  • [01] Commission approves acquisition of joint control of HEW by Vattenfall and the Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg

    The European Commission has approved an operation by which Vattenfall AB, Sweden, and the Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg (FHH), a German Bundesland, acquire joint control of the German electricity generator Hamburgische Electricitäts-Werke AG (HEW). The operation leads to insignificant overlaps in the energy sector and does therefore not raise competition concerns.

    [02] Baisse des redevances d'interconnexion des réseaux fixes de télécommunications en Europe

    La Commission européenne a actualisé sa recommandation concernant les redevances de "meilleure pratique actuelle" pour les réseaux fixes de télécommunications pour 2000. Cette recommandation vise à fournir des orientations aux opérateurs de réseaux et aux autorités réglementaires nationales.

    [03] Montenegro the EU contribution

    European Commissioner for External Relations Chris Patten announced yesterday at the General Affairs Council the doubling of support from the European Union's Obnova 2000 budget line for projects in support of Montenegro from euro 10 million to euro 20 million. At this occasion, the Commission also distributed to Member States Ministers of Foreign Affairs a fact sheet on Montenegro - the EU contribution.

    [04] Poul Nielson addresses the ACP-EU joint parliamentary assembly in Abuja, Nigeria

    As part of his two day official visit to Nigeria, the European Commissioner for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid, Mr Poul Nielson, today delivered a speech to the 30th ACP-EU Joint Assembly on the subject of the new EU-ACP Partnership Agreement, which will succeed the Lomé IV Convention. Mr Nielson hailed the new agreement as 'modern, comprehensive and innovative which will inspire and guide EU-ACP relations over the next 20 years in the areas of poverty eradication, trade, development and political dialogue'. The Agreement is due to be signed in Fiji on 8 June. Whilst in Nigeria, Mr Nielson will meet with the Nigerian President, Mr Obasanjo. He will also hold bilateral meetings with other members of the Nigerian government and sign two financing agreements.
