PARIS (Reuters) - Former French president Valery Giscard d’Estaing, a key architect of European integration who sought to liberalise the economy and social attitudes after years of conservative Gaullist rule, died on Wednesday. Giscard sought to project the image of a young, modern president who was closer to the people than his predecessors, inviting himself to dinner at ordinary folks’ homes and playing the accordion. Months before the referendum in 2016, he told Reuters his message to Britain was: “We love you. Giscard had said that although Diana was the inspiration behind the book, the story itself was pure fiction. For over three decades, Giscard held on to the title of France’s youngest president, until Emmanuel Macron blew apart the country’s political arena aged 39, nine years younger than Giscard was when elected.

The rule linking access to EU money with respect for the rule of law does not require unanimity, so Poland and Hungary can be easily outvoted. The deadline for agreeing on the 2021 budget is Dec. 7. Governments would have to pay into the EU budget based on their gross national income. A European Commission official said this would allow the recovery fund to apply to 25 countries, leaving Poland and Hungary out. Fund money could start flowing around mid-2021, as originally planned.

REUTERS/Toby Melville/File PhotoLONDON (Reuters) - Britain and the European Union can still reach a post-Brexit trade deal if negotiators take a constructive approach, British finance minister Rishi Sunak said on Wednesday. “With a spirit of constructive attitude and goodwill on allsides, we can get there,” Sunak said in an interview with Times Radio. “Hopefully we can reach a positive conclusion.”Sunak also said he was “very confident” about Britain’s economic prospects even if no deal was reached before the end of this year, when a post-Brexit transition period ends and tariffs will come into force. The EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier told member states’ envoys earlier on Wednesday that negotiations were reaching “a make-or-break moment”, and they urged him not to be rushed into an unsatisfactory agreement.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The London Stock Exchange is set to win EU antitrust approval for its $27 billion takeover of data company Refinitiv, two people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday, bolstering its footprint in a rapidly consolidating sector. A merged LSE and Refinitiv would still be eclipsed by financial data leader Bloomberg LP but it will outrank a combination of S&P and IHS Markit, whose $44 billion deal announced this week was the largest acquisition of 2020. The sources declined to provide details of any changes to the concessions, though some said EU officials considered the Borsa Italiana sale to be a major divestment. The LSE and Refinitiv, which is 45%-owned by Reuters’ parent Thomson Reuters, also declined to comment. Deutsche Boerse, whose attempt to buy Borsa Italiana was thwarted by Euronext, said last month it would buy 80% of Institutional Shareholder Services for about $1.8 billion.

PARIS (Reuters) - Budget giant Ryanair is set to place a hefty order for up to 75 additional Boeing 737 MAX jets, throwing a commercial lifeline to the embattled U.S. planemaker after regulators lifted a 20-month safety ban, industry sources said. FILE PHOTO: Ryanair planes are seen at Dublin Airport, following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Dublin, Ireland, May 1, 2020. Alaska Airlines last month agreed to lease 13 Boeing MAX jets. Ryanair’s order may, however, be overshadowed by new European Union tariffs on Boeing jets, bringing a long-running trade row to a head in the midst of the U.S. electoral transition. Ryanair, meanwhile, has said it expects Boeing to absorb the cost of the 15% European tariffs on planes already ordered.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union and the United States should resolve their trade disputes after U.S. President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January in a “new transatlantic agenda”, the EU executive said on Wednesday, laying out its wish-list for better ties. European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borell speaks during a news conference in Brussels, Belgium, December 2, 2020. The United States and the EU “must work closely together on solving bilateral trade irritants”, the European Commission said in a proposal to EU governments, noting that EU-U.S. commerce accounts for a third of world trade. The two sides also have differing views on the value of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and its system of settling disputes, which Washington has paralysed by blocking the appointment of judges. Under Trump, the United States rejected proposals put forward by the EU and others to resolve a crisis at the WTO’s Appellate Body, effectively the supreme court of worldwide trade.

