PR is associated with the 30th anniversary of CES as a "hot spot" of the political system.

In a note posted on the website of the President of the Republic on the Internet, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa recalled three decades of the CES and emphasized “the role of successive governments in statements on budgets, plans and labor laws.”

The head of state also highlighted “attempts – some of which were successful – social consultation, study and discussion of major issues, from demography to education, from health care to social security.”

Thus, the Economic and Social Council has established itself “as an important factor in the political system of Portugal,” added the President of the Republic.

The CES is 30 years old, without any major celebrations, but the president insists that the date should be used to rethink its model and enhance its role in Portuguese society.

In accordance with the Constitution of the republic, the SES was officially created by Law No. 108/91 of August 17, which defined its nature and competence, but began to function only a year later, due to a delay in the adoption of a decision. regulation.

To mark the occasion, a new image of the CES will be created with a new website and a historical publication will be published.

President of the Economic and Social Council Francisco Assis said in an interview with news agency Lusa about a month ago that he prefers to use the event to “foster reflection and debate” on the role of CES in Portuguese society. and instructed academician Miguel Poyares Maduro to coordinate this work.

The aim is to try to figure out what the current ESC should be like and if the layers of Portuguese society are properly represented.

“I think there are issues that need to be addressed and we want to reevaluate the CES Plenary and make the commissions and working groups work at full capacity,” Francisco Assis told Lusa.

Changes to the internal regulations of the CES are envisaged, and a proposal to amend its constitution will be studied, which will later be passed on to parliamentary groups.

For its president, CES cannot simply be the body that issues constitutionally mandated opinions, namely on the state budget or grand plan options (GOP), and cannot simply be the body that houses the Standing Commission on Social Work (CPCS). …

“This is a moment of transformation and CES needs to take on its role, (…) without discounting consistency, it is necessary to make CES the center of thought production,” said Francisco Assis.

Since its inception, CES has consisted of a plenary meeting, CPCS and specialized commissions.

With the creation of CES, the Permanent Council for Social Consultation was abolished, which was disputed by trade unions and business confederations, which demanded that the government create a social consultation section with absolute autonomy, which it did.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario



The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
