  • [01] Louis Michel to visit Lebanon and Israel, 14-17 August 2006

    Louis Michel, the European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid, will visit Lebanon on 14-16 August and Israel on 17 August. In Beirut, he will meet Prime Minister Fouad Siniora and other members of the Lebanese government. He will also meet aid workers and visit centres for internally displaced people (IDPs) to learn directly about the humanitarian priorities and practical challenges. In Tel Aviv, Mr Michel will meet the Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Tzipi Livni, and the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence, Amir Peretz. Commissioner Michel said "Secure humanitarian access to victims of the conflict and an end to hostilities – these are the top priorities that I will address during my visit."

    [02] Mergers: Commission clears proposed acquisition of BP’s Dormagen business by Ineos

    The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation, the proposed acquisition by the UK-based company, Ineos, of BP’s Ethylene Oxide/Ethylene Glycol business in Dormagen, Germany. In December 2005, the Commission approved Ineos’s purchase of BP’s Innovene subsidiary olefin and refining business except the Dormagen business (“BP Dormagen”). The Commission’s preliminary investigation raised serious concerns as to the compatibility of the Ineos/BP Dormagen concentration with the Single Market. However, the Commission’s in-depth investigation concluded that the proposed concentration would not significantly impede competition in the European Economic Area (EEA) or a substantial part of it.

    [04] EU helps Spain to tackle forest fires

    This morning (Wednesday, 9th August), Spain requested European civil protection assistance to help combat the forest fires raging in more that 100 places in the region of Galicia. The request triggered a rapid response from the Monitoring and Information Centre (MIC) of the European Commission. The MIC immediately alerted the civil protection authorities of the 30 countries participating in the Community Civil Protection Mechanism. Within a few hours, Spain received additional fire-fighting airplanes, fire fighters and vehicles from several European Member States. Italy, Portugal and France were the first to provide civil protection assistance through the Community Mechanism. From EUROPA, the European Commission Server at http://europa.eu.int/
