  • [01] La Commission approuve des aides à l'entreprise Sovel-Laminoir

    La Commission européenne n'a pas soulevé d'objection à l'égard des aides à l'investissement destinées à l'usine de laminage de l'entreprise sidérurgique grecque Sovel située à Almiros, près de Volos. Les investissements bénéficiaires de ces aides concernent notamment un nouveau four de réchauffage de billettes, une automatisation complète de l'installation principale de laminage ainsi que des nouveaux systèmes de contrôle des paramètres de laminage, une installation de mesurage et emballage de barres et des installations auxiliaires. La Commission a approuvé les aides compte tenu de leur compatibilité avec les règles de l'Union européenne applicables aux aides aux entreprises sidérurgiques.

    [02] World No Tobacco Day - 31 May : Padraig Flynn reviews EU's action to fight smoking

    Speaking in advance of "World No Tobacco Day - 31 May", Padraig Flynn, European Commissioner with responsibility for health matters, reviewed recent Commission action to tackle smoking - a habit that kills half a million people in the European Union each year. He singled out as "landmark events" the June 1998 Directive to curb tobacco advertising and sponsorship and the conference to be held this July to formulate recommendations on ways to regulate the yields of nicotine, tar and carcinogens in tobacco products. Mr Flynn also referred to the numerous campaigns and programmes such as "Europe against Cancer" that target at the general public and more especially at high-risk groups such as women and young people, who are taking up smoking in ever greater numbers. A detailed report of the progress made by the Commission in this field since its 1996 Communication on Combating Tobacco Consumption is now being prepared for submission to the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers.
