  • [01] Commission clears joint venture between Wacker and Air Products in the field of dispersions and powders

    The European Commission has authorised Wacker-Chemie GmbH (Wacker) and Air Products and Chemicals Inc (Air Products) to combine their worldwide dispersions and powders business. The merger does not raise competition concerns in the European Economic Area (EEA) given Air Products' relatively minor presence there prior to the operation and intense competition within the EEA and worldwide on the relevant markets.

    [02] La Commission autorise une entreprise commune de services interactifs en France

    La Commission européenne a autorisé la création d'une entreprise commune de plein exercice entre Cegetel, Canal+, America Online et Bertelsmann pour la prestation de services interactifs aux particuliers en France. La Commission a constaté que l'opération ne créera ni ne renforcera une position dominante. Elle ne mènera pas non plus à une coopération anticoncurrentielle entre les sociétés mères. L'opération concerne la création d'une entreprise commune appelée AOL/CIS France S.A.S., dont les activités seront la commercialisation, le développement et la prestation de services interactifs aux clients qui ne sont pas des entreprises.

    [03] Business and Consumer surveys for July 1998 : positive economic outlook in Europe

    The latest results from the business and consumer surveys conducted by the European Commission's Directorate General for economic and financial affairs are published today. Economic sentiment in the European Union (EU) improved in July compared with June. The increase in the leading indicator was more pronounced in the euro-zone (EUR-11) than for the EU as a whole. The consumer confidence indicator remained stable compared with last month for the EU as a whole, whereas it increased in the EUR-11. There were however large differences between countries in consumers' confidence : in Germany and France there was a marked improvement, though in Italy and the United Kingdom the opposite was recorded. Capacity utilisation in manufacturing industry in the EU continues to be high according to the latest results.
