La maire de Paris Anne Hidalgo a été élue présidente du C40, qui réunit 85 grandes villes mondiales mobilisés pour le défi climatique.

La maire de Paris Anne Hidalgo (PS) se construit une stature internationale. Elle vient d'être élue présidente du C40, le Cities Climate Leadership
Group, qui regroupe 85 grandes villes mondiales - peuplées au total de plus de 600 millions de personnes - mobilisées pour le défi climatique. La maire
de Paris avait présenté sa candidature début avril, et il y avait peu de doutes quant à son élection à la tête de l'institution. Les maires « de New York,
Londres, Tokyo, Sydney, Johannesburg, Mexico, Pékin, Washington, Madrid, Séoul, Buenos Aires, Stockholm, Quito, Vancouver ou encore
Copenhague » soutenaient en effet la candidature d'Anne Hidalgo depuis le début.

Inclusion sociale

Se disant honorée d'être élue, la maire de Paris a détaillé ses objectifs à la tête de l'institution : « qu'il s'agisse du défi climatique, de l'inclusion sociale
ou de l'accueil des réfugiés, nos villes sont en première ligne et plus que jamais, nous avons besoin d'unir nos forces », a-t-elle indiqué. Comme
mesures concrètes, elle a d'ores et déjà annoncé qu'elle initierait « un appel à projets d'urbanisme innovants » à l'échelle des villes du C40, sur le
modèle de Réinventer Paris. Elle compte ensuite « travailler avec les meilleures startups des villes du C40 pour généraliser les solutions les plus
pertinentes en matière de qualité de vie en ville », et enfin favoriser de « nouveaux investissements pour financer l'action des villes durables et
résilientes ».

Première femme présidente du C40
Elle estime en effet que « les grandes capitales du monde ont un rôle central dans la conception et la mise en œuvre de solutions innovantes en faveur
d'un développement plus harmonieux ». Anne Hidalgo est par ailleurs la première femme à devenir présidente du C40, après Ken Livingstone, maire de
Londres (2005-2008), David Miller, maire de Toronto (2008-2010), Michael Bloomberg, maire de New York (2010-2013) et Eduardo Paes, maire de Rio
de Janeiro (2013-2016). De quoi cumuler de sérieux arguments dans l'optique d'un plus grand destin national lors de la prochaine décennie ?



TRANSLATED BY BING:

The Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo was elected Chair of the C40,
which brings together 85 cities worldwide mobilized for the climate challenge.

The Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo (PS) builds an international stature. She has just been elected President of C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group,
which brings together 85 major world cities - populated total more than 600 million people - mobilized to the climate challenge. The Mayor of Paris had
submitted his candidacy early April, and there's little doubt about his election to the head of the institution. The mayors «of New York, London, Tokyo,
Sydney, Johannesburg, Mexico City, Beijing, Washington, Madrid, Seoul, Buenos Aires, Stockholm, Quito, Vancouver or even Copenhagen» indeed
supported Anne Hidalgo candidacy from the beginning.


Social inclusion


Claiming to be honoured to be elected, the Mayor of Paris has detailed its objectives at the head of the institution: "that whether the climate challenge,
social inclusion or the reception of refugees, our cities are in the front line and more than ever, we need to unite our forces", she said. As concrete
measures, it already announced that it would initiate "a call for innovative town planning projects" at the level of the C40 cities, on the model of
reinventing Paris. It then intends to "work with the best startups of the C40 cities to generalize the most relevant solutions in quality of life in the city",
and finally to promote "new investments to finance the action of sustainable and resilient cities".


First woman Chair of the C40

It considers indeed that "the great capitals of the world have a central role in the design and implementation of innovative solutions for a more
harmonious development". Anne Hidalgo is also the first woman to become President of the C40, after Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London (2005-2008),
Mayor of Toronto David Miller (2008-2010), Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York (2010-2013) and Eduardo Paes, Mayor of Rio de Janeiro (2013-
2016). What earn serious arguments in the context of a larger national destiny during the next decade?
China’s largest hotel company is coming hard after France’s largest.

Paris-based AccorHotels is reportedly searching out for an investor to stave off a takeover by Shanghai-based Jin Jiang International Hotels, which
currently has an almost 16-percent stake in AccorHotels, a percentage it is looking to boost.

The French government could come to its rescue. Reports have surfaced that a number of French ministers are backing a plan for the government
to take a stake in the company, as it tries to rebuff the foreign takeover.

