  • [01] European Commission strengthens cooperation with China on employment and social affairs

    Vladimír `pidla, EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities, will today arrive in China for a three-day visit to strengthen cooperation on employment and social affairs issues. He will sign an EU-China agreement to promote policy dialogue on issues of common interest and on long-term challenges in employment and social policy, such as demographic ageing.

    [02] European Commission and European Investment Bank Launch new Instrument to Finance European Transport Network

    Today the European Commission and the European Investment Bank (EIB) signed a Cooperation Agreement establishing the Loan Guarantee Instrument for trans-European transport network projects (LGTT). This new instrument will facilitate greater participation of the private sector in the financing of transport infrastructure of European significance, especially for investments in TENs projects where there is a high level of revenue risk in the early operational period of a project. The LGTT, which forms part of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) programme and the EIB's Action for Growth initiative, will partially cover this risk and thereby significantly improve the financial viability of TENs investments. The capital contribution of €1 billion (€500 million each from the Commission and the EIB) is intended to support up to €25 billion of total capital investment.

    [03] L'aviation générale et d'affaires l'ordre du jour de la Commission

    Aujourd'hui, la Commission européenne a adopté un ordre du jour pour l'aviation générale et d'affaires en Europe. Pour la première fois depuis la création du marché intérieur de l'aviation, la Commission a étudié ce secteur, a quantifié sa valeur et a identifié les défis auxquels il doit faire face. La Commission propose maintenant d'intégrer l'aviation générale et d'affaires dans la politique de l'UE en matière de transports aériens. Améliorer la collecte de données, examiner la législation afin d'assurer la proportionnalité et l'intégrer l'aviation générale et d'affaires dans les initiatives d'optimisation des ressources constituent les principaux éléments de ce projet.

    [04] Commission clears acquisition of Sagem by Gores Group

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of sole control of Sagem Communications (Sagem) of France by Gores Group LLC (Gores Group) of the US. Gores Group is a private equity investor company. Sagem is active in the communications hardware business, producing end user equipment used in mobile and broadband communications. The operation was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.

    [05] M. Mario Monti a présente ses idées pour faire avancer l'interconnexion électrique France-Espagne

    [06] Mergers: Commission approves acquisition of Solvay's caprolactones business by Perstorp

    The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of the caprolactones business of Solvay Interox Limited of the UK by the Swedish chemicals company Perstorp Holding AB (Perstorp). After examining the operation, the Commission concluded that the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area (EEA) or any substantial part of it.
