Amamou at L'engagement 2.0, Le Grand Salon de la Sorbonne, Paris

Tunisian blogger Slim Amamou was in Paris on Tuesday to debate the use of social networks during the Tunisian revolt, and the future of politics shaped by online activism. Amamou, the former Tunisian Secretary of State for Youth and Sport, joined four other bloggers who played a key role in the Tunisian revolution for a conference focused on the role technology played in the country’s uprising. The event, hosted by Jeannette Bougrab, the French Secretary of State for Youth and Community, comes as political parties in Tunisia and the country’s electoral commission debate over the timetable for elections. On Monday the Progressist Democratic Party and the Islamist Ennahda movement conceded a possible delay for the vote. Organisers of the ballot would like to see it moved to October.

The global market for ultraviolet water treatment systems is expected to grow to around 450 million dollars in 2011, rising to almost 630 million dollars by 2015. Major cities around the world are implementing UV technology – New York is currently installing the world’s largest drinking water system with 56 UV reactors – while UV is increasingly being used in innovative wastewater reuse projects. The competitive marketplace sees several companies vying to differentiate their products on the efficiency of their UV lamps and cost, while aggressive research and development is likely to lead to the introduction of new innovations like UV LEDS (Light Omitting Diodes) by 2013.

The Column of Quinconces, in Bordeaux

The second Africa-France business conference starts in Bordeaux on Wednesday, described by some as the African Davos. It aims to bring together 100 African and 100 French firms to foster new business ties.

Coming just after the Nice summit, which saw French President Nicolas Sarkozy acknowledge the importance of African economic powerhouses such as South Africa and Nigeria, this conference sees companies from across the continent gather in what is traditionally the wine capital of France.