AccorHotels also is believed to have approached China’s HNA Group, which earlier this year acquired Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and is currently
embroiled in a shareholder proxy fight over NH Hotel Group, as it faces joining the current M&A trend and potentially becoming part of a company to
rival the combined Marriott International and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.

AccorHotels has a joint venture with China Lodging, but is thought to have turned to HNA Group given its recent interest in the sector.

Legally Speaking

AccorHotels strategy to enlist another investor is due in part because of its lack of legal recourse. In 2014, the French government extended a 2005
decree to state that foreign buyers must get the support of the economy ministry when they planned to invest in French firms engaged in energy,
transport, water, health or telecoms. Although AccorHotels could possibly sell a case for its role in transport, it is unlikely and difficult.

While AccorHotels is not itself a protected company, it is thought that the French authorities are eager to apply pressure to ensure that Jin Jiang
limits its shareholding and voting rights for an agreed number of years, in return for a place on the board. While this keeps Jin Jiang at bay, it still
gives it access to company strategy—strategy it may not wish rival Louvre Hotels Group, which Jin Jiang also owns, to be privy to.

Jin Jiang now has 15.6 percent of AccorHotels shares and, according to reports in the local press, is courting Colony Capital and Eurazeo to buy their
combined 11.8-percent stake at EUR45 per share (at the time of writing, the shares were at EUR40.25, having risen over 3 percent on the rumors). It
is understood that the pair will not sell out to Jin Jiang without the board approval from AccorHotels.

Jin Jiang began 2016 with a stake of 5.5 percent and rumors suggest that the company is now looking to up its stake to as much as 29 percent, which
would trigger a public offer. There has, as yet, been no comment from Jin Jiang, which was expected to clarify its expectations after raising its stake in
April.

While HNA is reportedly being courted, speculation suggests that AccorHotels CEO Sebastien Bazin is hedging his bets and has approached a group
of Qatari investors.

Changes to outward-direct-investment rules in China have seen a rapid increase in the involvement of Chinese firms in the latest spate of M&A in the
sector. This saw Marriott International’s merger with Starwood Hotels & Resorts almost derailed by insurance group Anbang, but could yet see the
face of the sector changed permanently.

July 4/5 2013 Fire Videos by:   William Reynolds
A specially equipped "firefighter drone chopper", similar to a  MQ-8C Fire Scout  (or their likes), could have stopped the fire in the first few hours after the thunderstorm had passed.
"Where is a Howard Hughes, when we needed one?"
Also, a Howard Hughes would have a 100 of those stationed in every western state, taking off as soon as a thunderstorm had passed to attack the fires - and not wait until it gets out of control!"
At the Western Governors Conference on 12 / 12 / 2013 the concept of a "Firefighter Drone Chopper" fleet was proposed.  
My suggestion below  dates from July 2013, at the height of the fire!

OF THE YEAR
EDF    


Peter Johann,

Generations from now, Americans will look back at President Trump’s executive order to rescind the Clean Power Plan—America’s first ever national
limit on dangerous carbon pollution from power plants.

They will either mourn this as the moment when America turned its back on climate progress and the clean energy future…

Or they will celebrate the great grassroots effort that stood up to the president’s disastrous decision.

The choice is ours. How we respond in the days, weeks, and months ahead will determine the future
our kids and grand kids will inherit.

EDF has always sought solutions and worked collaboratively with all parties to drive real progress. But this is a time
when we must stand up and be counted.

You’ve been active with EDF to oppose President Trump’s anti-environment agenda. I urge you now more than ever to make a donation of whatever
amount you can afford to give EDF the resources we urgently need to stop this assault on common sense and basic climate science.

Let’s be clear about what has happened this week: President Trump has commanded the EPA to rescind the Clean Power Plan without offering any
replacement to protect our communities from the growing threat of climate change or to move America toward a clean energy economy.

This is unacceptable. With your support, here are some of the actions we are taking:
1. We are mobilizing our members and activists to join the People’s Climate March on Saturday, April 29th. This is our opportunity to march shoulder to
shoulder with hundreds of groups and hundreds of thousands of concerned Americans to deliver our message: We need Less Pollution. More
Solutions.

2. President Trump’s executive order starts a legal and regulatory process, which the EPA must follow. That process includes many opportunities for
concerned Americans to offer public comments and with your support we will inundate the EPA with support of the current rules. We helped deliver
more than 8 million comments in support of the Clean Power Plan and we will not be silent as they try to rescind this important rule.

