  • [01] The Commission sets up a Business Environment Simplification Task Force (BEST)

    On the initiative of Christos Papoutsis, European Commissioner responsible for Small businesses, in agreement with President Jacques Santer, the Commission has today named the members and the Chairman of the Business Environment Simplification Task Force to be known as the BEST Task Force. The aim of the Task Force is to see how we can improve the environment of businesses by simplifying the regulatory and administrative burdens which businesses, particularly small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), have to bear with a view to increasing their job creation potential. The BEST Task Force will be chaired by Prof. Chris Evans, from the United Kingdom, one of Europe's leading biotechnology entrepreneurs and founder of a seed investment company.

    [02] Commission closes proceedings against State aid to Gemeinnützige Abfallverwertung GmbH

    The European Commission has decided today to close proceedings against aid which was awarded to Gemeinnützige Abfallverwertung GmbH (GAV) in Aachen. GAV is a non-profit oriented enterprise owned by Sozialwerk Aachener Christen e.V.. It is acting in the waste market by collecting both household and company recyclable waste, sorting it out and selling it as secondary raw material. In this sector, GAV competes with profit making private enterprises which alleged that GAV was acting aggressively on the market. The Commission concluded that GAV was not acting aggressively and that the arguments in favour of the aid outweighed the disadvantages for the internal market.

    [03] La Commission approuve un programme d'aides de trésorerie de la Sächsische Aufbaubank

    La Commission européenne a approuvé la modification du programme d'aides de trésorerie de la Sächsische Aufbaubank ("Liquiditätshilfeprogramm der Sächsische Aufbaubank") en faveur des entreprises du Land de Saxe. Ce programme prévoit l'introduction de trois nouveaux éléments dans le précédent programme, à savoir: l'octroi de prêts sous forme d'aides de trésorerie en vue du financement de besoins accrus de capital d'exploitation de PME saines ou assainies; en faveur des PME en difficulté, l'octroi de prêts sous forme d'aides de trésorerie en vue du financement de la reprise d'établissements menacés de fermeture, ainsi que le refinancement de crédits d'exploitation existants (réechelonnement de la dette) en vue de l'amélioration de la rentabilité.
