|BRUSSELS， March 20 (Xinhua) -- The European Union (EU) is on the track to suspending meat imports involved in Brazil meat scandal， a spokesperson said Monday.
"The commission is in the process of ensuring that any of the establishment implicated in the fraud are suspended from the exporting to the EU，" said Enrico Brivio， spokesman of the European Commission.
Intensive contacts have taken place between the EU and Brazilian authorities since Friday， when the Brazilian police uncovered a massive scheme of meat adulteration， which involved some of the country's largest meat producers.
The EU and member states stayed vigilant on meat imports from Brazil and accordingly have enhanced the control， the spokesman told a press briefing， adding that Brussels has asked for further clarification from Rio de Janeiro but got no specific information at this stage.
According to media reports， the size of affected meat imports seemed to be small and the two sides were working to figure out the detailed amount and specific kinds of product to the EU markets， said Brivio.
The commission noted that the scandal had no direct link to the EU's free trade talks with South American bloc Mercosur and any future deal would be supposed to meet the EU's high regulatory requirements and food safety standards.
SYDNEY http://www.cheapnflvikingsjerseys.com/kyle-rudolph-jersey/ , Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- A former Australian treasury secretary told a summit of business and community leaders in Sydney on Wednesday that unless Australia acted quickly, the country would face the equivalent of a recession within the next decade.
"Unless we actually grab this challenge (of economic growth) by the horns and really get concrete about what are the priority issues, we are actually going to find ourselves sleepwalking into a real mess," former Australian treasury secretary Martin Parkinson said.
Some 100 business and community leaders in Australia have come together at the National Reform Summit in Sydney on Wednesday to discuss what organisers believe the Australian government is too afraid to touch.
Parkinson said that if Australia's economic growth remained nearer to 2.5 percent than 3 percent, as much as 5 percentage points of gross domestic product (GDP) would be lost over the next decade.
"If this is not happening because our population growth is slow http://www.cheapnflvikingsjerseys.com/tom-johnson-jersey/ , it means willingly accepting the impact of a recession," Parkinson said.
The loss of GDP from a recession is 5 or 6 percentage points, Parkinson said.
The Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Glenn Stevens told the summit on Wednesday that the political debate currently raging in Australia on taxes should focus on lifting economic growth, rather than the distribution of the proceeds.
Despite record low interest rates and business and consumer confidence staying on average, economic growth has not been able to get to three percent http://www.cheapnflvikingsjerseys.com/xavier-rhodes-jersey/ , Stevens said.
"The kind of growth we want won't be delivered just by central bank adjustments to interest rates or short-term fiscal initiatives that bring forward demand from next year, only to have to give it back then," Stevens said.
"A key question worth asking is: how do we generate more growth? Not temporary, flash-in-the-pan growth, but sustainable growth."
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott http://www.cheapnflvikingsjerseys.com/joe-berger-jersey/ , speaking via video-link while on a week-long visit to the Torres Strait, threw his support behind the event, admitting not all wisdom sits with Australia's politicians.
"I'm here to listen because not all wisdom resides in Canberra, and listening to those with practical experience does make for better public policy," Abbott said.
Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey urged the summit to deliver ideas the Australian community was willing to embrace.