3. We will work in the states to transition to a clean energy economy and toward meeting the goals of the Clean Power Plan, regardless of its fate.

4. We will launch a massive online engagement and grassroots organizing program to press governors, state legislators, senators, representatives,
public utility commissioners, and other key decision makers to support the goals of slashing climate pollution and unleashing clean energy innovation.

5. Our legal team is preparing to file and/or join lawsuits opposing the Trump administration’s actions. Any effort to roll back the Clean Power Plan will
be subject to rigorous judicial review in federal court. The Supreme Court has affirmed EPA’s authority and responsibility to curb climate pollution under
the Clean Air Act three times since 2007. If the Trump Administration rescinds the Clean Power Plan without any replacement, it will be on very shaky
legal footing.

I wish I were writing to you with a different message. I prefer to enlist your support for bold and innovative initiatives to reduce pollution, improve public
health, and unleash clean energy. And I will be coming back to you on another day with just such a message.

But today is a day for those of us who respect science and cherish life to stand together to defend climate and clean energy progress.

The stakes are high. Future generations will look back to the moment and pass judgment on what we do. Let’s make them proud.

Thank you for your citizenship and support,

Fred Krupp
President

The Austrian government wanted to raze this house. Faced with the outcry, she decided to organize an architectural competition.
Austria will launch an architectural competition on the future of the birthplace of Hitler. The key is that the building, located in the center of Braunau-am-
Inn, on the German border, not "can be found in its external shape," said Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka to the press Vienna. The government wants
to prevent the house, empty for several years, became a place of neo-Nazi pilgrimage.
Following the advice in the sense of a part of the political class, including the Green opposition parties FPÖ and (far right), Wolfgang Sobotka
announced Monday in the press that the house would be "destroyed" and replaced by a new building.


The announcement of the demolition has sparked an outcry from members of an expert commission set up this summer, according to which the
destruction of this building from the 17th century was not necessary for him to lose his sour character .
"Breaking the symbolism attached to this place"
"The option of demolition was explicitly proposed by the government and we have not approved", said Clemens Jabloner, a senior judge and Oliver
Rathkolb, a historian, in a joint statement. In its report, the Committee of Experts had argued that use of the building according to values ​​"contrary to the
crimes committed by Hitler" would be enough to "break the symbolism attached to this place," without it being conducted demolition.
Wolfgang Sobotka has said on Tuesday that the place would be in the future to house an administration or a social institution, without necessarily being
totally demolished.
Leased by the state since 1972 to control their use, the imposing yellow building where the dictator was born in 1889 has long housed a center for
disabled - a category of the population who had been the victim of the Nazi regime. Due to a dispute with the family that owns the building is unoccupied,
however, since 2011, attracting nostalgic for the Third Reich.
The Austrian state, which pays 4,800 euros per month in rent, initiated an expropriation procedure, which must still be approved by parliament. The
expropriation bill was presented Tuesday in committee.
NEIN ZU TTIP

Als Bundespräsident werde ich den TTIP-Vertrag nicht unterschreiben. Ich gehe davon aus, dass es gar nicht so weit kommt, und TTIP im Parlament
nicht beschlossen wird.

Durch TTIP droht eine Absenkung von Standards in den Bereichen Lebensmittel, Umwelt und Gesundheit sowie eine Zerstörung der kleinräumigen
österreichischen Landwirtschaft. Das ist nicht zu akzeptieren.

Ich will nicht, dass durch TTIP gentechnisch veränderte Lebensmittel durch die Hintertür zu uns kommen, die österreichische Landwirtschaft mit ihrem
hohen Bio-Anteil unter Druck gerät oder Standards im Gesundheitsbereich oder bei den Arbeitsschutzrechten gesenkt werden. Unsere Bio- und
Bergbauern, die kleinstrukturierte Landwirtschaft dürfen nicht dem Druck der Gentechnik-Allmacht von Monsanto ausgesetzt werden.

Die von Verfassungsexperten gegen die Schiedsgerichte und die regulatorische Kooperation vorgebrachten Argumente teile ich. Ich bin der
Überzeugung, dass es keinen Bedarf dafür gibt und die österreichischen und europäischen Rechtsnormen ausreichend sind.

GOOGLE TRANSLATE:

NO TO TTIP

As President, I will not sign the TTIP Treaty. I assume that it does not come so far, and TTIP is not passed by Parliament.

