  • [01] Commissioner van den Broek welcomes Lithuania's plans to speed up reforms: Nuclear safety a priority

    At the end of a 2 day visit to Lithuania, Hans van den Broek European Commissioner i.a. responsible for relations with Central and Eastern Europe, expressed support for Lithuania's application to join the EU and urged the government to speed up preparations for membership. " We pointed out areas of progress as well as areas where work is needed and reiterated that assistance through the Phare programme is available", the Commissioner said, adding: "Implementation of the government's reform package with its focus on enterprise privatisation, price liberalisation and banking sector reform will be crucial if Lithuania is to compete in the internal market. The fight against corruption and the security of what in the future will become the Union's external borders are important elements in preparing for membership".

    [02] Infringements in the Social Field

    The European Commission has decided to take further steps in three infringement proceedings against Member States in the social field. Reasoned opinions are to be sent to France, Italy and Greece, for their failure to apply Community law. The French case concerns failure to respect the principle of equal treatment in social security. The Italian case concerns discrimination based on nationality, and the Greek case concerns equal treatment between women and men in social security systems. These Member States now have two months to react.

    [03] Forum européen sur la Cohésion relever: les défis du futur

    Du 28 au 30 avril 1997, se tiendra à Bruxelles un vaste débat sur la cohésion économique et sociale en Europe. Cette rencontre, organisée à l'initiative de Mme Monika Wulf-Mathies, Commissaire responsable pour la politique régionale et la cohésion, permettra d'examiner les résultats des politiques de l'Union en matière de cohésion, d'étudier les possibilités d'amélioration de ces politiques et d'envisager leurs adaptations face aux défis du futur. Plus d'un millier de représentants des institutions européennes, des autorités nationales, régionales et locales ainsi que des opérateurs économiques, des partenaires sociaux, et d'instituts ont été invités. Les pays d'Europe Centrale et Orientale seront aussi représentés.

    [04] Commission declares RSB PSG/TENEX nuclear forwarding joint venture not to be a concentration under the EC Merger Regulation.

    The European Commission has decided that the nuclear forwarding joint venture between RSB Logistic Projektspedition GmbH & Co. KG ("RSB PSG") and AO Techsnabexport ("TENEX") is not a concentration within the meaning of the Merger Regulation. The joint venture will provide logistic services and transport of products used in the nuclear industry mainly in trade with Russia and has been notified by RSB PSG and TENEX under the Merger Regulation. According to the Commission's analysis, the joint venture will not be a full function one. It lacks the necessary assets such as special transportation equipment, specialised staff or know-how which would enable it to provide forwarding services for nuclear products on the market. The joint venture will provide its services mainly to the parent company TENEX.

    [05] La Commission donne son feu vert à l'entreprise commune entre Cereol et Ösat

    La Commission européenne a donné son feu vert à l'acquisition par Cereol, filiale du groupe agro-alimentaire Eridania Béghin-Say, du contrôle en commun de Ölmühle, jusqu'ici filiale de la société holding autrichienne Ösat. Cereol est active dans les secteurs de la trituration d'oléagineux et le raffinage d'huiles végétales, dans cinq pays de l'Union européenne. Ösat est contrôlée conjointement par des coopératives et organisations autrichiennes d'agriculteurs et de négociants en produits agricoles, ainsi que par un producteur de sucre et d'amidon (Agrana). L'entreprise commune prévoit d'augmenter son activité actuelle de trituration de semences de tournesol et de colza. Ölmühle produira des tourteaux, de l'huile végétale et du biodiesel, principalement à destination du marché autrichien.
