn Jagland, (a former Prime Minister of Norway himself: See his Replies to "Eurofora"s Questions at :.... ), after several former EU Affairs Ministers, in an area which has also been visited by the former President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, (currently Head of Main Opposition "Republican" Party), who had Inaugurated a New Big Multi-Modular outlet nearby, added even to a Working Visit of the Entire French Government, in full Format, as early as since 2007, while another former Long-Time President, Jacques Chirac, had chaired a PanEuropean CoE's Heads of State/Government Summit (Comp.f.ex., "Eurofora" co-Founder's Publication then at"TCWeekly" - attached herewith) at nearby PMC (now ReNovated) back on 1997, and was a Key-Note Speaker, (together with former NATO's SG, then  the British Lord Robinson), during a landmark NATO Assembly's Plenary Session, back on 1999, when the "Hot" Issue about EU's wish to Develop an "Autonomous" Security and Defense Policy had been openly Discussed, precisely as Now, after a Tripartite Franco-German-Italian Summit, with Hollande, Merkel and Renzi, respectively, at an Historic  Central Italy's islet, in view of the Forthcoming, 1st 27 EU Member Countries' Heads of State/Government Summit in Bratislava (at Slovakia, current Holder of EU Council's rotating EU Presidency for the period of July - December 2016).

    - On this occasion, the New Director of "Strasbourg - Events" outlet, a Public-Private Partnership overseing All Main Public Mega-Events due to be Hosted anywhere around Strasbourg's "Euro-Metropole", Stephane Hertzog, speaking, later-on, to "Eurofora", anounced that the Official Public Inauguration Date for the New "PMC"would be "the 15th of September", i.e. on that Thursday, in recent years a Concluding Day of EU Parliament's Plenary Session, which, Now, by a Timely "Coincidence", will be also the UNO-sponsored "International Day of Democracy"...

    ++ Hertzog also pointed out at "Eurofora" that, among various other Forthcoming Mega-Events, scheduled for Autumn 2016, is included an "e-3M"European/International Conference on Medical Science Innovations, while New PMC's considerably Extended Mega-Buildings have now become largely "Modular" (i.e. adaptable to Both Small, Middle or Huge Gatherings,even in Parallel, at the Same Time), and "fully Wirred", i.e. equiped with Internet Access, Electricity links, Communication Facilities, etc., "Able to Host any EU, PanEuropean or International Mega-Event", as he stressed.


----------------------------
+ "Digital" Mark on 2016 "Euro-Fair", with "Connected Space" at innovation Award "Lepine" + Tunisia Guest of Honour.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


    This Fits quite well to the "Digital" Mark of this Year's, 2016 Annual "Euro-Fair", as Rafik-Elmrini told Strasbourg's Journalists, including "Eurofora", earlier at her Press Conference, where she also pointed at the "Connected Space" (alias "Universaly Wirred" area), reserved now for the 115th Anniversary of the prestigious "European Innovation Award Competition Lepine", (Comp. relevant Statements of Lepine Innovation Award's President, Gerard Dorey, to "Eurofora", at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/innovationawardpresidentondroneneareuparliament.html).


    It's also one among the Pioneer Developing Countries Worldwide, often engaged in "Digital Society" Transformations, from Hosting UNO's relevant Global Conferences, to Boosting e-Government, Digital Education and e-Businesses, as well as Private and Personal Data Protection, according to CoE's and EU's Legal Standards, Tunisia, which deserves to "receive a Message of Solidarity" Today, by being Welcomed as the "Guest of Honour" if this 2016 "EuroFair", as had stressed Rafik-Elmrini from the outset, (See relevant Statements of Tunisian Consul General Trabelsi to "Eurofora", at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/tunisiaconsuloneufaireconomyandconstitution.html).


    Indeed, Tunisia, in addition to the NOBEL Peace Prize that it was awarded last year (2015), is World-Famous as the Historic"Cradle of the Arab Spring", since back on 2011, when pro-Democracy Popular Movements found at Internet Freedom one of their most precious Allies, as well as Needs, notoriously Threatened by various Risks of Oppression, against which had Officialy Ambitioned to Speak also France, and several other Friendly Countries, already as early as since the May 2011 "G-8" Summit of Heads of State and Government in Deauville, (See relevant "Eurofora"s NewsReports from that landmark Deauville "G-8" Summit, f.ex. at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/sarkozystandbypeoplefightingforfreedom.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/egyptetunisiangos.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/deauvillefreedominternetmediterranean.html).


------------------------------------------------
Astonishing "Dillema" with overlaping MACRON's News-Breaking Move,
at the Same Time, Elsewhere in Strasbourg, near "Eurofora"'s Home...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Such issues appeared so Interesting and deserving at least an elementary European Solidarity, that "Eurofora" was practicaly Obliged even to Risk Missing a Unique Chance to participate at a very Topical "Press Point" with the Young French Minister of Economy, Industry and Digital Society, Emmanuel Macron, where we had been Invited, because it had been scheduled, Curiously, at the Same Day and even precise Hour (sic !), as the Annual "EuroFair"'s big Press Conference, but ...at the Other Side of Strasbourg City, far Away from the Palace of Congress    

Even if it was held, astonishingly, very Near to "Eurofora" co-Founder's Family Home, and was Macron's Last Public Meeting just a few Minutes before he Started to Spark Top Headline News all over Europe and the World, (even at Moscow or New York !), with his (partly Expected) Intention to Resign from the present Government in order to Start Focusing exclusively on the forthcoming, Crucial French Presidential Elections of Spring 2017, where he notoriously intends to be a Candidate, (Comp. 2 "Eurofora" earlier Publications, including with Statements that Macron gave us on various other Topical Issues, f.ex. at : .... + ...) ...

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    


    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.

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 ?