By TTIP threatening lowering of standards in the areas of food, environment and health as well as the destruction of small-scale agriculture in Austria.
This is not acceptable.

I do not want that by TTIP GMO foods come through the back door to us; the Austrian agriculture unit with its high organic portion under pressure or
standards in the health sector or in labor rights are reduced. Our biotechnology and mountain farmers, the small farms should not be subjected to the
pressure of the genetic engineering omnipotence of Monsanto.

The concerns raised by constitutional experts against the arbitration and regulatory cooperation arguments I share. I am convinced that there is no
need for it and the Austrian and European legal standards are sufficient.

Following a press conference with Manuel Valls, Canadian Prime Minister considered that Europe would engage in a way "unproductive" by refusing to
sign the free trade agreement with Canada.
Justin Trudeau comes out the yellow card. A rejection by the 28 countries of the European Union free trade agreement with Canada (Ceta) would be
"distressing" and send to the world "a clear message" that the EU is engaged in "a very productive way" , said Thursday the Canadian Prime Minister.
The time has come "for Europe to decide what is the European Union", he ruled during a joint press conference with his French counterpart Manuel
Valls.


European opposition
Canadian and European leaders have an appointment in Brussels on 27 October to ratify the transatlantic treaty, but voices continue to rise in the old
continent to prevent its adoption, while the agreement of all national parliaments is required for its full implementation.
In particular, the Parliament of the French Community of Belgium adopted on Wednesday a resolution that could force the country to refuse Ceta.
"If in a week or two, Europe is unable to sign a commercial agreement with a progressive country like Canada, with which Europe thinks she doing
business in the coming years?" He told Justin Trudeau .
"For me, this is a time when questions arise about the usefulness of Europe if Europe fails to sign this agreement, it will be a very clear message, not
only for Europeans but also the world that Europe is about to choose a very productive way for its citizens and for the world, "blasted the Liberal leader.

Peter,

With so much to follow in Washington right now – and so much happening all across the country ­– I want to make sure the investigations into Russian
interference in the 2016 election don’t get lost in the shuffle. Special counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury, signaling that the
investigations are reaching a critical moment, and new information continues to surface.

We’ve seen findings that Russians purchased political ads on Facebook, Google and other online platforms to spread disinformation and stoke fear.
And internal reviews of that spending indicate the Russians used sophisticated targeting to sow discord. In addition to the propaganda, we also know of
at least 21 states where Russians tried to hack into election systems, a story which hasn’t gotten the thorough attention it deserves.

I’ve talked about the Russia investigations with folks in Maine and all across the country – including some who wonder what the point of all this is.
People understandably want to put the 2016 elections behind them and leave this in the past – but, unfortunately, Russian meddling isn’t a thing of the
past. It’s a real concern for the future of our electoral system. As former FBI Director James Comey said during his testimony in front of the Senate
Intelligence Committee: “They’ll be back.” Putin doesn’t “side” with anyone but himself – he’s not a Republican or a Democrat, and this was not a one-
off. Russia has tried to undermine democratic regimes in France, the Netherlands and Germany with its disinformation campaigns, and it’ll be back to
attempt to undermine ours in 2018 and 2020. I don’t have any doubt about that.

Our country’s voters have critical decisions to make in the months and years ahead, and we need to make sure all Americans get the chance to make
their own choices free of foreign interference. I consider this some of the most important work of my career. As a member of the Senate Intelligence
Committee, I’m focused on learning exactly what the Russians did and how they did it. We must uncover the facts, hold people accountable and prevent
this from happening again.

I appreciate you taking the time to read my thoughts, and I’ll keep you in the loop as this continues to develop.

Thank you for your support.

Trumpiversary: Here Are the Winners & Losers

9:33 am ET November 9, 2017 (Zacks) Print

Before President Trump’s election, many pundits found it difficult to assess the outcome of his victory as his proposals seemed contradictory or lacked
details. On the contrary, such pro-economic policies helped technology and financial stocks rise sharply, helping Wall Street’s major equity indicators
showing the best rally in the past 81 years.

Defense stocks have, in fact, left the rest in the dust. The sector gained the most following tensions between Trump and North Korea. Trump’s
Afghanistan strategy has also lent such stocks a fillip. However, not everyone has partaken in this year-long rally. Let us thus take a look at the potential
gainers and losers of the ‘Trump trade’.

