  • [01] L'UE contribue pour €38,9 millions Ă la promotion des produits agricoles

    La Commission européenne a approuvé 23 programmes dans 11 Etats membres (Allemagne, France, République tchèque, Grèce, Espagne, Italie, Pays-Bas, Hongrie, Autriche, Pologne, et Portugal) afin de donner des informations sur les produits agricoles et d'en assurer la promotion dans l'Union européenne. Cofinancé à raison de 50% par l'UE, le budget total des programmes – dont la durée est comprise entre un et trois ans – est de €77,7 millions. Les programmes retenus concernent les produits biologiques, les produits agricoles de qualité (AOP/IGP/STG), les produits laitiers, la viande de volaille, le vin, les fruits et légumes et le miel.

    [02] Commission clears acquisition of ESG by Apax

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of sole control of Electro-Stock Grup SL (ESG) of Spain by Apax Partners Worldwide LLP (Apax) of the UK. Apax provides private equity fund advisory and management services to funds investing primarily in Europe in a range of industrial sectors. ESG distributes electrical components in Spain, primarily to electrical installers and builders. The operation was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.

    [03] Commission clears acquisition of nine European hotels in the Hilton chain by Morgan Stanley

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of sole control of a portfolio of nine European hotels, currently controlled by Hilton Hotels Corporation (Hilton) of the US by Morgan Stanley Real Estate F International Funding, L.P. (MSREF) of the US, part of the Morgan Stanley group of companies (MS) of the US. MSREF is active in real estate investment and management. MS is a global financial services institution. Hilton owns, manages and franchises hotels. The operation was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.

    [04] La Commission autorise le projet de rachat de Magyar Hipermarket par Louis Delhaize

    La Commission européenne a autorisé, en vertu du règlement CE sur les concentrations, le projet d'acquisition de Magyar Hipermarket Kft, un détaillant hongrois exploitant plusieurs hypermarchés, par le détaillant belge Louis Delhaize S.A. Elle est parvenue à la conclusion que l'opération n'aurait pas pour conséquence d’entraver de manière significative une concurrence effective dans l'Espace économique européen ou dans une partie substantielle de celui-ci.

    [05] Commission adopts new guidelines for coal and steel research

    The European Commission has adopted a proposal for a Council Decision on the revised guidelines for spending funds on coal & steel research. The Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) has an annual budget of about €60 million for research in these two areas, financed by interest on the assets of the now expired European Coal and Steel Community Treaty. The RFCS programme is a separate, complementary programme to the Research Framework programme and covers all aspects of coal and steel, from production processes to application, looking at the utilisation and conversion of resources, safety at work and environmental protection by improving the use of coal as a clean energy source and reducing CO² emissions from coal use and steel production.

    [06] Tennis, rugby, cyclisme, football sur liste française des événements majeurs prévue par la Directive "Télévision sans frontières"

    La liste des événements majeurs notifiée par la France a été publiée aujourd'hui au Journal officiel de l'Union européenne. L'utilisation de cette possibilité, que donne la directive "Télévision sans frontières" depuis 1997 et qui sera maintenue dans la nouvelle directive sur les services de médias audiovisuels, donne aux autorités françaises les moyens de garantir que la plus grande partie de ses téléspectateurs auront accès en clair à quelques grands événements. En effet, la liste française a pour effet d'obliger les radiodiffuseurs établis sur le territoire français ainsi que tous les radiodiffuseurs des autres Etats membres susceptibles d'acquérir des droits exclusifs sur les événements concernés, de les diffuser en clair sur des chaînes reçues par au moins 85% des foyers en France.

    [07] Danuta HĂĽbner in Cantabria (Spain) : fostering Research and Development for a stronger Sustainable Growth

    European Regional policy Commissioner Danuta Hübner visited the Spanish C.A. of Cantabria on 9 July. She met Mr Miguel Angel Revilla, President of Cantabria, Ms Dolores Gorostiaga and Mr Angel Agudo, the Vice-President and the Regional Minister for Economy and Finance of the Regional Government, as well as the regional media. She opened the international seminar on 'Issues and Challenges for the Spanish Public Finance in a Global World' at the International University Menéndez Pelayo. Then, she went to Santoña, where she visited both a tidal power production plant and a factory within the local fishery cluster, which have been co-funded by the Structural Funds.

    [08] Welcoming Cyprus and Malta into the euro area

    The ECOFIN meeting today is expected to take the formal decision on the adoption by Cyprus and Malta of the euro on 1 January 2008 as well as on the conversion rate of the Cypriot pound and the Maltese lira into the euro.
