  • [01] Competition: Commission vetoes decision by German regulator on call termination in fixed telephone networks

    The European Commission has vetoed, a decision by the German regulator, RegTP (‘Regulierungsbehörde für Telekommunikation und Post’), not to regulate ex ante telephone call termination services provided by alternative network operators (ANOs). The Commission decision is based on Article 7(4) of the Electronic Communications Framework Directive (2002/21/EC). Operators need to buy call termination services from each other whenever their customers make a call to a different network, and the charge is generally passed on to the consumer placing the call. RegTP intended to regulate ex ante termination charges of Deutsche Telecom but not those of ANOs. Following the Commission decision, RegTP will have to revise its approach.

    [02] Danuta Hübner presents “state of the regions” report

    The European Commissioner responsible for regional policy, Danuta Hübner, presented today the “Third Progress Report on Cohesion”. The report describes the state of the regions in the enlarged European Union in terms of levels of income, employment and productivity. It also provides information on the ways that Member States and regions have used the opportunity of the mid-term review of the Structural Funds to make adjustments to their development programmes.

    [03] EU proposes WTO consultations with China on two textile product categories

    EU Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson is today proposing to the Commission that it launch formal consultations with China for two of the nine categories of textile imports from China currently under investigation: T- shirts and flax yarn. In view of the seriousness of market disruption in these categories, formal consultations need to begin immediately. These consultations will involve urgent discussions between China and the EU on how best to limit growth in Chinese exports in these categories. Under WTO rules, incorporated into China’s accession protocol to the WTO, China is expected to use this period of consultation to propose means to manage the surge in its exports. Only if China does not take effective action will the Commission propose temporary limits on the growth of Chinese exports in the categories concerned in 2005.