Trump Rally Fed Off Wall Street Anxiety

It’s been a year since Trump’s stunning performance on election night that had rattled the global equity market. The Dow futures tumbled nearly 900
points as investors remained concerned about Trump’s questionable campaign promises on trade and immigration.
But, investors’ apprehensions ebbed by morning and U.S. stocks started moving north. In fact, the Dow’s 1-year gain since Trump’s win turned out to be
the highest post-Election Day rise since 1945. The blue-chip gauge surged 28.5% since Nov 8, 2016.

The S&P 500 also rallied 21% since the close of trading on Election Day 2016. This is the benchmark index’s third best performance during a President’s
first election since World War II, lagging that of Presidents John F Kennedy (1960, 29%) and George H. W. Bush (1988, 23%), as per Sam Stovall of
CFRA Research.

Though Trump had taken over a progressing economy with the stock market near an all-time high, his pro-growth and business-friendly policies as well as
bets on deregulation gave investors ample scope.

Technology and Financials Benefit From Trump Policy

Promises of pro-business legislation by Trump have primarily supported the gains for the software industry and the manufacturers of the internal
technologies — the semiconductor makers. The House’s latest corporate tax plan will lower taxes from 35% to 20%. As a result, tech companies’ after-tax
earnings will improve and lead to repatriation of trillions of dollars held abroad by such companies. Tech companies can use this extra cash for research
and developments, and mergers and acquisitions.

If the bill turns into a law, tech bigwigs including Apple Inc. AAPL and Microsoft Corporation MSFT as well as semiconductor giant NVIDIA Corporation
NVDA  will largely benefit as they have billions of dollars stashed outside the United States. In fact, NVIDIA – Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) stock – became the
biggest gainer since the election, up a staggering 209%. Looking at the big picture, the technology sector is up around 39%.

You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Financials, in the meantime, has benefitted from the possibility of deregulating the sector. At the same time, Trump appointed Jerome Powell as the next
Federal Reserve chairman, someone who favors his regulatory changes.

Trump views the Dodd-Frank regulatory overhaul as a harsh measure, especially, on smaller banks. Trump has called for repealing parts of the Dodd-
Frank Act, which has for a considerable period of time limited operational flexibility. Trump’s administration also aims at increasing the minimum asset
threshold for banking behemoths, which will lend more flexibility, boost valuations, strengthen consolidation and increase lending. The value of stock and
options held by Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co., turned out to be the highest since Trump’s win, while the broader financial sector
soared almost 35% in the said period.

Defense Stocks – By Far the Best Trade

Aerospace and the defense sector has been the best trade since Trump’s election. While deal making activity boosted the sector, Trump’s unrelenting
war of words against Pyongyang provided enough impetus to the sector to climb further north.
Let us also not forget that Trump revealed a reversal of strategy in Afghanistan, promising to “fight to win” instead of withdrawing entirely. He vowed to
ramp up U.S. engagement in Afghanistan, the country’s longest war to date. He added that moving troops away from Afghanistan would create a
“vacuum,” which terrorists would “instantly fill.”

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. KTOS, AeroVironment, Inc. AVAV and Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings, Inc. AJRD have been the best-performing
components in the defense sector, with their stock value doubling since Trump’s victory.

Aerospace company Boeing Co gained the maximum at 87% since the election. Trump’s pledge to significantly increase federal spending related to
national security was cheered by Republicans and helped defense and aerospace stocks scale higher. He had promised to seek a $54-billion hike in
spending on tanks, ships and weapon systems. The defense budget will climb 10%, according to the White House, while Trump recommended $30 billion
in supplementary military spending for this year.

Which Sectors Are Not So Lucky?

Not everyone, though, has participated in the year-long rally. The three worst performing sectors since Trump’s election have been consumer staples,
energy and telecommunication services. While staples and energy managed to eke out marginal gains, telecommunications tanked nearly 10%.
While volatility in oil prices during Trump’s regime made investors cautious from investing in the energy sector, staples and telecommunications were
affected due to higher interest rates. The Federal Reserve has lifted rates twice this year and is expected to raise it again next month.

Retailers too have been affected during Trump’s regime, as they continue to adapt to changing consumer tastes and preferences as well as evolving
shopping methods. Notably, Macy's Inc M was among the biggest losers since the election, down 52.3%. Currently, the omnichannel retail company has a
Zacks Rank #4 (Sell).

