  • [01] "Votre entreprise et l'euro : un guide stratégique", une publication qui aide les PME à préparer le passage à l'euro

    La Commission européenne a publié une brochure accompagnée d'un CD-Rom intitulée "Votre entreprise et l'euro : un guide stratégique". Cette nouvelle publication analyse les conséquences stratégiques du passage à l'euro pour les entreprises. Elle se propose d'aider les petites et moyennes entreprises (PME) à procéder à leur auto-analyse, définir différentes solutions stratégiques et concevoir le plan de transition le mieux adapté à leur situation.

    [02] Commission approves Imetal's acquisition of English China Clays subject to conditions

    The European Commission has decided to approve the acquisition of English China Clays plc (ECC) by Imetal S.A. subject to certain changes. The operation had an impact on the markets for fused silica, kaolin and certain refractory clays. The companies have addressed the Commission's concerns by undertaking to divest ECC's activities in fused silica, an Imetal kaolin plant in the US and Imetal's AGS subsidiary in France. They will also submit a structural solution to the problem arising from their simultaneous presence on both the market for molochite, a unique refractory clay, and the market for kiln furniture, whose manufacturers need molochite. This transaction was also subject to US anti-trust approval granted by the Department of Justice in close cooperation with the Commission.

    [03] La Commission approuve l'acquisition de Magneti Marelli Manufacturing (Italie) par Denso Corporation (Japon)

    La Commission européenne a approuvé une opération de concentration par laquelle l'équipementier automobile japonais Denso acquiert le contrôle exclusif de l'entreprise italienne Magneti Marelli Manufacturing (MMM). L'opération porte sur plusieurs marchés de composants automobiles, à savoir: les démarreurs, les alternateurs, les moteurs d'essuie-glaces de pare-brise, les moteurs de ventilateurs pour systèmes de climatisation et les moteurs pour ventilateurs de radio. Avant l'acquisition de MMM, Denso ne possédait aucun site de production en Europe, mais elle y importe des composants fabriqués au Japon. L'opération de concentration envisagée ne crée ni ne renforce une position dominante.

    [04] Christos Papoutsis welcomes the British Coal Research Programme initiative

    European Commissioner for Energy, Christos Papoutsis, welcomes in a statement the British Government's and in particular Minister John Battle's Coal Research Programme initiative for the development of cleaner coal technologies. He further said : "This initiative is in the same vein as that of the European Union's Research and Technology Programmes, for example THERMIE in the 4th Framework programme which promotes clean electricity production and also that of the Key Action in the 5th Framework Programme where clean coal technologies are included. The objective of these new technologies is the radical cost reduction and improvement in the efficiency of coal use which will contribute substantially to more economic, cleaner and environmentally friendly measures for the 'dirtiest' fossil fuel. Having in consideration that potential near future markets for clean coal technologies would mainly be in third countries, the replacement in these countries of old technology coal power plants by advanced ones would extremely help environmental local and global objectives."
