World - Greece seen topping EU economic growth list next year

Greece`s economic growth rate will be the highest in the European Union next year, the European Commission has estimated, although its optimism is based on the assumption that Greece sticks to its bailout commitments. Greece`s economy returned to growth in the second quarter of 2014 after six years of recession, expanding by 1.0 percent over the year, the Commission said in its latest economic forecasts released on Thursday The Commission sees 2015 growth of 2.5 percent as lower oil prices and higher disposable income boost private consumption and exports, notably tourism and shipping, prosper from the weaker euro and increased competitiveness.

The Commission`s report added that there were risks to its forecasts, with political uncertainty threatening to undermine confidence, consumption and investment.

World - U.S. safety regulators probe Lumber Liquidators laminates

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Wednesday it was investigating Chinese-made laminates used by Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc, after reports that the company`s flooring products had too-high levels of formaldehyde. Commission Chairman Elliot Kaye said the regulator would test flooring products from Lumber Liquidators to determine whether they contained levels of formaldehyde, a carcinogen, that could be harmful to human health. Kaye said the commission is `looking at months, unfortunately, not weeks` to determine the potential exposure, and he said it was too soon to tell whether the levels might warrant a possible recall of flooring products. Lumber Liquidators said in a statement on Wednesday that it was cooperating with the safety commission and had turned over its own testing and safety information.

World - Pope orders bishops to cooperate with sex abuse commission

By Philip Pullella VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis on Thursday ordered Roman Catholic bishops around the world to fully cooperate with a commission he set up to protect children from sexual abuse by clerics and to give the issue top priority even if it unearths new scandals. The pope sent the letter to the bishops and heads of religious institutions a day before the commission, which he established last year, was due to hold its first full meeting. In the letter, the pope says: `Everything possible must be done to rid the Church of the scourge of the sexual abuse of minors and to open pathways of reconciliation and healing for those who were abused.`. One of the members of the commission, Marie Collins of Ireland, herself a victim of sexual abuse, told Reuters that commission members had asked the pope to write a letter to thwart any resistance from bishops to its work.

World - EU puts conditions on deals involving Novartis, GSK

The European Union on Wednesday approved mega deals involving drugmakers Novartis of Switzerland and GlaxoSmithKline of Britain, provided they sell off assets in the vaccines and consumer health businesses. The European Commission, the EU`s executive arm, approved GSK`s acquisition of Novartis`s global human vaccines business as well as a tie-up of their global consumer health business under GSK control, it said in a statement. The commission had feared that the transactions, as initially planned, would undermine competition in vaccines against meningitis and diphtheria as well as in a range of consumer health products to stop smoking and to treat cold sores, cold and influenza. To tackle the commission`s concerns, GSK pledged to `grant a worldwide, exclusive, perpetual licence of GSK`s Nimenrix vaccine for bacterial meningitis and divest GSK`s Mencevax vaccine for bacterial meningitis worldwide,` the commission said.