Today's Stocks from Zacks' Hottest Strategies

It's hard to believe, even for us at Zacks. But while the market gained +18.8% from 2016 - Q1 2017, our top stock-picking screens have returned +157.
0%, +128.0%, +97.8%, +94.7%, and +90.2% respectively.

And this outperformance has not just been a recent phenomenon. Over the years it has been remarkably consistent. From 2000 - Q1 2017, the
composite yearly average gain for these strategies has beaten the market more than 11X over. Maybe even more remarkable is the fact that we're willing
to share their latest stocks with you without cost or obligation.

U.K. and EU make breakthrough on Brexit divorce terms, clearing way to next stage of negotiations
European stocks rose Friday, scoring their highest close in a month, after the U.K. and the European Union came to terms on a Brexit divorce deal,
opening the way to a key phase of talks.

Bank stocks were in rally mode after news of the Brexit breakthrough and after global financial officials finally signed a deal Thursday to harmonize
banking rules.

How markets are moving: The Stoxx Europe 600 popped up 0.7% to close at 389.25, logging its highest close since Nov. 9, according to FactSet data.
For the week, the Stoxx 600 scored a 1.4% gain, following last week's fall of 0.7%.
(http://www.marketwatch.com/story/european-stocks-on-course-for-2nd-losing-session-with-tech-knocked-down-2017-12-06)In Frankfurt on Friday, the
DAX 30 index jumped 0.8% to 13,153.70, and in Paris, the CAC 40 gained 0.3% to 5,399.09. Spain's IBEX 35 leapt 0.6% to 10,321.10.

The U.K.'s FTSE 100 ended up 1% at 7,393.96, propelled higher by a drop in the pound.
The euro traded at $1.1765 at the time of the European close, down from $1.1774 late Thursday in New York.

What's moving markets: The president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, said early Friday that "sufficient progress" has been made
(http://www.marketwatch.com/story/breakthrough-on-brexit-terms-opens-way-to-next-phase-of-talks-2017-12-08) on three key issues in Brexit negotiations
to allow the talks to advance to the next phase.

"I believe we have now made the breakthrough we needed," Juncker said at a press conference in Brussels.
After a night of intense negotiating, British Prime Minister Theresa May managed to resolve the final issue -- the Irish border -- needed to satisfy the EU
side.

The Brussels negotiating team is now recommending that EU leaders give the go-ahead for Brexit talks to move to the second stage, which will cover trade
agreements and a potential transition period. The European Council meeting of EU leaders is scheduled for Dec. 14-15.
An EU official reportedly threw cold water on hopes of a quick deal on trade, saying it's not realistic to expect an agreement by March 2019, when the U.K.
leaves the union.

The pound hit an intraday high of $1.3521 following news of the deal, but since slumped to $1.3366. That compares with $1.3475 late Thursday in New
York. Against the euro, sterling fell to EUR1.1363 from EUR1.1445 on Thursday.

Analysts said the drop came not because traders were disappointed with the deal, but because a lot of the optimism had already been price in.

Stock movers: The Stoxx Europe 600 Bank Index surged 2.2%, marking its biggest leap since July.

On Thursday, international banking regulators agreed on the final Basel III standards for banks. The harmonized rules, conceived after the financial crisis,
aim to shield taxpayers from bank bailouts by making sure lenders have adequate cushion against shocks. The standards must now be passed into
national laws. The agreement further highlighted that most lenders hold a sufficient amount of capital.

Friday's Brexit breakthrough also helps the financial industry, as it brightens the prospects for a smooth transition when the U.K. withdraws from the EU in
2019.

In the bank group, Germany's Deutsche Bank AG (DBK.XE) (DBK.XE) jumped 3.3%, while shares of London-based Barclays PLC (BCS)(BCS) rose 2.5%.
France's Société Générale SA (GLE.FR) added 2.3%, Spain's Banco Santander SA (SAN) picked up 1.8%, and Italy's Unione di Banche Italiane SpA
(UBI.MI) moved up 2.2%.

What strategists are saying: "GBP/USD tumbled throughout the afternoon after the early morning buying frenzy fizzled. Sterling got off to a strong start in
the early hour due to the news that the U.K. and EU will move onto next round of talks in relation to Brexit. Traders a feeling in was going to be good news
that was reported this morning so some of the move was already priced in," said David Madden, market analyst at CMC Markets UK, in a note.

"The DAX has been given a boost after Martin Schulz of the Social Democrats suggested his party is warming up to the idea of entering into coalition talks
with Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union. The German economy has been performing well without a functioning government, and [the] news has
added to the positive sentiment," he added.

