Statistics reveal the level of “life satisfaction” among citizens of the European Union

The European Union statistical body Eurostat published the degree of life satisfaction among citizens of EU countries. Participants' answers were on a scale from 0, “not at all satisfied,” to 10, “very satisfied.”

In 18 of the 27 EU countries, overall life satisfaction was rated above or equal to the EU average. The classification was made based on the results of a survey conducted in 2022.

Residents of Austria are the most satisfied with life (7.9), Finland, Poland and Romania (7.7 each), and Belgium and the Netherlands (7.6 each). The lowest rate is in Bulgaria (5.6). Slightly better in Germany (6.5) and Greece (6.7).

Eurostat said that all countries, except Bulgaria, recorded a life satisfaction rate higher than 6, meaning that the majority of people in the European Union said they were more satisfied than dissatisfied.

She pointed out that life satisfaction can be affected by many factors, such as age, level of education, social and financial status, in addition to the diversity of an individual’s experiences, choices, priorities and values.

Italy: We suffer losses as a result of Houthi attacks in the Red Sea

Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Taiani announced that his country is suffering losses as a result of Houthi attacks on commercial ships in the Red Sea.

The minister told reporters on Monday, "The economic losses caused by the Houthi rebel attacks have appeared, especially to the southern ports and Genoa."

Tayani confirmed that he will visit the Middle East soon, adding: “In recent days, I spoke with all the foreign ministers of the G7 countries, and the common goal is to stop the escalation.”

He continued: “Unfortunately, the situation is very complicated in Lebanon and the Red Sea, and we must ensure that there is no escalation of the conflict, because the economic damage to Italy may also be great, and we must avoid that.”

The Italian Foreign Ministry said that a meeting was held on Monday between the leadership of the Council of Ministers and the Ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs, during which the situation in the Red Sea was discussed, and the participants agreed on the basic principles that will be presented during upcoming international meetings, including during the meeting of foreign ministers of European Union countries on January 22. It will discuss the establishment of European naval forces to protect ships in the Red Sea.

According to the Italian Agricultural Producers Association, Coldiretti, the situation in the Red Sea threatens Italian vegetable and fruit exports worth half a billion euros.

Italian government officials had previously stated that Italy was ready to participate in a possible European Union operation to protect ships in the Red Sea.
