  • [01] La Commission approuve l'acquisition de Mannesmann Hoesch Präzisrohr GmbH par Mannesmannröhren-Werke

    La Commission européenne vient d'approuver le projet de Mannesmannröhren- Werke AG (MRW) situé à Mülheim an der Ruhr de faire passer de 50 à 100% sa participation à Mannesmann Hoesch Präzisrohr GmbH (MHP) situé à Hamm également en Allemagne. MHP produit et distribue des tubes en acier de précision et est à l'heure actuelle contrôlé conjointement par MRW et Krupp Hoesch Stahl AG. La fusion envisagée ne conduit pas à une augmentation de parts de marché puisque MRW assume déjà un contrôle conjoint de MHP et n'est pas actif dans le secteur des tubes de précision.

    [02] New EU-Yemen cooperation agreement

    The European Commission and Yemen initialled yesterday a draft cooperation agreement which will replace the existing 1984 agreement. The new agreement, which will now be proposed to the Council of Ministers for approval, has been developed in response to a variety of positive economic and political developments since the end of civil unrest in Yemen in 1994. It contains a human rights and democracy clause, and on top of the chapter on development co-operation, there is a new emphasis on economic cooperation. The new agreement also includes articles on trade cooperation (aiming to develop two-way trade and improve market access in the two parties), regional cooperation (aiming to encourage cooperation between Yemen and its neighbours), and social cooperation (promoting the equality of women and the improvement of the social protection system).

    [03] Anita Gradin: "Preparations in the field of justice and home affairs are essential for enlargement"

    "The preparations for the next enlargement of the European Union are currently a priority for the European Commission", said Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner Anita Gradin, addressing the Committee of Civil Liberties in the European Parliament Monday. "We must firstly prepare ourselves. The clearer the guidelines we have for cooperation between the 15 Member States, the easier it will be for the associated countries to adjust. The results of the negotiations on institutional questions in the Intergovernmental Conference will be extremely important. The applicant countries themselves must also get ready. There is certainly a great deal still left to be done, particularly in the area of the Justice and Home Affairs."
