  • [01] Commission opens detailed investigation into the BP Amoco / Arco concentration

    The European Commission has decided to open a full investigation into certain aspects of the proposed merger between oil companies BP Amoco and Atlantic Richfield (Arco). The Commission will make a detailed assessment of the impact of the transaction on competition conditions in exploration, development and production of crude oil. Moreover, the Commission will look at the UK markets for the transmission by pipeline and processing of gas produced in the North Sea part of the UK Continental Shelf.

    [02] La Commission donne son feu vert à une concentration entre Media Planning et Havas Advertising

    La Commission européenne a autorisé une opération de concentration par laquelle l'entreprise française Havas Advertising S.A., qui appartient au groupe Vivendi, prendra le contrôle du groupe espagnol Media Planning. L'opération proposée débouchera sur la création d'un important opérateur européen dans le secteur de l'achat d'espace publicitaire. Elle a été autorisée au motif qu'elle ne crée ni ne renforce une position dominante sur aucun des marchés sur lesquels les deux entreprises sont présentes.

    [03] ECHO alloue 50 millions d'euros pour le plan de retour des réfugiés au Kosovo

    L'Office humanitaire de la Communauté Européenne vient d'allouer 50 millions d'euros pour le plan de retour et de rapatriement des réfugiés au Kosovo élaboré conjointement par le UNHCR et ECHO à Skopje (ex-République Yougoslave de Macédoine).

    [04] Belgium, Austria, Italy, UK win prizes in European young consumer competition

    Aspiring young writers and film-makers from Belgium, Austria, Italy and the United Kingdom were awarded prizes today, at the headquarters of the European Commission in Brussels, for their projects in the 1998-1999 European young consumer competition. This year, groups of young people, aged from 10-14, were asked to produce a brochure or a video designed to provide information about the euro. The Athénée Royal de la Communauté Française of Esneux, Belgium, won 1st prize for a brochure quizzing readers on their knowledge about the single currency ; the Europa Hauptschule of Vienna, Austria, won 2nd prize for another brochure making fun of some people's euro-scepticism ; the Scuola Media Statale "Silvestro Lega" of Modigliana, Italy, won 3rd prize for a video in which the younger generation explains to the older that there is nothing to fear from the euro. The young jury prize went to the Ardrossan Academy of Ayrshire, UK, for another video emphasising the advantages of the euro, especially for comparing prices across borders.
