Quotes

"we intensify our efforts to promote Renewable Energy Sources"
"The current situation in Palestine and Israel is not viable. Stability in Gaza requires that Israel gives the Palestinians access to areas that are under direct Israeli control in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. If this does not happen, the conflict may erupt again" said Mr Brende
It is also said that: "The anti-dumping review investigation showed that the industry is still in a fragile situation. Given the substantial volume of dumped imports from the People's Republic of China and likelihood of continuation of dumping and injury, there is a strong likelihood that Union production would disappear should measures be repealed."
On the issue of streamlining access to the Faster Payments Service, Chris Dunne, payments services director, VocaLink, says: "This is a critical area of focus for us and we are working hard to provide the market with a service that allows technical connection to FPS and other payment infrastructures at a fraction of the current cost. However the technical aspects are only part of the challenge - the access criteria, rules, and settlement arrangements are all essential aspects that need to be improved."
