  • [01] Commission clears TPG's (USA) take-over of Bally (Switzerland)

    The European Commission has authorised the acquisition by the American investment company Texas Pacific Group Partners II (TPG) of the Swiss company Bally International AG. Bally is a well-known manufacturer of high- fashion items such as clothes, shoes and accessories, but TPG has no activities in these sectors in the European Union.

    [02] Commission opens full investigation into the acquisition of AGA (Sweden) by Linde (Germany) in the industrial gases industry

    The European Commission has decided to open a full investigation into the proposed acquisition of AGA AB, Sweden, by the German company Linde Aktiengesellschaft in the industrial gases industry. The operation is considered in the context of an on-going global consolidation in the industrial gases industry. Areas of concern are, amongst others, the strong position Linde will obtain in Germany, the Netherlands and Austria.

    [03] L'Union européenne aide ses voisins de l'Est à combattre la criminalité

    La Commission européenne va lancer un programme de 4,5 millions d'euros pour aider les pays d'Europe centrale et orientale à combattre le trafic de drogue, le blanchiment d'argent, le vol de voitures et autres crimes et délits. La Commission se joindra à l'Association des écoles de police européennes aujourd'hui à Budapest pour présenter ce projet visant à améliorer le niveau de la formation policière dans ces pays. L'exercice de la police dans le respect de l'état de droit, des droits de l'homme et de la protection des minorités est un élément essentiel de l'objectif visé par l'Union européenne, qui consiste à instaurer une zone de liberté, de sécurité et de justice