ATHENS (Reuters) - Two women were missing after a dinghy carrying dozens of people sank off the island of Lesbos on Wednesday, a Greek coastguard official said, as more migrants fleeing conflict and poverty attempt to enter Europe. Sea crossings on overcrowded boats are often hazardous and last month, the Greek coastguard found the body of a migrant near a half-sunken vessel on the Aegean island of Rhodes. And in September at least three people drowned when a boat carrying migrants sank off the island of Crete. Greek Migration Minister Notis Mitarachi said the EU-Turkey deal was being violated and human lives were being put at risk. Turkey’s coastguard said it had intercepted a vessel carrying migrants in the area on Tuesday and had taken 31 people into custody.

A third EU diplomat said that while intensive negotiations are continuing in London this week, it was still unclear whether negotiators could bridge the gaps on the three main sticking points. “As we are entering the endgame of the Brexit negotiations, some member states are becoming a bit jittery,” the diplomat said after the ambassadors’ meeting with Barnier. “So this was mostly an exercise to calm nerves in Paris and elsewhere and to reassure member states that team Barnier will continue to defend core EU interests including on fisheries.”

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union criticised Britain’s rapid approval of Pfizer and BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine on Wednesday, saying its own procedure was more thorough, after Britain became the first western country to endorse a COVID-19 shot. FILE PHOTO: A dose of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination of BioNTech and Pfizer is pictured in this undated handout photo, as Britain became the first western country to approve a COVID-19 vaccine, in Mainz, Germany. Pfizer UK Country Manager Ben Osborn said, “We have provided complete data packages, the unblinded data, to both regulators. Asked about the emergency procedure used by Britain, he said EU countries had opted for a more thorough procedure to boost confidence in vaccines. Under EU rules, the Pfizer vaccine must be authorised by the EMA, but EU countries can use an emergency procedure that allows them to distribute a vaccine at home for temporary use.

EU banking watchdog revives relief measures for COVID-hit loans
  + stars: | 2020-12-02 | by ( Huw Jones | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
The European Banking Authority (EBA) said that, due to the second wave of COVID-19 infections, guidance for banks that expired on Sept. 30 was being reactivated until March 31, 2021. As the first set of lockdowns from March closed businesses, banks began granting payment holidays on company loans, mortgages and other types of credit. Loans totalling 871 billion euros ($1.05 trillion) had benefited from the relief measures by June. Without guidance originally introduced by EBA in April, banks would have been required to start automatically provisioning for loans not being repaid 90 days after the due date, making them less likely to keep lending to the COVID-hit economy. Loans could only benefit from a repayment holiday for nine months in total and banks must spell out plans for assessing whether loans subject to payment holiday were likely to default, EBA said.

As the first set of lockdowns from March closed businesses, banks began granting payment holidays on company loans, mortgages and other credit. By June, loans totalling 871 billion euros ($1.05 trillion) had benefited from the relief measures.

The European Banking Federation, an industry body, said EBA’s announcement opened the door for EU countries to offer payment holidays again.

Both the U.S. and EU regulators are sifting through the same Pfizer vaccine trial data, but have yet to give their approval. Pfizer vaccine executive Ralf Rene Reinert said other countries were looking to emulate Britain. Slideshow ( 5 images )“With 450 people dying of COVID-19 infection every day in the UK, the benefits of rapid vaccine approval outweigh the potential risks,” said Andrew Hill, senior visiting research fellow in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Liverpool. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said it could give emergency approval for the shot by Dec. 29, while the World Health Organization said it was reviewing it for “possible listing for emergency use”. Britain has ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine - enough for just under a third of the population as two shots are needed per person to gain immunity.

It's been a tense four years of transatlantic ties, with President Donald Trump and the EU clashing over trade, defense, technology and foreign relations — to name a few points of contention. "We are taking the initiative to design a new transatlantic agenda fit for today's global landscape," European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a statement on Wednesday. In a document entitled "A new EU-U.S. agenda for global change," the European Commission, the executive arm of the EU, defined four major policy areas to focus on. The EU also said Wednesday that it wanted to "work together to lead WTO (World Trade Organization) reform efforts and solve bilateral trade irritants through negotiated solutions." So, the EU believes that going forward they need to "work to reinforce and reform the World Health Organization."
