L’Afrique donne le coup d’envoi à un marché commun « du Cap au Caire »

Wikipedia

Cecil Rhodes en rêvait : construire un continuum économique et politique en Afrique « du Cap au Caire ». Un siècle et quelques années plus tard, à Charm el-Cheikh, vingt-six dirigeants de pays d’Afrique ont, mercredi 10 juin, posé les bases d’un vaste marché unique courant de l’Afrique du Sud au Caire. Ce n’est plus, là, le mythe impérial d’un colonialiste anglais qui voulait relier, à la fin du dix-neuvième siècle, toutes les colonies de son pays, mais un projet porté par les Africains eux-mêmes, auxquels il reste nombre d’obstacles à surmonter avant d’accomplir ce rêve. Sur le papier, ce projet, né après cinq ans de négociations,…

States enlist prisoners, plan biosecurity to combat avian flu threat

(Reuters)…Indiana is training 300 prisoners to kill infected chickens and banning bird shows at county fairs. Mississippi is considering road barricades and planning biosecurity measures. Iowa is trying to figure out how to deal with a mountain of dead – and reeking – chickens.

Russian, Iranian companies discuss barter deal terms: minister

Russia's Energy Minister Novak arrives at the European Commission headquarters in Brussels ahead of a meeting with EU officials

(Reuters) – Russian and Iranian companies are discussing terms for a barter deal which will not include oil deliveries, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Wednesday, trying to end confusion over the status of a long-heralded agreement. Russian officials said on Monday Russia was sending grain, equipment and construction materials to Iran in an oil-for-goods exchange, the first step in securing a foothold in a new market since the West imposed sanctions on Russia over Ukraine. But the announcement caused confusion in the oil and grain markets, with traders saying no oil deliveries and no grain supplies had been registered. Some suggested it was little…

Le Congrès américain va approuver Keystone XL

PHOTO ANDREW HARRER, ARCHIVES BLOOMBERG

IVAN COURONNE Agence France-Presse WASHINGTON Le Congrès américain à majorité républicaine devait autoriser mercredi le controversé oléoduc entre le Canada et les États-Unis, défiant ainsi le président Barack Obama qui a promis d’opposer son veto à la loi. Ce qui n’était qu’un projet pétrolier de plus, lors de la première demande de permis de construire en 2008, s’est transformé au fil des années en une pomme de discorde entre démocrates et républicains, chacun voyant dans l’oléoduc de 1900 km, dont 1400 aux États-Unis, une menace majeure ou une opportunité historique. Avec les écologistes, les alliés démocrates du président dénoncent un projet…

Obama’s pivot on oil draws fire from left

Getty

President Obama unveiled plans Tuesday to open swaths of the Atlantic and Arctic oceans to new oil and gas exploration, enraging Democrats and environmentalists who had cheered him just two days earlier for blocking drilling elsewhere. The Interior Department’s five-year lease plan would allow drilling in three areas off the coast of Alaska and one in a portion of the Atlantic for the first time in nearly four decades. The shift in policy, gas prices being at new lows, is dramatic for Obama, who’s been seeking to burnish his legacy as a president who has worked to stop climate change….
