PARIS [url=http://www.footballnflshop.us.com/Cheap-Philadelphia-Eagles-Nick-Foles-Jersey/]Nick Foles Jersey[/url] , July 4 (Xinhua) — The multiform government of France headed by the centrist Edouard Philippe won with a large majority the confidence vote at the lower house of the parliament on Tuesday, after presenting the country’s general policies over the coming five years.
After a long speech by the prime minister in front of lawmakers detailing the government political, economic and social plans, the National Assembly voted confidence in the new government by 370 ballots against 67 while 129 abstained.
In a lower house dominated by President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist Republic on the Move party (LREM), the massive approval of the government’s program is not a surprise.
LREM won 308 seats in the 577-member National Assembly earlier this month.
“The President of the Republic has shown us the course…This course is clear, it must be held,” Philippe told lawmakers.
In details, he mentioned policies to cut public spending, trim deficit, bolster security and improve education and health systems.
“The French are hooked on public spending. Like all addictions it doesn’t solve any of the problems it is meant to ease. And like all addictions, it requires willing and courage to detox,” Philippe said.
“The financial and fiscal situation is bad…The government’s choice is clear, we will not deal with deficits by raising taxes, but by lowering spending,” he added.
The government had set deficit target below the safe line of 3 percent imposed by the European Union in 2017 mainly by cutting public spending by 3 percentage points of the gross domestic product (GDP) by 2022.
Furthermore, it targets to cut the country’s tax burden by 1 percentage point of the GDP over the period.
Macron’s cabinet also said working to reduce corporate tax to 25 percent from the current 33.3 percent and transform by 2019 “CICE” company tax credit to a permanent cut in payroll charges in order to improve firms’ competitiveness and incite recruitment.
Speaking about security, the prime minister warned that more terrorist attacks are expected at home, adding the state of emergency which has been declared in 2015 will end on Nov. 1.
He added that defense will make up 2 percent of GDP by 2025.
Presenting the government’s five-year-roadmap, Philippe also shed lights on the cabinet’s social reform which he said aimed to set more fair and transparent model, in addition to a review of education and health systems.
He will present to the Senate, the upper parliament, a similar speech on the same subject on Wednesday.
SUVA, July 3 (Xinhua) — About 300 leaders and experts from Pacific Island countries gathered in Suva Monday to discuss enhancing cooperation in the fight against climate change.
The event, organized by Climate Action Pacific Partnership (CAPP), brought together relevant stakeholders to promote the exchange of ideas, innovations and solutions, Fiji Broadcasting Corporation said on its website.
It will seek to produce transformative outcomes and initiatives to boost fight against climate change in the Pacific, and urge more actions and enthusiasm on the fight elsewhere in the world.
The agenda features interactive sessions with contributions from Pacific leaders, civil society and the private sector.
Inia Seruiratu, Fiji’s climate champion minister, urged the participants to exchange ideas, innovations and solutions to initiate and accelerate transformative actions that result in credible and sustainable greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
The government of Fiji will be the president of the 23rd Climate Change Conference (COP23) to be held in Bonn, Germany.
Fiji’s Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has given high priority to COP23, aiming to continue the momentum for action since the entry into force of the Paris Climate Change Agreement in 2016.
The entire region is highly vulnerable to climate change impacts. The London School of Economics estimated that across the Pacific Islands, home to 10 million people, up to 1.7 million could be displaced due to climate change by 2050.
Fiji, like other Pacific Island states, faces challenges in fully implementing government policies due to limited technical, human resource and financial capacities.
Home to over 870,000 people in the central South Pacific Ocean, Fiji’s 300 volcanic islands include low-lying atolls that are highly susceptible to cyclones and floods.
The country is no stranger to the devastation wrought by climate change. Sea flooding is usually associated with the passage of tropical cyclones close to the coast. Heavy swells, generated by deep depressions andor intense high pressure systems some distance away from Fiji, have also caused flooding to low-lying coastal areas.
According to a World Bank report, climate threats to Fiji’s society and economy include higher rates of disease as average temperatures rise; increasingly destructive storms as oceans get warmer and weather patterns become more severe; disruptions to agriculture as the intrusion of saltwater damages existing farmland, among others.
On Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu, these factors are expected to contribute to economic damages of up to 25 million U.S. dollars per year, or roughly 4 percent of Fiji’s gross domestic product.
