London/Paris:

Cryptocurrency exchange Binance has registered with the French market regulator, Chief Executive Changpeng Zhao said in a tweet on Wednesday, advancing the company’s plan to make Paris its European base.

“It’s a real guarantee of quality,” said Binance France managing director David Prinçay, referring to the registration with the regulator, the AMF.

“The perception is changing. It allows us…to move on to a new phase, that of educating (the French public) on blockchain.”

Blockchain is a shared record of information maintained and updated by a computer network rather than a central authority. Major cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin are based on this technology.

Prinçay said Binance France is now seeking an official license from the French markets regulator to open a regional headquarters in France. Binance claimed that it was the first cryptocurrency exchange in the country even before registration.

France is the first country in the European Union to register Binance, which is also looking to register in Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal and Austria, Prinçay said.

In March, Binance obtained licenses from Dubai and Bahrain.

Last year, Binance received warnings from more than a dozen national regulators, including those in Germany, Italy, and Britain. Some said it was operating without a license in their jurisdiction.

The Binance CEO, widely known by his initials “CZ,” last month pledged to invest 100 million euros ($105.51 million) in France and said he would grant 2 million euros for the restoration of a room in the Palace of Versailles. He also tweeted in support of French President Emmanuel Macron’s re-election bid.

Since its launch in 2017 in Shanghai, Binance has grown aggressively around the world.

A Reuters survey published last month showed that in Russia, where Binance dominates the crypto market, the exchange has expanded its business while building ties with Russian government agencies.

PARIS, November 26 (Reuters) – Incomplete data on wheat exports from France, the European Union’s largest supplier, over the past four months due to a technical failure has angered traders trying to keep up with supply and demand against lower inventory and record prices.

The technical problem of the customs service sending data from France to the European Commission is becoming a major problem as the EU gets off to a good start in the 2021/22 export season.

EU wheat prices hit record highs this week as potential rain damage to Australian crops raised the prospect of increased EU exports.

The Commission’s latest weekly update on Tuesday showed the EU had exported 10.27 million tonnes of common wheat since the start of the season on July 1.

However, the Commission’s EU total includes just over 822,000 tonnes of French exports, compared to around 3.2 million tonnes in freight data compiled by Refinitiv.

This suggests that EU soft wheat exports so far this season are around a quarter above the level reported by the Commission, which has not released full French figures since July.

French customs are working on the flaw, linked to a database change, and it should be resolved in the coming weeks, an official from the finance ministry said.

The prison of Condé-sur-Sarthe, in north-western France, was the scene of a hostage-taking on Tuesday, when an inmate armed with a makeshift blade 15 centimeters long captured two guards and forced them to lock themselves in his cell. As a result, one of them was slightly injured, details the BFMTV channel.

Shortly after the events, more than two hours of negotiations began. During their execution, teams of the RAID, the French special police, arrived on the scene. However, the kidnapper surrendered before an operation began.

According to Explain On the chain the prosecutor François Coudert, the detainee is 33 years old and has been serving a life sentence since 2017 for two rapes and an attempted murder. He was convicted of raping and severely beating two women in one day in 2013. As a result of the attack, one of the victims was disabled for life.

The latter’s lawyer described the criminal as “a psychopathic type, with abject and hateful behavior, who showed no emotion” and who “even broke the microphones of the criminal court”.

In April 2018, the detainee had already used force against the guards of the Bois-d’Arcy prison, where he was then detained. On this occasion, he threw a tray of semolina in the face of an officer, after which he took a knife out of his cell and attempted to assault him. However, he was immediately neutralized and the keeper is unharmed.

Russian discounter Mere is plans to open its first three stores in France in October, as he continues his march through Europe.

According to a website dedicated to the French market, merefrance.com, Mere will open its first stores in Pont-Sainte-Marie, Sainte-Marguerite and Thionville.

He specifies that the Grand Est region has been chosen to “start the development of its network” in France.

Big cities

According to the website, Mere plans to open stores “in all major cities in France” and establish links with suppliers across Europe.

He said he was looking to cooperate with store owners, manufacturers and contractors, to support its expansion.

“Our stores represent new jobs for the local population,” the retailer said, adding that its outlets would help families save “considerably” on their family budgets.

As the group indicates on its website, it offers prices “10 to 20% lower than those of our competitors”, with all products sold from pallets on the ground, in a “no frills” concept.

As for the suppliers he deals with, he requires all suppliers to offer prices between 20% and 30% lower than the competition, adding that these savings can in part be achieved through packaging. – “we do not need shiny and very attractive packaging”, he declared.

Entry into the UK market

In June, Mere said she was targeting 300 stores across the UK, after entering that market. It has also spread to Belgium, Serbia and several other European markets.

Commenting on his entry into the UK earlier this summer, Chris Elliott, Head of Market Analysis at Edge by Ascential, said: “Considering the rise of discounters over the years, Mere will certainly be attractive to a large number of buyers, which will help her become a success.”

The man who negotiated the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union in the name of Brussels now wants to take the reins of the Elysee Palace. Former European Commissioner Michel Barnier on Thursday formalized his intention to run for the French presidential election of the conservative Los Republicanos party in the 2022 elections, for which he will however likely have to go through internal primaries in which several candidates are already running. the imminent arrival of the others is expected.

“I made the decision to be a candidate in the April presidential election (…) Among his priorities, the one who was also a minister in the conservative governments of Nicolas Sarkozy and Jacques Chirac, cited” unite the right, the center and other areas to reform the country “, as well as” limit immigration “or” returns “. place work at the center of our economy”, which must also be more “carbon-free”, a- he summed up.

