  • [01] Commission expresses solidarity with victims of floods

    In the name of the European Commission, President Romano Prodi expressed his sympathy for the populations affected by the bad weather in Europe, in particular Germany, Austria and Czech Republic, and especially for the victims and their families. During telephone conversations with the Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schüssel and the President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Havel, President Prodi assured that the Commission was exploring all the possibilities of financial solidarity of the EU with the populations affected, notably through the EU Structural Funds and pre- accession funds for the candidate countries. A similar telephone conversation is scheduled for tomorrow Friday with the German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder. A range of financial possibilities have been already identified.

    [02] Commission refers the assessment of Vía Digital's merger with Sogecable to the Spanish Competition Authorities.

    The Commission has decided to grant the referral requested by the Spanish Competition Authorities with regard to the integration of the two satellite digital television platforms operating in Spain. The operation, that threatens to bring about anti-competitive effects in a number of markets within Spain, will therefore be assessed by the Spanish authorities according to this State's national competition law.

    [03] Commission clears the acquisition of BauMineral Herten by Alsen and E.ON

    The European Commission has given the go-ahead for Alsen AG to acquire, jointly with E.ON Kraftwerke GmbH, control over BauMineral Herten GmbH, which is active in the processing and sale of mineral construction materials that are by-products of electricity generation in coal-fired power plants, in particular hard-coal fly ash ("Steinkohlenflugasche").

    [04] Republic of Suriname: European Commission agrees €19.1 million Cooperation Programme

    The European Commission and the Government of Suriname have agreed a Country Strategy document worth €19.1 million for the period 2002-2007. The cooperation strategy is based on the principles of partnership and ownership enshrined in the EU-ACP Cotonou Agreement, signed in June 2000. This programme serves as a framework for relations with Suriname, covering all aspects of aid to the country. The main objective is to support the government's efforts to reduce poverty through sustainable economic and social development. The main focus of the funds will be on the transport sector.

    [05] Trinidad and Tobago: Commission approves €17.9 million Cooperation Programme

    The European Commission and the Government of Trinidad and Tobago have agreed a Country Strategy document worth €17.9 million for the period 2002- 2007. This programme serves as a framework for relations with Trinidad and Tobago, covering all aspects of aid to the country. The main objective is to support the government's efforts to reduce poverty through sustainable economic and social development. The main focus of the funds will be education and health. Welcoming the adoption, the Member of the Commission responsible for development cooperation and humanitarian aid, Poul Nielson, commented " This programme is the result of a common analysis of the challenges faced by Trinidad and Tobago as well as the capacity of the EU to effectively assist in the country's own efforts to meet those challenges".
