Meglena Kouneva joins office of EC Transport Commissioner

The news was confirmed by Kouneva, who told Focus that she was scheduled to take part in a discussion on transport issues with a focus on European air traffic problems caused by the eruption of the Eyjafjallajoekull volcano in Iceland.
EU transport ministers will hold emergency talks by video conference to discuss possibly easing air travel restrictions and ending the air traffic crisis.
"For me personally it is very important to have a meaningful and substantial relation in my work with the EC. This would give the chance to grasp the problems on a different level, which is very useful for Bulgaria. That's one of the reasons why I accepted this position with great joy," Kouneva told Focus.
Ever since she stepped down as EC commissioner in January 2010, Kouneva's professional future was subject to a lot of media speculation.
She is a member of Bulgaria's National Movement for Stability and Progress (NMSP) party and some speculation had it that she would come back to Bulgaria and dive into domestic politics ahead of the upcoming elections for President in 2011. She was top of NMSP's ticket for the 2009 elections for European Parliament and as such helped the party win two seats. However, she decided not to give up her seat, but still finished her term as European Commissioner.
In February 2010, Kouneva said that she had rejected EC Commission President José Manuel Barroso's offer to appoint her as head of the Bureau of European Policy Advisers (BEPA), the in-house Commission think-tank.
In April, a report in Bulgarian-language Dnevnik daily said that French bank BNP Paribas would expand its board of directors with four new members, among them Kouneva. The nominations would be made on May 12 during a meeting of the bank's shareholders, Dnevnik said, quoting French financial daily Les Echos.
"I have received several offers, including by the European Commission for important policy making, but for the moment I have not replied to any of them," Kouneva told Dnevnik at the time. She also said that as a former European Commissioner, such decisions had to be co-ordinated with the Commission's ethics board.
"I am happy that in my capacity as a commissioner, my efforts have not gone unnoticed," she was quoted by Dnevnik as saying.
In May 2002 Kouneva, now 52, was appointed Bulgaria's first Minister of European Affairs in the NMSP government of Simeon Saxe-Coburg.
On 26 October 2006, Kouneva was nominated to be Bulgaria's first member of the European Commission. Barosso assigned her the portfolio of consumer protection.

Commissioner Kuneva presents a "soft contract" for ANEC
Commissioner Meglena Kuneva After delivering her keynote address to ANEC's 18th General Assembly meeting, Mrs Meglena Kuneva, Member of the European Commission responsible for Consumer Policy, handed her speech to the ANEC President and declared that it represented her "soft contract" with ANEC, and, through ANEC, with European consumers.
In her speech, the Commissioner confirmed the need to support ANEC from public funds in order to provide consumers with an independent and authoritative voice at European level. In the extension of the 'digital world' to ever more aspects of daily life, the importance of promoting and defending consumer interests became ever more evident. Mrs Kuneva therefore welcomed the decision of the Council and Parliament to secure the funding of ANEC through the Consumer Programme 2007 to 2013.
On the issue of the revision of the "New Approach", the Commissioner thanked ANEC for its participation in the public consultation and its response to the Commission proposal. She accepted ANEC's assertion that the New Approach should not be considered the only 'approach' in the harmonisation of laws for products and services. She also touched upon the safety of services, and the role of standards should play in this regard. Finally, Mrs Kuneva welcomed the continued commitment of ANEC and its experts to represent consumer interests in European standardisation, noting that the Commission considers standardisation to be a cornerstone of 'better regulation' in EU policy making.
The keynote address was made by Commissioner Meglena Kuneva (see cover).