Barnier’s decision comes as no surprise to anyone. The former senior EU official has flirted with a French candidacy since, with the entry into force of Brexit in December and the conclusion of the agreement that frames post-Brexit bilateral cooperation, later in March he ended to his long stay in Brussels, which started as an MEP in 2009 and continued as EU Commissioner for the Internal Market. His plans for the presidency of the European Commission frustrated, Barnier, 70, now aspires to contest the French presidency from his current occupant, Emmanuel Macron – who has not yet formalized his candidacy – and the far-right leader, Marine . Le Pen, one that the polls place in the presidential final.

However, to even appear on the electoral rolls, Barnier will likely have to undergo a competitive right-wing primaries process. Among the politicians who have already presented themselves are the current president of the Paris region of Île-de-France, Valérie Précresse, the former MEP Philippe Juvin and the national deputy Eric Ciotti, who also announced his candidacy on Thursday in the name of a “strong Right” which defends its ideas “clearly and with force, without shame”. The Republican Senate leader Bruno Retailleau should also join the internal race. Conversely, another of the potential suitors, the former boss of LR Laurent Wauquiez, announced on Thursday that he was resigning from his appearance in order not to “add division to the division” within the party.

Xavier Bertrand, the president of the Altos de Francia region, is also presenting himself on behalf of the right, who nevertheless made it clear that he did not intend to submit to a primary process.

In addition, the card on the left has not yet been configured. Both the leader of France Insoumise, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, and the communist Fabien Roussel and the leader of the Workers’ Struggle, Nathalie Arthaud, have already formalized their candidacies, further weakening the already tenuous possibility of forging a single left-wing candidacy. . However, the environmental field remains to be defined – in September the primaries will be held between Delphine Batho, Jean-Marc Governatori, Yannick Jadot, Eric Piolle and Sandrine Rousseau – and the socialist, where the name of the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, rings. every day stronger without being denied, even if other names are likely to join the race to the left, such as that of former minister Arnaud Montebourg. The former socialist has already argued that he intended to formalize his candidacy on September 4.

Television series broadcast in France such as “Emily in Paris”, “Lupine” or “Marseille” stimulate tourism in the localities. The French news magazine L’Express reports that it attracts foreign viewers, especially in the highlights of the series.

In the capital, these are the locations of the cliché series “Emily in Paris”, in front of which tourists took serial selfies. A restaurant very frequented by the protagonist added an “Emily Menu” to the menu. And a bookstore often featured in the series is also happy to welcome new customers. And the interest will not weaken anytime soon: the shooting of a second season has just ended.

The popular series of crooks “Lupine” brings an unexpected increase in the number of visitors to the seaside resort of Etretat in Normandy with its chalk cliffs, since an important scenario took place there during the second season. Requests from foreign journalists and viewers have multiplied, said the spokesperson for the local tourist office, Éric Baudet, Express. “Even if we cannot quantify it, we cannot deny the impact that Netflix has had on Étretat.” Environmentalists warn, however, that the chalk cliffs and their surroundings are overcrowded with large numbers of visitors.

As L’Express writes, the port city still benefits today from the Netflix series “Marseille”, launched in 2016 and 2017. Even if the share of the series in the city’s tourist boom is not quantified, several foreign guests mentioned the series, said the director of the tourism and congress office, Maxime Tissot. There is also an additional positive side effect: Marseille also turned to other film and television productions – there were 441 days of filming in 2019.

A study carried out by the French Center for Cinema and Animated Image (CNF) in 2018 also shows that films can boost tourism. 74% of tourists who saw a movie or series shot in France said it had sparked the desire to travel to the country.

Mass abstention marks regional elections in France https://cerib.org/mass-abstention-marks-regional-elections-in-france/ https://cerib.org/mass-abstention-marks-regional-elections-in-france/#respond Sun, 20 Jun 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://cerib.org/mass-abstention-marks-regional-elections-in-france/ The strong abstention is fast becoming a constant in the French elections when it is not the presidential elections.

The strong abstention is fast becoming a constant in the French elections when it is not the presidential elections. Today, 47.7 million French people are called to the polls in the first round of regional and departmental elections and, at 5 p.m., 26.72% of voters had voted, a drop of 16 points compared to the previous call in 2015 , according to the Interior Ministry.

If this trend continues until schools close at 8:00 p.m., France could beat a record of abstention in regional and departmental schools. A screening of the Ifop institute predicts that the percentage will drop by the end of election day to 68%, with only 32% turnout.

The waiver of the right to vote in some appeals is not new, although it is in these proportions. Turnout also collapsed in the last election, held during the covid-19 pandemic.

In the first round of municipal elections, on the eve of the first confinement in March 2020, the abstention was 55.3%. In the second, which was postponed and finally held in June, it was even higher: 58.4%.

Today, France is in a very different situation. The pandemic is under control, vaccination is advancing at an accelerated rate, shops, restaurants and shows have reopened and, as of this week, it is no longer mandatory to wear a mask in the street and the curfew has just been survey.

The pandemic and the half-gas campaign, in this context, only partially explain the high rate of abstention. The good weather and the desire to enjoy the outdoors and summer after months of isolation could also explain the emptiness of the polling stations.

But there are deeper causes, trends that COVID-19 has only consolidated. One of them is the disaffection with politics on the part of a part of the population. Another, indifference to the possibility of a conquest of extreme right-wing power: in other times, it could have mobilized many voters; today this option is less frightening.

The characteristics of regional and departmental elections do not facilitate mobilization either. In a hyper-centralized country, where the head of state holds considerable power compared to other western democracies, the elections that count, for many citizens, are presidential. Perhaps also the municipal ones, where the mayor embodies the power of proximity.

The elections of June 20 and 27, halfway between the two, have more blurred outlines. If to all this is added that the powers of the regions are rare, or in any case little known to voters, all the ingredients seem to be breaking abstention records.
