  • [01] Commission clears a merger concerning Birmingham International Airport

    The European Commission has authorised a joint venture through which the two companies which are active in the operation and management of Birmingham International Airport, Birmingham International Airport Ltd. and Eurohub (Birmingham) Ltd., will in the future be jointly controlled by the seven District Councils of the British West Midlands on the one hand, and Aer Rianta International cpt and NatWest Ventures Ltd of the National Westminster Bank group on the other hand. The Commission has concluded that there is neither creation nor strengthening of a dominant position as a result of the proposed operation and has, therefore, decided not to oppose it.

    [02] Eurobarometer: Central and Eastern European candidate countries see their future increasingly linked to the EU

    The new Eurobarometer which has done a 20 country survey of public opinion in Central and Eastern Europe shows that 40% of people in the candidate countries see their future increasingly linked with Europe and only 17% favour closer ties with the United States. With the exception of the Baltics, all countries show majorities in favour of EU membership, with Romania (80%) and Poland (70%) taking the lead. Decision-makers/opinion- formers are generally much more positive (80%) about the EU than the general public (49%). With regard to the overall situation, 43% in the candidate countries believe that their country is now going in the right direction which is a 6% increase from last year. In the CIS, this figure is only 20%.