Jeune, ambitieux et europhile: qui est Sebastian Kurz, le nouveau chancelier autrichien?

Par Sabine Syfuss-Arnaud le 19.01.2018 à 17h06

EXCLUSIF. Chancelier d’Autriche depuis le 18 décembre, Sebastian Kurz suscite curiosité et inquiétude en Europe . Curiosité parce qu'il est le plus jeune
dirigeant du monde. Inquiétude, parce ce conservateur vient de former un gouvernement avec la droite dure. Challenges a rencontré à Vienne celui qui
se dit europhile, ambitieux, travailleur et soucieux des détails.

D'une politesse exquise, il présente ses excuses pour les cinq minutes de retard. Il a les joues poupines, un sourire enjôleur, les yeux d'un bleu soutenu,
mais le regard vif et scrutateur de quelqu'un qui ne s'en laisse pas conter. Comme souvent, il ne porte pas de cravate.

Hauteur de plafond vertigineuse, boiseries au mur, miroirs et dorures années 1930, son bureau, chargé d'histoire, en impose. Mais, de lui, peu de traces.
Tout est net, impeccable, rangé. Seule touche personnelle : une œuvre d'art, la carte d'Europe la tête en bas, avec en surimpression un plan du quartier
des musées à Vienne. L'Europe à l'envers, pourquoi donc ? Il commente simplement: " Ce tableau, je l'ai dans mon bureau depuis que je suis ministre des
affaires étrangères. Je l'aime beaucoup. Il est l'œuvre d'un jeune artiste contemporain allemand."

Il a du charme et il le sait

L'Europe c'est son dada, l'ADN de sa politique. Il le clame, à chaque fois qu'il en a l'occasion. D'ailleurs si les affaires étrangères sont tombées dans le
giron d'une ministre proche du FPÖ, lui a gardé la haute main sur les affaires européennes. Son premier déplacement à l'étranger, il l'a effectué à
Bruxelles et sa première rencontre bilatérale de chancelier, il l'a eu à Paris, avec Emmanuel Macron, quatre jours auparavant, le 12 janvier. Au-delà des
déclarations de bonnes intentions, on lui repose la question du risque d'un possible rapprochement avec le bloc des régimes autoritaires en Europe de
l'Est. Il rétorque vivement: "on m'a souvent posé la question. Les commentateurs ont souvent donné la réponse à ma place. Je le dis très clairement:

l'Autriche ne rejoindra pas le groupe de Visegrad." Et d'ajouter avec des accents de sincérité : "Mon gouvernement est pro-européen et je suis
viscéralement pro-européen. Je veux contribuer à bâtir des passerelles en Europe." Interrogé sur une dimension plus sensible de cette Europe dont il se
réclame, il avance: " pour moi, c'est aussi un art de vivre ensemble, d'être bien ensemble, de partager une histoire et des valeurs communes." Il
revendique des goûts éclectiques, affirme aimer les groupes de rock Muse et U2, comme le Faust de Goethe.

Sebastian Kurz a du charme. Il le sait. Il en joue, se montre disponible, écoute avec attention, répond précisément, ne montre aucune impatience, alors
que son emploi du temps est serré. Le matin, il a eu un conseil des ministres, depuis il enchaîne les rendez-vous. Le lendemain, il s'envole pour deux jours
à Berlin, où il doit être reçu par tout le gratin de la politique, Angela Merkel en tête, des médias et de la télévision. Il a même un dîner prévu avec des
célébrités des bords de la Spree.

Coquetterie

On lui demande comment il imaginait-il son avenir quand il avait quinze ans ? Il s’offre une coquetterie : « Je pensais que je ferais un vrai métier et que je
m'engagerai en politique comme bénévole. Et puis, la politique m'a pris de plus en plus de temps..." Très vite, en effet, il a pris la tête des jeunes de son
parti, a décroché  des mandats locaux, avant d’être appelé à de plus hautes fonctions. Il se souvient : "quand on m'a proposé d'être secrétaire d'Etat,
j'avais 24 ans. J'ai pris le temps de réfléchir et j'ai accepté".

