158 Recent Developments in EU Environmental Policy and Lav* This section briefly reports on significant political initiatives as well as legal acts and political strate- gies adopted in the environmental field between mid-July and mid-September 2004. General Matters and Cross-Cutting Issues 1. New European Commissioner for the Environment On 12 August 2004 lose Manuel Barroso, incoming president of the new Commission, nominated 61 year old Greek lawyer Stavros Dimas as new Environment Commissioner. On the condition that Mr. Dimas and his colleagues are, as a whole, approved by the European Parliament they will, as of i November 2004, start their work under the over arching political objective of contributing to a revitalisation of the EU economy, thereby creating growth and new jobs. This objective and the overall set-up of the new Commission give rise to the suspicion that a relative down- scaling of regulatory initiatives in the environ- mental field will happen over the next five years. This might result in increased emphasis of the Commission on the effective implementation of EU environmental law, particularly in the new EU Member States. 2.