Aujourd’hui il dirige son pays. Et conduit une équipe de ministres dont aucun ne vient de la politique. Tout juste trentenaire, il est le seul à avoir une
expérience gouvernementale ! Il explique : "J'avais annoncé pendant la campagne que mon gouvernement serait issu de la société civile, qu'il serait
composé d'experts. Certains ne m'ont pas cru. Mais, je tiens toujours les promesses que je fais". A l’économie, il a installé une femme, c’est une première
à ce poste, et une personne issue du monde de l’entreprise, autre première. Margarete Schramböck vient du monde des télécommunications. Car s’il a de
grandes ambitions pour l’Europe, le chancelier en a aussi pour son pays. "Mon objectif est de rendre l’Autriche plus attractive. Et notre programme
gouvernemental propose de nombreuses mesures qui vont clairement dans ce sens." Le texte fait 120 pages au contenu très détaillé

Control Freak.

L’heure tourne. On manque de temps pour revenir sur cette alliance avec le FPÖ qui suscite tant d’interrogations. Au cours des quatre dernières
semaines, le chancelier s’est beaucoup justifié. Le contrat de coalition établit un cadre très strict aux décisions qui seront prises et mises en œuvre par le
gouvernement. La droite populiste a mis de l’eau dans son vin par rapport aux années Haider. Le gouvernement ne fera rien qui soit en contradictions
avec l’ancrage européen traditionnel de l’Autriche. Ses proches glissent aussi mezza voce que « Basti », comme ils l’appellent, est rusé : il a placé le FPÖ
au gouvernement pour mieux le circonvenir. Que dans l’opposition, il serait plus dangereux qu’aux responsabilités…

Le 12 janvier à Paris, il a demandé qu’on lui « laisse une chance » et qu’on le juge sur ses actes. Il n’a, en tout cas, pas essuyé les mêmes réactions
violentes qu’en l’an 2000, quand la droite populiste était arrivée pour la première fois au pouvoir. Alors que Bruxelles avait alors décrété un boycott
diplomatique de Vienne, Sebastian Kurz, lui, a été reçu le 19 décembre par un Jean-Claude Juncker hilare, généreux en accolades, qui a décrété que le
programme gouvernemental de l’Autriche lui convient à « presque 100% ». Mi-janvier, une manifestation à Vienne a rassemblé 20 000 opposants, dix fois
moins qu’il y a dix-sept ans.

On termine par une question brève. Que lui inspirent les adjectifs suivants que la presse autrichienne utilise souvent pour parler de lui. Pour « ambitieux »
et « travailleur », il acquiesce. Pour « control freak », il hésite, sourit légèrement et lâche : "disons que j'ai le souci du détail". Non sans humour, il emploie l’
expression allemande de « Detailverliebt » (amoureux du détail). L’entretien s’achève. Le chancelier va accueillir le visiteur suivant, Oskar Deutsch, le
président des institutions juives d’Autriche.

Young, ambitious and Europhile: Who is Sebastian Kurz, the new Austrian Chancellor?

by Sabine Syfuss-Arnaud

Exclusive. Chancellor of Austria since 18 December, Sebastian Kurz has aroused curiosity and concern in Europe. Curiosity because he is the youngest
ruler in the world. Concern, because this conservative just formed a government with the hard right. Challenges met in Vienna the one who says Europhile,
ambitious, hardworking and concerned about the details.

Exquisitely polite, he apologized for the five minutes late. He has baby cheeks, a cajoling smile, the eyes of a deep blue, but the keen and scrutinizing look
of someone who does not let it be said. As often, he does not wear a tie.

Height ceiling vertiginous, wood paneling on the wall, mirrors and gilding 1930, his office, steeped in history, imposes. But from him, few traces. Everything
is clean, impeccable, tidy. Only personal touch: a work of art, the map of Europe upside down, superimposed a map of the museum district in Vienna.
Europe in reverse, why? He simply comments: & quot; This table, I have it in my office since I was Minister of Foreign Affairs. I love her so much. It is the
work of a young contemporary German artist. "He has charm and he knows it.

Europe is his hobby, the DNA of his politics. He proclaims it whenever he has the opportunity. Moreover, if foreign affairs fell into the hands of a minister
close to the FPÖ, he kept the upper hand on European affairs. His first trip abroad, he made it in Brussels and his first bilateral meeting of Chancellor, he
had it in Paris, with Emmanuel Macron, four days earlier, on January 12th. Beyond the statements of good intentions, it is based on the question of the risk
of a possible rapprochement with the bloc of authoritarian regimes in Eastern Europe. He retorts sharply: "I was often asked the question. Commentators
have often given the answer for me. I say it very clearly: Austria will not join the Visegrad group.

And to add with accent
